I really enjoyed the trip. We were very pleased with the hotels in St. Petersburg and Moscow. The accommodations were good and the breakfasts were lavish. But the best part was that both hotels were so well located.

The guides in both cities were knowledgeable. The Hermitage was so crowded that it made it difficult to see things, but I think we saw a good selection of city sites in the limited time available for the tours. I know several people in our group spent extra days in St. Petersburg and Moscow before and after our tour, and I wish we had done the same.

Everything was fine on the ship also, the Volga Dream Cruise met or even exceeded our expectations. The local guides were all good. My favorite activity on the ship were the lectures about Russian history and art. I also appreciated the big selection of food for breakfast and lunch.

I think our group of 19 got along well and it was also nice to mingle with the larger group of people on the ship.

My only suggestion is that on all the tours, in the cities and on the cruise, when possible, I would have preferred a bit less time on the bus and more time walking.

I would just add that I was impressed with the high quality of the tour services provided and the fineness and friendliness of the people who handled our tour. I particularly appreciated the very helpful assistance throughout the tour preparation process.

I will happily recommend your company to anyone who would like to travel in Russia. All things considered, I feel it was a great trip. Thanks for all your help in making it possible.
