Flawless from beginning to end. From the driver who picked us up from our hotel to hand deliver us to our train car, to the pick up on the other end in Vladimir, our drivers were engaging and fun and professional. Our guide for the day was knowledgeable and entertaining. She shared cultural experiences as well as historical facts and it made all the difference to our experience. The return trip to Moscow via train was equally easy due to the care provided by our drivers who ensured we knew which car to enter and at the final stop, they were waiting for us at the train car in Moscow to take us back to our hotel. it is a long day, but I am so glad that we went and that we decided to take the train option instead of traveling in Moscow traffic. This company provided excellent service and I highly recommend them.

Had a great day with Lilia. Interesting to see countryside, wooden houses and old churches/monasteries.

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.
