Tour Schedule

Day 1
Day 2

Moscow-Suzdal

We depart from Moscow by car in the morning. We will drive for 200 km along the Gorkovskoye shosse, one of the main Russian roads. The landscape will be constantly changing, from urban to rural, from forests to hills. Traveling is always unpredictable, but it will take us approximately 3.5 hours to get to Suzdal. And that’s not long! You’re in Russia, after all!

Upon arriving in Suzdal, we will check in at the hotel (or simply leave our luggage there, depending on the time of our arrival), have a second breakfast in a nice café called Gnezdo Pekarya (Baker’s Nest), and get ready to explore the town. We will be picked up by a professional guide who will give us a sightseeing tour around Suzdal, tell us about its history, show us the best places for taking pictures, visit the Kremlin with us, and overall, will do everything to help us get a complete immersion into the local culture. At the end of our walking tour, we will taste mead – the authentic Russian drink. This is a very interesting experience and an activity you can’t miss when visiting this town.

In the evening, we’ll visit local souvenir shops, dine at the best restaurant of Suzdal, and try typical meals and drinks.

There’s an additional activity for the bravest ones – Russian bathhouse!

Suzdal-Moscow

In the morning, we will go to the Museum of Wooden Architecture. Everyone will have time to independently study the open-air ensemble of typical Russian buildings. You will see churches, huts, windmills, and more.

After that, we’ll get into the car and head to Moscow. However, there’s another place on our way that we must visit! It’s a farm that belongs to John Kopiski, an Englishman who moved to Russia many years ago and founded his “estate” where to this day he makes wonderful cheese, produces meat, and grows vegetables. That’s where we will spend some time cooking steaks from local meat under the guidance of the chef and then eat them all!

Happy and amazed, we will get back to the road to Moscow! 2 hours on the road can be used to sleep and have some rest or enjoy the view from the car window.

Depending on the season, we can replace the car drive with an alternative option – a high-speed train or a taxi.
