Vicky "This was a brilliant holiday. Our guide Yulia was fantastic and the balance of included stuff and free time was just right for us as we were a bit worried about travelling in group, but I'd really recommend it. Loved Moscow, and would suggest being there a day or two early to really explore the city. The hotels were fine, no frills, but you don't spend much time in them anyway so why pay more when..."

      Russian Highlights was excellent. Our family loved the country and our guide Ira made it a stress-free holiday. The small number ensured that we had time to get know one another. Being in Jeff's guest-house enabled our group to get to know one another more... Read more

      I enjoyed my trip to Russia, but my experience has now been soured by recent events in Ukraine. I would recommend all tourists reconsider their desire to visit Russia at moment

    Questions & Answers

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

    • Do I need a visa?

      We recommend contacting your local embassies for the most up to date information about Visas required for Russia.

      As a tour booking website, we cannot be an effective and accurate visa authority as this information is regularly being updated and varies for the nationality of one traveller to the next.
      It is for this reason that we recommend checking your local embassy or consulate's website for the latest up to date information.

      Please contact your Travel Expert for the trip notes which may contain some guidance regarding Visa requirements. However, it is up to you to seek out any relevant visas.

      TourRadar made online booking a pleasure. Responses to questions I had were within less than 24 hours, team was personal but professional. Once I set up my profile I could easily access my booking and see all previous correspondence. TourRadar is better than a local travel agency
