Explore, Discover, Experience a range of options to suit your need, interest and budget

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 Do you like to plan your adventures yourself, but want the admin done for you? With support from our travel experts who book your rail tickets, transfers from arrival to final departure and trusted 2* and 3* hotels or homestays, you are free to explore what and when you want!
Discover Range Enjoy the comfort of a carefully planned itinerary along with the flexibility to discover at your own pace. With quality 3* and 4* accommodation, transfers to and from the train stations and a selection of half day excursions with professional local guides, there is still plenty of free time for further exploration on your own.
Experience Range Our premium range of tours takes care of all travel arrangements from the moment you arrive, including train reservations, quality transfers, full day excursions accompanied by a professional local guide and the finest 4* hotels, so that you can relax and immerse yourself into a complete travel experience.

Customise 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!
