With the help of ExploRussia, our family (including two girls aged 9 & 12) was able to take the trip of a lifetime! As Americans, it’s a bit of a process to visit Russia. Ruslana and her team were quite helpful in suggesting ways to make the Visa and payment processes run smoothly. They also worked with us several months prior to our visit to plan an itinerary that would be to our liking, including attractions, shopping, family friendly hotels/guest houses and restaurants. And the entire family loved our trip - From the classical architecture, art, churches and shopping in St. Petersburg to the Soviet sites, extravagant Metro stations and ballet in Moscow…all the way to the countryside “Golden Ring” towns of Vladimir and Suzdal (with their beautiful onion domed churches and local artisans), we were immersed in Russian culture and traditions. Guides Anna, Olga and Alina (along with driver Sergey) were very patient with us (especially in restaurants!) as we navigated our way around and learned about Russian history and their personal histories as well. Favorite dining experiences included Russkaya Rybalka (aka Russian Fishing) on the outskirts of St. Petersburg, where we caught our own dinner; Café Pushkin (traditional Russian) and Hachapuri (Georgian cuisine) in Moscow. Highlights also included buying crafts from local artisans at a flea market on the outskirts of Moscow and in Suzdal. There’s no better way to see Russia than with ExploRussia!

When planning this trip to Russia months ago, I knew I wanted something different. ExploRussia helped to create the exact experience I was hoping for! Ruslana began the process by asking the right questions, providing suggestions, and working WITH me to create the experience on paper. It was Anna that brought it all to life. She's smart, fun, personable, a great listener, and has a near encyclopedic knowledge of Moscow. She opened our eyes and hearts to the people and culture of Russia. For this I'll be eternally grateful, and I can't wait to go back!
By all means do your homework on other guiding companies, after you're done you'll realize, like I did, that the ExploRussia team is the best!

This was my second visit to Moscow, but first time for my husband, so we decided to book a tour for the off beaten city. What an amazing choice, as we had an excellent day. Even for me which was my second time there, was a great new experience. Great city to explore with a great company. Thank you for showing us... everything!

Just returned from a wonderful visit to Moscow, which started with Anna taking us on great tour of the Metro system. She combined a great deal of knowledge of the history and facts surrounding this iconic system with being friendly and approachable. It made for a very fun tour.
Later during our visit, we met up with Olga for a chance to come over to her flat to try our hand at home-cooked borsch. Once again, she was very genuine and authentic, which made for great conversation in addition to the borsch. These conversations are the windows into another culture that make for great memories.

I don't know where to start ...
We met on a stormy winter girl in a pink coat. She took us on a fascinating tour of galleries and walls of graffiti,designers studio's and introduced us art scene of this amazing city.The area was once a wine factory and have a lot of fascinating spots and cozy restaurants.The guide was very professional and smart.We had a good time walking the streets of Moscow and secret spots that you'll never get there alone.
After all she left us a lot of recommendation for our next days, including the most trandy restaurants and interesting places to visit.
Highly recommended tour for those who interested to see real Moscow.
