    I think you should skip the stop in Veliky Novgorod- it was not interesting enough. The 2 hour waiting to see Lenin was also a waste of time.

    Vasily is an excellent tour leader, he is very knowledgeable, funny and extremely helpful. He gave us excellent ideas of what to do on our free time and help us with any questions we had. I cannot recommend him enough. I am a very happy customer.

    I really did enjoy the tour except the stay in Novgorod. It was not bad but I would rather have spent more time in St. Petersburg.

    A great introduction to Russia! The tour leader was super knowledgeable and was able to answer any question we had about the country. Would definitely recommend, the guided trip to the Hermitage was a real highlight
