What to Know About Senior Tours to Russia


Thinking of how to put together an ideal senior travel package around Russia? We, like nobody else, understand how many things and factors should be taken into consideration in order to avoid unpleasant surprises during the journey. On this page, we've prepared a list of useful travel tips for seniors who are planning an upcoming Russia tour and shared the best examples of suitable programs.


When thinking of a trip abroad, the first thing you should keep in mind beforehand is whether you do or do not need a visa to enter the chosen county. Speaking about Russian visas, the US or Australian travelers are obliged to obtain a visa in advance to travel around the country freely. Of course, applying for a visa can become a bit discouraging moment in your trip planning as you face the necessity to get an official Russian visa invitation, fill out application forms, and collect a bunch of other documents. Futile worries and a waste of time!

However, we would like you to breathe a sigh of relief as we take care of the whole Russian visa processing for you ourselves, so you can relax and focus on the other aspects of preparation. The only important point you should remember is that the ideal time to start the whole procedure is at least 2-3 months before the actual departure date in order not to miss any deadlines.



Nevertheless, life is life, and accidents may happen. If you have postponed your Russian visa application till the last minute, it doesn't mean you have to give up the idea of visiting Russia in the nearest future! The good news is that since October 1st, 2019 citizens of 53 countries, including the European Union, have the chance to visit stunning St. Petersburg with a Free E-Visa, issued for a 1-week stay. All you have to do is to fill out simple online forms (we advise to do that no later than 30 days before the departure) and pack your bags for a saturated vacation to Russia's majestic Northern Capital read more tips for e-visas to St. Petersburg.



Once you've chosen Russia as your future travel destination, it is a good idea to make up your mind on what type of senior travel you are interested in. Opting for private tours to Russia organized by Tours to Europe means that you can take advantage of a fully-customizable best senior travel tour as it can be tailored to your personal needs and preferences. Traveling as a part of a small group Russia tour, you join a group of 4 to 14 co-travelers which is a nice opportunity to make new friends while exploring the gems of inimitable Russia.

Whichever type of senior escorted tours you select, you will enjoy a safe worry-free journey as our tours are put together by professional travel experts. Thus, you'll take advantage of private transfers from/to the airport, stay at the best downtown 4 and 5-star hotels with included breakfasts, be accompanied by experienced English-speaking guides and shown around the most famous Russian landmarks (the majority of which will be with skip-the-line passes)!

Plus, the ideal combination of sightseeing and free time is a key concept of itineraries. You shouldn't be worried that your itinerary will be overjammed with tiring long hours of walking tours or that you won't have enough leisure time to enjoy the cities and see the things you'd like.



One of the core components of every tour is transportation. When looking for senior travel tours, the last thing you would probably be in favor of is huge touristic buses. As travel experts with years of experience, we can assure you that exploring Russia as part of a bus tour is not the type of inspiring experience you expect to obtain.

Moving around the cities is conducted by private transportation - passenger cars or mobile minivans, depending on the program type, while for intercity trips we book tickets for modern and comfortable Russian trains (like the high-speed Sapsan train between Moscow and St. Petersburg) to provide high comfort and impeccable service for our travelers.
