I still think this was one of the best trips I've been on!

I must say overall it was an amazing experience to visit Kamchatka! It will be something I will remember quite vividly. The staff from on the ground were so helpful and genuine! The trip was very well organised. From what we saw of Eastern Russia was what I was hoping to see, its people to its landscape, it was a privilage to witness it all. The hotels and all the accommodation was what I expected, it made the experience real. The food was better than I was expecting! Plenty of it, never went hungry.

I found the Russian people quite proud and of strong character. I do love their culture especialy the Indigenous tribes. Safety was never an issue. The whole trip was a highlight but to single out one was the Bears and deer herders together.

It is quite an experience.

All in all, we are happy that we chose to go for this tour. It is quite an experience! We also want to give praise to the local staff, feeling they were very competent, experienced and wise during the trip. Regarding everyday organization they did a very good job. We also feel very good and thankful for your part in organizing and preparing us for the trip! Thank you!

We do, though, have some reservations about the way the program was organized. For example, the program for Kuril lake is for three nights. Actually, there is only one day in which there is a fabulous walk along the river to see the bears. The rest of the time is more or less sitting in the cabin, or at the same specific watchpoint. Which becomes tiring after a while. So we felt it might be wiser to either plan options for making better use of the time, which otherwise stretches too much, or organize transfers more economically (for example returning from Kuril in the afternoon of the third day instead of taking a whole (fourth) day just to do that). We think there could be an improvement in those issues for future travellers.

The trip was perfect and I would highly recommend it to others!

Your team was great!  It was smoothly planned and we really enjoyed our time in Kamchatka! The guide Alyona was outstanding! The highlights of the trip: bears on Kuril Lake and reindeer herders! We felt safe for the whole duration of the tour and I would highly recommend this tour and 56th Parallel to others!

We were very pleased with every aspect of the tour!

A guide, young lady in Murmansk was very good, professional and friendly! Karelia was excellent, the crew a guide and a driver were very good very helpful and carrying. All hotels on tour were fine and we enjoyed our time wandering around the streets in the evening, where we could find good cafes.

We enjoyed the trip very much and part of our heart is in Kamchatka now.

Everything was very interesting and exciting! Of course, the volcanoes and nature were the highlights, not forgetting the hot waters. A big disappointment was that we did not see any bears, not a single one ;-) Our guide Artyom was excellent professional, so much knowledge, always good humour, seemingly never tired... I am ready to recommend Kamchatka to others!
