A five- or seven-night sojourn to fascinating Russia, with Moscow and St. Petersburg stays, city tours and flights

Russia is the world's largest country and, as such, its cities offer a unique destination, whether you're after a culture-fuelled excursion or a laid back city break. Either way, you'll no doubt end up marvelling at Russia's artistic spoils throughout the day, before sipping vodka late into the night. Get to know what makes Russia tick, with a five- or seven-night trip split between two of its largest cities - Moscow and St. Petersburg.

You'll start with three or four nights in Moscow, staying at the well-located Katerina City Hotel. An included 'Urban Adventures' tour takes in the historic stations of Moscow's Metro, exploring a curious side to the city that reveals the realities of Soviet life. Your knowledgeable guide will share their personal stories about the USSR times, giving you an interesting insight into Russia's complicated past and present. Back up at street level, you'll also get to taste traditional Russian fast food, with lunch over pies and tea.

Next, you'll travel by rail to St. Petersburg, where you'll check in to the Solo Soko Hotel Vasilevsky. Located on one of the city's islands, you're moments from St. Petersburg's cultural scene in an area synonymous with up-and-coming talent, be it art, music, dance or design. Whilst here, you'll head out on a tour of the city, starting in Palace Square before moving on to the Split of St Basil Island to enjoy the views, and the Peter and Paul Fortress - the oldest structure in St. Petersburg, and the site where the town was started back in 1703.

Service rating : The experience was excellent. The guides were very informative and they knew their history,

The hotels were an excellent choice and all staff were very helpful and polite.

The only bad experience was being taken to shops/workshops where we were shown items of jewellery, clothing or shown how traditional works are done and (although not expected or pressurised) felt that the vendor tried to sell the items to us when we did not wish to purchase any of them. I did not pay to be taken to these places and did feel very uncomfortable when the patrons told us that we would only need to pay (an amount) and they would ship this direct to our house, no hassle!!! we did tell the last guide that we did not want to go to any of these shops/workshops.
Product : excellent value for money

Viva holidays were very helpful however there was no transfers included in the package. Which left us to sort it out ourselves plus the hotels were very far from the city centre.
Their customer service was really good.
