Järjestelyt olivat erinomaiset ja kaikki toimi loistavasti. Opas oli aivan huipputapaus ja tiesi tolkuttoman paljon asioista ja historiasta. Olisimmepa vaan pystyneet ottamaan edes murto-osan siitä tiedosta, jota hänellä oli. Saimme hyvän yleiskuvan Pietarista, sen historiasta ja aarteista. Eli suuret kiitokset erinomaisesti organisoidusta matkasta ja oppaalle erityiskiitos! Read more

We are back home in Delhi and would take this opportunity to thank you so much for a warm reception and your gracious hospitality on our recent Russia tour. Without your advice and constant attention to detail, we would not have enjoyed and learned ourselves nearly so much about your beautiful country. You were so considerate by helping us make the best use of our limited time to see the country and learn more of the Russian culture. Thank you again for such an enjoyable time in your country. You can be sure the communities and families in our country will hear of your country and the wonderful hospitality. Read more

Jeg synes du skal vide, at vi har haft en fantastisk ferie i Sankt Petersborg. Hotellet lå et godt sted, havde gode store værelser og fin morgenmad. Vores guide Tanja var altid til tiden, godt forberedt og meget vidende og samtidig rigtig rar. Vores største positive overraskelse var dog almindelige russers hjælpsomhed og venlighed, som vi blev mødt af dagligt på gader og i metroen. Alt i alt en stor oplevelse i en skøn by, hvor vi slet ikke kunne nå alt det, vi havde sat os for. Det bliver forhåbentlig en anden gang. Tusind tak for en fantastisk ferie fra os alle 4.
