My 86 yr old mom and I just decided to take a land trip to Russia instead of a river cruise.. We would like to start in Moscow go to Kitzi among other places and end in St Petersburg. We need help. I think that a private tour would be great. I was at thinking of just taking day tours in Moscow and then leaving there. Should I drive myself? Is it difficult to find places? I speak no Russian at all. Is it possible to hire a driver to take us? Any ideas of what we should see? We have travelled in many other countries and I usually drive us but I usually have some familiarity with the language. I am not sure that it is a good idea. I would welcome any help because I need time to apply for a visa. Thanks for all help.
