My wife and I took the river cruise from St Petersburg to Moscow on the Leonid Tolstoy. It was a great trip for value for money. We had a large suite which we recommend. The food and tours on the cruise were excellent and well managed. the cruise staff were extremely friendly and helpful. We also can say our service from Express to Russia was faultless. They handled everything in a friendly and responsive way. Our contact was Galina and she was terrific in giving information and arranging such things as transfers.
For value we would recommend this trip to anyone.
