‘Just back from our excellent trip – i spent more time in Uzbekistan, then Germany and Iceland and am now returning to Melbourne as I write from Hongkong. 

The organization of all hotels, stays, transfers and guides has been punctual, reliable and helpful in organising extra outings, we were very happy with all. The guide’s English was good, especially I would like to stress that our guide Tatiana in Ulan Ude, Lena in Irkutsk and Lena in Moscow were outstanding. Their excellent knowledge, exceptional English and pleasant nature made the stays a pleasure, even if in Irkutsk we were in – almost – a blizzard!!!

Should have stayed longer to gain some more inside knowledge! All in all we had a terrific trip and found it very interesting and worthwhile. I would appreciate if you could pass on the good feedback to the guides.’
