Our Trip Leader was absolutely charming, knowledgeable, enthusiastic. We loved having her leading a trip in her own country.

This was a fabulous trip...one of the best. The itinerary is wonderful. Our leader was superb. Our local leaders were also wonderful and brought Russia to life for me.
— Fran G., Floral Park, NY
A wonderful trip with many special moments. The interaction with Russia beyond the cities was a key. The interactions with the Russian people, our trips through the countryside were most valuable.
— Michael M., Atlanta, GA
Terrific. I'm amazed at how much we saw and did, and how very well planned everything was. This really was an outstanding experience, start to finish—we have come to believe that Wilderness Travel is at the very top of the industry.

This trip was an amazing experience. I expected to be impressed by the Hermitage, the Onion Domes, the sheer scale, but I felt that this trip gave us access to the people: how they live, their love of their culture, their hardships. I remain extraordinarily impressed by the service and planning provided by Wilderness Travel.
— Jarmila Z., La Grange, IL
The itinerary was excellent and provided a thorough and enjoyable Russian experience. For the most part, we felt that we spent enough time in each location to explore it and to come away with a good knowledge of the city or site.

Trip of a lifetime. Couldn’t be better.
— Nancy H., Soda Springs, CA
The trip far exceeded our expectations and we are recommending it to all our friends. The dinners with the Russian families were the high point of the trip.
— Francisco L., Makati City, Philippines
This is one of the most interesting Wilderness Travel trips I have ever been on, and highly recommended for anyone wishing to get a feel for the real Russia. The Russian history seen and experienced was inspirational and fascinating.
— Jerry D. T., Laredo, TX
The access to Russian locals, including dinners at local houses, made this tour exceptional.
— Beverly R., Lawrenceville, NJ
I came home with a good sense not only of Russian history and art, but with an idea of what it's like to live in Russia today. I particularly liked the meals with local families—a nice way to talk with people about their current lives.
— M. Satinsky, Durham, N.C.
This was my second trip with WT and I didn’t think anything could rival the first, but this trip did. The highlights were the three dinners in family homes, meeting Russians, and learning about their lives.
