  • We offer a more extensive range and guaranteed services than a private guide does. Your trip is not going to depend on the well–being of an individual and his/her availability. Our services as a tour operator are insured in accordance with the Russian laws;
  • Our customers do not seek for affordable "lolly pop" large group tours where people might learn facts and names but see a place from a bus window. They want to travel on a deeper, emotional and more personal level. Our friendly guides provide the local expertise, insight and interaction opportunities along with their rich knowledge of the Russian history and art;
  • We offer unique, interactive travel experiences including tours of “must see” sites for the first-time visitors to Russia and special interest tours for discerning travellers;
  • We are primarily a tour activity provider but also offer such services as accommodation and individual arrival/departure transfers;
  • We care about your expences and do not add any credit card or any other bank fees to the tour price.

Planning Your Private Trip to Russia

Ideally we start planning your trip to Saint Petersburg, Moscow or other places of Russia long time before your actual departure time. Our mission is to make you feel comfortable about every single detail of your Russian holiday. We would love to hear from you about your interests, hobbies, travel experiences and other requirements. Every detail is important to make your Russian vacation a successful one. We are experienced in organizing and running tours for families with kids, seniors, solo travelers, mixed groups and wheelchair accessible tours.

The detailed logistics of your Russian trip including quality accommodation, visa support documents, meet and greet airport/railway station transfer, around city transportation, pre-booked museum admissions, meals of your preference, theatre/concert bookings and comprehensive sight-seeing tours of Moscow and Saint Petersburg are our responsibility.

We are not travel agents trying to sell what we have not seen or experienced. Hotels recommended meet different budget requirements and most importantly have the same customer-service standards as we do regardless of number of stars. The central location is a must requirement for hotels we recommend. We are always eager to perform a personalized hotel search for our customers or negotiate a deal with a hotel of your choice.

We design individual itineraries of Saint Petersburg and Moscow around your wish list and take away the hassle of planning it yourself. We can style a personalized Russian tour program based on your period of stay, tailored around your personal interests, preferences and budget. We provide itineraries that are unique, customized and memorable.
