With so many iconic locations and amazing sites to see within Russia and its neighbouring countries, it can be difficult to know where to start. To help ensure that not one moment is wasted, we’ve specially selected a range of incredible excursions with you in mind. Our excursions are designed to aid you in experiencing all that Russia and its neighbouring countries has to offer, turning your travels into a journey, your journey into an experience, and your experience into a treasured memory.
Whether you want an individual guided tour of the Mighty Moscow, to feel Russian at a folk show in Saint Petersburg, to experience life as an emperor in Beijing’s Forbidden City, or to step into the lives of the nomads in Ulan Bator, our local expert guides have what it takes to get you to the heart of all the action.
In order to truly gain an appreciation for this incredible city, its people and its culture, you should take a step back from the bustle of the fast moving city and see life through the eyes and minds of a local family. While being served a hearty home cooked feast packed with traditional dishes such as borsch and pelmeni, you’ll have the opportunity to engage in conversations and discuss Russian life, culture and traditions.
Real Russia was extremely helpful and responsive, our guides in Moscow were excellent, and all services were on time.Bob
As you enter the lobby of the regal Nikolaevsky Palace, you will be guided up the majestic gala stairways leading you to the entranceway of the grandeur concert hall. Before the performance commences, you are transported through time hearing the mesmerising sound of the folklore melodies performed on a string quartet. In an evening to remember, become mesmerised as you see folk music and dance come alive in an unforgettable performance.
We had a brilliant trip and can't wait to go back to Russia again some time. Will certainly use RR again and recommend you to anyone thinking of travelling there.Tim
On this incredible expedition, your tour guide leads you to the serene village of Sukhaya, to the regal shores of the sacred sea 125 km from Ulan-Ude. Treasured by its locals as a tranquil haven, your excursion begins with a visit to one of Lake Baikal’s myriad mineral springs, situated near one of the lake’s breath-taking bays.
A couple of friends and I planned a trip through Russia thinking we could plan everything on our own. That, it turns out, is not really feasible. Real Russia made the process easy and actually saved us hundreds of dollars.kim
This is a unique chance to become part of a nomadic family for a couple of days as you are taken from the city to a family in the countryside where you’ll stay with them in their own ger. You’ll get to experience the everyday life of the nomads, learning about what they do and their culture as well as trying their homemade dairy products and food.
Our trip was lovely, no hiccups, no problems, everything went according to plan. Our guide was absolutely charming, and we have benefitted greatly from her vast knowledge of the Mongolian history and culture.Zofia
One of the greatest wonders of the world, the Great Wall expands from the east to the west of China. The longest wall in the entire world is a breath-taking conquest in ancient defence fortification, and its architectural magnificence will leave you awe-struck, while intrigued by its historical significance.
Well-organised, effective, efficient and considerate! Real Russia has made my dream of travelling along the ancient Silk Road from central Asia back to China, I have had a fantastic trip from Tashkent via Almaty back to Urumqi.Guo
