I highly recommend seeing with a guide. Oleg was awesome!

I think it was money well spent. As you drive around to the different sights you get so much more out of it than just the church etc. Very professional. Nice clean comfortable vehicle. Extremely knowledgeable local guide. We then spent a lot of time exploring on our own but got the details from the tour.

Absolutely brilliant. Stan was fantastic, so knowledgeable and happy to discuss all kinds of Russian history. As we travelled in winter we were the only two people on the tour, however he has a small, very clean and comfortable van which would be fine in a small group. I run two tourism businesses myself and this tour was exceptional value for money, very interesting and perfectly timed. Highly, highly recommend!!!!

Our guide was amazing!

Our guide Oleg greeted us with enthusiasm and he continued to be a friendly, fantastic and knowledgable guide for the whole day. He took us to some fabulous places and gave us so much history about each place and Russia. He was a local and his English was perfect. Can't imagine anyone could have been a better guide! Thanks so much Oleg!
