Moscow Russia Trip Report

We used All Travel Russia for 2 days in Moscow and 5 in St. Petersburg. Will give St. Petersburg report when we finish this tour on St. Petersburg forum.

Would like to let people know that Moscow was a clean, fun, and friendly city. We heard all the don't go for years before we went. So glad we did. The police were friendly too. We got lost and they were most helpful with directions. We didn't see any pickpockets, gangs, graffiti, filth, or anybody trying to rip us off.

We toured Red Square and the Kremlin. Walked all over Red Square until 1 am in the morning with no problem on our own. We are both seniors. We felt safe and had a great time. It was raining earlier in the evening and the wet cobblestone on the square was so beautiful.

To much propaganda out there and misinformation. We used a tour company because of the endless stories we heard before we went. We could have easily done it on our own.

So far All Travel Russia has done a great job with our tour. They took care of the visa process and transportation inside Russia. High-speed train from Moscow to St. Petersburg was very nice. Free WIFI and very comfy seats.

Russia is a beautiful country with lots of history.

I think he is referring to the camouflage outfits the brown beers have gotten a hold of to blend in!

Ebertsj, hi

Russian bears have nothing to hide - they are what they are and noting more..... nothing less either! They are 100% true and honest animals, i`m sure...
