hej, hej Ulla!

We have returned from our Sweden adventure. The volcano in Iceland proved to not be much of a problem after all. We had some minor glitches, but all in all the trip was wonderful. We didn't quite make it all the way through the Gota Canal, as the final railroad bridge before Mem refused to raise. The company ordered busses to take us the last leg to Stockholm the next morning.

I can report that the crew of Capt Ake Fogghammer, First Officer Pierre, and Steward Peter were great. Our guest compliment included many Norwegians, some Australians, and us 4 Swedish Americans. The Captain had dinner with us at our table the final evening. I want to thank you on behalf of myself and my family for helping make this trip possible.

Tack, tack!

Hi Berniece:

Just wanted to advise you of the Grand Trip
for the Sorensen's & Byrnes parties.

They called me today with nothing but raves,
they also were able to get into the Diamond
Room which they enjoyed,

The Tour Guides were terrific and they really
thought the one in St. Petersburg was OUTSTANDING,

Thank you for all your help,

Hooman Beheshti

Thank you so much for helping me with the Beheshti trip. I just spoke with him and he was raving about what a wonderful time he had and how everything fit together so well. All the hotels were good and well located and the Norway in a Nutshell was the highlight, especially with going to Bergen as you suggested. You will definitely hear from this agency again.

Hi Ulla,

I want to give you some feedback about the vacation to Scandinavia and St. Petersburg that you put together for me and my husband.

The trip was wonderful! The hotels in Stockholm, Helsinki, and St. Petersburg had excellent locations within walking distance of major sights. We especially enjoyed the Esplanade in Stockholm. We found that the restaurant at the Petro Palace in St. Petersburg had a wonderful atmosphere, delicious food, and reasonable prices. We enjoyed the overnight boat trip from Stockholm to Helsinki and the relaxing train ride from Helsinki to St. Petersburg.

Our guide and driver in St. Petersburg were outstanding. Elena, our guide, was extremely knowledgeable. Thank you Lenart Tours! We never could have learned as much about the history, culture, and architecture of the city without Elena.

You were right about Helsinki. We did not need to spend more than two nights there. We took a city tour and saw pretty much all of the important sights in a couple of hours. Thanks for booking the Scandic Simonkentta for us. It was so easy walking to the train station in the morning.

We enjoyed seeing Tallinn. The only negative thing that I have to say was that we visited Tallinn on a Saturday and it was very crowded on the ferry. It was difficult to find a seat for the ride across the Baltic. There were too many young men drinking quite a lot. I suppose it would have been better to be on that ferry on a day during the week, but our trip dates did not allow for that.

Thank you again for planning and booking this vacation for us. We won't hesitate to recommend ScanTours to anyone we know who may be traveling to Scandinavia and/or Russia in the future.

Dear Ulla:  I am writing to thank you once again for all of you help in making our trip to St. Petersbug so successful.  Our guide was superb and so was the driver.  It turned out that the guide you thought we going to have could not do it and Albina Clipikove came out of retirement to take her place.  She was just perfect for us.  Our hotel, the Belvedere Nevsky, was just as you described - a no frills business hotel.  There is no lobby and the rooms were small, but the breakfast was good, the people in the hotel were helpful and kind to us, and it was incredibly well located.  We could walk everywhere.  It turned out that we met some friends at the Hotel Dostoevsky one evening so we got a chance to see it. It was fancier but not as well located as ours.  Our day trips were good and our free day on our own worked out very well.  So thank you from the Gridleys.  I certainly shall recommend you if I get the chance.  Sincerely, Barbara Gridley

Hi Ulla,

I wanted to quickly thank you for arranging the tour for me. I am having an absolutely spectacular time! Everything has been first-rate and beyond my expectations.

Dear Scantours:

My husband & I have taken nine group tours. Your Scandinavia Panorama & Stockhom Tour, July 14-26, 2009 was our tenth tour and one of our best because of our excellent guide, Carol Lindbom.

Carol kept our tour running smoothly. She made the long bus trips seem shorter by sharing her knowledge of Scandinavian history and culture with our group and playing music including everything from Grieg to ABBA. When there was free time in the cities she suggested interesting options and was always available to give us directions. She was charming, helpful and one of the best guides we have ever been with.

We were also pleased with the locations of the hotels, which if not in the center of town, were only a 20 minute walk to the center. We will recommend your tours to our friends.

My wife and I just returned from our trip to Finland and St. Petersburg. We had a great time and the guided tour was excellent. We were picked up on time and taken to all the sites and got to see pretty much everything we wanted to see. The weather was excellent, good restuarants and our tour guide was Tatitiana and she had over 17 years of experience so she was a wealth of information. The hotel was a great suggestion and worked out fine. We walked around the City each afternoon and saw more sights and gardens. The Hermitage was thee best along with Peterhoff , especially the fountain gardens. Catherine's palace was under construction and quite crowded. Stil good but other folks who we talked to said they preferred the other smaller palace (Paul's palace) since it had not been destroyed and rebuilt and had origial pieces as well. Many thanks for your suggestions.
