Steven Sheffrin 5 star review | Travel All Russia

Treasures of Two Capitals July 2016

Steven Sheffrin from United States traveled to Russia

We had a wonderful time in both in Moscow and St. Petersburg. The hotels were both excellent and well located.

We especially appreciated the tour guides. In our case, we were in Group I and our two guides were superb with good senses of humor.

We also went to the Bolshoi (had purchased tickets before) and our guide helped us get last minute tickets to a ballet at the Mikhalofsky (sp?) near our hotel. Both superb.

The two optional tours we chose (convent/cemetery and Fabrege museum) were both very worthwhile.

St. Petersburg was crowded but that was to be expected at this time of year. Probably would have liked a bit more downtime in St. Petersburg, but there was so much to see.

The only thing we thought was not really that great was the Folk Show in St. Petersburg. Could have easily skipped that.

Thanks for your assistance! A great trip.
