The tour of Russia was itself amazing. We saw many things yet the pace was nice and relaxing. The Kremlin, Red Square, the Church of our Saviour in Moscow, and yes the subway stations (!), Suzdal, the Trinity Lavra, the Hermitage (it does make Versailles look like a cottage!), the boat ride on the canals, St Isaac's, the list goes on. We enjoyed every minute.
The hotels were excellent. Both the St Regis in Moscow and the Grand Hotel Europe in St Petersburg are fantastically located, both very central - could not be better. The St Regis is only a couple blocks from Red Square. The St Regis is more modern while the Grand Hotel Europe is older but still very elegant. In both, the staff were wonderful. I highly recommend both.
A very special commendation to our guides and drivers. Not only were all three knowledgeable, professional and helpful, but they were all a delight to spend time with. We very much enjoyed their company. And they took very good care of us!! We were able to completely relax and enjoy our trip all because they were so attentive. I can't say enough good things about all three. They deserve tour guide awards!
All-in-all, what a holiday! I fell in love with Russia.
