"I wanted to thank your company for organizing our tour in Russia. We were a larger party of 12 people with varying age ranges, but we all had an equally good time. We never felt rushed, or hurried, and the level of information and history was top notch. Transportation was excellent, and the van was meticulously kept and a very comfortable ride. We truly enjoyed Russia, and it was primarily because of our tour with you!"

Dr. Prema C. Moorthy, USA

"I am sincere in saying that everything could not have gone smoother or been more to our liking if we had made our arrangements in any other manner. You delivered everything you said you would from the experienced guide to the very comfortable air-conditioned Mercedes van. I cannot tell you how many times I have told my friends about the unbelievably long lines at each of the venues visited, yet, at each and every one we were able to walk right in without any delay whatsoever. The planning was done with incredible professionalism!"

Bob Rothman, USA
