Your acquaintance will start from Vorobyovy Gory – a large park constructed on a slope in a bend along the banks of the Moskva River, with a territory of 137.5 hectares. It is known for its amazing nature and magnificent views that open from the look point. Your sightseeing tour will proceed to such important attractions as the triumphal arch, the Cathedral of Christ the Savior and the Kutuzowski Prospect.

Red Square is home to a huge number of unique attractions starting from monuments, museums, temples and cathedrals, ending with other popular historical, architectural, cultural and religious tourist sites.

Privet Sati, we are back to London and can’t help but remember the beautiful days we spent in Russia. Thank you for all your arrangements, you were truly a treasure to find! We enjoyed every day of our trip and couldn’t get enough of the emotions that our guide Anna gave us during the trip. Please share our gratitude and appreciation to her once again, she was such a knowledgeable and great person.

It was my long-time wish to visit Moscow and especially Saint Petersburg. Arara helped me with the arrangements of this beautiful private trip. My husband and I enjoyed the itinerary entirely and wished to stay longer. Saint Petersburg is an amazing city and everyone traveling in this region should visit it. Petergof was an astounding place, till this day I always look at the pictures we have taken there and I am still in awe. We are very glad to find Arara tour for our trip as they provided exceptional services. Our travel agent Tatev was very helpful and gave us all the necessary information we needed. Our guide Ivan was an amazing person. He knew everything about his country and we couldn’t stop learning more about Russia and its ancient history. We are really happy how the trip turned out and strongly recommend Arara tour for this trip!
