Everything worked out better than we could possibly have imagined. The Grand Tour of Russia was the best tour of Russia we could find on the Internet. No any other..."

    The tour guides did very well in giving us a perspective of the culture and getting us into packed venues. The problems that I feel is not so much the tour as with Russia's sights. There is little of the diversity in culture, sites and scenery as in... Read more

    Unfortunately on the first day no tour bus was available, walking all day, which was exhausting. Poor planning. The Moscow portion was mostly visiting Russian orthodox Churches, very little else, even in the Kremlin. a more varied itinerary would be... Read more

    East West Tours commented on this review
    Dear Gerald, Thanks for your review. Unfortunately no transport is allowed in the Red Square and Kremin area so a lot of walking is required on the day when we visit these landmarks. You are right that there are a lot of churchs to bevisistied in the Golden Ring area, unfortunately this is the only attarction in the Golden Ring. We try to include more non-church activities in Moscow like Tratyakov Gallery, Moscow Metro and Cosmonauts Museum but in the Golden Ring, I admit, there is not too much variety. In St. Petersburg, on the contrary, the main attraction are palaces and museums, and yes, lots and lots of art. I am glad that you like the tour and Masha told me that she enjoyed your company a lot. She sends her best regards. Thanks, Dora P.S. I have some pictures of you and your group. Email me if you'd like to get them.
