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

Red square and St Petersburg.

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

Plan in advance as the first hotel is far from the city and attractions. You need to use the underground to fully access the sites from so far away.

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

Yes

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

Very good.

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

Being able to walk around Red Square on a busy day, despite the rain! This, and having an overnight train journey from Moscow to Novgorod - very memorable! Upon arrival I was lucky enough to be given a mini-tour of Moscow by my airport pickup, free of charge - extremely friendly service that I've never had the likes of anywhere else.

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

Knowing a small amount of Russian goes a long way - might be worth making a handy guide to Cyrillic phonetics before you go

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

Novgorod is definitely a smaller city that most English-speaking tourists don't go through, so adding a little to the local economy there was definitely a plus.

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

Excellent experience, I'd highly recommend to anyone looking to explore a little more of Europe!
