Real Client's Review: Traveling with Firebird during Global Pandemic
The past month has put a strain on travel companies across the globe, and Firebird is one of them. However, even though it's difficult to predict how long the travels will be restricted, we believe that this crisis is an opportunity to show what we are capable of and how seriously we are committed to organizing a better travel experience despite the circumstances. Therefore, we would like to share feedback from our recent traveler Regina, who has just returned home from her trip to Finland.
Real Client's Review: "You won't want to leave St. Petersburg"
The company had the most flexible tour package of all we looked at. We liked their general 7-day Venice of the North itinerary and after discussion and reassurance that they were flexible, added more to it to make sure our sightseeing wants were met. I thought I saw errors but they knew the non-published times and availability of St. Petersburg museums and benefits of having a licensed guide, so together we got museum tickets, with and without a guide, as well as show and ballet tickets (we are not fond of queues).
