Not so good, guide spoke mostly in Russian, only 1hr boat ride.only 15min for swimming. Food was very poor ,low quality.guide was not to helpful. Almost didn't get of our stop. Because the guide assumed we knew. Didn't go inside one part of st Nicolas church, again , because of our guide.. could have been better.

We booked this tour and it was promised us in english. In the end 95 % of the tour was explained in russian so we didnt get much of this tour. Views were pretty but everything is just rocks if you dont get the history of it. Our guide Olga was sweet and pleasant and i understand that its not easy to do multilanguage tours, but for us this was not worth of the price and i cant recommend this to people who dont understand russian.
