A very kind and knowledgeable guide! He has a great history and was able to study Russian history while visiting Vladivostok. I enjoyed the atmosphere of the city because I was able to get on a lot of transportation that was difficult to ride in Russia for the first time!
Highly recommended to learn more about the life and customs of this city so distant from Spain and with comments from Edu, our guide, who will guide you to explore later on your own.
My experience with Jane, my guide, has been really nice. I am very grateful of her for her kindness and her her interest on helping me.
