Russia with our Customized Special-Interest Tours
the stereotypes and other misconceptions and learn first-hand about
the real Russia!
Serendipity will make all the arrangements: visa, hotels, meals, in-country transportation, and guides. In addition, prior to departure you will be given a suggested reading list; access to our publication, A History of the Vladimir Region for Visitors and an accompanying video; plus an up-to-date collection of “travel tips,” including what to pack.
You will be met at the airport by an English-speaking escort who will take care of all of the details during your tour. And - just in case - you will be loaned a mobile phone. (In addition to allowing you to reach other members of your group, your escort, and American Home staff, you will be able to receive calls from the States with no charge to your mobile phone.)
You will be able to relax and concentrate on absorbing all that you will encounter - from the often stunningly picturesque Russian countryside, to the magnificent centuries old cathedrals, and, most rewarding, the exceptionally hospitable Russian people you will meet.
Serendipity is in a unique position to organize especially rewarding group and individual tours through the "heart of Russia." Thanks in part to the American Home's very highly regarded English program and many “special projects,” we have a wide range of contacts. This means that we can arrange a variety of unique visits and meetings, in addition to making sure that you see the “real Russia.”
Tour with a group, or schedule an individual/family tour with a customized itinerary.
In the past, our specialized tours have included visits to an orphanage, schools, medical and law enforcement facilities, and factories, as well as meetings with artists and artisans, musicians, English language students, and others.
