    Small groups are best for me so this trip was extra good - I don't like to have more than 10 in a group.

    It would be nice to include some sort of local interaction and maybe some local handicraft such as toy/doll making in the towns which are famed for Russian doll making. This would provide a bit more variety to the famous sights and the more 'Touristy'... Show more

    Might be good to have 1 extra day in Moscow, on Golden Ring and in St Petersburg to make it a 2 week trip. Overnight train not really worth the extra time it took - would have preferred driving through countryside and villages. Would be interesting to... Show more
