    Moscow and St Petersburg with Elena from Red Sun Tours - BEST TOUR EVER!!!  
    Author Picture

    Elena, thank you so much for such a great tour. Every day was really exciting. We learned so much with you.
    I just want to forward this letter to other travelers who might read it and take one with you. St Petersburg and Moscow tour is exactly what you need. We visited the Catherine Palace and Elena really helped us avoid the crowds. You have no idea how many people there were waiting to get in. Peterhof was simply gorgeous. I'm really sorry we had so little time. Moscow on the second day started with Sapsan. That was fun. Never thought trains in Russia are that good. Kremlin was bigger than I expected. We visited three cathedrals. Unfortunately we were not allowed to go deeper in the grounds but overall experience was fun. The third day was very memorable as well since we went to the Hermitage Museum. Elena is highly educated. She knew everything through and through.
    Again, couldn't recommend this tour more. If you come to Russia, take it!

    An amazing tour of Moscow and St Petersburg

    We were a group of 6 friend doing a nine day tour of Russia.
    Elena from Red Sun Tours organized a driver and guide in both cities. With her expertise and knowledge of history and culture she tailor made the tour according to our interests giving us a true insight into Russia. We saw the best of what each city had to offer. She organized guides with excellent command of English and all entry tickets were pre-arranged so that we didn’t have to wait in cues. Nothing was an effort for her. Highly recommend her company for the best experience.
