Tours to Russia taken on a private basis are an ideal way to see the things that you want to see, at your own pace, and on your own time schedule and budget.
Cox & Kings offer a number of private Russia tours. Itineraries range from 3- or 4-night city breaks, to longer 7-night trips visiting several cities, 10-night cruises aboard the exclusive and luxurious Volga Dream and epic 14-night rail journeys on the famous Trans-Siberian railway from Moscow to Vladivostok.
The itineraries are just suggestions, so feel free to revise these to better suit your requirements, or use them as inspiration for an entirely tailor-made trip. Just call a Cox & Kings tour consultant and they will be happy to discuss it with you.

We have highlighted the standard of accommodation featured on a tour immediately above the tour itinerary.
In some cases, tours include some departures in one category and some in another: you can see and select the different tour types under ‘tour variations’. For these tours, the itinerary is generally the same and just the standard of accommodation varies. However, if there are any variations in the excursions included, these are shown within the itinerary.
Superior: Most Cox & Kings tours fall under this category and are based in 4- or 5-star accommodation, or the best available.
Luxury: These tours will usually feature 5-star de luxe accommodation throughout.
Standard: Simpler in emphasis, these itineraries typically feature 3- and 4-star accommodation throughout.
Discovery: This type of holiday is best suited to the hardier traveller, as it will typically include some quite basic accommodation, possibly longer and rougher road journeys and, in some cases, more arduous activities, such as trekking.
