Good morning Helen,

Thank you so much for organising our trip to Russia. This is the second time you've done a wonderful job! No hitches; great guides...Igor in Moscow and Mickail in Volgograd were both excellent, gave insightful information and went at our pace! Lil, who has never travelled internationally before, had the most wonderful time. It was all and more she expected!I happily tell everyone I know that you are the 'go to' person if wanting to travel in Russia.

This is really Lil's trip and I am just tagging along, getting her to Edinburgh where we are at the moment. However, I never thought I would visit Russia again and have enjoyed it immensely.
Who knows I might be able to visit another time??

Thanks once again,
Chris
