Make the most of your time away! Listed below are the optional activities that are available on this trip. Please note that you will need to book these prior to travel as we cannot always guarantee availability of these activities once you are on holiday.
|Start the day with a visit to either the gardens of palatial Peterhof, overlooking the Gulf of Finland in the summer OR Catherine Palace at Tsarskoe Selo in the winter (Pavlosk Palace is viewed if Catherine Palace is closed). We stop for lunch at the popular restaurant, where we enjoy a hearty meal, before exploring inside the beautiful Church on Spilled Blood.|
|Take a step back in time - enjoy a guided tour of the stunning Royal Residences of the Russian Tsars, located in the outskirts of St Pete's and admire the beautiful Russian countryside on the way. Our Catherine Palace (winter) or Peterhof Gardens (summer) bolt on is available on all tours visiting St Petersburg.|
|Head 65 meters underground to the Underground Cold War Museum - a Stalinist-era Soviet Bunker that up until recently was a top secret symbol of Soviet Power. This mighty 75,000-square-foot facility was constructed covertly in the 1950s, to protect the select few against a US nuclear attack. Step back in time to the clandestine and tense era of the Cold War and enjoy an interactive tour of this bunker turned museum, followed by a tour of the most luxurious and extravagant of the Stalinist era metro stations with their marble columns and chandeliers all with an English speaking guide.|
|Escape the bustling city of St Petersburg with an overnight stay in a country house in ancient Novgorod. Your visit begins with a tour of the historic Kremlin (Fortress) grounds and the open air museum of Russian wooden architecture. You’ve free time to admire Novgorod - listed by UNESCO as one of the top 100 cities of the world. Why not soak up the views from a leisurely walk along the Volkhov river, visit one of the great medieval abbeys, or wander round the quaint shops and bars.|

I loved all the sights in St. Petersburg, Novgorod and Moscow and the historical information we received.
Alex Killen ,
The guide, Olga, was exceptionally good, keen, intelligent, involved, efficient, etc. The tour leader probably was the most important factor in making this such an exceptionally good experience.
Arnold Levin ,
Our guide was fantastic - very knowledgeable and friendly. He is a great asset to your company.
Yevgeny was a wonderful guide! Friendly, helpful and knowledgeable I highly recommend him as a tour guide - He is also good looking :)
Peta Holness ,
A fun trip, quite interesting. Rarely boring. Russia is not an easy country to travel in, but I appreciated all the help from the guides and from on the go. The local staff were also very good - they were tremendous help to me after I lost my passport.
Both St.Petersburg and Novgorod were Absolutely Amazing. The whole Experience of those Cities was great- the ballet, the church on spilled blood, the Banya and the hotel in Novgorod.
Shahedah Sabdia ,
It's been an amazing experience. I enjojed the size of the groop and was very impressed how hospitable + knowlegeble Viktorisa was.
Madeleine Winterton ,
Just to let you know I had a fantastic holiday. Katya our guide was amazing, her knowledge of Russian History, Politics and Architecture was immense. She had a wonderful sense of humour and no request was too difficult for her to fulfill. I got to go to two ballets thanks to Katy's organisation (one at the Marinsky) which was such a special experience.
The overall tour organisation was efficient, plus the variety of the itinerary meant there was something to suit everyone.
