How was your Explore Tour Leader?
We had 2 leaders, one for Moscow and one for St Petersburg. They both were very informative on Russian history. Elena especially made it very interesting.
What tips would you give to someone else booking this tour?
Have a look at the temperatures on line the day or so before you go, it was unseasonably cold for us and we needed our thermals. Don't automatically book all the optional trips, it's leaves very little free time if you do - and there is lots to see and it is very easy to get around on your own.
Do you have anything else to add?
"The final meal was a disappointing end to the holiday. If the guide suggests 'Idiot' give it a miss. Food was below average,it was over-priced and we were all on little tables rather than sitting together.
If you have some spare time in Moscow go to the Sculpture Park, it is fascinating to see where all the communist leaders statues have ended up. The modern art gallery in the park is also well worth a visit.
In St Petersburg the Artillary Museum is excellent, plenty to keep the men entertained."
