About our tour ranges

Real Russia has drawn on years of experience in the region to create three ranges of our tours and a wide selection of options to give you maximum choice and flexibility in choosing your Trans-Siberian adventure.

Each tour range gives you a different experience depending on the standard of accommodation you require and whether you want a full escorted tour or to travel more independently.

Explore Range

For the Independent traveller who likes to plan their own adventures but with all the main work done for them, the Explore range of tours includes all train bookings, arrival, departure and in-tour transfers and good value 2* hotels or homestays, so that you are free to decide what you want to do and when.

Discover Range

Designed for flexibility, our Discover range provides tours that include; all train bookings, transfers from arrival to final departure, centrally located quality 3* accommodation and a selection of half day tours with expert guides, whilst still leaving you with plenty of free time for further exploration.

Experience Range

Our premium range of tours take care of all travel arrangements from the moment you arrive, including train reservations, transfers, full day excursions accompanied by a professional guide and the finest 4* hotels. There is free time as well, though the days are full enough that you may prefer to relax and enjoy the atmosphere.

Tailor your tour

You are free to customise your tour and upgrade any parts that you wish to. For example, you might choose a tour on our Explore range but would really like a guided tour of Lake Baikal, or you have chosen an Experience tour but would like to try the adventure of a homestay in Yekaterinburg. We can offer you the flexibility to make your perfect trip, speak to one of our tour specialists today.

If you prefer not to travel within a small group, then we can arrange for an independent variant of a tour for you and your companions.

A wonderful trip, it exceeded our expectations. You have done a wonderful job, congratulations to Real Russia! Dan and Jenna
