Travel Service Providers in the CIS
directory of independent companies
The following travel service providers are independent of SRAS and we list them here only for your information. If you are interested in their services, please contact them directly via information listed on their sites.
If you are interested in a more complex tour - particularly of the "adventure" variety, it can often be more cost-effective to join an organized tour. This is also helpful if you do not speak Russian! We have listed below companies regularly (not once or occasionally) organizing group tours to Russia. We welcome suggestions from our readers about other tour companies fitting this description.
