The trip got off to a slow start because after clearing Immigration and going up to the baggage claim on the escalator I fell and caused Lillian to also fall, but it was a most enjoyable trip.

The staff and guides were very professional and personal. The hotels Moscow and St. Petersburg were outstanding, not Five stars but Six stars!

The food on the Volga Dream boat was excellent, as was the staff. All in all a first class event.

The trip to Stockholm was also enjoyable. It was more or less a rest and recovery for us.

The hotel First Risen was in an excellent location, great breakfasts,staff was very attentive and helpful. The room not so good. Very small, the shower did not function properly. They did move us on the last day to a much nicer room. I am not sure the original room was the "upgraded" room we paid for. We were able to see and do a number of interesting things in Stockholm.

To sum up, we had a great trip. TAR was excellent!
