Well organized, a lot of free time, more so than other trips I have been on previously. The tour guide wasn't with us 24/7 in Moscow.
Disappointed in the "age range" of group. Everyone seemed to go off and do there own thing, so if you went to meet people specifically you would have left disappointed.
Highlights was Kremlin/Red Square, Suzdal and of course St. Petersburg. St. Petersburg is a beautiful city.
The overnight train to St. Petersburg took 14.5 hours, which is far too long. On arrival we had a quick lunch and then city tour. Therefore you really lost a day in St. Petersburg arriving in the afternoon. Maybe you should consider getting the earlier train at 7.30 p.m. arriving St. Petersburg at 6.30 a.m., have breakfast then city tour. At least in the afternoon people would have a choice to rest or go sightseeing and therefore feel that you haven't lost a day. Alternatively add an extra day to the trip to accommodate the shortfall. Two days in St. Petersburg is not enough

Enjoyed most aspects of this. Good way round to do it, may have been disappointed with Moscow if done last. Liked seeing some of the countryside on the Golden Ring. Guides and drivers helpful. Busy cos height of season, but queues not too long. Hermitage was fine, would have liked longer there but too much to see, could have done without too much emphasis on Rembrandt and Da Vinci. Enough time on own.
Others on trip were fine, there was the serial complainer and the two who were always late

Excellent locations, great to see Golden Ring towns and superb accommodation. Would have liked a bit longer in Moscow, otherwise no criticisms. Tour leader Nikolay worked hard for us from start to finish and did a great job overall.

There are few trips to choose between in Russia and most focus on Moscow and St Petersburg so this was a slightly longer trip adding in the Golden Ring. Tour guides focussed very much on the Tsars. I would have liked to have had a broader experience of Russia. We spent additional time after the trip ended in St Petersburg which allowed us to attend the Museum of Political History which was incredible, bringing together footage and artefacts from 1800 to the present day. Don't miss this. I've suggested it be part of the main tour. Russia is truly stunning. Supplement the church focus with your own broader reading if you can.

It is a busy tour however you do have time to wander around Moscow and St Petersburg by yourself. I would recommend the holiday. I enjoyed travelling with the group even though I was by myself.

The beautiful golden onion domes, icons and frescoes, bell ringing and glimpses of the real Russia outside the big cities. The Kremlin (especially after reading Red Fortress by Catherime Merridale ) the beautiful jewels in the armoury as well as the splendours of St Petersburg - the Hermitage, Yusipov Palace and Pushkin - don't miss the gardens.

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.

Tours are well planned. Explore Leaders are excellent. You pack a lot into a short time.
