Somebody travelled across Russia? How There?
I Am going to go here, advise, what route is better for choosing? Of what agency to take advantage? On the internet it is a lot of sites offering these services (gotorussia.com, russia-travel.com, 3btours.com, russia.com, etc.), but it were would be desirable to hear opinion of people which already there.
I went to Russia 2 years ago but since I was living in Helsinki, I set up my visa from there. It actually take you an “invitation” to get your visa but any travel agency will find a business that “invite” you. Can be a hotel, hostel, etc.
Since it was a bit confusing with that visa story, I did post couple questions on http://www.lonelyplanet.com website. There is a forum call Thorn tree were there is a lot of information.
