Destination of Choice: Moscow, St Petersburg, Novgorod
It has been an enjoyable trip, except for some minor hiccups. Russia is really pretty and I am really amazed at how knowledgeable the guides were. They provided such a deep insight on not only the history of the sites, but the whole country history and how each places were built and destroyed.
Other than the minor issues we encountered, it was a perfect trip.
Thanks for planning the trip. Really enjoyed it a lot, especially the nice hotels (except for one of the receptionist!).
