Let me tell you what was GREAT about the trip:
The 3 guides were A+, I'm not sure who was better, all fabulous, very knowledgeable, enthusiastic and gave us a great side of Moscow. The second guide was also Great, she knew everything it is to know about Sergiev Posad and Vladimir. The guide in St. Petersburg had all it takes for anyone to get the best flavor from Saint Petersburg and its surroundings. The drivers were awesome, especially the one in Saint Pete.
There were a few notes that we made of what was bad and I'd like to make a couple of recommendations to your company:
The trip to Izmailovo Park should only be offered to tourists with kids, there is absolutely nothing to see or do to travelers our age, the Vodka museum is nothing but a big room with hundreds of bottles of vodka, and painting the matreshka dolls only proves my point.
The food served in the lunch in Sergiev Posad was not good not at all.
We were driven back from Vladimir by only the driver, he is a good driver but he almost speaks no English, for us was extremely difficult to communicate with him. A couple of the vehicles used had a strong cigarette smell, one of them was very hard to stand.
We were treated well overall, we will definitely go back to Russia for the soccer World Cup, especially to Saint Petersburg.
Thank you for all your help, you guys were great
