Overview
A fully customizable and budget-friendly tour of the Golden Ring. Visit the destinations of your choice and draw up your own itinerary. It can be just a day trip to Sergiev Posad, Rostov Veliky, Pereslavl-Zalessky or a multi-day journey to Vladimir and Suzdal, Yaroslavl and all the way to Kostroma. Or maybe you'd love to see one of the lesser touristy places like Yuriev-Polsky and Alexandrov, Kolomna or Borovsk? It's up to you! Just pick the desired option. Since I'm not a licensed travel guide, I will rather be your driver and travel companion during sightseeing providing all the necessary assistance whenever you need it. No boring history lectures or tight schedules, explore everything at your own pace! My car is a Subaru Outback in great condition, perfectly comfortable for 3 passengers but can accommodate 4 (with less comfort, obviously).
