Fees do not include airfare or visa costs. Visa will be arranged through our travel partner at guest expense. Guests must have a valid passport that is good for one year beyond the trip date (Russian requirement). Signups will be taken on a first come, first served basis. Shared or private rooms require all parties in the room to pay the full fee. (For example, each member of a couple pays one full fee, and each fee represents one ticket for the event.) Meals and transportation are included unless guests choose to have time away on their own. Optional excursions (such as opera tickets) may be offered, which will be the responsibility of the guest.
