What was good was that all the transfers worked well and we did not have to worry. The hotels were excellent.
Ethan Finch
having Go Russia book hotels and train, oversea visa application and provide transfers was invaluable.
Gordon Bass
As we had children with us, we needed to be able to rely on the transfers working- if it was just me it is easy to jump into a taxi, but with children you need to be able to know things will run smoothly
Jack Reed
I just wanted to thank you for your help in organizing the Transsiberian trip that I took in August. It was perfectly organized and really enjoyable. I was the only person using the ”independent” formula, but I really appreciated that Justgorussia put me and another passenger who was on the tour, in the same train compartment. As far as solo travel in these places, I enjoyed having the connection to your company and the others in the train. I also appreciated that your offers are kept within the budgets of average tourists, as many tour operators offer something which is not accessible to a lot of people.

Hutong Neighbourhood by Rickshaw Guided Tour We will visit an old part of Beijing – hutong neighbourhood by Shichahai Lake. Hutongs generally mean a city area with narrow streets or alleys and the word dates back to the Yuan Dynasty in the 13th century. Due to rapid development of the Chinese capital many hutongs were demolished to make way for new modern roads and buildings. However, some hutong areas have been designated protected status to preserve Beijing’s cultural heritage. We will enjoy a guided ride by rickshaw through narrow and curved alleys of this unique old part of Beijing.

Hong Kong Extension - 4 days Hong Kong has enjoyed special status since being returned to China by the British in 1997. This prosperous and vibrant territory is a world-class destination beloved by many for its curious and unique mix of eastern and western cultures. The towering skyscrapers of Hong Kong Island and the sheltered harbour that divides it from bustling Kowloon are perhaps its most iconic sight. But there’s much more to explore: outlying islands boast secluded beaches and charming fishing villages that are surprisingly rural yet easy to reach from the city. A short boat ride away is the neighbouring territory of Macao, returned by the Portuguese in 1999, and a fascinating contrast to Hong Kong.
