the cruise was excellent . one of our friends went on a viking cruise and raved about so much we had to try one ourselves. it was so relaxing . we traveled on rivers. and the locks were amazing how they operated. we wer abo to go to many places that we would not ordinarily see. Uglich, Kizhi Onega Lake, Mandrogy, And Moscow and St. Petersburg were fantastic. . Experiencing local culture , visiting local familes and toasting with vodka. about 8 times. Visiting a banya, Palaces, . My wife an I even visited the Mikhailovsky Ballet.
The food was excellent, the service stupendous, and the guides are second to none. All of the tours were famtastic. , and we had plenty of time to traavel to all the places suggested by the guides. Alot of walking involved. But man was that great to walk in the city of Moscow and St. Petersburg.. so much fun and so much history. G R E A T>
