Customizable Golden Ring Tour

5 reviews
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.<br><br>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!<br><br>My car is a Subaru Outback in great condition, perfectly comfortable for 3 passengers but can accommodate 4 (with less comfort, obviously).

We saw this lovely city on our conducted tour around the Golden Ring, and we were here for one night and half a day. In my opinion, the BEST thing, by far, in Yaroslavl was the riverside walk along the Volga River. One of the best riverbank walks I have experienced, anywhere in the world. The river looks great, and there are some very interesting churches on the walk, apart from some other beautiful buildings. Very very photogenic. Even in bad weather! If it is a nice sunny day, you could not ask for more! Remember, this city is over a thousand years old, our guide regaled us with plenty of stories of the past. It is the biggest city between Moscow and the Arctic.

I like this place. Been visiting Yaroslavl' numerous times during last forty years and always try to come here. Not a lot has changed around - same stunning views on the Volga river, same charming trademark pavillion, same gorgeous trees and same sidewalks in need of repair, scarce kiosks with souvenirs and almost total lack of places to sit down and have a cup of tea or coffee. This time one of us stepped onto a pile of dung left by some enormous dog (hopefully not a man). Dear residents of Yroslavl', please clean up after your pets - their poo's stench is remarkable! Thanks God that day was rainy and there were many pools around. (But still - he reeked all hell for quite some time.)

One of the most important Russian little charming cities , the capital of Golden ring, I recommend to stay in this city at least for 2 days , as it’s so nice to study about Russian history ( city is more 1000 years old!!!! ) and you can see this city on the Russian note ( guess which one ) Really impressed

An interesting place to walk on a Sunday afternoon to watch the families out for walks. This is a cruise boat stop and you can easily leave the boat and follow the embankment path past colorful historic buildings and into the parks. A further walk takes you into downtown. Wear good walking shoes though.
