Except for the long drive, the tour was really great and informative.

September 1, 2021

In themselves, the places to visit are worth 4 stars. Unfortunately, the journey took a long time. We had to change the bus 5 times, whereby the bus was broken once. Food was mediocre. Had 2 guides, one of which spoke English and one in Russian, communication was sometimes difficult. German was not offered.
