We are back from Russia, where we had a great time. I would first like to thank you for all your help. the trip was AMAZING and we all had a wonderful time. St. Petersburg is a beautiful city — Peter the Great can be proud! And the Hermitage is an amazing place. (But you need a month and strong legs to see everything!)

We liked the Alexander Hotel very much: small, very cozy, with a very attentive staff. Excellent for our needs. We had 2 rooms right near each other facing the street.The staff was most courteous and the breakfasts were wonderful. They lent us a computer for the entire time and it was very helpful for us to stay in contact with the states. The hotel was a 10 minute walk from the synagogue and the restaurant. In all it was a wonderful place for us to stay.

Moscow is not “pretty” but it is very, very interesting, and a major world capital. Both cities deserve to be visited — and I’m delighted that we did not destroy them during the Cold War! The Novotel on Novoslobodskaya was a good choice. We took the overnight train to Moscow — it was a very good experience that I would recommend to tourists who wish to travel between those two cities. Much more fun than another airplane ride. I would do it again. Also: I took George’s advice and ate “a peach from the market” (those were his words to me) and I must report that it was excellent/delicious! So thanks for the advice, and for your excellent service. Best regards

In Moscow the Novotel was OK but not spectacular (editor note: hotel is in walking distance to the synagogue). They did not offer good service. When I wanted to change money they gave me a hard time. The teller did not speak english and was most nasty. I had to go somewhere else to change money. the breakfast was very nice but they gave me a hard time about bringing food up for my daughter who would not eat in the dining room. all I wanted was vegetables and fruit. All in all it was wonderful.

It was a pleasure working with you and I will recommend you to anyone I know who is planning to visit Russia.
