It was an amazing week of our stay in Russia.

It all started with the fact that we just started to communicate with the company through the site.

It was very simple.

They answered within an hour.

This greatly accelerated our progress towards booking the tour.

We also booked extra tours which are offered as options and we never regretted it.

We were pleasantly surprised that we were given a discount when buying additional excursions.

In each city we were met by a very friendly representative of the company, on the way to the hotel they told us where the nearest store where you can eat, where to buy Souvenirs, etc.

The hotel in which we were accommodated was near the city center, very clean and insanely delicious Breakfast.

We liked Russian pancakes very much.

I advise them all to try)) We also liked to travel by train "Sapsan" between Moscow and St.

Petersburg.

It is very good that the departure was in the morning, and we had more time to walk around St.

Petersburg.

I recommend to everyone this tour with the company bienvenidos tours.

I was glad we chose this tour in St Petersburg and Moscow.

The tour guide Olga & driver Igor were exceptional! Olga was very knowledgeable, sweet and caring.

My entire family really enjoyed her as our tour guide.

We learned so much from her and I appreciated her honesty whenever she told us to be cautious of pickpocketing in certain areas.

Igor our driver was also very nice and sweet.

He made sure we were safe and always offered us water and wifi.

We didn't expect much about St.

Petersburg, but it exceeded our expectations.

The history was so rich, the sites were so beautiful, the food we tried were very delicious.

Highly recommend this tour! This tour deserves all the positive reviews! less....
