This day trip lasts all day from morning till late evening. It was a wonderful experience. We were picked up at our hotel in Moscow, driven to the station and shown where to catch our train for the nearly 2-hour ride to Vladimir, Where we were met by another driver and a very good guide. She spent the next 8 hours with us, showing us the sights, particularly beautiful Suzdal, so atmospheric. We had lunch with her and our driver in a traditional Russian house with the family. So nice. A lovely day out.

This was a really worthwhile tour. The train journey was an experience, we were met by a charming driver, and our guide went out of her way to make things pleasant for us. She answered all our questions, and showed us things we would never have discovered on our own. There was a minor hiatus when we arrived back to Moscow as we couldn't find our taxi driver - i would recommend taking his mobile number when he drops you off in the morning. Apart from that, a magical day out, one that will stay in my memories for a long time.
