1 testimonial about this trip

  1. Reviewer: C. Fisher located in Youngstown, OH USA
    With regards to the Georgian people, I have never been more welcomed any where I have traveled, and I have traveled extensively.  People went out of their way to meet me, and thank me for coming.
    The food in Georgia was fantastic.  Meals were freshly prepared with locally grown vegetables and spices.  The portions served were generous. Georgians believe that it would be a dishonor for a guest to leave the table hungry.  I suppose the word "guest" best describes the way I felt in Georgia, I was more a guest to their country than a tourist.
    My MIR guide is one of the best guides I have ever had anywhere in the world.  Like most guides, her English is flawless, her knowledge of her country and its history is complete.  What puts her above all the rest, was her willingness to spend her free time showing me the little visited hidden treasures that her country is blessed with.  I greatly appreciated her extra time and attention.
    Thank you for the great trip, I am sure that I will travel with MIR again in the future.

    Every day I am grateful for this fabulous trip. The destinations you specialize in are of much more interest now that I know what a well-delivered service you provide.

    MIR's tour manager made my trip more deeply meaningful and made sure that everyone on the train came away with a greater appreciation for this vast country. Thank you so much for your great itinerary, for the tremendous abilities of your staff... You can be certain I will recommend your company.

  • Reviewer: The Tobys located in Rockville Center, NY USA
    …It is safe to say without the expertise of your superb cadre of guides in the country we never could have put it all together. In fact, we were totally dependent on them to benefit from the extraordinary experienced of visiting three regions of [Ukraine] within a two-week time period.

    Clearly, MIR Corporation has a well-deserved reputation for superb customer service. We support that well-deserved reputation, which is possibly rooted in the fact that your associates like their jobs and that job satisfaction has been transferred to customer and client relations….

    Honestly, we were duly impressed with each of the regional guides and the drivers who accompanied us. Their local knowledge of the unique features of their respective region was so evident, impressive, and unmatched by any we have encounters over our 40 years of visiting 140 countries.

    I want to thank you for a most stupendous trip; 5 stars plus. Loved Ukraine, the people, the sites, the precision of our tour; the fine quality of the guides and drivers - how much they care, how much they know and how much they kept our interests foremost in their hearts and their minds. It was just stupendous.

    It was so fabulous we cannot stop talking about it. Again, thank you very much. And I will certainly recommend MIR Corporation when it is appropriate for our friends & colleagues.

    It was excellent beyond all expectations.

    We don’t know where to start – a perfect itinerary which satisfied all of our needs, excellent accommodations superbly located, flawless execution of all aspects including visas, vouchers, theatre tickets, etc., and last but certainly not least, truly outstanding and professional guides and drivers.

    …We only wish that MIR provided tours everywhere, in which case we would never use another tour company again..

    MIR Office in Seattle was outstanding…We have already told several friends about MIR and how wonderful they are! You all put together a trip for us that was perfect to our budget, time frame and interests. Russia is a fabulous destination – wonderful history, magnificent sites we can’t say enough about MIR and Russia.
