      I had been looking forward to this trip from the moment I booked it. When we were picked up from our hotel, we soon realised that we were the only British couple on the coach, it was full of Russians, the commentary was in Russian and we had to endure this for hours on end, not understanding a word that the guide said.A retired English speaking guide was supplied but we had minimal input. Guide books were also supplied which gave us some information but I would have preferred the real thing. Not only that the day was a very long one (14 hours) from start to finish. The sights were spectacular and we enjoyed that, but apart from that a very disappointing day out!
