A Recent Review of this tour

After spending the day in the Moscow City Center, it was nice to see the suburbs and get a feel for life in a smaller town. It was also great to experience the monastery and get a flavor of the history and culture of Russian Orthodoxy. Victoria was knowledgeable and very friendly. We enjoyed meeting her and finding out about her life in Moscow.
