    Namita Pande

    Delhi

    Namita's 10 days trip to Russia

    Few tips to take care while planning a trip to travel agent: 1. Check all the hotels as I got the first hotel changed and was better then the other two. 2. Check on the luggage as how much one is allowed to carry as should have been told by the travel agents if the flight inside the country will be domestic and luggage will be a problem. Had to pay 2700 rubbles extra. Then cabs booked for excursion we paid 300 rubbles for the parking which should be borne by the agents. The agents arranged the timely cabs for pick and drop. Rest all the other things has to be managed self.. I felt that arranging the trips are far better than doing through the agents.. Saint Petersburg was one of the best place to see in the entire Russia..

    Priyanka Tomar

    Delhi

    Priyanka's 7 days trip to Russia

    Overall it was a good trip. Due to language issue, we were not able to interact much with Cab drivers in Moscow. Also traffic in Moscow is really bad, which was one of the pain points for us. Stay in petersburg was a memorable one. The cab driver was a Pakistani so no language issue. Though the hotel was small, but hotel staff was very friendly and cooperative. Stay in Petersburg will always be in our good books (from cab driver to hotel staff and food).

    Gadi's 6 days trip to Russia

    The hotels selected in St. Petersburg needs to be changed.its in the centre of city, but has no elevator & rooms are on the 4 th floor.real inconvenience to tourists. The overall package value is a little high when compared to the places of visit proposed, couls have more additional fight seeing trips. indian food could have been organised / complimented atleast for one day in both the cities. Night cruise on Moscow river.

    Parimal's 5 days trip to Russia

    Complete value for money! I had done my bookings for my Russia trip with Tripo Holidays. There were multiple iterations that we discussed before finalising the itenary. The travel advisors at Tripo were patient enough to address and also rework the itenary. They were also always available during my trip and for any queries that I had, they responded immediately. Would surely look to book trips to more destinations through Tripo as well as through Travel Triangle registered travel advisors.
