To see Russia personally, and it was more than our expectation. The country was just like any other European countries. Transportation was easy and friendly. Our only wish was to have had chance to have a half day free time to explore Moscow by our self.
People were kind and friendly and the country was rich culturally, The host visit was an excellent idea and an eye opening for us.
Viking did a beautiful job to introduce the host country's culture.
The museums was breathtaking and we appreciate that opportunity given to us. Not to forget the Moscow night option was also an excellent one.
Our congratulation to the master chef for serving a variety of Russian foods and some menu from neighboring states.
our only concern was when Viking offered excursions in Russia there should have been a bold statement about obtaining Russian visa long ahead of time so we could have plenty time for application to be processed.
