Barbara Shrewsbury 5 star review | Travel All Russia

Venice of the North Family Trip

Barbara Shrewsbury from United States traveled to Russia

The trip was wonderful. There were NO negatives. The tour guide/translator in Georgiyevskiy was a tremendous help. Her flexibility was very much appreciated. I especially liked her meeting us at the airport for our return trip to St. Petersburg to help us navigate the check-in process.

The Crown Hotel was newly renovated and the breakfast was good. We especially liked the Petro Palace Hotel. We met the only other American who was surprised to find another American there. He asked how we found the hotel telling us the Americans don't know about that hotel. I'd stay there again and recommend it. It was within walking distance to everything.

Our guide was knowledgeable and since she lived in the U.S. her English was perfect. The drivers were also good. Everyone was prompt which meant a lot to us.

We want to say a special thank you to the person who got the tickets to the symphony. The seats were excellent!! It was a perfect ending to a very special trip.

We lived in Asia and have traveled extensively in both Europe and Asia. We were impressed by Travel All Russia. You helped me put this trip together quickly enabling me to finally meet my new Russian family.

Thank you,
