Volga Dream cruise + Baltic States trip was fantastic

Lois Gold from United States traveled to Russia, Estonia, Lithuania in 2015

Volga Dream cruise + Baltic States trip was fantastic. Guides were outstanding. I was impressed that most of them had PHD or were otherwise in academia. I was also impressed with Travel All Russia's organization and responsiveness and website ease and accessibility.

We loved the Volga Dream cruise and Moscow and St Petersburg and the hotels were superb with over the top incredible breakfasts. Tallinn and Riga were great, though the Savoy hotel in Tallinn had poor air conditioning and tiny rooms. Hotels in Riga and Vilnius were very nice though we had very small room again in Riga, but great room in Vilnius. The Vilnius guide was very good and took us to Trakai Castle next day. I am pleased to report a spanking new black Mercedes showed up next day to take us for the 10 minute drive to airport!

The only thing we would have planned differently was to have gone home from Riga but my husband was curious about Lithuania. We were just tired toward the end and didn't find Vilnius as interesting a tourist city as Tallinn and Riga. Otherwise schedule was great and logistics were very good.

The trip more than fulfilled my expectations. I came away with a much greater understanding of Russian history and how it has shaped the Russia of today. It is a country that deserves our respect despite our different political ideologies I only hope that our Presidents can find the road back to cooperation and peacemaking to everyone's benefit.

Thank you for helping to plan a wonderful trip. I would highly recommend your company to anyone.
