Trip started out disorganized. My boat never appeared. Two ships at dock both pointed to the other boat when I asked if theirs was my cruise. After lots of finger pointing in Russian, one boat welcomed me on board but never acknowledged that they were the boat operator on my ticket. No one accepted any responsibility. Since there were only two passengers on the entire boat, plus captain and two mates, the captain invited both of us into the bridge. He didn't speak any English (he was from Ajerbajan) but he was super nice and pointed out things in Russian for us to view and photograph. Periodically his Russian first mate used Google translate to identify some buildings on shore like International House of Music. They pulled a "audible" and took us farther than planned rather than returning to the departure spot, and then we walked to the Metro from there. They were very kind and helpful despite the confusion and having only 2 passengers. Great experience due to the kindness of the crew.
This tour was our best day in Moscow by far we had the perfect conditions with sunshine & heavy snow a few days before . But what made the day special was our tour guide Svetlana who was so easy to get a long with and nothing was too much trouble , from messaging us the night before and also when she was coming to pick us up we were always informed- Svetlana was the best tour guide . Once we got to the snowmobiles our instructor Andre showed us what to do , Andre was brilliant very easy going and a genuine warm personality he stopped at good spots for photos and had us laughing shaking the trees so it looked like it was snowing for the photos . The area we drove through was beautiful and we highly recommend this tour with the snowmobiles ask for Svetlana and Andre and you will have a great day . Once again a massive thank you to Svetlana from Moscow me and Andre at the snowmobiles Thanks Frankie & Jade
it was an easy booking and a fantastic outing. well worth the money. we may have had a luck as we were only 6 on the boat,
Great host and good safety introductions. It was a pity that there wasn’t more snow and colder.
It’s a wonderful and exciting experience for us, the guide was very nice and helpful.
