I received faultless service from Go Russia in the organization of my trip. My visa was arranged effortlessly (or so it seemed from my end) and my travel plans all ran smoothly. Go Russia not only offers prompt and efficient service, and genuine expertise, but also has the courage to offer trips to remote and fascinating parts of Russia that other tour operators don't reach.

My short trip to Moscow with Go Russia provided the ultimate snap shot of the epicenter of the new Russia. Go Russia’s slick itinerary included the perfect mix of sight-seeing, entertainment, spot of shopping and relaxation. As a group of first timers we took in all the key sites accompanied by our knowledgeable guide Anna who was a Muscovite herself which really helped; including the Kremlin, Red Square and Novodovichy Convent as well as optional extras such as the Vodka museum and Izmaylovo market –and it was extremely useful having Anna with us to help haggle as well as sharing her excellent knowledge. Travelling Moscow’s glorious underground network – (an experience in itself not to be overlooked) we also visited some magnificent view points, and enjoyed culinary treats such as borsch soup, Kvass and warm honey beer. There was also plenty of free-time for a little personal exploration.

I would recommend Moscow as the ultimate city break and Go Russia have the perfect itinerary in which to enjoy this. Go Russia took care of everything from start to finish, even arranging for my visa to be hand delivered within three days leaving me to relax and enjoy. Moscow is unlike any other European city break I have been on and Go Russia are very well connected which helped make the trip run smoothly, and they are also very good at revealing the hidden gems you would never find without them. “

One of the real advantages of Go Russia was having a tour guide from Moscow who was able to recommend things to do when you had free time as well as good bars and restaurants. The visa service is also brilliant as it takes the stress out of holiday planning.
