Feb. 2018 • Family
Our fantastic guide Valentin and his driver picked us up on time at our hotel, and took us to "Revolutionary hotspots" in the city. Valentin is so knowledgeable and provided us with both background, highlights and details around the Revolution(s) and the era of the Soviet Union. Remember to bring your passports! As we were to enter the Smolny Institute to see Lenin´s headquarters during the very first period after the Revolution - we were denied access as we hadn't brought our passports. Luckily, I had photos of our passports on my phone, so after what seemed to be a long argument, Valentin managed to talk them into letting us into the museum:-). Which was a very good thing since we found this visit to be the very highlight of the tour. At the end of the day, we were taken to this lovely restaurant called "Soviet Café" - a unique experience!

Dear Janette, Thank you so much for your review and sharing your experience. We value your support a lot. Valentin really enjoyed running a tour for you and was very fascinated by your son who in such a young age is a very enthusiastic student of history and politics. Russia has been through a lot of changes in recent years. However, and I am sorry you had to experience it, there are areas and institutions where it is still in "the stone age", especially when it comes to bureaucratic requirements. Please accept my apologies we did not remind you about a need to carry your passports with you. I am very happy you enjoyed your tour regardless of this delay.
