Tour Review

24 Jul 2011 - 04 Aug 2011

Really enjoyed the trip, amazing tour manager, Amazing countries, amazing crew :)
Belarus is a massive surprise and a place worth spending more time at. Going out is so easy there too, and busy even on a monday night.
A few of the optional excursions were not so good, but kinda best to go as it is easier than trying to find the group. The metro tour, you dont hear a thing, just see stuff, the artilerry museum in Moscow was quite dull too, and 30 euros to listen to someone play chopin for 45mins really isnt worth it (i did avoid this one)
Ballet is a recommendation!!
Losts of free and cheap alcohol, so be aware....
