The preferred setting for many a spy novel, legendary Moscow is a thoroughly modern city with vibrant nightlife and green open spaces popping up alongside what could perhaps be considered the very foundation of the country - the mighty Kremlin. The attractive port city of St. Petersburg is filled to the brim with impressive art collections and cultural treasures from around the world. Head out of the cities and you'll find the picture-perfect rural towns of the historic Golden Ring.

Discover Russia on an escorted group tour covering the main highlights or journey across the country on an epic Trans-Siberian Railway adventure.

Russia tour reviews

Had a great tour with my son. We had a few issues with delayed flights into Moscow and Bella did a fantastic job of ensuring we still had somebody to meet us at the airport. Hotel was comfortable although food was a bit average. Our guide on day 2 (Sergei) was very knowledgeable and helped us get last minutes tickets to the ballet which we had not anticipated being able to get.

My Son and I would like to say a big thank you to Mikhail who showed us around on the 3rd day we really do appreciate his time and he made us feel most welcome in Moscow and made sure we got to see all the sites we wanted to see. We would recommend Bella and her team and the 4 day tour if you only have a couple of days free to visit Moscow.”

I must say that I really enjoyed the tour. The accommodation was top-notch, the meals were pleasant and the transportation well suited for our needs. Our guide was very nice and professional and ensured that we were safe and comfortable all throughout the journey. I would definitely recommend On the Go tours to others.”
