It was 2 perfect days in the south of Russia. We visited many pleasant places, such as urban and natural attractions, a salmon farm, a winery, etc. And all this was with a discussion in English. This was very useful for me and another group that also studied English. I can say that all the events were on time, and we were in no hurry. I was satisfied and relaxed after this trip.
