Our tour of Sochi with Elena was one of the highlights of our trip. She was so knowledgeable, friendly and very fluent in English. We will enjoy watching the 2014 Olympics, having seen Sochi ourselves, with the help of Elena. The teahouse was lovely. Many thanks. Other cruise ship passengers should look at booking tours with tours by locals, they are less expensive than ship's tours and so much more interesting and geared to your interests.
