“Tour is a good introduction to Estonia and Russia. New Years Eve Celebrations are one of Russia's biggest celebrations and was awesome to be a part of. The cities decorated for Christmas is an added bonus.”
Your trip starts here. Make the most of your day by stalking the major sites and embracing Finnish tradition with a hearty salmon soup (lohikeitto) for lunch. Alternatively, try ice skating or foodie-stall hopping at Old Market Square before meeting your soon-to-be-besties for a group dinner.

Meals:
-Dinner
We'll ferry it from Helsinki to the Silicon Valley on the Baltic Sea, where Skype was invented and kids start coding at six. Be enamoured by Tallinn’s fairytale charm, check out the only surviving Gothic town hall in northern Europe and chow down on an included dinner. Nom nom.

Included today:
-Baltic Sea ferry crossings

Meals:
-Breakfast
-Dinner
Today we've lined up the goods. Go all knight in shining armour with a medieval tour of the city (horse not included) and feed your inner hippie with a flower power optional visit to Kadriorg Palace. Must do: Hunt down the spot where you can see all five of the town's church spires.

Included today:
-Walking tour of Tallinn

Meals:
-Breakfast

Optional activities:
-Visit Kadriorg Palace
Russia is bigger than Pluto, so it's understandable today's drive will take a while. Remember: good things come to those who wait. Say Zdravstvujtye (zdrah-stvooy-tee = hello) as we arrive in St. Petersburg in time to scope out the Venice of the North on a guided tour. Love: the Church of the Spilt Blood in all its domed and glitter glory.

Included today:
-Driving tour of St. Petersburg with local guide

Meals:
-Breakfast
-Dinner
With 3 million items in the archives, the Hermitage Museum is your morning (and more if you want) sorted. It has the largest collection of paintings in the world and guard cats that protect them from rodents. Afterwards: go for your life, it's your choice.

Included today:
-Visit The State Hermitage Museum

Meals:
-Breakfast
Dress in your finery (Russians do a good line in chic) and take in the city at your pace today. Why not dial-up your inner hipster with a visit to the city's street art museum. See: 'All I Know About Street Art' for instant cred. Then all aboard the night train for Moscow.

Meals:
-Breakfast
Bounce (technically, roll) into Moscow this morning to mix it with the billionaires – the city is home to the largest number of high-rollers in the world. You've got the day to explore at your leisure before the whole crew are back together for dinner.

Included today:
- Walking tour of Moscow with local guide

Meals:
-Breakfast
-Dinner
We've got your history book beat today. Take a trip to Moscow State University – former holder of the title, ‘biggest building outside of New York’. Check out the Red Square, then onto the Kremlin. Facty bit: The Kremlin was saved from WWII bombing by disguising it as a normal house. The evening's yours.

Included today:
-Guided tour of Moscow Kremlin

Meals:
Breakfast
St. Basil's Cathedral in winter blows all those Hans Christian Andersen fables out of the water. Ogle the onion domes and pop back in on Putin at the Kremlin before going underground for the world's cheapest (art) ticket at one of 196 insanely elaborate metro stations.

Meals:
-Breakfast
-Dinner

Optional activities:
-Guided tour of Moscow's metro art
Time to say ‘poka’ (bye) after breakfast but it's a good thing it also means 'so far' – Moscow might not be done with you yet!

Meals:
-Breakfast
