Three Capitals: Kiev - Moscow - St. Petersburg (CB-18)

We have designed this amazing tour to introduce you to the past and present capitals of Russia and the Ukraine, the beautiful cities of Moscow, St. Petersburg and Kiev. It is in Kiev, an ancient city on the bank of the beautiful Dnepr River, that the Russian people were introduced to Christianity more than a thousand years ago.
From Kiev you move to magnificent Moscow, the present capital of Russia, its business and cultural centre. Your journey will end in the elegant “museum city” of St. Petersburg, the former capital of Russia, founded by the rebel tsar Peter the Great. This tour offers you the incredible experience of discovering the cultural and historic treasures of two countries in ten unforgettable days!

In May 2020 Russia will be celebrating the 75th anniversary of the victory in the WWII. An extensive festive programme is planned and many foreign high rank officials are expected at the victory parade. Be prepared to road closures and inconvenience when travelling. The Red Square will be closed from 01 to 10 May 2020. The Moscow Kremlin may be closed as well (not confirmed yet).

The transfer to and from the airport was exactly on time The guides were very knowledgeable and helpful and the itineraries well thought out. The hotel room, food and service were excellent.
Amy Wilson
The personal assistance given during the booking process was invaluable and resulted in my decision to book through the company. Each of the tour guides was extremely knowledgeable, helpful, able to answer any question threw at them, and each dealt well with situations that arose during the tours.
Yasmin Fraser
Tour guides in Kiev (Tanya) and St Petersburg (Tasha and Kate) were excellent. Also, Paul (the driver in Kiev) was excellent. He went out of his way to ensure we were on the correct train. Overall very happy with GO Russia's Organisation and Visa Application Process and I have already recommend to others wishing to travel to Russia.
Hayden Summers
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.
Peter Gould
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.
Abby Andrews
Given that it was a short holiday it was essential to have a pick up from the airport and transport arranged to railway stations and a guide with good English to give us the most from our Russian tour. All the tickets to the sites were pre bought which kept queuing down for entry and the holiday went like clock work. It also gave us the flexibility to add on different tours and excursions. Good mix of free time to explore and to participate in organised events.
Ethan Miller
What was so good about this trip and how Go Russia was different from other companies was that you use local guides only and there is no tour leader. This gave us a lot more free time to do what ever we wanted, eat where we wanted and yet still meet other travellers making use of the same local guide.
Kyle Clarke
All transfers and pickups were done on time. The guides were very helpful when required.
Ellis Hopkins
We really appreciated having our drivers help us to the actual train coach at the train stations. Since we don't speak any Russian, this was extremely helpful and reduced our stress considerably!! Also, our guide for 3 days in St Petersburg was Natasha and she was amazing!!

St. Petersburg
Draw Bridges Night Tour by Car Like Venice, St. Petersburg is spread across a lot of big and small islands and it's hard to walk more than a few hundred meters without crossing a bridge! St. Petersburg has the largest number of bridges of any city in the entire world. With a total of 539 bridges (315 in the historical centre alone), not even Venice, Stockholm or Amsterdam can beat the city’s total! And more than 20 of all bridges are drawbridges. The elegance of some bridges can be compared only to the beauty of the city architectural ensembles. The bridges of St. Petersburg have become an integral part of the city.

St. Petersburg Boat Trip with an Audio-guide A new perspective on St. Petersburg can be gained from water-level and the boat trips visit some areas of the city that might not be reached on ground. The looming silhouettes of the bridges, the grandeur of the waterways, the granite embankments with their various piers and slipways, the 18th and 19th century palaces and parks on the banks of the Neva and the canals, architectural landmarks in the form of the domes and spires of churches and cathedrals, visible from a long way off - all this contributes to the unique appearance of the "Venice of the North". The boat trip is with a recorded audio-guide.

Chernobyl Guided Tour Our full day tour inside the 30km exclusion zone around Chernobyl affords a unique opportunity to see the remains of the nuclear power station which was the site of a terrible accident in 1986. Today, the nearby city of Pripyat lies abandoned. It’s safe to visit – the amount of radiation you’ll get is the equivalent to what you’d experience on a two hour flight and less than having an X-ray. On the tour, you’ll see apartments which still bear witness to this disaster that led to the hurried evacuation of over 50,000 residents. You will visit abandoned schoolsand experience the eerie silence of this ghost town. At the Red Forest stop, you’ll hear the crackling sounds of Geiger counters in the background and meet some of those who moved back to the area after their evacuation.
