    Surly recomended

    Our driver was very polite and professional, it took us around an hour and a half to get there, but it was ok. We enjoyed the trip. Our guide showed us great churches and cathedrals, we even went to the local market. Very interesting place! Surely I recommend to everybody!

    Great Site

    Our driver picked us up from our hotel in Moscow and drove us out to Sergiev Posad. He spoke English and was very informative on local landmarks etc. The van was quiet and comfortable. Our guide at Sergiev Posad very knowledgeable and gave a great tour while explaining the history of the site. Highly recommend this tour.

    Der Service und die technische Unterstützung (App, Mail) waren top! Alles hat perfekt geklappt. Unser sehr netter Fahrer Alexander war super pünktlich und brachte uns sicher and Ziel. Dort erwartete uns Svetlana, die in perfektem Deutsch mit enormer Sachkenntnis durch das beeindruckende Kloster führte. Ein Erlebnis! Alexander wiederum zeigte uns einige Geheimtipps, die wir so nie erlebt hätten. Wunderbare Tour!
