Geoffrey and Karen, the nice, sociable couple from Australia, were only 2.5 days in Moscow and they were lucky not only with the pleasant weather at the beginning of April (sunny, +17..+19 C), but also with a lot of interesting sites of Moscow they were able to see from the plan (itinerary) I provided for them in advance. On April 7th, on the holiday of Annunciation of the Mother of God, they were very happy and excited to be able to get a special tour into the Grand Kremlin and Faceted Palaces of Moscow Kremlin (very limited entrance) and after this tour it was also unexpected surprise for them when they were able to see the ceremony of the releasing of doves by our Patriarch, Alexii II who ended at 12:00 the morning liturgy at the cathedral of Annunciation (former private church of our tsars) in Moscow Kremlin. Besides Moscow they also visited St. Petersburg, Helsinki and Hong Kong on the way back to their home. A couple of days ago they sent me a message that they had arrived home safe and sound and enjoyed very much their trip to Russia, as Moscow part (organized and provided by me) and St. Petersburg where they were guided by my colleague Julia Ivanushkina, who has also had only good responses from my former clients who hired her services. If you are planning to visit St. Petersburg as well as Moscow, I can highly recommend services of few excellent tour guides.
Our time in Moscow was extremely brief but with Arthur as our guide we learned an enormous amount about its history and culture. We found Arthur to be good company and very conscientious. It was only through Arthur's inside knowledge that we were able to tour the Kremlin Palace which was one of the many highlights of our visit to Moscow.
