Discover Russia and its Neighbours with the Go Russia Travel Experts

Go Russia is an award winning UK based tour operator specialising in holidays to Russia, the countries of the former USSR, Mongolia and China. No matter where in the region you’d like to go, we have a tour for you, from Moscow and St. Petersburg city breaks, to leisurely Russian river cruises. If you’re yearning to explore, we can lead you along the Golden Ring or take you on a cross-continental Trans-Siberian rail journey. For adrenaline junkies we also organise adventure holidays in Russia, such as climbing Mount Elbrus, trekking in Kamchatka, horse-riding in the Altai Mountains and more.
 
We’re also a special event specialist, so whether you want to attend the MAKS International Aerospace Show or the 2018 FIFA World Cup, we can make it happen. We are also proud to be one of the few providers in the world offering truly unique space and aviation related programmes - flights on supersonic MIG-29 fighters, private tours of the Cosmonaut Training Centre (Star City), tours to the Baikonur cosmodrome to witness International Space Station mission launches, and zero-gravity flights.  With us, the world - and beyond - really is your oyster.
Forget what you’ve heard about Russia being a cold country. That only goes for our winter weather. Russia has deep-seated traditions of hospitality, kindness and generosity which ensure that our visitors are guaranteed a friendly welcome.  We’re keen to show you our culture and that of our Mongolian and Chinese neighbours. Go Russia will take care of all the arrangements, from visas to travel, accommodation to the very best sightseeing programmes - all you have to do is enjoy it.
