Dear Jane S, You have written such a detailed review! We were reading it like a fairy tale with a scamp cruise company with very expensive tours and a knight in shining armor (this is Best Guides) with a great Happy tour for reasonable price! It was amazing story, we are really glad you enjoyed your tour from the very beginning till the end with an added bonus! Luckily there is Google which knows everything and our company as well! We are happy that you were impressed by our high rates on Tripadvisor and decided to choose Best Guides! We guess you were filled with new information about our country so now you can help our guide if you would decide to return in Russia)) Looking forward to see you again among our guests!
