Read our clients' reviews of Sergiev Posad Tour.
The Sergiev Posad tour was definitely one of our highlights of our entire trip. It was a stark contrast from our visits to Moscow and even St. Petersburg. Being able to experience the countryside living and visit one of the most holiest places in Russia was particularly loved by my parents. We were lucky to have Alexander as our tour guide as he was very knowledgeable and fluent in English and Russian. Highly recommended tour! Vinod, Singapore
Our trip to Serguiev Posad with Alex was a great way to appreciate the religious and cultural significance of this place, even without very little prior knowledge. It was well-organized and comfortable, and I can recommend it to people of all ages. Thank you. K. Japan
All of the tour was good and enjoyable. The tour through Lavra was perfect concerning duration and our guide was enthusiastic, which we liked. The place for lunch was very nice to our taste. The driver (also to and from DME) drove safely. Christian, Germany
Our 1st tour was to Serguiev Posad. We were so comfortable in the Audi 6. The driver was so pleasant and went out of his way so that I could re-load my cell phone coverage at Beeline. Alex was the guide and he is from this town & clearly he is passionate about it and loves the area. It's so beautiful. The monastery was a must-see. Also enjoyed the things he added to the tour such as the Matryoshka studio & museums. If you want someone who is knowledgeable, intelligent and cares about you really getting to know Russia, then book this agency.
Our 3rd day of tour was to Suzdal, Vladimir . It was a super long day. I still think Suzdal, the furthest, is worth it.

The tour of Moscow and the Sergiev Posad tour leave perfect and deep impression for me. Perfect! Your team is very professional and I'm very appreciated for your effort. Grace, China
Alexander, We really enjoyed the Sergiev Posad Tour, as planned by Angel Taxi and especially as you explained. Our tour included museums, the Monastery and Matreshka. You gave us an outstanding tour. With this tour, we really got oriented to Ancient Russian Civilization, the famous St. Sergiev Monastery and the history behind Matreshka toys and the beautiful town of Sergiev Posad. More importantly, we learned about Russian Orthodox Churches. This was our first visit to any Monastery and we were totally impressed with the Institution. This was certainly the best and memorable part of our time in and around Moscow and Russia. Many thanks to you and to your pleasant personality that made this such an experience. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Moscow, especially for initial orientation to the churches, monasteries, St. Sergiev and the story behind Matreshka toys. Happy we did this. Chetty M., United States/India

Thank you for making our dream to visit St. Seraphim true and discovering the treasure that is Sergiev Posad. Ricky, Greece
Moscow is surrounded by so-called Golden Ring, a ring of old Russian towns with magnificent architecture and fascinating history. Sergiev Posad is the closest of Golden Ring towns to Moscow. Its world famous The Holy Trinity-St. Sergius Lavra is one of the biggest Russian monasteries, a huge Orthodox town in a town, UNESCO World Heritage object. St. Sergius Lavra is one of the most sacred places for Christians in Russia. After the massive renovation of Lavra prior to St. Sergius'-700 anniversary in 2014, during this tour to Sergiev Posad you will see probably the most beautiful monastery in Russia.
Take this Golden Ring of Russia: Sergiev Posad One Day Private Tour and experience old Russia with its old churches and tranquil lifestyle and numerous places of interest. The town has a variety of sights to see and the programme of the tour can be tailored to your interests to make most of it. None of our visitors has ever been dissatisfied with Golden Ring One Day Private Tour to Sergiev Posad.

Sergiev Posad is the birth place of Russian Matreshka. You will see lots of beautiful Matreshkas here. Sergiev Posad is also called the capital of Russian toys, as several villages around it, along with Matreshka production, provided children with the widest choice of toys for centuries. You can also see folk and industrial toys from the last 150 years.
Wide recognition in Russia and abroad made the Matryoshka a basic commercial product in Sergiev Posad and promoted subsequent development of other places. The ornamental and decorative Matryoshka style of each region is different.
You will learn the main stages of Matryosha-doll history and Matryoshka production, see hundreds of various Matryoshkas from classical Sergiev Posad ones (including author's Matryoshkas) to Matreshkas made elsewhere.
A great success of the Matryoshka-doll does not fade away. Matryoshka stroke the contemporaries with the perfect artistic image and national character that made it not just a toy, but a memorable souvenir and symbol of Russia and Sergiev Posad.
The highly emotional image of the Russian Matryoshka is associated with festive mood and joy. To feel them, book the tour to Sergiev Posad with Angel.
Lots of places, cafes, shops, in Sergiev Posad have Russian style interiors. Even McDonald’s (our corporate client) used Russian Gzhel porcelain for their interior in Sergiev Posad close to St. Sergius Lavra. This is the only example we have seen so far when it acknowledged the variety of Russian folk crafts in its modern-style interiors.
In 2014 whole Russia celebrated the 700-th anniversary of St. Sergius birthday. There was an extensive programme of services, concerts, large Christian and souvenir fair and other activities. Unfortunately, we were not able to provide tours to Sergiev Posad those days, as the town was closed for inbound traffic for a couple of days, while thousands of Christian pilgrims walked to the town from tent camps set up in neighboring fields as all the hotels in Sergiev Posad were booked up long before as is usually the case in Sergiev Posad in summer.
