Travel is the only thing you can buy that makes you richer!

Created by American fine artist and graduate level professor, Cathy Locke, these once-in-a-lifetime tours incorporate the expertise of master level graduates from Russia's finest universities.  For nearly a decade we have been leading educational tours on art, architecture and culture in Russia.  Unlike other tour companies, Russian Art Tour was established for the consummate student of art and culture, who is searching to further their education and experience the authentic Russia. Most of our tours are made up of small intimate groups of four to twelve people, giving you the opportunity to spend more time on the things you want to see and discuss.
