"This was the most interesting bike ride I have done. It was a great way to experience a closer look about Russia."
Nick Hrabar, Canada

"I did 2 cycling tours in Russia in 2012. The tours were very well organised and provided besides cycling also a lot of visits in Moscow, St. Petersburg and along the way in towns and villages. Food and lodging in hotels were very good. These are tours for cyclists who are looking for a really different, most interesting experience."

Geoff Stevens, Australia

"We felt that the trip offered us a window onto life today in Russia, its complexities, its challenges, and the remarkable resilience of its people."

"Tours like this may help to dispel myths and improve relations between our countries."
Jan Peterson, USA

"We’ve been on Golden Circle Tour in 2016. It was excellent in every dimension. Not only the route was very interesting, but the organization by Vladimir and his team was world class. Everything was on time, everybody was well informed, routes were carefully planned and logistics worked like a clockwork. We strongly recommend this trip to anybody who is willing to visit Russia on a bicycle and wants all organizational hassle taken by someone else. We’re planning to come back next year on another trip by RCTC."
Michal Kostrzewa and Zuzanna Senatorska, Poland
