    What can i say. Since the moment i made contact from Australia and was thinking of a new adventure in Russia the communication, the staff, the ease of use, the price all came into play. Out of that i received friendship, laughs, experiences, memories and of course A holiday I will cherish in more ways than one. If you're considering Russia. Yes. Do it. All the way, you will love it. Food, history, people, experiences (and of course a few cheeky drinks).
