We are a professional travel organiser for tours to Russia and have been in this business for many years. Unlike other travel agents we are experts in our country and we are able to offer you a complete range of travel arrangements within Russia organising transfers, hotels, international fights, restaurants, any required tour extensions and additional excursions. And last but not least, we will procure the Russian visa for you (or issue valid visa support documents if you apply for your visa yourselves).

Our travel method is simple: whether you are travelling in big or small groups, we frequently get off the beaten track to encounter people and places you’d never see on a conventional school trip. Following our responsible toursm policy we bring all our travellers Russian history, culture and customs and where possible, create positive interaction with the local people to develop mutual understanding and respect. We aim not just to explore but also to experience fully the country and in particular the area visited.

In addition to our standard trips, we are pleased to offer your school special excursions in Russia such as an exchange between Russian and British schools or any cultural or educational institutions (youth choir, ballet school, children art’s studios, etc). We have close relationships with several Russian cultural organisations and we can provide you with exceptional tailor-made travel solutions.


From your initial inquiry you will be assigned a dedicated experienced travel consultant who will be available for any personal consultation regarding your trip to Russia. We are completely flexible and you can discuss all your travel requirements directly with your consultant. There are many ways you can contact us: phone, email, fax or even online chat.


We will provide our full support for your school to market the planned trip among the pupils. We have designed a range of posters and presentations that we will be happy to share with you. Please contact us for your requirements.


Our commitment to the safety and well-being of your group is the main priority for Go Russia. Safety is always our number one priority and we never compromise on it. The best expert local knowledge, support from in-country team backed by professional office staff in the UK guarantees one of the best practices in the industry. We tried and tested all services, transport, hotels, guides, entertainment options to provide you with the safe and memorable journey.

We have a valid tour operator and public liability insurance of up to £2,000,000 cover. This type of insurance covers any awards of damages given to a member of the public because of an injury or damage to their property. It also covers any related legal fees, costs and expenses.

While travelling with us you will be given a number to contact our 24 * 7 hotline centre where a member of our staff will be able to assist you in any unforeseen situation (lost in the city, missed train departure, need assistance explaining something in Russian or similar…).
