Reviews for Russia holiday, St Petersburg and Karelia


review 10 Dec 2017

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

Difficult to say, but I think the quality of the guides was really exceptional. The privilege of walking around with young and knowledgeable people who are very welcoming and can answer almost any question is very memorable. A guide who took us to a bagna in which we spoke like old friends. Another guide who explained about what she liked best herself in Saint Petersburg. Et cetera.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

You may end up spending quite a lot if like us you like a full program, but if you see the work that goes into all of this and the quality of what you will get, you will see this is actually really worth the money and more.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

All guides were real Russians loving to explain their country. We visited many places we would never have found ourselves and met Russians and Karelian on the way. Twice traveling with a night train was great as well. Environmentally friendly, but even more a nice adventure in this huge country.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?
