I have nothing but good things to report. We absolutely loved St. Petersburg, going to Peterhof, the Kirov Ballet, hostel was a little too much like a dorm for our taste and the price, but the people were nice. The two days we spent in the Hermitage were well worth it and most enjoyable.
Moscow was good, too. Of course, we couldn't do too much, as it was such a short stay, but one of the highlights was visiting Leo Tolstoy's home.
After we arrived back in St. Petersburg, we were able to take advantage of a White Night's cruise on the Neva river at 1 am on 11 June.
All and all, I think we were pleased with what we were able to see and do. Thanks again for your attention to our trip, the arrangements went very well.
The train was great, easy to find our seats and 2nd class almost like 1st, thoroughly enjoyable.
Thanks again and best wishes
