This tour was the best I had in Russia. The visit to the Banya was worth the trip. The experience with the steam bath, and the Birch branches were more than I had expected. I can't think of anything similar in the states. We were in a real working steam bath. No tourist related frills, just real people doing what they do. Nikolai help us to understand the protocol and procedures, so we didn't look too much like tourists

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Duayne! I am glad you enjoyed esperience of traditional public Russian bath. I myself love the bath and with pleasure take my guests to some of them! Thanks. Niko.
