Small group land tour to Russia

We have a small group of friends who want to tour St Petersburg, Moscow, Helsinki, and Tallinn in a land tour. We are not on a cruise. Can you recommend a tour company who will host a land Russia tour and take care of the Visa?

Thanks!

I can recommend the company Palladium Travel, which will certainly be able to arrange the tours and provide visa support.

Hello. Check the list of the tour companies recommended by Tripadvisor tripadvisor.com/Attractions-g298507-Activiti… Yes, some of them are mostly engaged in tour service for cruise passengers but others will be glad to organize a land tour. Send a message to several of them and you will have chance to chose.

Good Luck!

Whichever tour company you choose, make sure it takes you through the town of Kiji in Karelia.

Booked with Alltravelrussia for a trip this June. They take care of the visa to get into Russia and the invitation visa once inside the country from the hotels. So far the booking experience has been great. Will do a trip report when we get back.

We did Finland - Russia

They booked the hotel in Helsinki and minibus to the hotel and then from the hotel to the station and the train ticket to take us from HEL-SPB. Helsinki could be easily toured on our own with all day pass that also has a bus tour of the city and ferry to the island fort. Everyone speaks English.

They had guided tours for us for all the time we were in Russia - 9 days I think. That is where we felt the need the most. Very very good guide in SPB called Mikael.

We did not do Tallin.

Visa is a long process but did come through in time from the Washington Russian embassy.
