MORE INFORMATION ABOUT RUSSIAIt's known as oiling the wheels - and nobody does it better than A&K. Absolutely nobody. Guy Richards would agree. As he landed in Moscow, anticipation mingled with dread at the prospect of the lengthy entry formalities. He needn't have worried. Stepping off the plane, he was greeted by our representative and escorted past long queues before enjoying a VIP fast track through customs and passport control. While other passengers waited in a chaotic arrivals hall, Guy was half way to his hotel in our chauffeured limo.
That start sets the tone. We understand exactly how to make your Abercrombie & Kent Russian holiday, or short break to Moscow and St Petersburg, run as smoothly as possible. Two of our five European offices are based there with staff on call round-the-clock, superb local guides - their fluent English is matched by a desire to share wide-ranging knowledge - and top notch contacts to arrange exclusive experiences. Given the country's wonderful architecture, history and culture, it can add a new dimension to your visit, from private tours of the Hermitage's off-limits departments, to expert vodka and caviar tasting.
