I saved lots of money choosing my own hotel (some tour companies won't allow this) and was able to pick and choose what I wanted to do. The guides were knowledgeable, the drivers superb, and all details attended to with a smile. They are very competitively priced but what I liked best was the ability, with good advice, to set my own itinerary and make it a very personal tour of the sites most interesting to me. I highly recommend working with Maria T. I made changes once I was in Russia and added activities and the extra charge was quite minimal. Everything she promised came true. I've used private guide companies all over the world; Maria T is the best I've worked with. The guides were good and comparable to guides all over the world, but the planning and cost with this company gets five stars. RJB Columbus Ohio.
St. Petersburg and Moscow in May
I was met at St. P airport the night of the biggest holiday of the year by the driver and delivered to my out of the way hotel safely and quickly. I was interested in military history and made many changes to my itinerary through the planning stages and they were excellent at accommodating me.
