- We packed so much in to every day and did lots of extra things but also had sufficient free time for me to go to places on my list. The weather was terrific and Russia is full of flowers at this time of year which made it extra special. Im not a great fan of the 'group meals' approach!Elena was indefatigable. She was there 24/7 and really worked extremely long hours to see we were all ok. She went well beyond what was expected and was always attentive to individual needs and requirements. I have learnt the whole history of Russia from her and she was very willing to share her own life experience.
