Russian Tourism Ministry received no complaints from Russians who are in Greece
Russian tourists who are on holidays in Greece, did not feel any effects of the economic crisis in the country, the press secretary of Russian Tourism Ministry Irina Schegolkova reported on Thursday.
"We did not receive any complain from the tourists who are in Greece. We got phone calls only from those who bought tickets and going to fly in the near future. These people ask if their trip will be comfortable," Irina Schegolkova said. According to her, there are no reasons for concern for Russians to go to Greece. "The difficult situation in Greece effected locals, but not the tourists. Tourism is a major source of income for the country, so hoteliers will create all the conditions for tourists to be satisfied and to come again. Stories about the food problems or empty tables are nothing else than horror stories. All tourists are accommodated, and have everything they supposed to. We did not get any complain yet," the press secretary of Russian Tourism Ministry said.
