Our Banya and Sergiev Posad experience was incredible!!! Both our tour guides, Sergey & Andrew was very friendly, timely, and super easy to get along with. They told us about the history,folklore, and traditions concerning the places and activities we were getting involved with. The food was also very local Russian and was delicious. Was definitely a very informative, yet extremely relaxing experience for us in Russia. One of our highlights for sure!!!
