Hello Konstantin,

We got home late yesterday evening and I am just writing to thank you for arranging such a wonderful trip for us.   Your organisation and efficiency are amazing - all the drivers and guides turned up exactly on time and everything worked like clockwork!

We were particularly impressed with the quality of the guides who were all extremely knowledgeable and of course Dimitri speaking English so well  made a big difference to the Golden Ring part of the tour.   You were right about the hotel in Suzdal by the way - it is a very special place - and Dimitri persuaded us to try a Russian banya whilst we were there.  The  sleeper to Novgorod was truly memorable and we're really pleased we decided to pay the extra for the de-luxe cabin - it was well worth it.

Sorry about the mix-up on arrival in St. Petersburg - but it was so reassuring to know that you were at the other end of the telephone line and able to sort things out so smoothly.

So thank you again - it was a pleasure to deal with you and if we come to Russia again in the future we shall not hesitate to book with you again.   I shall also recommend you to all my friends!

Best regards,

Rosemary (Wolverton, UK)

Just wanted to thank you for your service. It was superb, and sweet Olga was a fantastic guide yesterday. We thoroughly enjoyed our day trip. I will mention you and Olga on TripAdvisor when we return home. Thanks again,


We are now back at our home in Wales after travelling on from St Petersburg to Turkey for some (more) sunshine.
i would like to say thank you for a very enjoyable experience in Russia.  Everything went very smoothly from the moment we were met at the Airport.
Natalia was splendid - she gave us a very well informed 3 days of cultural experience whilst being very companiable - we felt we were sharing St Petersburg with a friend!  Please pass on our appreciation to her
Thank you again for arranging the experience - i will certainly be recommending your services to friends and colleagues
Very Best Wishes


We were in Russia in June 2018. Main itinerary was to visit St Petersburg and Moscow. Enroute we did a slight detour to Kizhi Island - an open-air museum and UNESCO World Heritage site. To experience a different facet of Russia, we signed with Nordic Travel Discover Karelia 3D/2N tour. This tour brought us to the nature reserves, quaint villages and churches of Karelia.

It was a pleasure dealing with Nordic Travel who were prompt and reliable. The transport was comfortable, driver safe and polite (a bonus!) and guide Olessya was warm, cheerful and accommodating.

We were glad we saw and enjoyed thoroughly a Russia beyond the 2 main cities. Big Thanks to Nordic Travel!

Thank you so much, Konstantin, for arranging our trip to Кижи - especially at such short notice. We had a wonderful time. It is the highlight of our trip. Alex was a great tour guide. He knows such a lot and his English is amazing. We learnt a lot from him.
We have had a great time in Petrozavodsk - thanks to you!!

The guides spoke good English and we could understand what they were saying. They also showed us what we could do during our free time around the town.
I would like to add that Marina and Dmitry were very helpful and hospitable during our Golden Ring and Moscow tour.

Bespoke Russia tour: Golden Ring and Moscow

...YAMAL is a smashing ship--powerful, comfortable, and sea worthy. The Captain and his crew,
too, were very determined, careful, and considerate.  We hit a wall of ice unbelievably thick
and attacked it 6 times to cut a path to the North Pole.  I loved this action plus the sound
of the ship's bow breaking the sea ice to open a path for progress.  When we stopped to
observe the polar bears, there was utter silence--a time when you know how awesome the
earth is at that latitude.  I felt like I was at the top of the world!  I especially enjoyed
the tour of the operation of the nuclear powered engine, room;  meeting the Captain on a
small group basis and having champagne or wine (the ship's photographer Gordon, from the
States,  will send me a photo of this occasion as well as us dancing in a circle at the North
Pole).  I SPOTTED 10 POLAR BEARS; one of which came right to the ship's bow so I think I
have a fairly good photo of him even though I am not a photographer.

I just wanted to follow up with you guys regarding the Tour in Novgorod and Vyborg this winter.  Me and my girlfriend loved Alexander and thought the tours were great.  We had a great time at both locations and thought that they were put together in a great way.  We would recommend Nordic and Alexander to anyone traveling in that part of the world.

Dear Sir,
I want to thank you for the excellent planning of our trip. There was not the slightest mistake.
My son and I got marvellous impressions of russia, with would not be possible without the help
of your bureau and Tatjana.
I will recommend your office.
Yours sincerely,

Regarding the sites, the highlights for us were the visit to Kinerma (we have been involved in raising money to restore a traditional barn in our own small village (only 12 houses) so we could empathise with their efforts and problems), and of course the Solovetsky Islands.

Thanks for a great experience. The tour of Karelia was everything we expected and more.The tour went like clockwork. Our guide Alyssa was knowledgeable, patient and quick to lend a helping hand when needed. The drivers were professional and the vans we traveled in were clean and comfortable. We have no complaints about our hotel rooms. What an experience to visit an area of Russia few Americans have ever seen! We wouldn't hesitate to book another Nordic Travel tour.

Judy (Albuquerque, the USA)

We had a wonderful time. Unforgettable. I want to thank you and the people with whom you work, who made it so special. Jan, Mikhail... And of course the Nenets who shared their lives with us.
I will never forget this experience as long as I live!
P.s. I will tell anyone interested to contact you for the tour!
