    Anastasia Urchagina was an excellent guide with tremendous knowledge of Moscow and St Petersburg. She went the extra mile to ensure we had a great time in her country.

    • 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
