Blini Reizen is a Dutch touroperator who offers trips to the former Soviet-Union. We always advise our clients to book excursions with a local guide: to view the country and it's people with different eyes and to get information they otherwise wouldn't get to know (easy). Two of our travellers (2 sisters, who had a special reason to visit Moscow), found Olga’s tours at this website and decided to book 4 of them through our agency. They were happy with both the tours and the guide, I quote: "the first two days we had Olga as a guide. Punctually she picked us up at our hotel. A funny, friendly and flexible girl with humor, who speaks English very well and knows a lot to tell about history, art and tourist locations. She also told us a number of anecdotes. She showed us very nice places and restaurants that we would never have found without her ". Af for Blini Reizen: we found Olga very pleasant to work with: she is accurate, flexible, cooperative, interested and always tried to find the best solutions for the clients. We would surely recommend this tour! See also the review left on "Moscow metro and 7 sisters, Stalin's skyscrapers" by PV.
