We are very happy to have served thousands of happy customers who travelled with us.
The whole visit was well planned and good in operation. Each day had a key event with time to do our own things. Showing us Red Square and the Metro on day one was a good start which enabled us to travel to other areas confidently.
The service of the Guides and our Driver were good and vital to our enjoyment of the City of Moscow and to see as much as possible in the duration of our stay. Star City was interesting and the Technician who guided us around the facility was informative and polite. I would not hesitate to consider using Just Go Russia again as we would both like to return to Russia.....We thank you for assisting us through the duration of our booking
