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. Sincerely
