    Ross Cable, Australia: Discovery Russia Tours - a bespoke experience

    Discovery Russia Tours interacted with us throughout the entire process to provide a tailored experience in line with our unique interests. Expert guides were provided where required and the precise itinerary and budget was delivered as we wished. The staff were professional, knowledgable and hugely helpful, smoothing what might be regarded as a daunting experience into an enjoyable and stress-free lifetime event. I would recommend these Russia travel experts to any person interested in travelling to Russia, particularly to out of the way locations or for niche interests such as war history.

    I have travelled 3 times in the past 3 years with Discovery Russia. They have been able to offer awesome assistance, not only for the 'usual' tourist sites but in accommodating requests to visit somewhat unusual destinations with special requirements. For example, 4WD vehicles for the battlefield at Kursk. Their care and attention really makes travel in Russia straightforward and undaunting, particularly with airport transfers, assistance with SIM cards and language challenges. We will definitely be using Discovery Russia in future.
