      I am wondering how long it will take to receive a invitation visa to Russia. Also I am wondering if there will be an english tour guide for the 2nd July Trip- it doesn't specify on the brochure- I am also wondering how many people will be on the 2nd July Tour.

      After you make payment for this booking they can get you an invitation letter in 48 hours.

      The 2nd July is a guaranteed departure and there are other 4 people booked on it. The tour leader is english speaking, that is right.

      Since we are so close to the departure this booking would be on request, this means that the tour operator will need to contact their hotel suppliers and local offices to check that it is possible for you to join the tour - this will require full payment.

      In order to request your confirmed space on this tour, we will process your payment and send your request to On the Go Tours. Please note this request can take between 2 - 3 working days to receive an answer due to time differences and elements outside of the operator's control. If your place is available, you'll be booked and confirmed on the tour, if space is not available, then we will issue a full refund.

      Please note that once the request has been sent, should you choose to cancel, regular terms and conditions for cancellation will apply (ie: 100% loss of payment within 30 days to departure).

      I can also add the they have a 20% off on this departure date and you can get a twin share room for AU$1719.20 per person. If you are travelling solo and prefer to have your own room you can add a single supplement (not mandatory) for AU$829.00

    • Lynette12th April 2018
      I haven't travelled yet but from what I've seen so far I'm extremely happy I have chosen to travel with TourRadar. From my very first enquiry I was impressed. I had been researching a number of companies to find the right tour for us but all the others took their time in replying and I had to ask a number of times for information. The team at TourRadar were always prompt with answering me and very forthcoming with information. The website was easy to use and I was very impressed that it had so much information. What information I couldn't find on the website was quickly given to me once I asked. Would I refer TourRadar to my friends.....I already have! Now I can't wait to travel
