The cultural aspect was the most important for me. All guides were absolutely phenomenal. They were knowledgeable and super friendly. They really made both tours incredibly rewarding for me.
Kate Reed
Especially good were the guides: Nadia (St Petersburg) Kate (Hermitage) Laura (Irkutsk) and Maria (Vladivostok) Olga (Yekaterinburg) was outstanding. All transfers between Trains and Hotels were as the itinerary and we were met exactly as arranged. \the drivers were all very helpful. We had been concerned as to whether we would manage on the trains without a guide - and with no Russian language - but everything was absolutely fine and we thoroughly enjoyed the trip. The meal provided in the Taltsy museum was a lovely surprise and very tasty.
Scott Thorpe
1) help getting a Russian Visa ( difficult embassy in Vietnam!) 2) appreciated the transfers with our early arrival and extended departure. 3) Punctuality of transfers and guides. 4) Good guides, especially Olga ( Yekatarinaburg) , Natasha ( St Pietersburg 5) help with extra tour and ballet tickets at short notice. Quick service 6) excellent, clear website for billing and instructions. 7) excellent hotels and great central locations to make self touring easy in the cities. Not one problem before or during the tour.

St. Petersburg Boat Trip with an Audio-guide A new perspective on St. Petersburg can be gained from water-level and the boat trips visit some areas of the city that might not be reached on ground. The looming silhouettes of the bridges, the grandeur of the waterways, the granite embankments with their various piers and slipways, the 18th and 19th century palaces and parks on the banks of the Neva and the canals, architectural landmarks in the form of the domes and spires of churches and cathedrals, visible from a long way off - all this contributes to the unique appearance of the "Venice of the North". The boat trip is with a recorded audio-guide.
