Russian Walking Tours

Russian Architecture Tours tend to focus on the major new buildings in the city but some groups prefer a mix of old and news. We can also accommodate requests on our Russian walking tours, such as visits to specific buildings types eg interiors or housing, and trips to certain parts of the city rather than an overall visit.
