I never felt concerned about arrangements and all seemed to go smoothly once we were on the trip.
Jack Cross
All the transport transfers worked seamlessly, which is what I was mostly concerned about (taxi hell at airport). The accommodation was excellent, very comfortable, very friendly, and at the Katerina City in particular excellent food.
Tamara Mcdonald
The transfers to and from the hotels/railway station/airport were flawless. Staff and drivers were very prompt and courteous. I couldn't fault any aspect of the holiday whether it be the booking process or the representatives both here and in Russia. Very satisfied with how everything went and I wouldn't hesitate to use your company again.
Darrin Schwartz
having Go Russia book hotels and train, oversea visa application and provide transfers was invaluable.
Gordon Bass
The ability to have a independent tour was great and clear instructions beforehand
Victor Boone
CB-14 was excellent for independent travellers. You perfectly took care of the difficult parts: organised the visas, transport, hotels and transfers while leaving us to explore the cities of Moscow and St Petersburg independently.
Myron Floyd
Quick and helpful responses to all our queries. Good accommodation - very central. Ability to offer a flexible trip so we could do our own thing. The overnight train was great fun - breakfast was included on the train too. Thank you - we had a fantastic trip that we will all remember for a long time.
Andrea Simmons
We were on CB-14, so travelling fairly independently. However, the aspects that Go Russia were responsible for all went smoothly and the transfers were very punctual. So, well done.
Melissa Ross
Travelling by myself on an independent tour, it was important to have reliable transfers and contacts throughout the trip. GoRussia guided me via multiple emails through the booking process, and every transfer was on time. I particularly want to thank the train transfer driver who waited an hour at the station and walked to the platform to check I had found my carriage - very thoughtful and thorough service!
Caroline Bowman
The fact that we could opt out of the organised tours, so had flexibility and independence, whilst knowing there was a contact if anything went wrong. The service before going was also excellent and I feel, given the standard of accommodation etc, this represented outstanding value for money. It helped make this an amazing trip and I would recommend Go Russia to anybody.
