Real Russia Win Again!

Real Russia recently attended the annual Oak FM Pride of Loughborough Awards and was delighted to be voted Business of the Year.

2013 has been a fantastic year for Real Russia, following on from the success of winning Russia’s Leading Travel Agency 2013 at the World Travel Awards, the whole team was thrilled with this latest achievement.

Chris Watkins, Real Russia’s Managing Director, explained “Starting the company in the front room of my family home, we have grown from strength to strength over the last 10 years. Today our understanding of travel within Russia is second to none, a reflection of just how hard our dedicated employees work towards making the customer experience priority number one. To be recognised by the judges is a great honour, as I was born and raised in Loughborough the award is also a huge personal achievement.”

Putting Loughborough on the global business map, the company now has five offices across Europe, including UK and Russia, and over 50 members of staff. From the head office in Loughborough, Real Russia offers comprehensive knowledge and assistance to both tourists and business travellers alike. This understanding and expertise has grown from Chris’s original passion for the country, which is portrayed in the culture of Real Russia and its staff today.

Real Russia's dedicated staff deliver complete support while planning unique itineraries or excursions, booking accommodation, train tickets and rail tours across Russia, arranging local Russian guides and transfers and also managing individual visa applications directly with consulates.
