Classic Russia September 2017. 15th to 24th
We have just done the Classic Russia tour with an extra 2 days in St Petersburg. We went as part of a party of 8 fruends and have never been great fans of guided tours. We thoroughly enjoyed this well organised and most enjoyable tour with excellent hotel accommodation. The English speàking Russian guides were first class and had a wonderful sense of humour and a very in depth knowledge of their subjects. The Moscow guide was Tatiana and the St Petrsburg guide was Vera, both lovely ladies who made our trip even more enjoyable. We were very pleasantly surprised at Russia in general but mostly by the people. We would recommend this tour to anyone who has ever wondered what Russia is like. It's a wonderful place full of very rich history. Thank you Cox and Kings..
