Reviews of this tour

  • Hey, I never expected my Russian holidays to be so cool and moreover they were likely cheaper than getting to a beach in California!.. Moscow was splendid just before Christmas, also I didn’t expect the Russians to be so organized and industrious – the level of service I received can certainly make many American companies feel jealous.

  • I was a leader of a group of British students being in Russia on academic exchange. We enjoyed every single moment of our Moscow guided tour – besides Kremlin, Red Square and Bolshoi Theatre we saw many modern buildings, visited a few cafes and shopping centers. As our guide was also quite young and dynamic, we felt really comfortable.

  • Together with my wife we spent some 5 days in Moscow and 3 days in St Petersburg at the end of August and fulfilled our long-time dream. Our guided tour in Moscow was really comprehensive, after that with the help of our guide we also managed to visit Bolshoi theatre. Thanks for the amazing opportunities, we will certainly do our best to get back.
