Editor’s Take

What to Look for in Russia Tour Reviews

Most trip reviews tend to focus on some or all of these 5 key areas, not all of which may be relevant to you: the tour guide, travel company, service level, country or countries traveled in, and the trip itinerary.

Remember, just because you see a 1 star review doesn’t necessarily mean that person disliked the country.

Russia tour reviews are overwhelmingly positive, with an average rating of 4.5/5 stars and a 93% recommendation rate. Value, guide, activities, lodging, transportation, and meals categories are all rated at a consistent 4.5/5 stars.

Many travelers rave about the itineraries offered for the top tourist destinations (Saint Petersburg and Moscow). The authenticity of the tours and exposure to the culture are also commended. Other positive aspects mentioned in reviews are the level of experience of guides and the expert planning behind excursions. While most find the fast-paced, packed itineraries positive, some travelers find the pacing to be a little too rushed. These travelers tend to rate these trips 4/5 stars instead of 5/5.

Reviews on the more negative end of the spectrum focus heavily on the disappointment in “optional activities” that are not included in the base price of the tour. Although these optional excursions are a common practice with many tour companies, they can be confusing and frustrating if you are not expecting them. Other focuses of lower rated tours mention hotel proximity to tourist sights and the effective use of free time offered. Overall, the majority of reviews mention positive experiences and aspects of Russia tours.
