An excellent well rounded tour. Seeing Moscow and St. Petersburg should be on everyone's list to see. But the home stay portion of this trip is really what made the experience a genuine and delicious part experience. Back warm to see Father Frost and enjoy every part of the beautiful winter and Russian landscape.

This brilliant trip challenged and confounded my expectations of Russia and included one of the best New Year's celebrations I have ever spent.
