    3.5 - Good

    The tour was good. The lack of double accomodation really upsetting. Why do couples only get twin rooms when there were doubles available in that price range when the booking was made. And we asked for a double from Explore. Also being charged 3 x the room rate for an extra night was a rip off. Luckily we were able to cancel and book the room ourselves. Still not acceptable and has soured our opinion of the tour. Seems there were too many layers of tour companies as we find out that Explore use a Russian company to book everything though that wasn’t made clear at the beginning. Tour radar were very transparent that the tour was an a Explore one. Shame about the rest. However we had a lovely time and met some great new friends.
    Explore! commented on this review
    Thank you for your comments Suzanne, I’m really pleased to read that you had a good time overall in Russia, and you made some great new friends during your travels. Due to the nature of our group adventure trips, the standard bed configuration is ‘twin’ bedded rooms, and as we advised you before your departure, we simply cannot guarantee that a double bed will be available, and that this would be on a request basis only. Please be assured that a request was made correctly with our Local Agent and the hotels, in good time; however I’m genuinely sorry that on this occasion they were not able to fulfil this preference. With regards to the hotel price for your post tour accommodation, sadly there will often be cheaper (or more expensive) rooms available online, and on this occasion we simply couldn’t match the price that you able to find elsewhere – if we could, we certainly would have done. I am pleased to see though that my colleagues assisted you in cancelling your additional night’s stay in Moscow, with no cancellation charges on this occasion so that you were able to take advantage of this cheaper price found. I hope you can appreciate that, given that we operate trips in over 100 countries worldwide, it is not always possible for us to be in a position to make the detailed arrangements we need to from the UK, and it is for this reason that we employ professional Local Ground Agents to assist us in this respect for some elements of your trip such as the accommodation, transport and leaders. Thank you again for your feedback and we do always take the points raised very seriously. Kind regards, Ciaran Whelan
