- 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
