Our tours

Welcome to Histours - Siege of Leningrad and Russian Political History tours page!

Founded in 2009, Histours remains the only tour company focused on providing military and political history themed tours in St. Petersburg and its environs. The project started from the Original Siege of Leningrad History Tour and expanded over time to cover such topics as the Winter War, the Russian Revolution and even the battlefields around Moscow - the only such offer on the Russian tourist market so far. In early 2021 the website underwent radical modernisation and now features a wide selection of World War 2 and Russian Political History tours.

Although the pandemic adversely affected the tour industry, Histours never ceased its operation and is hopeful for the future reopening of international borders. Book your tour for any date this year until the end of April to get a 10% early bird discount!
