Our tour guide was extremely good and totally adjusted to our wishes. ***** The lunch offered in a "fine" Russian restaurant was unfortunately a "tourist trap". Starter: Russian salad (ok), cabbage soup (ok) Main course: tasteless chicken breast with cold noodles and tomato sauce (was neither Russian nor good). Dessert: vanilla ice cream (ok). All in all - an eventful day, but unfortunately overpriced! € 480 for a group of three, considering the local prices, is considerably too expensive.

Incredible place! Beautiful and full of richness!

We had a great day, saw unbelievable places!!! We booked 2 guides because we had a mixed language groupe. We just choosed that way to see the city because they offered us Portuguese and German as guides. The comunication with the company was very good. We booked in advance over 6 months. Got the confirmation about the guides, pick up and visum for 13 people. Unfornatuanly one day before, while we were in the cruise, we got the information that they couldn't offer a potuguese speaker guide and that they never could do that, this language were never available. 6 months longer... they did not informed us. I had to translate To Portuguese, what was tyring and not that enjoyable. But the only way. We had 4 eldery people in the group, so we got to late for the last atraction and could not get in. Wathever, not the foult of the guides for the false information about the language... the girls were brilliant. They did a very good job! Explained very well and were very friendly and patient.

recommendable

Despite a short-term booking two days in advance, everything was well organized. My German-speaking guide received me on time in my hotel. From 10am to 6pm I saw all the major sights and had a very good lunch. My tour guide had excellent knowledge and made the tour an all-round successful day.
