Delve into the fascinating history and modern delights of Russia's most cosmopolitan cities - St. Petersburg and Moscow with our group tours. Focus on one city over four days or combine them both travelling by overnight sleeper train. Explore the attractive city of Pskov, the peaceful Pechory Monastery, the riverside Kremlin of Nvogorod or sample the Trans-Siberian railway out to Yekaterinburg with our selection of itineraries. Or perhaps visit when the sun never sets and museums are open all night!

We also now include a Welcome Dinner on day 1 of the tour where you can meet your tour leader and fellow travel companions over a bite to eat in a relaxed setting.
