Questions & Answers

Here we have collected and answered the most frequently asked questions about this tour.

    • With which currency will I pay for the Russian optional activities?

      You will have to pay your trip manager Euros and cash for all of the optionals in Russia.

      The reason you don't pay in Russian Rubles is because it is a very unstable currency.

    • How do I get a Russian Visa?

      You will be responsible for getting your own Russian visa for this trip. It is best to contact your local embassy and get them to advise you about how you can get this visa.

    • How do I get my Belarusian Visa?

      Your trip manager can help facilitate your Belarusian Visa while you are on tour.

      It is a good idea to have a passport photo and around $80USD in cash to pay your trip manager so they can get the visa on your behalf.
