Dear Brenda

We just wanted you to know how successful out trip had been. Everything worked exceedingly well - all transfers and trains. Hotels were good.

All the places we visited were fascinating in different ways and we would recommend them to anybody wanting stops on that railway line. The train was comfortable and we all slept exceedingly well being gently rocked. I would be happy to be sitting now with millions of birch trees gliding by!

Everywhere we went people were very helpful. I am glad we had learned a little Russian. Actually it felt a bit of a come down to be in St Petersburg, awash with Western tourists and all hotel staff speaking impeccable English! We had very much enjoyed being places with few if any tourists.

Thank you so much with all your work on our trip. We would certainly use you again though not just in the immediate future!
