I just wanted to thank you and your company for the great service and assistance you gave us – arranging for our Russian cruise, air tickets for our group (six of us leaving from the States and two from South Africa), and arranging for our Russian visas .

We had a great time in Russia and it was much more than we expected! The cruise on The MS Chernishevskiy was a wonderful experience. In Moscow we (my husband, me, our four kids and my parents) went to see the Nutcracker at the National Russian Ballet Theater – fantastic!

Our family were the only one with little kids – remember my kids ages are 5, 6, 12 and 14 – and I thought that this might be a problem as most of the passengers were adults, but the staff of the MS Chernishevskiy tried their best to accommodate the kids. They made special dinner and lunch for the kids and the staff also added some special activities on the cruise to entertain the kids.

The person that took care of our group was very nice she could also speak English. She even got up at 4 the last morning to help us into the taxi that took us to the airport and say goodbye to us. On the cruise boat they kept us busy and we almost never had a moment to do nothing. The food was excellent and the cabins were very nice. The pictures that I have seen online doesn’t do them any justice.

The daily expeditions to the little towns/museums were very good and the tour guides could always speak very well English and had a very good knowledge about the towns. In St Petersburg we went to an Opera, Trinudat, at the Mariinsky Theatre and that was also very beautiful. Both cities are a must see and I would love to revisit Moscow again.

Thanks again for all your help and assistance, you were part of the package that made our trip such a success. I am still busy to sort out my pictures/photos but if you need any info on our cruise ship, our experience etc please do not hesitate to call me. I would also speak to any of your clients if they need more info on what to expect.
