Nothing will ever quite prepare you for the imperial grandeur, glitz and glamour of Russia, the land of fur-lined hats, caviar, champagne, ballet, and the over-the-top capitals of modern Russia. First there is Saint Petersburg, a feast for the senses and a treasure trove of art and architecture. From the world renowned art in the Hermitage, opulent architecture, elegant villas and palaces and soaring, onion-domed cathedrals that lend the city its fairy tale charm, to an extraordinary history of resilience and rebirth written into every stone, the most beautiful city in Russia is full of romantic ambiance, bridges, museum-like streets and imperial spirit. Tsar Peter the Great’s “window on the West,” St. Petersburg was built in the early 1700s on 44 islands, and today it’s a stunning city, laced with canals, graceful bridges, and Empire-style buildings.

And then Moscow, a city with a feel of a vivid, exhilarating and vibrant metropolis, yet with streets filled with Art Nouveau and Russian Revival mansions, flowering courtyards and icon-filled churches, it is a city of mesmerizing contrasts and different textures. Our time in Moscow we will give us an unparalleled insight into the city that can only come from our deep understanding of its past and present: Red Square, the Kremlin, the colorful domes of St. Basil’s Cathedral, Lenin’s Mausoleum, Arbat Street, Pushkin Museum and Bolshoi Theatre, with one foot grounded in the glorious past and the other jumping into the future, Moscow has proved her mettle as a global capital.

I am usually the person who plans trips for my family and keeps everyone organized during the trip. Joining a Sights & Soul tour gives me the chance to take a vacation without having to do all the work. It was great to have a total break from responsibility and know that I’ll have a wonderful experience, meet new people, and be safe. – Mary from Illinois

Why travel with other women?
Many women do not have families or compatible friends who wish to travel. When going on a main-stream tour, women often find that most activities are geared towards couples and quite often they feel left out. Singles' tours are not always what women are looking for. If you do not have a traveling companion, there is also the issue of the expensive "single supplement", sometimes as much as 50 or even 100 percent of the tour cost. By going on women-only tours, women can easily avoid paying for the single supplement by sharing a room with another woman traveler.
