The Heart of Moscow
Check out the Red Square, with the historic Kremlin and the patterned domes of St. Basil’s Cathedral throwing a kaleidoscope of colour into the skyline.
With the golden domes of Aleksander Nevski Cathedral at its heart, Sofia enchants with its impressive architecture and a collection of pleasant gardens and parks.

What our clients are saying about touring through Eastern Europe & Russia
“Easy paced Russia”
As with all Insight's holidays that we have been on, this one was well organised and the Tour Director very professional and knowledgeable about the country. The itinerary would have been too "bare" without the optional extras, with too much free time. We did all the optional extras, which then made it too busy, with little time for toilet and meal breaks.
“Delights and discoveries of Croatia and Slovenia”
From the very beginning to the end it was a dream come true. The azure blue of the seas to the lush green of the countrysides appealed to us. There was also history and culture among that! Can't expect more than that on a holiday. We were also lucky to have a very friendly and caring tour director - Tod Covich.
“A very good trip”
This was a very good tour. The tour director and local experts were extremely knowledgeable and helpful. The hotels were all of very good European four star standard. The Russian part was very full with all the optional activities. The Baltic part a little more relaxed. While St Petersburg was the highlight (and the main reason we went), the Baltic capitals were real surprises and very interesting and attractive. One suggestion: if you are doing the tour, spend a couple of days in Helsinki before ...read more or after as the time there is very inadequate. Disappointments? The ballet performance in St Petersburg was overall pretty ordinary. There were maybe a few too many optional activities. A couple at least might have been included for the price. Booking through Global Journeys was seamless and excellent value.
“Interesting tour ”
Very interesting to hear all about the past and recent history in this region. All the local guides were very interesting and informative except for the one in Montenegro who was below par. This is a fast paced tour with some early morning starts. The scenery was wonderful in Croatia. The hotels although good were outside of the main city so if this is a problem then you would be better off with the higher priced Trafalgar tour. I mainly did this tour as it went to Medjorgje and many of the others ...read more don’t. The tour guide Jasmina and driver Dramir were both excellent.
