Our Trips

Beetroot Express

Moscow to St. Petersburg


Give us a week, we’ll show you Russia!

This  itinerary is packed with the very best Russia can offer, the things you really want to see and do... you won’t miss a thing . However its differs from our usual style with the Trans-Siberian trips and here we are in small groups.  No compulsory activities, lots of free time (with suggestions!), make your own lunch and supper choices (more suggestions!), pay for attraction admissions locally, extend your stay at either end of your trip (please advise prior to departure.)
