Russian Tsars knew how to live the good life and we want a taste of it too! Join us as we travel through Russia in search of the very best this vast and varied nation has to offer. With ample time to explore the glorious old cities of Moscow and St Petersburg both on our own and with a local guide to show us, we’ll indulge in the best culture, nights out and great experiences.
A land of 11 time zones and an epic history. Luckily, we have a local guide to start us off on the right foot. Anything called the Church of the Saviour on Spilled Blood has got to be worth a look (and it really is). You'll see it on today's driving tour (plus oh-so-many bucket list items). You won't be bored in St Petersburg, for sure.

Dig into breakfast with your pinkies raised. You're going on a guided tour of the Hermitage Museum that spans six palatial buildings, including the epic Winter Palace. Ah-maze! You won’t want to miss this. Next: (window) shopping, chowing and grooving your way down Nevsky Prospect, the capital's main street.
-Visit The State Hermitage Museum
Through the Russian countryside to the World Heritage-listed city Novgorod. Try: Medovukha, the Russian version of mead.

Roll into Moscow today, where the city is alive in rain, hail or shine. Believe it or not, Moscow sparkles so be prepared for an incredible few days ahead. As you move through the city, spot the tangible reminders of Russia’s involvement in modern history.
March through the greats on today's tour, including the Moscow University, Red Square and St Basil's Cathedral (aka the capital's technicolor sandcastle). Explore the Kremlin with our local guide before setting off to roam the streets. Tonight: get fancy with an optional evening at the Russian ballet. Binoculars at the ready and clink that champagne.

Down we go for a guided tour of the not-so-mundane Moscow Metro. If you are picturing the Piccadilly or Central Line in London, think again. Not even close. We’re talking chandelier-lined stations, each one more decadent than the last. Next: visit Lenin's tomb. Keep the history lesson going with an optional guided Kremlin Armory tour. The Russian capital's been known to set the stage for nights to remember. Home of vodka, remember?
