    Lorena D'Souza: travelled with Discovery Russia in January this year and did their essential Russia tour of St Petersburg and Moscow and would absolutely recommend

    I was a little apprehensive about travelling to Russia but really had nothing at all to worry about.

    Discovery Russia organised everything from pick ups to private tours, metro cards and provided a very useful guide to completing the visa processes. What I particularly liked was the fact that my friend and I were NOT thrown into tours with 20-50 people but that we had a personal tour guide with us who gave us a private tour of these cities-palaces, museums and the cities in general. This made the experience far more enjoyable and personalised.

    We were NEVER left in a museum with an audio guide (which at times can be disengaging), but rather had a guide talk to us about the most popular and historically significant items/artworks. The tour guides were beyond knowledge, professional and always had our interests at heart. Furthermore, the company provides Russian SIM cards and our tour manager Tati was available literally available 24/7, always checking our transfer our tour guide had arrived. I can not recommend this company enough if you are thinking about travelling to Russia.

    Spend 4 days in beautiful St Petersburg , then catch the bullet train to Moscow where you will spend a further 3 days exploring one of the most famous cities on Earth. Book onto this extremely popular Russian tour now!
