Contiki tour in Russia, anyone been or have opinions?

Jump to last reply

Hello! My husband and I have some time off this August (2015) and were looking into different travel options. My family background is Russian (I don't speak the language unfortunately) and I've always wanted to go.

We were thinking of going to Russia (Moscow, St. Petersburg, Novogorad) as well as Belarus on a Contiki Tour (contiki.com/destinations/…622-best-of-russia) rather than go on our own. I have never used Contiki before but I have close friends who have and loved it. I have read mixed reviews online about them as a tour company, but not specifically for the Russia trip.

I've traveled all over Europe on my own but I was thinking for a place like Russia where we don't speak the language (we're both American) and I heard it can be a little bit dodgy (please correct me if that's not true) it might be safer and less stress to do a tour.

Has anyone taken this tour? Even if you haven't any thoughts or advice on traveling to Russia or on Contiki tours would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
