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).

I was in Yaroslavl' dozens of times but this first visit to its Art museum was a pleasant surprise. Nestling on the Volga river embankment among old lime trees this small XIX century mansion boasts excellent collection of Russian artists of the time. Ivan Aivazovsky, Vladimir Makovsky, Karl Bryullov, Ilya Repin, Viktor Vasnetsov, Vasily Perov, Arkhip Kuindzhi - these names may not say much to a foreigner but every Russian knows them. Anyhow, in case you're not that fond of the stuff take a look at icons collection. All in all, every visitor will find something to admire in this cozy and perfectly maintained building. There's also a charming garden behind where you may stroll for an additional fee. Very nice. Recommended.

Small enough not to be overwhelming with a collection large enough to inspire. It is a beautiful selection of works in a stunning building.

From the moment you arrive, you step back in time. The young women docents are dressed in lovely period dresses. The furnishings and art in the museum are beautiful. As an added attraction, you are treated to a musical performance, first by a trio of piano, cello and violin and later a minuet danced by two young couples in period costumes. You are seated in chairs around the ballroom and the dancers (one man and one woman) come to the tourists and pick one to dance with them It is a fun way to end the tour.

The costumed guides could have been "touristy" but I found that they helped to tell the story of the Governor's House. The building is beautifully preserved and the furnishings and art work are a must see. The gardens look amazing and I recommend allowing time to see them.

Based in the old Governor's House, this is more than an Art Gallery. While there are indeed many paintings, you are guided through the building by guides dressed as the Governors Daughter in period costume. They take you through the history of the House, showcasing the furniture and paintings as you go from room to room and include a musical performance with dancing (and the chance to participate too if you are keen). there is no chance to wander through on your own, but perhaps you get a better understanding of the history of the building, from a charming guide with impeccable English.
