Day trip to Vladimir and Suzdal with the local guides Shakhnoza and Kate was enjoyable. It was quite different from cities like Moscow and Saint Petersburg.

We want an English tour, our guide only speaks Russian and German! Our driver translate but she is not professional. They don’t follow the itinerary! In Suzdal, the most important is to visit the Suzdal Kremlin but they didn’t take us! In Vladimir the most important church was closed.
It is an expensive tour but the worst I ever been! So disappointed!
