When it comes to praising Explorussia, I'm not quite sure where to begin! Incredible, faultless, exceptional, wholeheartedly recommend – just a few words that come to mind! I wanted to plan a winter Trans-Siberian adventure for my husband's 40th birthday, I'm so pleased I chose Explorussia. During the planning stages they were so helpful, extremely quick to reply (which I appreciated) and answered all of my questions and concerns. They put together a wonderful sounding trip with the perfect mix of adventure tours, city tours and activities. The trip was for 2 weeks from Moscow to Lake Baikal on the Trans-Siberian Express, stopping in Kazan and Yekaterinburg. Sadly due to COVID our trip had to be postponed, but I knew it would absolutely be worth the wait, and we were lucky enough to squeeze our trip in this February 2022! Anna at Explorussia made sure that everything was in place for us, and we were thoroughly looked after at each stage of our trip. Every guide we met spoke great English, was friendly, open to discussion and extremely knowledgeable about their homeland. Each guide ended up feeling like a friend, and we got to share some incredible experiences in Russia that you'd only get to experience with a local. Anna made sure that the guides knew about my dietary requirements, and we were always met from the train (right outside our carriage in fact!), taken to our hotels and met in our hotel lobby for tours – she made everything so unbelievably effortless that enjoying Russia really was the only thing we needed to focus on! Having travelled extensively around the world, we can confidently say that the service we received from Explorussia was exemplary. Anna checked in with us nearly every day, just to be sure we were happy and answer any questions we might have (even when we were on a completely different time zone to her!). Sadly the war between Ukraine and Russia started while we were out there, but Anna again was checking that we were still happy to proceed with our trip, and even when we were struggling to find a route to fly home back to the UK she was on-hand to help in anyway she could (doing flight searches and even booking us a taxi on her account to transfer us to another airport). If you're contemplating using a travel agency to help with your trip to Russia – look no further. Anna and her team at Explorussia will put together a trip of a lifetime, pulling on their personal knowledge of the incredible cities in Russia, and taking all the stress out of travelling in a foreign country. We'd love to return to Russia and wouldn't consider using any other company than Explorussia – Anna thank you so much.

Our guide was Tanya. The tour was great - especially since it was just the two of us in the group! Tanya is very knowledgeable and is open to sharing both history and her personal experiences. I grew up here and yet learned so many new things!

I made a wise decision to let a local show me where, what and how a true Russian purchases food. Tanya is a true professional, pleasant, and open-minded tour guide. We visited the market, she told me about the history of the market and showed me how diverse the food you can find in this place is. Sometimes the food in the market is better than what you can find at a large mall. The whole event was stomach/mind satisfaction after Tanya's introduction. 5 out of 5 stars.
