Juli Faoro, Australia: What an amazing company who looked after us so well on our 9 day Golden Ring TourWhat an amazing company who looked after us so well on our 9 day Golden Ring Tour. Nothing was too much trouble for them and always asking if we were happy and having a good time ... Our driver Vasily was fantastic and looked after us so well from showing all about the "Business Lunch" to "Old Woman" (meaning Grandma). I loved Russia ... I loved Discovery Russia and would have no hesitation to use travel with them again or recommend them to anyone ... Love you guys :) ... Juli Faoro :)
