    4.5 - Excellent

    The G Adventures tour we booked through Tour Radar was excellent with an outstanding CEO. We did have a 'Tour Radar' issue with the second night of post-tour accommodation in Moscow. We paid Tour Radar for this accommodation months before the tour but the accommodation hadn't been booked for us. On our last night in Moscow we found we had no accommodation, but fortunately the hotel was able to fit us in though we had to pay them directly. Tour Radar did reimburse us when we showed the evidence of our original booking and payment, but it was an issue that shouldn't have happened.

    5.0 - Excellent

    A great itinerary that covers the 2 major cities of Russia, plus some less-travelled locations. Many beautiful churches in various sites are covered, plus other areas of historical & cultural significance. Highlights included the Kinerma village visit & cooking class, the Matryoshka painting workshop, and the numerous culinary experiences facilitated by our excellent CEO, Alex. He made the difference between a good and excellent tour - great local tips at each stop, enthusiastic attitude, and even managed to organise last-minute ballet tickets at the acclaimed Bolshoi theatre! Accommodation is reasonable for the price / locations (as some stops have limited options). Consider spending an extra 1-2 days in St Petersburg/Moscow before/after the tour (speaking as someone who didn't, but managed to cram lots into the free time allocated during the tour)!
