This wasn't high on my bucket list but the price/timing was right. This was a 14 day river cruise from St Petersburg to Moscow via the Neva and Volga Rivers. We spent 3 days in St Petersburg on the front of the cruise and 3 days in Moscow on the end of the cruise and visited a number of smaller vllages and towns in between. Crew was excellent as was the food and the guides were fluent and extremely knowledgeable. Happen to spend my birthday in the small town of Uglich and had an opportunity to visit a local household where we ate cake, drank tea and had 3 shots of home made vodka before 9:00am. Would definitely recommend this cruise to any one - St Petersburg is fascinating as is Moscow (Red Square at midnight is especially memorable). We were very lucky to do this during the "Golden Autumn", an event that doesn't happen that frequently - the leaves were all in color during the entire cruise. So much to see, so much history and culture to absorb.
