    Unfortunately, until I had booked and paid did it come to light that this 8 day tour was in fact the last part of a 37 Scandinavian Topdeck Tour. That meant everyone had already bonded, formed groups and shared memories. I felt like it was an uphill battle trying to make friends with established groups in 8 days. Additionally, I was only 1 of 3 people who joined on the tour in Russia, making us the minority. Not enjoyable!

    Monika is absolutely the tour guide of not only the year but a lifetime! Her professionalism, expertise and social nature made my tour the experience of a lifetime! Monika is naturally an outgoing and friendly person so she thrives in this work environment. Her approach to providing our group with opportunities for incredible memories was sensational. They say travel is not about the places you go but the people you meet and I am so privileged to have met Monika through my tour. She works hard but never made it look like work. She is passionate, creative and professional. Monika made each day fun, exciting and educational. Collectively, through Monika, we all learned so much about ourselves and the places we were visiting. Monika is an outstanding individual and is so deserving of the title Tour Guide of the Year!

    Monika, as my tour guide, has had such a significant and positive impact on my life! She helped me discover Russia and learn so much about myself, this fascinating culture and the world around me. Monika is rich with knowledge and constantly seeks to learn more. She willingly shares valuable, relevant and interesting information about people, places and things. Monika is extremely approachable and makes a big effort to connect with all members of our group both individually and in group situations. Monika was the glue that helped the individuals traveling on our tour transition swiftly into a cohesive family unit. Her bubbly, compassionate and generous personality made traveling feel like home. Monika's sense of humour and jovial nature made each day memorable and full of laughter and smiles! Her spirit and passion for her work and for ensuring that our group had the experience of a lifetime is mesmerising! This was my second tour with Monika and I specifically made sure I was on her tour this year because of how fantastic my first 36 day tour was with her. I cannot imagine any person being more deserving of tour guide of the year! Monika is an inspiration and sets the benchmark for the definition of an amazing tour guide!
