Just to let you know that all arrangements for the trip you organised for us to the Golden Ring worked perfectly and was a great success. The timings were just about right for us, the vehicle and driver were of excellent quality, and the guide spoke excellent English (just as well since our joint Russian was close to zero !!).

For your future reference, the 'At the Golden Gates' hotel was delightful: perfectly located in the centre of Vladimir, and recently refurbished to a high standard of decor. The lack of air conditioning was a bit of a problem, given that the temperatures were extraordinarily high, but not a huge issue.

Service and food were very good too, so we would unhesitatingly recommend it to future visitors to the town. And, of course, we loved all the towns and sights we visited - perhaps the highlight being that we happened, quite by chance, to visit Suzdal on the day of their annual 'cucumber festival'. So, in addition to enjoying the beauty of the town, it was wonderful to be able to join in with locals having fun - a great event.

So, thank you from all 4 of us.
