Experience Russia
“Just returned from this trip. It was fast paced, covering Moscow, Novrogod, Pushkin and St Petersburg, all in a week. Our tour guide Artem met us at the airport and was always on hand, from making sure we knew when and when we needed to met for each activity to giving advice on what to do during our free time (its limited on this trip), he also took us to some great restaurants which catered for those who wanted to taste the local cuisine and those wanting a more European choice. He was always on hand to help translate, which was needed. All the hotels we stayed in were clean and comfortable and well located close to attractions. Some didn't have tea & coffee making facilities so take a travel kettle if necessary. The trip covered most of the must see sights so days were full on, so comfy shoes are a must! The highlight for was Red Square at night and Catherine Palace but nowhere disappointed. All in all a good trip, giving us a real taste of Russia. I'd recommend adding a day before and after the trip as there's loads to see if both Moscow and St Petersburg which isn't covered.”

Fascinating trip!
“I absolutely loved this trip and found it incredibly rich in culture and history. It was a lot to take in and rather fast paced at times, but by the end of it the whole group was up to speed on the different leaders and monarchs or Russia through the ages and had a good insight as to how the country/cities have developed to what they are today. Our leader, Artem, was full of passion and love for his country and shared his views and hopes for the future which made the trip even more insightful and interesting. Get ready for a lot of gold, chandeliers and palaces!”

From Russia with Love
“This is a fast-paced tour covering 4 cities in 7 days with almost as many modes of transport. The whirlwind of Moscow and St Petersburg is tempered by the quietness and quaintness of Novgorod and Pushkin. I had no idea what to expect of Russia and you can almost be put off by the visa application process alone, but what I found was a friendlier, cleaner and much greener country than I expected. This trip gives you an ideal mechanism of seeing the key tourist sites plus a little of the country and leaves you wanting to go back to sample more.”
