we try to support and develop sustainable tourism in Russia. We take accessibility as one of the indicators of sustainabilty, that is why it's important for us to design tours that suit different needs and interests. We would like to make traveling in Russia easy and comfortable for all people, including those with disabilities or limited abilities, who wish to see the country, meet locals and enjoy their time here. All the locations visited have been chosen for their accessibility and can be tailor made to your requirements.
Limited mobility:
We will provide accommodation on a ground floor or with lifts if it's more convenient for a person. The guide will be helping whenever the help is needed ( e.g. on the stairs in the metro). The pace of tours and the route will be adjusted.
In 2011 the Russian government launched a state program, called “Accessible Environment”. It’s aimed at making barrier-free infrastructures so that people in wheelchairs could get around streets and use social services.
We are going to provide accommodations with widened entrances. The museums and restaurants chosen are wheelchair- friendly. The Hermitage provides their own wheelchairs that were designed specially for the museum. In Moscow city center the metro doesn't have elevators, that's why we are going to transfer by car and buses. The metro though offers escort services via its "Mobility department" that assists groups of children and people with disabilities. The buses have lowered floors and ramps, and make traveling in city center easy. The car will be a bigger size when it's necessary.
As well, trains have folding ramps to accommodate the needs of wheelchair users, as well as special seats and toilet facilities. The new double-deck carriages are equipped with unique lifts, which are used to transport passengers in wheelchairs between the decks. We should note that it's better to have a travel companion who will be able to help from time to time.
Both cities have cobblestone pavements, e.g. near the Hermitage and on the Red Square), and curbs here and there, and are still on the way to become fully wheelchair friendly zones. Crossing the big streets is usually done via underpasses, which are equipped with ramps. These aren't perfect but we will be on hand to assist.
'Free from' food:
If guests have serious dietary issues or allergies, we will arrange translations into Russian to explain these, and will brief guides to ensure that appropriate food is served. Both Moscow and St Petersburg are modern cities where all possible cuisines are served. Vegetarian and vegan food is also possible to find. There are also places that serve gluten and lactose-free, and also halal food. Let your manager know beforehand about your diet, and they will make a list of cafes specially for you.
LGBT travelers are as welcome in Moscow and St Petersburg as any other travelers. However there are still certain stereotypes and prejudices among older generation and religious people. That's why we kindly ask you to be careful with public display of affection in the streets and public spaces and avoid walking alone at night. We are happy to provide a list of local LGBT+ community centers where you can find information about local events happening.


1 Reviews of Moscow to St Petersburg winter vacation

5 out of 5 stars

Reviewed on 30 Aug 2019 by

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?

Our individualized tour included very well-informed guides who were also kind and interesting. There were two of us on our tour of Kazan (where my relatives once in lived), Moscow and St. Petersburg. Both of us are semi-handicapped and each tour and transfer took into consideration our capabilities, needs, and as well as our interests. I would recommend this agency without qualifications.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?

Let the agency know about your interests, so they can design the kind of tour you will enjoy best. If you happen to have any physical disabilities, describe them in detail so the tour can be adjusted accordingly.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

In the case of our tour, there were no special impacts though everything was carried out in an environmentally sound manner.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?


Responsible Travel

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) vacation so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.

Planet and people

All our activities are run with respect to the environment, making sure that the volume of participants and type of tourism we offer doesn’t have any negative impact on local conditions and infrastructure.
Taking into consideration that sustainable development is still a new topic in Russia, we educate our partners and suppliers about environmental responsibility of their operations and we encourage them to improve sustainability of their practices. Our clients are also asked to act as role models and to give example to Russian communities on hoe to live in respect to the environment.
We give priority to public transport and optimise the itinerary to reduce the carbon footprint. From Moscow to St Petersburg tourists travel with a train. In the cities, we offer walking tours and we use public transportation (buses, metro) when needed.
We are keen on recycling, energy-saving solutions and minimising litter, water and atmospheric pollution both in our office and at any specific tourism activity we provide. We recycle waste produced at our office and bring it to special collection points.
We encourage our clients to limit waste produced on the tour by using reusable tea flasks, and reusable bags to collect litter.
