ABOUT US

East West Tours was opened in 1991 as a licensed travel agency and tour operator to Russia and neighboring countries which became independent after the fall of the Soviet Union.  Due to our “Russian” background, first-hand personal life experiences and extensive travel we have soon become the leading experts in these destinations.

We have numerous direct business contacts and partners overseas who help us develop and implement our tours therefore we can offer the best professional advice combined with great service and the best rates in the industry.

As a licensed tour operator, we accommodate both individual and group travel. Our comprehensive services include competitive airfares, cruises, hotel stays, car rentals, rail passes, city packages, adventure travel and self-drive tours for independent travelers.

In addition we offer excellent escorted group programs to Russia, Ukraine and the Baltic States. All our tours are guaranteed departures so you are always confident that the tour of your dreams will not be cancelled.

One of our main areas of expertise is students’ travel and we are proud to have arranged tours to Russia for one of the best schools in the United States.

Our goal is to design and deliver superior programs and services that always exceed our clients' expectations. Our Group Travel department is increasingly in demand, and we take special pride in creating memorable, custom itineraries.

Since 1997 we became part of Bridges Unlimited Inc. and overtime our services have expanded to Scandinavia, India and the Middle East.

testimonials
I wish to thank you for all your help in planning our trip from St. Petersburg to Moscow. All went very well. The train ride was uneventful. We did need some assistance from the concierge at our hotel in St. Petersburg in deciphering the signs in the railroad station. We had her write our the words "departure" and "arrival" in Russian, so we would know what track our train would be leaving.
