Personally I liked the tour offerings because it is an interesting mix of the best Kamchatka has to offer: very scenic coastline, volcanoes, forests hot springs and...bears! We were lucky enough to see some...of course from a safe distance! I spent a week that could't have been better: after a good and relaxed sleep in a convenient room and a hearty rich breakfast we were taken to the mountains to the see or to the river. No chance for sleeping in the car: the rides were quite bumpy and adventurous and I'd give the drivers an award for their skills! View all reviews > Rouven Winson, Germany
My wife and I were interested in visiting Kamchatka, but were unsure how to make the most of our planned time on the peninsula.  We found 56th Parallel through a web search and identified several appealing tours, but unfortunately did not have enough available time to book one of the 8-day tours.  After contacting 56th Parallel, Anna and the team provided us with an excellent itinerary that captured the best of Kamchatka within our limited time frame.

We have just broken away from our moorings alongside port here at St. Petersburg after an extraordinarily successful 2-day visit which more than exceeded expectations. I have to admit that I am glad that you talked me into doing things I had not done before, and initially objected to, particularly the Metro which we all felt was a special experience.

Anna and the 56 Parallel team put together an amazing itinerary encompassing three distinct and very different venues within the Russian Federation; Moscow, Kamchatka, and Saint Petersburg. While the trip required many scheduling variations, every date and time was executed flawlessly by the several drivers and guides assigned to caring for Mark and I during our 10-day journey. Nicolai gave us a condensed (we only had several hours) but comprehensive tour and history of Moscow. View all reviews > John Mills and Mark Wozny, USA
