We had a great trip!

Here is a summary:

1. As a person who had exposure in many Chinese-translations of Russian culture and arts, it was exciting for me to finally see the real oil paintings of the Russian artists. The tour guides in both Moscow and St. Petersburg were great and very knowledgeable.

2. The hotels in both Moscow and St. Petersburg were great, very close to the places to visit.

3. Food service and the staff on the boat were super. We a kind appreciated the companies, too. Maybe we had to shorten some excursions due to the nature of the participants, but we had interesting exchanges with some and they all have had unique experiences and accomplishment in their lives.

4. The activities on the boat were adequate and kept us busy. The most interesting part is probably the intent of the cruise to introduce Russian to the visitors. We enjoyed the local visits and the lectures given by the professor.

One suggestion for the river cruise, though, there can be some daily exercise of certain form for the people who like to be physically active, since the boat lacks space for jogging or walking.

In general, this is a unique cruise we will always remember, and we finally visited Russia with exposures to probably the best and Russian country life.

Thank you very much for all the services you had provided.
