We are very happy to have served thousands of happy customers who travelled with us.
I am very happy with the services of the company and i would like to repeat the experience in the future! Thank you for information, support, kindness, readiness and communication!
Thank you and GoRussia so much for making our trip as full and enjoyable as possible given the developing Coronavirus situation. Everything was perfect in Moscow but once we got to St. Petersburg the situation started changing rapidly. Natasha was very helpful and knowledgeable - helping us to make the most of our time in the city even though museums were unfortunately mostly shut. The hotels and guides were perfect in both cities, we especially enjoyed the snow in Moscow, which we understand has been in short supply this year!
