09 Jan Moscow and Golden Ring Private Tour, review by Shan
It was not the first trip to Russia made by Shan, but this private tour was a special one because Shan decided to show Russia to his mother. What impressed us is that Shan learns Russian and knows about Russian culture, history and traditions quite well. We hope that he will continue exploring Russia with us.
“ExploRussia came strongly recommended to us by word of mouth, and we are very pleased to have booked with them.
As meticulous planners, we appreciated ExploRussia’s attention to detail on the little but important things. Such as the helpful tips with our itinerary, to make the most of our limited time. Or the sterling concierge service, which helped us secure a table for dinner at the Central House of Writers, and two of the last remaining tickets to a delightful Christmas Eve production of Snegurochka at the Stanislavsky Theatre!
What made for a truly memorable trip, however, was the whole cultural experience. We were thoroughly delighted with the hugely knowledgeable local guides ExploRussia arranged for each stop of our Golden Ring tour: guides with a palpable sense of passion for their subject area – be it Orthodox church history and architecture, old irons or antique enamels!
Большое Спасибо to the ExploRussia team for looking after us so well. And special thanks to Anna in particular for providing us with fascinating insights into all things Russian, and for being such excellent company in general!
PS. ExploRussia collaborate with Urban Adventures in Moscow on a number of walking private tours. We signed up for the Moscow Underground tour, which was definitely another highlight of the trip!”
