We were picked up from the hotel on time and brought near the boat dock. Our guide spoke perfect German. After a short wait we were able to enter the excursion boat. The reserved table was perfect, right by the window, with a great view. During the trip our guide explained everything worth seeing with lots of background information. The boat travel time was around 4 hours. Because of the cozy food - in very good quality - the time passed in a flash ... optional cocktails did their job ... All in all, highly recommended. However, we found it very unusual that the pick-up from the hotel, the boat trip with dinner and a guide were offered or ultimately "sold", but that the "return transport to the hotel" was neither included nor organized. The guide can't help it here. Of course, he immediately organized a transport ... (by the way, this costs € 15.00 to the hotel in the city center)
We enjoyed this activity very much and everything went smoothly, however we had paid for a return taxi to our hotel but the taxi driver insisted we pay so this was disappointing and rather spoiled the evening. Also very loud music but it was fun. We were told there was ballet but we didnt see any but we left at around 2am and the show would continue
In addition to the explanations about the evening scenery of Moscow, we also learned a lot about the views of young Russians from our open tour guide.
Nice boat, super friendly staff. Good Russian ambiance. Food and drinks are not top notch but fine enough and amply served.
A great celebration. Food, drinks and mood optimal. Only the hotel pickup information needs to be improved.
