    Ross Cable, Australia Discovery Russia - 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, knowledgeable 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 t

    Jawad, USA: A tour company better than I thought possible

    They go above an beyond any realistic expectations one can have. It was my first trip to Russia and I was very specific about what I wanted to do... I wanted to visit sites related to World War II and had limited time. After some back and forth emails discussing the options, I had a really good itinerary ready that would keep me busy in Russia. I went to Moscow and Volgograd. The hotels were in the city center in excellent locations. The guides knew their stuff and they had the car included in one of the days and we were on foot on the other. Its worked better than I could have imagined. I got a much better feel for the place walking in beautiful weather and the metro in Moscow a something of a looker to begin with. And this for a trip that was not listed as their expertise!!!

    I cannot recommend this company especially Hope in Melbourne, Australia and Kristina in Moscow, highly enough!!!! These are the individuals I dealt with so I am naming them and if I was traveling again, I would get in touch with them since I have their contacts but I would have no qualms about anyone else at this company.
