Russia Tours & Holidays

Lavish palaces. Sprawling cities. Cross-continental train journeys. Explore the Land of the Tsars with On The Go Tours

A tumultuous history of kings, queens and communism. With many secrets just waiting to be uncovered. It's the central Red Square of Moscow. It's the famous Nevsky Prospekt in St Petersburg. It's the hidden delight of the Golden Ring. And it's the thundering Trans-Siberian Railway.

Our Russia holidays get you to the very middle of the action. To Lenin's Mausoleum. To the Kremlin. To the Russian ballet.

But don't just take our word for it. Our Russia tours have won British Travel Awards. Meaning you can forget about the hassle, and just enjoy the ride.

Escape to Russia this winter
Spend the Festive Season in Moscow and St Petersburg

St Petersburg
