    My trip was amazing and I couldn’t recommend our leader Anton Bruskov enough. He was knowledgeable, personable and went above and beyond to help us, even during his own off time. The reason I am less likely to recommend intrepid stems from the trainee... Show more

    Anton is the most amazing guide. He had an amazing gift of educating and being involved but also leaving you to your own space and making up your own mind on the tour.

    Tour Guide Anton made us feel immersed in Russian culture and experiences.Since it is still very cold in Russia - it takes skills keeping cold people engaged!

    I found that in comparison to a large (~3) group tour that I had previously done, it was a much nicer environment travelling with a small group. I particularly enjoyed about Intrepid the fact that you get to meet local people in a very close setting... Show more

    The trip certainly exceeded expectations. I was apprehensive about going to Russia as it’s not a common tourist destination for us. The food, people, sights and experiences were excellent. I do think aspects of the trip were a bit slow.

FAQs

  • 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.
