Transfers were all on time and available which was important after a long train journey.
What was good was that all the transfers worked well and we did not have to worry. The hotels were excellent.
having Go Russia book hotels and train, oversea visa application and provide transfers was invaluable.
As we had children with us, we needed to be able to rely on the transfers working- if it was just me it is easy to jump into a taxi, but with children you need to be able to know things will run smoothly
I just wanted to thank you for your help in organizing the Transsiberian trip that I took in August. It was perfectly organized and really enjoyable. I was the only person using the ”independent” formula, but I really appreciated that Justgorussia put me and another passenger who was on the tour, in the same train compartment. As far as solo travel in these places, I enjoyed having the connection to your company and the others in the train. I also appreciated that your offers are kept within the budgets of average tourists, as many tour operators offer something which is not accessible to a lot of people.
