This Sergiev Posad Tour is as filled with sightseeing as you can handle to give you a chance to see as much as possible in one day, rather than touring several Golden Ring towns for several days.

Read our clients' testimonials about tour to Sergiev Posad and The Holy Trinity-St. Sergius Lavra offered by Angel.
All of the tour was good and enjoyable. I liked the most visiting the Lavra and the artist's house. I liked to see and being told about all the old things which nowadays nobody uses anymore. The artist and his wife seemed very welcoming and nice persons. It felt very private and it defenitly felt being well off tourist tracks, which we always love. The tour through Lavra was perfect concerning duration and our guide was enthusiastic, which we liked. Our daughter Nathalie ejoyed the artist's house most, also the Matreschkas. The other daughter Julika enjoyed most the Matruschkas as well, their making and the traditional Russian food. The place for lunch was very nice to our taste. Of course it was a pleasure that the ride from and back to Moscow came on time without waiting time. The driver (also to and from DME) drove safely. Christian, Germany, 31.05.2017
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.

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.

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.

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 indstrial 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 Matreshk production, see hundreds of various Matreshkas 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.
