I’ve heard a lot of great reviews on romance tours and the services that they offer. A few of my friends have personally tried going to one themselves and have been suggesting that I should attend one. I’ve been researching about it for a couple of weeks now and I’ve decided to give it a shot.

I’m seriously considering joining a romance tour in Russia but I’m wondering which part of the country I’ll visit. There are many great places to visit in Russia but since this is going to be my first time in the country, I want to go somewhere that sounds interesting. Since there are so many choices to choose from, I would like to have more insight on this.

Researching doesn’t seem to be enough for me to decide so I was thinking about asking people who have personally travelled and experienced going to Russia themselves. For some of you guys who have already gone to Russia, what do you recommend and suggest?

Any would be greatly appreciated and I will surely take them into account. With each destination recommended to me, I will definitely add it to my list. Please help me out with this you guys and let me know about your experiences as well! Thanks so much for any response on this!

Do you really have that many places to choose from? I was under the impression that all the Russian "romance tours" centred around Moscow or St Petersburg I've never heard of anyone going to Vladivostok to find a bride I know you said you read a lot of great reviews but there are a high number of scam companies, do thorough research and make sure whatever company you pick is reputable, otherwise you could risk losing a lot of money.

We took a tour from Berlin during 2012, through Denmark to Stockholm then to Helsinki, St Petersburg, 4 hour fast train to Moscow, then onto Warsaw etc etc.

The highlight was St Petersberg - unbeliveable palaces , churches etc etc - Moscow was excellent ! You will always remember these cities.

Do your research - google up travel guides on these cities and also research postings on Travellerspoint.
