    I had a truly brilliant time on the tour. Our guides were friendly, fun and knowledgeable and I got so much more out of the experience than if I had tried to travel alone.

    This was a very expensive trip,considering that all the tour cost covered was the tour leader leader &a accomodation everything else was extra,our guide in St Petersburg was superb but the guide in Moscow was very ordinary,level of accomodation was mediocre,Russian 4 star is over rated, be aware that any extra activities offered are charged at a premium,you can book and pay yourself and save big bucks,eg extra nights accomodation in the same hotel book yourself and save AUS$100,transport from airport 1/2 price of what they charge, be smart

    Hi Donna, thank you for your review, we value all our customer’s feedback to deliver the best service to our passengers as possible. In regards to transport from the airport, your tour includes the Airport transfer from St Petersburg airport to the Travel Talk hotel, it does not include airport transfer from Moscow hotel to Moscow Airport, you would have to arrange your own transfer, most of the time a group of people get together and hire a shuttle service to the airport. In regards to the extras, it's clearly mentioned on our website " As per the itinerary , Entrance fees not included " meaning everything indicated within the itinerary are included in the price of the tours, all entrance fees are not included and any other activities are not included it would be extra if you were interested in doing them. It also states Entrance fees to the sights and museums as well as Optional activities are not included. Thank you.
