We have booked 1-day tour with Three Whales for Vladimir-Suzdal with few comments from previous travelers. And we have no regret at all. It was really a wonderful trip. A great English-speaking guide have provided us with many interesting information about these two cities of Golden ring. Trip arrangement was well done. We enjoyed a lot this visit. Thanks Oleg & the team.

I took my wife to Moscow to the Bolshoi and asked Three Whales to organise a day trip to the Borodino battlefield a long way outside Moscow.

What a fantastic, comfortable and well organised day trip. A great English speaking driver telling us all sorts all the way there, a fab Russian guide for the battlefield, a splendid really Russian meal to split the day. Very good value too given how stupidly expensive Moscow is.

Life made so easy in a country where I can't even read the road signs.

I had a most enjoyable half day tour of Moscow today. The guide and owner of the company, Oleg, is a pleasure to deal with, from the no hassle way of initially booking the tour, to the relaxed and knowledgeable style with which he showed me around. Before the tour I was bored in my hotel and had no engagement with Moscow whatsoever. After the tour I felt so much more able to relate to everything I see and hear around me in Moscow. It makes a real difference and made my entire business trip so much better.

When you start to Google for tours you quickly get overwhelmed with the enormous list of companies that comes up, and you don't know which is (a) reliable, (b) fairly priced, and (c) of decent quality. These things take on a bigger significance (for me anyway) when I'm in a place I don't know. Some other tour providers weren't answering the phone when I started calling around (admittedly this was at 8pm) but Oleg picked up right away, and on email too he is very responsive. He speaks perfect English, you won't have any problems asking questions or understanding the answers. Oleg has been doing this for 15 years, and he is both good at his job and takes pride in doing it well. He publishes his prices clearly on his website, which also helps me feel I'm not being taken advantage of - unlike for example my hotel, which offered to arrange a tour at almost twice what Three Wales charged.

By now it will come as no surprise that I highly recommend Three Wales. If you're bored in your hotel and have a few hours to spare, Oleg will change the way you see Moscow.
