4.5 24 Reviews | Add your review

Northeast of Moscow, the picturesque towns of the Golden Ring trace their histories to the early days of the Russian Orthodox Church. Whether you have a day or more to explore their beautiful kremlins, ancient monasteries, and onion-domed churches, here are your options.

Full-Day Tours
Make the most of your time by taking a full-day private tour to the UNESCO World Heritage Sites of Vladimir and Suzdal, two of the most charming towns in the Golden Ring. Alternatively, spend the day with a private tour guide in Sergiev Posad, visiting the famous Trinity Lavra Monastery and stopping at the 19th-century Abramtsevo Estate on your way back to Moscow.

Multi-Day Tours
Take a deep dive into Russian history and Russian culture by taking a multi-day tour that includes stops in up to seven ancient towns in the Golden Ring. Enjoy city tours of areas such as Vladimir, Suzdal, Kostroma, Yaroslavl, Rostov-Veliky, Pereyaslavl-Zalessky, and Sergiev Posad, and enjoy overnight stays in some of these fascinating cities. With a pre-booked guided tour, you won’t have to worry about the hassle of transportation or planning this extended trip.

Things to Know
  • Both full-day and multi-day tours depart from and return to centrally located Moscow hotels.
  • Sergiev Posad is just over an hour's drive from Moscow, Vladimir is a 3-hour drive, and Suzdal is 3.5 hours away by road.
  • Tours typically include the opportunity to try traditional Russian cuisine, usually at your own expense.
  • Full-day trips generally last nine to 14 hours.
