I would highly recommend Peace Travel, Dmitry has been fantastic in all areas, he responded to our queries quickly and efficiently, giving first class advice, thank you once again Dmitry for all your help.
The Duma apartment we stayed in was warm, secure and in an excellent central location.

I have been using Peace Travel Service on and off since 2004. You can see my first post below on Oct 17, 2006. If you want the most reliable and dependable service in Moscow then you want Peace Travel Service, it is easy for me to boast about Peace Travel because every time I have used their services my expectations have been exceeded. And if their services are not the perfect solution for your travel situation they have provided me alterative ideas.
This month I needed reliable transport and assistance from a Moscow train station to the airport for my wifeís 15-year-old daughter. I requested assistance to be sure everything was good with the checkin for the flight to U.S.A. When Aeroflot requested the address for my wifeís daughterís final destination. Dmitry himself did not hesitate to call me in the U.S.A. to be sure the information was correct. I knew I could depend on Dmitry and his staff. This is why I use Peace Travel Service.
THANK YOU so much!

We took three successful trips to Moscow and used Peace Travel every time. Dmitry was very responsive, contientious and professional. I would recommend Peace Travel and Dmitry to any one.

This service was wonderful. Dmitry's English was perfect and was extremely helpful with everything I needed for my final trip to pick up my adopted daughter. From the travel crib to last minute car pick up. I felt like I had a friend in Moscow. I would totally recommend them to anyone needing services.

Peace travel offered an excellent service and solved all queries/problems quickly and efficiently.
The apartment was safe, warm, clean and confortable and fitted the description offered on the website. Thank you for making our stay more pleasant.

Peace Travel booked an apartment for us recently for an adoption.
Our plans changed at the last minute and Dmitry quickly refunded our money and booked us in a different apartment on the same street. The price was less than half of what the hotels were charging.
Everything was always handled very professionally and I appreciated Dmitry's responsiveness to any question I asked.
I highly recommend Peace Travel for apartments in Moscow.
October 13 , 2011 , 04:31
I have used Peace Travel for both my adoptiions in 2004 & 2011.
Their service was awesome in 2004 and has not changed in the years since. I would not hesistate to recommend their services.
I have used almost every service they offer. I have found everyone there very reliable. It was always very reassuring to know that someone from Peace Travel would be there for airport pickup or if there were a change of plans.
We used Peace Travel last year to rent apartments in Moscow and hire drivers for airport transfers and touring. Everything went exactly as expected, which was wonderful! The drivers helped us with everything from suggestions on how to use public transportation to grocery shopping.
This summer, Dmitry helped us again when my son traveled alone to Moscow, to be met by Russian speaking relatives at the airport. It was not a typical airport transfer since they didn't need a ride anywhere. But we were able to hire an English speaking driver to meet them all at the aiport and help with translation. It was also agreed that the driver would be available to wait with my son if for some reason the relatives were delayed in arrival. Though a service a little out of the ordinary, Dmitry was willing to help us with this situation.
Can't say enough about the excellent customer service and reliability we have experienced with Peace Travel!
April 26 , 2011 , 04:11
A very professional service, and everything went smoothly for us. Thanks!
February 15 , 2011 , 09:02
I would just like to point out one of your OUTSTANDING employees. Dmitry has been incredible. Up front and honest.
He deserves EMPLOYEE OF THE YEAR PLUS A LARGE RAISE. VERY PROFESSIONAL (HE IS A KEEPER)
November 22 , 2010 , 10:07
I highly recommend Peace Travel to help you with any services you need while visiting Moscow.
I called on them to help me with adoption needs, such as transportation from our adoption city to Moscow, apartment rental, making doctor's appointments, transportation in the city.
All related personnel were extremely friendly, from our taxi driver to the woman who met us at the apartment. Dmitry was especially helpful in answering all my questions or directing me in the right direction to get an answer.
He was ALWAYS extremely prompt in answering my inquiries. Dmitry and his team are the best. You are definitely in good/safe hands if you use Peace Travel.

I reserved a ride from Domodedovo Airport to Shermetyevo Airport on 3 September 2010 with Peace Travel Services and I was very pleased with their services. I have hired other companies in the past with bad results, such as no one being at the airport to meet me and then having to haggle for a long time with other taxi drivers for a fair price. What a pleasant surprise dealing with Peace Travel Services this time! My driver, Anatoly, met me at arrivals with my name on a sign as promised at the correct time and quickly took me to my awaiting comfortable sedan. My driver was pleasant, courteous and spoke excellent English, I enjoyed speaking with him during the long ride to Sheremetyevo Airport. He got me to my connecting flight on time and even went into the terminal before me to make sure of my connecting flights and gate numbers. Because of Peace Travel, I had a worry-free trip from one airport to the other and I made my connecting flight with time to spare. The next time I am in Moscow and I need transportation, I will call the only company that I can rely on, Peace Travel Services. THANK YOU SO MUCH !!!!

Peace Travel is a great company to deal with. We used them to rent two apartments during our stay in Moscow in May 2010 while we were in the process of adopting our son. There services are professional and when we had questions or issues; they (Dmitry) were quick to assist us and to make sure that our stay was comfortable.
We want to return to Moscow for another extended visit and when we do we will use Peace travel again.

I just want to say, that Dmitry was very accomodating and is a great example of great customer service. He went above and beyond what was expected and I found Peace Travel a very good company to do business within interior Russian flights.
I will use them again because they made it very easy for someone who lives in California to buy tickets from Saratov to Moscow, which is not easy for someone outside Russia.

Peace Travel is terrific. We've used them 5 times. (2nd two visits for our first adoption and all three for the 2nd). Dmitry is great. Very accomodating.
My most recent stay (Sunflower Residence, Novy Arbat str, 22 ) was terrific. If you see a place that says "Novy Arbat str, 22" grab it right away. Everything about it is terrific - location, comfort, spacious - and the person who greeted us and the woman who cleaned were both wonderful.
December 09 , 2009 , 06:23
We used Peace Travel for an adoption trip. We found them to be excellent prior to arriving and during your stay. They help you with every aspect of your stay and make you feel very welcome!
The Jasper Suite was excellent for our family traveling with children. The building is very centrally located to the main Moscow sights, within walking distance.
I would stay here again and would recommend Peace Travel to others traveling either for a vacation or for an adoption!

We used the services of Peace Travel for our final stay in Moscow due to the adoption of our beloved Misha.
The Embassy Studio was perfect! We felt like home because of all the ammenities like English TV and free calls to the US. There are little grocery stores just outside the building and the studio is within a walking distance of the center. Even our boy was delighted! I really recommnend Peace travel Services for everyone who is comming to Russia, but for the adoption families in particular.
Thanks Peace Travel Services!
October 14 , 2009 , 10:37
I used Peace Travel car services to transfer between Moscow airports this month. On a very tight schedule, and against all odds, the driver was able to make it so I could get on my international flight home. He was professional, calm and great company under what were pretty stressful circumstances. I would recommend Peace Travel very, very highly for excellent service.
July 08 , 2009 , 20:08
We stayed in your apartments in September and December 2008 for our adoption of our daughter and want to thank you for a nice place to stay away from home. The maps showing us where the shops were located and how to use the phone etc were wonderful. We loved the free international calls, local calls and wifi. We were able to save money and have a safe comfortable place to stay. Since we did stay in hotels for our adoption of our son and one of our three trips for the adoption of our daughter - we used up points. I can say - Staying with Peace Travel in your apartments was hands down the better way to go. It was much more relaxing, comfortable, convenient and affordable.
June 29 , 2009 , 22:44
We just finalized our adoption from Moscow Region and used Peace Travel Services to rent a cell phone for all three trips. It was so convenient for us as we have a 5 year old at home and it enabled us to stay in close contact with her while we were in Russia. There rates are very reasonable and the calling card service is great and inexpensive. Peace Travel has fantastic customer service and I would highly recommend using them again if we were traveling. What a fantastic service!

This was our second adoption in Moscow. We used Peace Travel Services for all three trips and it was great. It allowed us to stay in touch with our child in the US while we were in Moscow. It also made things easier getting around Moscow since we could get in touch with our local representatives and our travel agent. And the rates are very reasonable.
We wished we had used the service for our first adoption...

We just adopted our daughter from Moscow and we had read about Peace Travel prior to traveling to meet her. We are not a wealthy family so when we found out the cost of hotels we contacted Andrie. What a God send! Our trips happened so fast that the last one we didnt think we would be able to get an apartment because of the holidays, but Andrie came through for us only days before we left. Even if we were rich(which we arent) We would not rent a hotel ROOM when we could get an APARTMENT for less than half the cost per night. We also used his visa registration, it was great they picked up our papers and delivered the reciepts to our door. I will VERY highly recommend Peace Travel and Andrie to other adopting families and any friends who may travel to Russia. It is a beautiful country with beautiful people. We plan to go back when our dughter is old and we will use Peace Travel agian.
Thank-You Very Much

We just returned from Russia and again utilized the services of Peace Travel.
Our apartment in Moscow was wonderful - very centrally located, extremely clean and fresh and very secure. The drivers were very dependable, as usual, and when we return to Russia, we will definitely contact Peace Travel again.
Thank you Dmitry.
July 10 , 2007 , 21:54
We have just returned from our first trip to Europe and our Moscow stay was definitely the highlight.
Our dealings with Andrei and Dimitri were very positive. Everything was perfect. Our apartment was excellent- ideal location, very clean and well supplied. Our driver was waiting at the airport when we arrived, which ensured a smooth start to our holiday.
Visa registration was prompt and any queries we had were dealt with promptly and efficiently.
I am hoping that we will be able to visit Moscow again and I will most certainly book accommodation through PTS.
Thank you so much for your assistance - absloutely perfect.

My husband and I stayed at the Duma Apartment in Moscow March 25-30 and was very pleased. We were delighted with the spaciousness, location and helpfulness of your staff. We are especially pleased with how quickly you responded and your personal service (we had very little travel notice) - we knew everything would be in order upon our arrival and it was! We\'ve already recommended your company to others who are traveling for adoptions! We definitely plan on staying on our 2nd and 3rd trips -- hopefully real soon! Thanks again for all your help and I hope to talk with you soon to arrange trip 2! Teri Gentry

Always clean, plenty of towels, always a hair dryer...high speed internet, free calling to the US and YOUR top notch service have made our trips to Moscow very enjoyable.
I don't know why anyone would stay in a hotel.
Thanks again and we look forward to our next trip.

My fiance and me went to Moscow in September of this year and rented 2 apartments in the same building in Kamergersky lane. I found Peace Travel thru tripadvisor.com, the site that I really trust for travel recs. We really enjoyed staying in both places. Apartments are really clean, cozy, secure and have all necessary appliances and supplies. Can't beat the location, Kamergersky lane is a pretty pedestrian street, 3 mins away from the Red Square and in close proximity of restaurants, coffee shops, stores, etc. I really liked our building too, it's a classic architecture of the 1930s, which is very solid, and therefore it's very quite inside in spite of the fact that you're right in the center of the dynamic city. I am originally from Moscow myself, but grew up away from the center, and can appreciate the exclusive location. My Moscow friends were also impressed that we were staying in such prestigious neighborhood. The ability to make unlimited free calls back to the US from the apartments is very valuable. Also, we liked the fact that there are so many TV channels in English. I speak Russian and love Russian TV, but for my fiance, who doesn't know Russian, it was nice to be able to watch different Discovery Channel networks, etc. It was a great pleasure to deal with the company. Everybody we dealt with is very responsible, polite, nice and trustworthy in person, by phone and email. We had transfers to and from the airport as well, really convenient and a great deal. Overall, to rent an apartment in Moscow thru Peace Travel is an unbeatable alternative to overpriced Moscow hotels. We will use this company without any doubts in the future and definitely recommend to everyone who plans to travel to Russia to use Peace Travel Services! Thank you very much.

I just returned from a visit to Russia. Andrei was recommended to me by my friend John (see his March 2004 entry below). Since this was my second visit to Russia I was skeptical about needing help, but I took Johnís advice and I am so pleased with the results. I was extremely pleased with the services provided by Andrei; everything was like clock work, right on time, and in great condition. Andreiís recommendations were perfect for me. Andrei treats you like you are his best friend and he will do his best to accommodate your needs. Examples, I dropped my laptop on the way to Russia and Andrei provided me a rental. I needed to be at the Moscow train station at 6am in the morning, and Andrei himself was there himself to take me to the train and to make sure I was standing in front of the correct train car!!! I wished for ballet tickets to the Bolshoi Theater, Andrei acquired tickets better than I could have imagined! I needed last minute taxi service to the outskirts of Moscow and Andrei arranged for it. Andrei takes away any worries you may have with his answers to all your questions before and while you are in Russia; he is just a phone call away. Be sure when I return to Russia, I will use Andreiís services again. Andrei adds great value to all he does for you.

I had the great pleasure of dealing with Andrei and his company in august 06, do not go to Russia as a tourist without using his company!!
Its unrivalled as far as i my experience with russian tourism goes.

We stayed in the High Rise Suite during our last stay in Moscow and absolutely LOVED it! How convienent and spacious compared to a hotel room! We adopted our first son in 2002 and just brought our second son home last week. After staying with Peace Travel for a week, we couldn't believe we didn't know of them for our four previous trips to Russia! How great that would have been versus our cramped stay at the Marriot. Especially for adoptive families - there is absolutely no better way to go than renting an apartment! Good Luck and thank you Peace Travel!

Just want to tell you again, THANK YOU, Andrei, for helping us so ably on both of our adoption trips to Russia! Thanks for going out of your way to walk with us through the frustrations caused by the lack of service with our adoption agency reps in Moscow--don't know what we would have done without you! We tell everyone we know who is considering traveling to Russia to use Peace Travel Agency!
We have no regrets . . . and neither does Phebe, who you "rescued" for us at the airport!
Thanks, and blessings to you for your friendly and caring services! Maybe some day we can have the pleasure of meeting you again!

My husband and I were in Moscow for 31 days. We were there to finalize the adoption of our 8yr. old daughter. We had heard a lot of great things about Andrei with Peace Travel. We decided to give him a tryÖ.and were we glad we did! We cannot say enough great things about Andrei and his service. He is genuinely an incredibly nice person and his customer care is impeccable. You donít even get service like that in many places in the U.S! Unfortunately our apartment was previously reserved and we had to relocate mid-way through our stay in Moscow. We found another agency with an apartment near Red Square that was available. We would save about $360 if we transferred to one of their apartments. Moscow is incredibly expensive and we were there for a long time so we needed to save all we could, so we transferred. Only 2 days into our new apartment and we had serious regrets about not continuing with Andrei! It would have been well worth the extra money to stay with him and his service. Lesson learned! We are returning to Moscow again soon and will undoubtedly be using Peace Travel. I would encourage ANY adoptive parent to use Peace Travel. You will have no regrets! Andrei goes out of his way, above and beyond, to make your stay in Moscow (which is stressful enough as it is) as comfortable and smooth as possible.

We used Andrie's services for airline tickets, hotel and apartment reservations, and transportation. We will be forever greatful to Andrie for his help. Our court date was postponed in July and we had to return home early. As you can imagine we were totatlly stressed out. Andrie was always available by phone, answers all e-mail quickly and was so very helpful to us. We were so impressed with his professionalism and determination to help you solve a problem. We will definately use Peace Travel when we return to get our girls.
July 13 , 2005 , 08:59
We used Peace travel for two trips on our adoption and had a great experience with them. Andrie is always available to answer your questions. If you are adopting from Russia I would strongly suggest you consider an apartment from Peace Travel. We even had a refund from our overpayment and Peace travel refunded the money in 7 days.

We just returned from Russia on May14. We used Peace Travel for VIP service, visa, cell phone and an apartment in Moscow. Things could not have been better. Peace travel was on the spot for everthing we needed and we have already contacted them about our next trip in June.
I can not say enough good things about this company
April 06 , 2005 , 12:14

I was going to Caucasus for the first time in December 2001 and I had huge problems with finding someone who could sell me train tickets for trips inside Russia in Norway. Peace Travels was the sollution and they gave me great service then. I went back to Caucasus and the city of Vladikavkaz this Christmas and New Years as well and off course, I used Peace Travels again. It was not even worth thinking about an other company. great service and you always feel safe with these guys. lots of thanks from Norway. Nils

I have used Peace Travel to assist me with all 4 of my trips to Russia. Andrei has been very reliable and fair in all of our dealings. When I emailed him the wrong day I needed a driver at an airport in Moscow, I was able to reach him by phone. He promptly sent a driver and ended what seemed like a huge problem at the time. Even before we left the USA our flight was delayed. I knew this could affect my travel in Russia. I got off the plane and quickly called Andrei, to explain my situation. He is so helpful when things go wrong. If you are going to Russia, you need someone you can count on if there is a glitch. Andrei can be counted on and he will not raise the prices just because you are in jam.
During my travels to the far east, it is rare to hear english so when I run into an American I always talk to them. Everyone I spoke to told me of some travel nightmare they had lived through due to the failure of their travel agent. No driver, spending the night in an airport, phone cards that never worked. It really made me realize how valuable Peace travel truly is. I have written it before and I will write it again....
Unless you speak fluent Russian, you need a reliable and honest travel agent when you are traveling in Russia. You only need one and I doubt you will find one better than Peace Travel.
Thanks again Andrei, I look forward to doing business with you again.

Pts was recomended by our adoption agency , I would HIGHLY reccomend pts too. We spent nearly a month in Moscow at the Ukrania , pts gave us a great room with a great rate of $81 per night for double occupancy. We saw in the lobby that the "rack rate" was $99 for a single, Andrei gave us a deal !
Andrei was also there to iron out a problem with the hotel clerks & gave us phone cards free of charge ! I would recomend PTS to any adoptive parents going to Moscow or Russia. Andrei you were a help to us , Thank You.
November 14 , 2003 , 15:38
My first trip to Moscow is very near, what a lot to do! ! And then PTS found me! Thank GOD
Love you all. BIG HUGS
July 30 , 2003 , 03:55
I have used PTS twice and found the service top quality.The PTS people are professional yet so cordial that I felt I was with old friends.
Recently I used a different service just to compare---BIG MISTAKE! PTS will receive all my business now,PLEASE forgive me Andrei!
July 28 , 2003 , 11:45
I think this service is unequaled anywhere in Russia and is worth every penny paid.
I went to Russia last year and used the VIP service as well as the visa service. This company performs better than advertised. I was met in the LONG customs line by an English speaking Russian gal who took me through the diplomatic lane in about 3 minutes and I was there waitng for my luggage while others were still in the customs line.
Anrei had a taxi driver (an honest one!!) there waiting for me.
My 19 year old son is going to Russia in August this year and I am going again in Septemeber and will not even consider doing business with another agency.
Thank you for the great service, Andrei !!!
July 15 , 2003 , 10:38
On my second trip to Russia I used more of Andrei's services as he had been very good on my first trip. Visa, customs, plane tickets, and drivers were all done by Andrei very well. If you are traveling to Russia and you do not speak Russian you need a good travel agent... Peace travel is all you will need... Prompt, dependable, and honest... I always have many questions and worries before I leave.. Andrei quickly answers my emails... with correct answers.... Thanks Andrei, when I return to Russia, I will contact you for more assistance.
June 07 , 2003 , 18:54
I would like to give a HUGE heart-felt THANK YOU to Andrei! I emailed him the wrong date for my arrival in Moscow, but once I contacted him from the SVO airport he arranged a driver, money exchange and my next plane ticket to my adoptive region in only 1 hour!!! He was my Knight In Shining Armour! I was so exhausted and overwhelmed-not being able to even read signs, much less speak the language! He certainly made a very emotionally draining trip much easier, and my husband & I will never forget his kindness! Thank you Andrei!! We will be contacting you for our 2nd trip arrangements! Sincerely, The Pughs

I first used PTS as a 16 yr old and I can tell u now that at the time I knew nothing about russia, people told me that when I arrived the russian mafia would kidnap me! I was very scared. PTS took all the worries out of my travels though, they met me at the arrivals hall and took me to exactly where I needed to go. everything when swiftly and I can say that my first trip to russia was definetly a good one thanks to PTS and Andrei. I am going on my second trip next month and once again I'll be using PTS. I am a bargain hunter and I can tell u that i have searched through every russian travel website and I can guarantee that PTS is by far the cheapest and probably the most reliable and friendliest. I recommend anyone wanting to travel to russia to use PTS, they're the best!

Thanks for the wonderful service you provided on my January trip to Moscow. The airport transfers went smoothly, and the VIP-Lite service was once again a delight. You made our travel easy and efficient--something that, as a new parent, I greatly appreciated. Thanks for helping us get our daughter home so smoothly.
April 01 , 2003 , 09:46
Thank you for the great service. The VIP treatment when arriving at Moscow
was unblieveable... makes you feel very Important when two beautiful women
greet you and take you into customs in front of 200 people watching you with their jaws dropped to the ground, thinking who are they?!!!!
Your services are proven...thank you
March 23 , 2003 , 20:40
I was very pleased with experience with Peace Travel. The phone card I got from Andrei worked well. The VIP service was great and a relief for me, because I was dreading customs. The 2 beautiful girls who met me when I arrived made going through passport control (you get to use the diplomat lane) and customs very enjoyable. Although there was a missing bag and they became extremely valuable as nobody at Aeroflot's lost luggage counter spoke English and all the forms were in Russian. But one of the girls found my missing bag.... and with a smile to the customs agent I went through without a question or bag opened.
Thanks again Andrei, I will be in contact when I return in July.

Andrei and his staff are absolutely reliable. They are there when they say they will be and they respond quickly to calls. The cell phone service gave us great peace of mind while we were traveling, and we will use it again.

I just want to say hello to all those who helped me on my trip. I had a blast and easy going time. I went with my friends Kami and Whittney. thank you for the great VIP.
February 25 , 2003 , 09:45
I wanted to say thanks to Andrei and staff who provided me with such excellent service while I was in Moscow. I highly recommend his services and will use them again on future trips. Thanks again Andrei.
February 02 , 2003 , 22:36
I just took my first trip to Russia in January. I wanted to say that Andrei and staff provided me with excellent VIP service. He took the stress out of my trip! I highly recommend his services and will use them again in the future. Thanks Andrei!
January 10 , 2003 , 22:21
You can count on Peace Travel Service when things don't go as planned. Andrei helped me and my friend with unexpected travel needs on New Year's day when no one else was working. It was greatly appreciated. I have used his service twice and am going to use it again in the future. A class guy!

This is in response to the negative post by Alan Tucker and is a copy of what I sent to him personally:
Regarding your negative post on the Peace Travel Services web site.
Were you able to rent the same room for $25 yourself or though someone else? I am assuming that this was your first trip to Russia and you made the unfortunate mistake to speak with someone who thought he was an expert in regards to travel in Russia and the prices to pay for services. I am no expert but I have spent a total of three months in Russia on several occassions and I can say with authority that I have never seen a hotel charge less than $65 a day. I stayed in Irkutsk which is overall less expensive than Moscow and the Hotel I considered charged $70 minimum. If you did rent this same room for $25 a day without the assistance of PTS, I would say congradulations, you are a smart traveler. If you did not, I would say "shame on you" for trying to ruin a good businessmans reputation because of second hand, incorrect information. I have listened to a lot of people who "knew it all" and experts when it comes to Russia and most of their information turned out to be just plain wrong.

Once again, thank you for your excellent service on a late and snowy evening (2 January 2003). I have made three transfers with your company now, and all three were convenient and exactly as promised. I appreciate your awareness of the difficulties of air travel in Russia, and your alertness to changes in airline schedules. Please feel free to use me as a reference if you need to assure other travelers of the quality of your service. I can only give you my highest recommendation!

Peace Travel services, and Andrei in particular, provided me with A1 service while preparing for my trip to Russia, throughout the entire duration of my visit, and they were also very helpfull in other ways after I returned to the States. I will definitely be using them again on my next trip to Russia, and I would HIGHLY recommend them to anyone considering a trip to Russia.
December 12 , 2002 , 19:07
Thanks for great services on my recent trip to Moscow! The VIP-Lite service saved me a great deal of time upon arrival, the driver who took me to the hotel was wonderful, and I thoroughly enjoyed the Kremlin view in the hotel you arranged. And I appreciated how you quickly remedied the problem that arose when the hotel double-charged me for the breakfast. I'll be contacting you again next month for my next trip's arrangements.
I was very, very pleased with the services.

No, I am not going to remove the entry just below this one. I want to leave it at least for a few months for others to read and check this out. The customer is refering to the Ukraina hotel in Moscow. Their rack rate is US$ 110, but for some reson he thinks that our special discounted rate of US$ 65 offered to him for his room should be only $ 25 as "somebody" told him.

Please remove my previous entry as I am not happy with your service. The $65 you charged me for what I discovered to be a $25 hotel room is not good service and I do not appreciate being taken advantage of. The reason everyone else is happy is because they do not know any better. I am sure this entry will be removed rather quickly.

We had the best of trips and will most definintly will use Andrei in about 4-5 more weeks for our second trip. If you are in a strange place, they will make it more safer and easy to get wher you need to be, train by car or airplane. Use them, you will not regret it. Thanks Andrei and driver.

Just wanted to say thank you for the wonderful services you provided us while we were in Moscow. The VIP service was well worth the money, the taxis were prompt and reasonably priced, and the phone card saved us a ton of money. But we especially want to thank you for letting us know about our cancelled flight. Because of your notice, we were able to rebook and had no trouble getting back home. If we ever come to Moscow again, we will definitely use your services.
September 22 , 2002 , 16:26
Andrei just got us out of a big jam. We have to spend an unexpected night in Moscow this week, and it turns out everything is booked. The Rennaissance did offer us a suite for $600... I emailed Adrei this morning, and he found us a place to rest our weary heads. Thanks Andrei!
August 07 , 2002 , 11:56
We used Andre on two different trips to Russia and could not have been happier with the services we received. I suggest corresponding with Andre prior to your trip to find out what he can do for you. Next time, he will do it all for us! Highly recommended.
June 11 , 2002 , 07:35
Thank you so much to Andrei and to Dima, who met me promptly at the airport with my tickets, and sorted out my visa, without any problems at all. When I missed my flight at Moscow, Andrei was prepared even in the middle of the night to sort out an extension for my visa. This sort of dedication and help deserves great praise, and I am very, very grateful.
July 05 , 2002 , 05:16
I have used Andrei's service for several years now. Not only when I travel but I trust his service when my wife and son travel alone to visit our family in Russia.
As Russia welcomes the world PTS greets the world with Russian friendship and honesty.
June 02 , 2002 , 03:44
Hello Andrei! I'm getting ready to use your agency for the first time and, judging by all of glowing remarks about your service, I do it with great confidence.

I have travelled to Russia twice in the past 6 months and will return in a couple of weeks for another visit. From assisting in obtaining visas, making hotel arrangements, taxi transfers, etc... Andrei has taken the "worry" out of everything. He has proven to be a model of integrity, efficiency and punctuality. Andrei will do whatever is necessary so that your trip is pleasurable and goes off without a hitch. I cannot say enough good things about this man and Peace Travel Services. Now when I deal with him, I feel like I am working with a friend.
September 20 , 2001 , 03:47
Thanks for the help in preparation for my first business trip to Russia.
August 26 , 2001 , 15:55
I was encouraged by your site that there is someone out there who will help us. Adopting abroad is daunting, but with help we know we can do it. We are already so in love with our daughters that with your help the travel is do-able. Thanks
July 01 , 2001 , 15:57
Andrei is, without doubt, an expert on foreigners traveling in Moscow. His punctuality, thoroughness, ability to improvise on short notice, and high degree of professionalism is outstanding; yet, his personal attention to details creates a feeling of friendship in a very intense city. His drivers are also very professional and helpful. I cannot speak highly enough of Peace Travel Service, and will definitely go with PTS again in the future. Bal'shoy spasiba, Andrei!

I'm a US Embassy Employee and have travelled extensively. In September 2000 I went on vacation to Moscow and Ufa and was extremely impressed with PTS. I'm returning to Russia this August as a repeat PTS customer!
May 31 , 2001 , 14:16
I recently utilized PTS for a trip through Moscow on my way to Murmansk, Russia. I missed my connecting flight and needed to spend the night in Moscow. Andrei fought the battle for me with the airline to insure that I could get on the flight the next day. He also fought the battle with the Aeroflot people to help get my hotel stay in Moscow worket out. Andrei does an incredible job taking care of his clients. With Andrei, you've got a friend in Moscow. I recommend PTS to anyone going through Moscow. Save yourself the hassle, let Andrei and company take care of you.
May 28 , 2001 , 13:52
A positive experience. I used Peace Travel Service in May for an airport transfer and to purchase a train ticket to Orel. Andrei met me at Sheremyetevo 2 with my rail ticket in hand as promised. He assisted me in registering my visa at the airport, and got me to Kurskii Vokzhal on time.
Andrei is a personable fellow, with an excellent command of English, and I would recommend his services without hesitation.
May 27 , 2001 , 13:54
Last week I arrived back in the USA after spending 5 weeks vacationing, and seeing friends in the city of Volgograd. On my trip from the USA to Moscow I used Andrei's services, and was very pleased. I decided to splurge a little and purchased the VIP airport service from Andrei, and I have to say it was well worth the cost, and the time and effort saved going through customs, and passport control in the Moscow airport. Also, Andrei arranged my hotel accomodations while I was in Moscow, and I was very pleased with this service. I also purchased my Business Visa through Andrei, and the service was excellent. I had planned on staying in Russia longer than 5 weeks, but due to a medical emergency that arose I had to leave Russia on two days notice. I contacted Andrei only 36 hours before my arrival in Moscow, and I must say Andrei went beyond the call of duty at the Moscow airport. He assisted me in everyway imaginable, and did many things to help me with the authorities there that are out of the ordinary for the normal traveler. Whenever I return to Russia I will not even consider using another service other than Andrei's. Thanks again for all your help Andrei, and I wish you the very best!

Thank you for your super prompt and reliable service. If anyone is wanting to travel to Russia/Moscow, you would be silly to not use PTS. No stress is great!
Thanks again for all your help Andrei.

Traveling to Russia can be very problematic. It's not as easy as traveling to England, Germany, or elsewhere in Europe.
Peace Travel Services (PTS) offers great services at reasonable prices. Do not try to make all the arrangements yourself. It's too frustrating and expensive!
PTS can make your travel to Russia a much less complicated, and much more enjoyable trip.

I have just returned from yet another trip to Russia - usually four each year with many arrivals and departures in and through Moscow each time. Once again Peace Travel has made the process a dream.
Andrei - you're a miracle worker! I still shudder when I think of my earlier trips, trying to negotiate the red tape and internal travel obstacle course by myself! Peace travel gets my Five-Star recommendation every time.

i would like to take this opportunity to recommend the services of PTS to anyone reading this guestbook. i, along with many of my frieds who live in russia, have used PTS. to my knowledge, everyone who has used PTS has been very happy with them. so if you want excellent service at a very reasonable price, then i would strongly recommend andrei and his associates at PTS.

I have been to Russia before (Sept 2000). I was able to do okay then, but if I could have know about this site also, I would have had been even better prepared. It is a very good site that I will recommend to others. I will be using this site to help me plan my next trip to Russia. That is for sure.
December 15 , 2000 , 16:44
I highly recommend this company to anyone visiting Russia, they take the problems out of dealing with the Russian embassy.
You receive your Visa, problem free

We used this company this late summer for taxi transfers and found them to be an excellent service. I highly recommend them.
August 22 , 2000 , 12:31
HI there, thanks very much for your help with this trip! I had a great time, I very much reccomend Andrei and PTS services. I had a complicated trip with trains/planes and went to a base.. Andrei's help made it smooth.
see you again soon hopefully.

We used PTS for our visa services and were very pleased with their work. We had not traveled abroad before, so everything was a little scary for us, but Andrei from PTS was kind enough to answer every panicked email promptly. And sure enough, our visas arrived in good order and on time. I would recommend PTS to anyone needing visa assistance.

First of all, Andrei, thank you for your personal attention, and also for your driver's kind assistance. I have recommended you and your enterprise to a number of travelers and will continue to do so. Your services, before during and after my recent visit were of sterling quality and those who are not acquainted with you (and your travel service) are the poorer for it.
Hope to see you again soon. Take care and thank you very much!

I recently returned from a trip to Russia (3/19/00). I used PTS service for plane tickets between Moscow and Ekaterinburg, transportation into Moscow for visa registration and back to the airport and between Domodedovo airport and Sheremetyevo. They also made hotel reservations for me prior to my departing Moscow. I didn't use their services for obtaining my visa, however I will in the future. As mentioned in here, you become "friends", this is a true statement.
I HIGHLY recommend anyone planning on a trip to Russia to use this services, you will not be disappointed!! I would highly recommend it to anyone and would be happy to answer emails concerning this service.

I am new to this service, but the price for the visas alone is better than other agencies I have used before. I travel with my wife to Russia at least once a year, and I know others who travel there as well. I will share this unexpected web site find with them also.
February 28 , 2000 , 20:20
I use PTS travel service all the time for my business needs and you need not go any further as they are the best. Andrey, the owner, will drive you crazy trying to make you happy and he is as honest as a person can be. Yes we are friends but this doesn't make my comments any less true. It has been my pleasure to work with Andrey and I would recommend his company without reservation.
January 27 , 2000 , 13:04
AFTER MEETING YOU IN MOSCOW, I HAVE NOW VISITED YOUR WEB SITE. THE SITE IS JUST LIKE YOU, VERY INFORMATIVE AND
PROVIDES VERY GOOD INFORMATION TO ANYONE WANTING TO VISIT RUSSIA. I AM RETURNING IN APRIL AND WILL USE YOUR SERVICES.
THANKS FOR ALL THE HELP THAT MADE MY STAY IN MOSCOW MUCH MORE PLEASENT.
November 01 , 1999 , 21:14
Your web site is super. I am not surprised considering the wonderful and professional service our group recieved on our 1998 and 1999 trips to Novosibirsk. It could not have been such a success without your help and guidance.
August 18 , 1999 , 10:32
This site is probably the most reliable source of what's really going on in Moscow. I don't know whether I'm going to use your services, but I certainly will use your info and tips.
July 25 , 1999 , 04:03
Thanks for current information (forwarded to me via another site explorer. I travel to Russia regularly, and your information was most accurate.
Thanks again .
June 08 , 1999 , 15:59
Just like to thank you for your great service. I was kind of concerned, since your prices are so low, but your service, professionalism, responsiveness and just great attitude exceeds great deal of what a great value your company already provides. I just wish I have gone to you sooner (for hotels, tours, travel within Russia etc.) instead of just limiting my self with airport transportation. Well there will be next time, and you guys are it!!!
Once again thank you...
