COVID-19 and the Russia Experience

For the time being, we’ve regrettably had to put up the shutters.

The Russia Experience is currently not open for business until September 1st 2020.

We sincerely hope that in the not too distant future we will, once again, be able to offer trips on the world’s greatest railway journey, when we’ll be delighted to help you plan a trip of a lifetime.  Meantime please feel free to browse our website, and if you’re interested in talking to us once the current situation passes, please email and one of our experts will be in touch when we re-open.

In the meantime, stay well, stay positive and look after yourselves and each other.

If you are travelling in September 2020 or beyond and require assistance please email
