Depart from your Moscow hotel in a luxury minibus destined for the enchanting collection of villages known as the Golden Ring. During the drive, receive an insightful introduction to the Russian region from your guide; hear tales of power, wealth and opulence before arriving at your first stop, the historical town of Vladimir. 

On a guided walking tour, delve into the town’s rich history as you visit impressive monuments like the Assumption Cathedral, home to treasures like Rublyov’s The Last Judgement frescoes. Stroll over to the equally enchanting Cathedral of St Dmitry to admire the incredible stone carvings on its exterior walls, and then enjoy some relaxed free time before returning to your coach.

The guide speaks good English and is friendly. She even took us to a local restaurant for us to try out the local speciality foods and drinks.

Suzdal and Vladimir are a long drive from Moscow but the scenic route made us forget about the distance! The towns important from religious and political perspective are blessed with natural beauty and a charm which is heightened by the strikingly colourful onion domes - the highlight of the Byzantine architecture. Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable. She made sure we had an eventful day.


2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better June 2014

Too many hours to see almost nothing, medieval town as promised hard to envision

Sergey, our guide, did a fabulous job and it was a perfect addition to seeing Moscow and St. Petersburg to go back further in history to the 12th century!
