Starting in Moscow, we visit iconic attractions including the Kremlin and Red Square, before travelling to St Petersburg - a city so rich in history its entire centre is a UNESCO World Heritage site.
We fly from London Heathrow to Moscow, transferring on arrival to our hotel, the 4-Star Marriott Tverskaya. We experience the spirit of Russian hospitality on arrival, with a Russian welcome ceremony that includes being served bread and salt - a tradition associated with long friendship. Dinner is served at the hotel this evening.

Excellent organisation and management. Loses a star due to the Visa issues.
Mrs F Carmichael
great tour, guide spot on and others in group easy to get on with.
Very well organised trip. The guide, Jilly, was under pressure at times due to other issues but coped well and remained professional
Mrs D Conway
We felt the Moscow section of the tour was a bit rushed . We saw lots but did not have time for a reasonable lunch stop. The guide was helpful and told us many things. The St Petersburg section was much better. We still saw plenty but there was time to relax too. It really was a good introduction to Russia.
The hotels were good and the staff helpful The guides were knowelegeable
Mr A Hartup
A very enjoyable holiday. Things ran very smoothly with the guiding hand of an excellent tour manager - Cecile - and two very good local tour guides. I would given a five star rating but for the last dinner in a Russian restaurant which did not run smoothly (pre ordered menu not delivered in our case) Service was not very friendly.
Two of Russia's most beautiful cities
