I have been meaning to let you know how much we enjoyed out trip to the Ukraine and to Russia. Ten days was not nearly enough! I would love to return to spend more time at the Tratyakov Gallery in Moscow and at the Museum of Russian Art in St. Petersburg - and the Hermitage too, of course. If you ever put a tour together with a concentration on Russian art - not just the beautiful icons - please let me know. I wish we had had enough time for a concert or ballet but the days were full as it was.
I also wanted to mention that our guide in Moscow was superb. She was knowledgeable, efficient, and took very good care of us. Our other guides were also good.
We all appreciated Travel All Russia's management of the visa problems the group from Michigan had. We finally figured out that the airline office in Michigan did not give them boarding passes for the second part of the flight - from Moscow to Kiev so they had to leave the restricted area in Moscow to check in and receive boarding passes for Kiev - and this required them to use their one entry visa into Russia. Thus, the problem with trying to re-enter Russia after our stay in Kiev. Bill & I left from New York & received boarding passes for both the NY-Moscow flight and for the Moscow-Kiev flight so we did not have to leave the secure area in Moscow & had no problem re-entering Russia. The group from Michigan were full of praise for your efforts to help them obtain new visas as quickly as possible.
