We were part of the group which Angela and Robert Morris organized with you in September 2011. I just wanted you to know that “Alexandra” who looked after us on our first day in Moscow was an excellent tour guide and showed us lots of things on our way from the airport into the city centre and also in the city. We had a wonderful start to our Russia holiday with Alexandra.
CheersGraeme and Lorraine Rome
