Responsible tourism

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we screen every trip so you can travel knowing your vacation will help support conservation and local people.

Environment
This tour travels by overnight train and by making use of local infrastructure we minimise our environmental impact on the area. When traveling within Moscow and St Petersburg we use the local metro which ensures we are not adding to road congestion and CO2 emissions caused by vehicles and also allows our travelers to get a feel for what it is like for locals living in these cities and really get a grounds-eye view of the culture and environment.

We have a full responsible travel policy available on our website and linked to pre departure information sent to passengers before they travel. This sets out our environmental policy including advice and best practices, including not littering, not defacing monuments and not taking souvenirs such as rocks or stones from protected sites.

The Impacts of this Trip

Through the tour leader, travelers are introduced to many local restaurants, encouraging patronage of these establishments over large franchise restaurants. This allows travelers the chance to sample local fare, cooked by Russians, and get a genuine cultural experience. We encourage our travelers to learn some words of the local language to help facilitate their travels and as a show of respect for locals. By staying in locally-owned hotels travelers have the opportunity to practice some of their language skills and meet some locals during their trip.

The tour leader will brief the group on local etiquette, such as clothing required and behaviour expected by visitors when visiting churches, tombs and other sacred places. Travelers are encouraged to learn about the culture and history of the area and are shown locations such as museums where this is possible, to gain better insight and international understanding between cultures.
