Congratulations to The Cultural Experience for their wonderful tour of Gallipoli.
The arrangements were thoughtful and complete with latitude for particular interests and circumstances. Particular thanks to our guide; Dr Bruce Cherry who
often led us off the beaten track and into the bushes to places apparently unaltered by time and whose depth of knowledge, enthusiasm, patience and inclusive good humour brought the group to camaraderie and an understanding.

The Eastern Front: Russia 1941-43 tour

I booked the tour after a friend recommended The Cultural Experience. The war on the Eastern Front has always been of interest to me and the programme provided the perfect opportunity to discover more about the campaigns and battles that finally resulted in the defeat of the Nazis.

I booked the tour after a friend recommended The Cultural Experience. The war on the Eastern Front has always been of interest to me and the programme provided the perfect opportunity to discover more about the campaigns and battles that finally resulted in the defeat of the Nazis.

Every part of the visit met and usually exceeded my expectations. From the time the party met at Heathrow to our final dispersal, everything ran smoothly. The office team provided very clear joining instructions in advance of our departure which enabled me to make the right choices when packing for a 10 day overseas vacation. Col Bob Kershaw supported by Sergey Morozov, the local guide were perfect hosts being knowledgable, approachable, excellent communicators and organisers.

The comprehensive itinerary enabled me to gain a full and clear understanding of the battles fought outside Moscow, inside the city of Stalingrad and the ?toe to toe? slugging match within the Kursk salient.

One highlight of many was being able to watch the Victory Day parade in Volgograd from my first floor bedroom which overlooked the main square. One could feel the patriotism of the crowd and what The Great Patriotic War meant to many individuals and families. The very noisy gun salute was surprising and impressively loud.

He tour included two internal flights, - excellent arrangements at the airports, and a return train trip from Moscow to Kursk. The evening journey was reasonably comfortable but the return to Moscow left at midnight and included accommodation in a very modern sleeper compartment.

All the hotels were very good with Wi-Fi connections available. Food in Kursk and Volgograd was based on local cuisine while those in Moscow offered international dishes. The generous wine ration that accompanied dinner ensured many diners enjoyed a good nights sleep.

Another bonus was the interaction and friendliness of the party members. Everyone was friendly and evening conversations were always engaging.

This was a superb experience that was superbly organised and lead by an expert guide who could describe the battles as seen by the generals and the experiences of the foot soldiers which as in all wars were harrowing to say the least.

I fully recommend this tour to anyone who wants to discover more about the war in Russia.

The tour was excellent and Bob and Sergei added a huge amount to the experience. The only reason we did not award 5 stars was the hotel in Kursk.

Special thanks to Bob and Sregel. Well prepared trip with good way of orders. I sincerely thanks to Spargel for the logistics and also excellent guidance of Bob. My best three memories were 1) Boroddino? Not sure the spelling, 2) the different duration between German and Russian how each other concludes the battle, and 3) Bob?s hearings to former Panzer and Tank crews of Russians. I still feel that the tour is expensive, but it does pays as long as one does have an interest overall, but not own foot with dense research in advance.
