Customer Reviews about Russia Banya Experience
  • Experience was the best. Oleg, our guide, went out of his way to make this an event to remember. His tour started with tons of information from our departure and continued all thru the day until we arrived back at our hotel. Do I recommend? DEFINITELY!!
  • Oleg was excellent! He was very knowledgeable and his English was perfect. I would highly recommend asking for Oleg as your guide. Banya was great and can't wait to go back.
  • The Sanduny Baths have been around since 1808 and should not be missed if you have time for a leisurely afternoon/evening in Moscow. Taking the guide was essential for me as most of the attendants in the baths do not speak any language but Russian, so an English speaking guide who explained everything was essential for me.
