A Recent Review of this tour

We and our friends had toured with Elina the previous day, so when they left and it was just the 3 of us, we knew we were in for a treat. Elina is very knowledgable, very organized, and her English is impeccable. She was also very helpful in organizing tickets for the ballet and the Russian folk performance, including setting up a taxi for us that night and delivering tickets to us the next day, even though she was no longer our guide. We really enjoyed our time with her and recommend her to all!
