We had a tour with Discovery Russia 1 week 2 capitals. We had a very good experience from booking to the end of the trip. The travel arranger Irine was very helpful in booking and visa letter invitation.
When arriving in St Pete everything was well arranged with the transfer to the hotel. Tour leader Alex greeted us and did the orientation for the tour. City guide Darya was very knowledgeable and helpful explaining all the details and answering all the questions with a smile on her face. She is an asset to the company.
Tour leader Alex was available whenever we needed him and he is also an asset to the company.
Igor, the tour guide in Moscow surprised us with his knowledge of the city.
Overall Discovery Russia was beyond our expectations. Thank you so much!
