Trans-Siberian & Mongolia, May 2014
Ksenia told us at the start of the tour that this was her first tour with Interpid, however we would not have known that unless we were told. She went out of her way to make everyone on the group happy and was doing a lot of things behind the scenes to make the trip go smoothly that we only knew after she had done them. Really happy with the work that she put in and would definitely go on another tour with her as the leader.
