" My partner and I were impressed with our "fast train" journey from St Petersburg to Moscow.
The reception at the station was professional and warm.
We were shown to our pre-booked seats and settled in - and had a most enjoyable smooth gliding journey to Moscow.
I am not Russian (my partner is) however the trip it was exciting to see the natural countryside and villages for the first time. The weather was good and it was almost romantic to see the changing view through the the approaching dusk and eventual darkness.
We arrived in Moscow on time and enriched by a memorable experience.
Thanks to all involved with the Russian Trains team who made this trip an important part of our visit to Russia. "
" Very good service, except for the lack of knowledge of english language and an individual female part of Sapsan crew who didn't want to check my information in order to board the train, because it was bought with my old passport- I hope she learned since August that even in those situations the bought ticket is valid and the information also, since that is her job.
Thank you. "
