Our biggest value is to cater your individual needs and expectations

Before suggesting places to visit and things to do, we will inquire for your style of travel, motivation to travel to Russia and individual interests. We understand that a tour organized for a young family, an adventure seeker or a luxury traveler should be different, therefore, we do our best to match each itinerary to a definite tourist profile.

Our personalized approach to all our tourists

Not only are we ready to answer questions about the Russian history and culture but also to share our stories and tell you about the current life of a new generation in Russia in order to give you a perspective on Russia nowadays. Our team believes that this is the best way to explore the country and its people. Moreover we aim at presenting the positive image of our country to the rest of the world.

We try to preserve Russia beauty and uniqueness; therefore, we act sustainably on all levels of our operations. We also encourage you to travel consciously. Not only because it’s just a good thing to do, but mostly because responsible travel is considered the most enjoyable way to travel – it brings you closer to local people and their culture and gives you a chance to experience the authenticity of the place you have come to.
