Itinerary

Day One

Fly to Moscow, and upon arrival meet your Tour Manager and transfer by coach to your hotel base for the next three nights. Rest and relax after the journey, and enjoy your first evening in the city.

Day Two

This morning's three-hour included guided coach tour will introduce you to this extraordinary place, and serve to orientate you. The tour will include the fabled Kremlin and adjacent Red Square, where multi-coloured, onion-domed St Basil's Cathedral, Lenin's eerie Mausoleum and the former GUM State Department Store, now a glittering shopping mall, look out over the vast space. Other highlights of the tour might include Revolution Square, the newly rebuilt Cathedral of Christ the Saviour (one of the city's most striking landmarks), the Bolshoi Theatre and the infamous Lubyanka, former KGB headquarters.

This afternoon, an optional guided walking tour will reveal some of the secrets of the Kremlin, as you pass through the turreted walls and enter a truly fascinating enclave of imposing buildings like the Senate House and the Presidium, the vast State Kremlin Palace concert hall, beautiful squares and breathtaking churches and palaces. Sobornaya Square is home to the trio of cathedrals and the magnificent Ivan the Great Belltower, the Kremlin's tallest structure.

This evening you can choose to round off a wonderful day by enjoying dinner in the city.

Day Three

A further day to enjoy the city. Some will head off to explore under their own steam; many, however, will enjoy a full-day optional 'Highlights of Moscow' tour, taking in Victory Park, where the Museum of the Great Patriotic War commemorates the Soviet Union's incalculable sacrifices in World War Two. Enjoy a visit to one of Moscow's landmark Metro stations - vast repositories of priceless art and artefacts - and to the Kremlin's Armoury Palace. Enjoy free time for shopping, and the chance of dinner and a final evening in Moscow.

Day Four

Transfer to Leningrad Station, bid "do svidanya" to your Moscow guide and board the train to St Petersburg, arriving later today. On arrival at St Petersburg's Station, meet your Tour Manager and transfer to your hotel for three nights.

Day Five

After breakfast enjoy a fascinating orientation and introductory tour of the 'Venice of the North', which in fact, but for its canals and innumerable bridges, is more Paris or Madrid, given the grand sweep of its squares and the opulence of its great palaces and civic buildings. Founded by Peter the Great as a westward-looking bastion, and grown under the stewardship of his daughter Elizabeth and legendary empress Catherine the Great, St Petersburg is a match for the finest of all European cities.

Palace Square, towered over by the Alexander Column, is also home to the fabled Winter Palace of the Tsars, a Baroque masterpiece that houses part of the extraordinary Hermitage Museum. The exquisite Admiralty building is crowned by a gilded spire and topped in turn by a weather vane in the shape of a frigate, the city's most enduring symbol. Close by, majestic St Isaac's Cathedral dominates the skyline, while elsewhere, other highlights might include the Mariinsky Palace - home of the Kirov Ballet, the onion-domed Church of Our Saviour on Spilled Blood, and wondrous Smolny Cathedral. Across the Neva River lies the Peter and Paul Fortress, where the city began, and Peter and Paul Cathedral, burial place of the Romanov Tsars.

This afternoon, however, you'll step inside the gilded portals of the fabled Hermitage museum, to enjoy a guided tour of some of its phenomenal collection.

Please note: The entrance fees to the buildings are not included in the morning. Entrance to the Hermitage museum is included.

Day Six

Join today's optional excursion to the Imperial Palace at Pushkin and stunning gardens at Peterhof, both lovingly reconstructed since World War Two, and reflecting the grandeur of Imperial Court life, under Catherine the Great and the Romanovs. Entrance is included to the palace, and a visit is made to Peterhof's garden.

This evening join the optional evening excursion to the famous folklore show at the historic Nikolaevskiy Palace, to immerse yourself in the traditions of Cossack dancing and folk songs.

Day Seven

A last optional excursion includes entrances to, and a guided tour of, the Peter and Paul Fortress, and a visit to the sumptuous, intimate Yusupov Palace, perhaps the city's finest Imperial residence, scene of the murder of legendary 'monk' Rasputin.

This afternoon, transfer to the airport for the return flight to the UK.

We had a great time with one notable exception.
Newmarket changed the hotel in St. Petersburg to the Park Lane Resort and Spa from the original.
The Park Lane is a new hotel and it is still suffering teething problems and some functionality (such as the very much needed air conditioning) is yet to be commissioned. There is a fair amount of adverse comment on TripAdvisor regarding this hotel (much about lack of eating) and we can confirm that eating locally is extremely limited. The hotel restaurant is now open but we chose to go downtown using the Metro.
The lack of AC was more than a minor irritant as the windows on our floor wouldn't open more than a few centimetres and the room was far too hot.
The hotel confirmed changing rooms would make no difference as the hotel had been designed around AC and windows were restricted for 'security'.
Teething problems were just minor irritants around the lifts not working, door lock releases in the public areas not working, and scheduling large numbers of bus groups to turn up for breakfast at the same time resulting in lack of table space, unfilled buffet bowls and overworked (newly-trained) staff.
Providing you don't mind taking the Metro at night, the hotel is just three stops from good eateries but if you don't want to use the Metro your eating options are the hotel and a couple of restaurants that are a good walk away.
It will be a good hotel once they sort out the issues.

Excellent value with great organisation. Even the weather was great. We thought that the two cities were wonderful.

Everything about the holiday was superb except for the hotel in St Petersburg.
After so many bad reviews on Tripadvisor over the last few months I would have thought that you would have reverted back to the original hotel.
It was as bad and worse than all the bad reviews. The airconditioning was not even wired up. The breakfast and other meals were a shambles.
I can only assume that the Russian tourist department made you use this hotel.
If not shame on you!!!

Booking arrangements, and flight organisation by Newmarket very poor. They allowed us to book from our local airport, knowing that the flight was already fully booked. Changed flight times from alternative airport 3 times. The Final Travel Details, which I fortunately noticed were incorrect, and I only received amended details 4 days prior to commencement of holiday. Supposedly an 'administrative error'
The holiday in Russia, organised by a Russian Travel Agency, was excellent, with informative, and helpful Tour Guides. The audio system used on the walking tours was excellent.
We saw some wonderful sights both in Moscow, and Saint Petersburg.
