See what our clients say about this tour
We are very happy to have served thousands of happy customers who travelled with us.
This trip to Russia has been an excellent introduction for me and I would like to explore more of this beautiful country in the near future. I felt secure in the fact that Go Russia paid attention to detail and no stone would be left upturned regarding scheduling and timings and, of course, processing of the visa.
Every little detail was catered for so that we felt safe and secure at all times that everything was taken care of. All the detail given before the trip was incredibly useful. Everything was on time and as planned. Guides were absolutely brilliant and their knowledge was amazing.
Enough free time to explore on our own. Having the guides available for any help we needed. All guides spoke English very well. The places we toured were fabulous. Way beyond our expectations. The help with the visa process.
Well organised, good itinerary, excellent and friendly tour guides.
What was planned was fulfilled - meeting up with taxis, guides etc. Chosen venues to visit were as wanted. Knowledge of guides excellent.
