About our tours

WTA Winner 2014

With a Real Russia tour, you will be travelling within a small group of like minded travellers, a third of the way around the world, along the legendary Trans-Siberian railway.

Unlike conventional group tours, where you’ll see large groups and flag waving guides, our small group adventures are informal and flexible, allowing you plenty of time to do your own thing.

Prepared by our award winning Trans-Siberian experts each tour is a balance between the group activities and excursions and personal time for you to explore independently or relax as you like.

Go beyond the ordinary

Firstly, lets say what our tours are not. Our tours are built to meet a quality standard not a target price. We don’t do tours with brief sightseeing trips followed by days of “free time” and a dull selection of low value optional excursions. We don’t use the cheapest accommodation, or use local students to walk you about the city and we certainly don’t select trains based on price.

Initially based on what we would want to do ourselves, and listening to our thousands of satisfied customers, our itineraries have been prepared by our award winning Trans-Siberian experts.

Our tours use the best accommodation for value, location and quality, trusted local suppliers and professional guides to explore the “must see” as well as the less well known sights, trains are selected based on their quality and convenience to you, with stop overs in cities that are combined to provide the right balance of activities and free time, all to ensure you get the most this trip can offer.

Our tours are designed with flexibility in mind and with each tour there are three ranges to choose from to suit most budgets and experiences. In addition, each tour can be tailored to suit you, whether you want to upgrade your accommodation, add excursions or have a private tour.

Your journey can be extended to make your incredible trip go that little bit further. With two, three or four day options, you can, depending upon which route you take, explore and spend more time in Moscow, discover Beijing, the ancient powerhouse of modern China, the mysterious pacific coastal city of Vladivostok or experience stunning St Petersburg, one of Russia’s greatest cities.

All dates are guaranteed and there is no minimum group size required, however we do limit the number of travellers on each tour to ensure we maintain a personal, not a herd, experience.

Your adventure starts from the moment you see the Real Russia logo, so relax, and let us help you take a journey you will never forget.
