Frequently Asked Questions

    • When and where does the tour end?

      This tour ends after breakfast on the last day of the tour at Izmailovo Delta Hotel in Moscow and it's time to say goodbye to your new friends and check-out of the hotel at 11 am. Please be aware the hotel is subject to change until your final documents are released.

    • When and where does the tour start?

      The first day of the tour generally starts from Moscow Hotel in St. Petersburg and as the first day is just an arrivals day you can arrive at any time. At the terminal, keep your eyes open for the Travel Talk sign, as they pick you up from the airport and take you to the hotel. There is an informal meeting planned for the evening at approximately 6:00 pm so we recommend arriving beforehand so you can meet your group and fellow travellers. After the meeting, you can join the group for a walk and partake in an optional group dinner if you wish. Please note that the joining point is subject to change until your final documents are released.

    • What are the optional excursions?

      The optional excursions for this tour are:

      Group Dinner
      Tsar's Route
      Catherine's Palace
      Folklore Show
      Moscow By Night
      Tretjakov Gallery

      Please note that this list is a guideline only and that pricing will be available with your finalised travel documents.

    • What is the age range?

      Generally, Travel Talk's passengers tend to be between the ages of 18 and 39, however, they do welcome more mature travellers with a young outlook. Unfortunately, children and young travellers under the age of 18 are not eligible to participate in this tour.

    • Is there a hotel list available?

      All accommodations are subject to change until 4-6 weeks before the departure date, however, after your booking is finalised you will be issued with your final trip documents with your confirmed hotel list. To give you an idea of the type of accommodation TravelTalk uses on this tour, below is a list of the hotels that they generally use, but please be advised that they are subject to change:

      Moscow Hotel - St. Petersburg
      Izmailovo Delta Hotel - Moscow

    • Are the flights included?

      Flights before and after the tour are not included in the tour price and you need to arrange these separately by yourself once your tour is guaranteed. As we specialise in organising the best tours around the world for you, we are unable to advise on flight prices or book flights on your behalf. If you have not already booked your flights we recommend checking out the following link which is powered by Skyscanner - https://flights.tourradar.com

    • Do I need a visa?

      As a tour booking website, TourRadar cannot organise visas for you on your behalf as the visa requirements are regularly being updated and vary for the nationality of one traveller to the next. It is for this reason that we recommend checking with your local embassy or consulate website for the latest up to date information.

    • Can you assist with booking additional accommodation?

      Of course, we can! Once you have a confirmed booking on this tour, we can request additional accommodation for you with the tour operator.

    • What is the average age of the travellers on this tour?

      Generally, most of the travellers are between 25-40 years of age.

    • Do you arrange airport transfers?

      An arrival airport transfer is included in this tour for guests arriving on Day 1 of the tour between 5:00 am and 11.59 pm. There is, on the other hand, no departure transfer included in the tour, and guests are required to make their own way to the airport at the end of the tour.
