|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.|
|Escape the bustling city of St Petersburg with an overnight stay in ancient Novgorod. Your visit begins with a tour of the historic Kremlin (Fortress) grounds and the open air museum of Russian wooden architecture, then there's free time to independently explore 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.|

The tour leader was very knowledgeable and informative. I listened to all her stories enchanted. Really enjoyed the tour. It had a perfect mixture of group sightseeing and free time to explore sites on your own.
A wonderful tour. We had a great time and met some great people. Hotels were of great quality, our tour guide was fantastic; could not have been more helpful, friendly and understanding of our budget.
Kristy & David,
Really glad i did Russia in winter with all the snow, it was totally freezing but absolutely amazing. Glad I bought that fur hat!
Thanks for a very memorable experience.
The knowledge of every aspect of the tour that katya had on her country was brilliant. She knew all the answers to our questions and all the facts about such a great amount of history!
My Russia experience is definitely the one to remember!
I would just like to thank you for all your help organising our tour to Russia. We had an absolutely fabulous time. Many thanks also to tour tour guide Katya who was a wealth of knowledge and went out of her way to organise extra things to keep us busy in our spare time.
Once again thank you for all your help.
I wish I could have spent longer but it was worth getting over there, even just for 6-days.
