Myself and 3 colleagues made the trip to the Monino Air Museum this week with Oleg Alexandrov and Three Whales Travel. This was my second trip to Monino with Oleg in the past 2 years! Oleg is punctual, friendly, accomodating, a safe driver, and a fluent English speaker! His transportation is reliable, clean, and safe. He does a great job translating the Info presented by the Russian Museum Volunteers to the group. Monino Air Museum is a must see if you are visiting Moscow and Oleg is the tour guide to use! I look forward to my next trip to Monino with Oleg and Three Whales Travel!! Thank you!!!

Did a military history tour in Moscow, Stalingrad and Kursk with 14 others July 3-13 2013 with Oleg as our guide. He was energetic, thoughtful, considerate and very well-organized. The trip was carefully planned and (with the exception of the Cosmos Hotel) the places for food and lodging were very nice. His patience in handling a diverse and inquisitive group was stellar. His expertise and enthusiasm was superb, across battlefields, memorials, museums and cathedrals. One of the highlights of the trip was a visit to the Kubinka tank museum which (if you visit their website) is a bureaucratic challenge for foreigners. Oleg is open and gregarious and his English is impeccable. He showed remarkable interpreting skills when we visited some Soviet veterans. This is the go-to guy for your trip to Russia!

I went with Oleg and Three Whales with my son to Kubinka tank museum. Oleg arranged so we could go with another group to keep the cost down(btw: a group of very friendly americans). A great trip with a knowledgeable guide that was fluent in english - which is not to be taken for granted in Russia.

Thank you, Oleg and Three Whales.

A horrendous traffic jam due to roadworks made a 3.5 hour trip to Vladimir and Suzdal a 6 hour experience I wouldn't want to repeat. However, the meal at the farm and the company was a treat and Suzdal is worth a visit. Oleg kept his cool throughout and was informative and accommodating. The trip back was a breeze.
