During the whole trip, our tour leader, Sabestian always shows a very friendly approach and with a smiley face to the group of 30 persons.He has been observant - taking care of the older folks by helping them to get down from the coach (steps are quite high). He makes himself easily available, flexible and is spontaneous to our needs and queries.I should also say that he is a very enthusiastic leader making sure that every morning without fail, is with a smiling face, and readily waiting for us at the hotel lobby to start the day. The whole group was fantastic too, always puantual.One of the nights, he even offered to bring us to the supermarket or the famous shopping centre "Gum" in Moscow. Upon reaching, he will reiterate the way back to the hotel - a very responsible leader. I would like to take this opportunity to thank EU Holidays for organising this good, relaxing trip and also, having Sabestian as our tour leader.Looking forward to the next trip with EU Holidays and Sabestian as our tour leader again.
Had a very reassuring trip to Russia under the care of Sabestian. He is very meticulous and thorough with his details and execution. Even before the trip begin, Sabestian reached out to share many notes for the trip preparation such as meeting time, weather conditions, traveling wifi etc. We had to transit at Dubai airport and Sabestian made sure we knew beforehand the various scenarios we might be facing upon arrival so as not to be caught by surprise. Every day before we return to our rooms, Sabestian made sure to inform us of the next day schedule and timings. He is always the last man behind to ensure no one gets lost and always punctual as well. He also has a great sense of humor and very responsive: showing us the routes to shopping center near our hotel upon our requests or initiative to distribute the menu available on the speed train for our convenience. Strongly recommend him to be anyone’s next tour option �
