Russia is huge: a lot of UNESCO World Heritage spots, diversity of regions, roads, nature sites, history and culture. There are Hermitage and Road of Bones, Siberia and Red Square, Elbrus and Lake Baikal. And we want to show adventure riders from all over the world all this beauty.

We have plenty of regular tours, for example Moscow - St. Petersburg, Moscow - Vladivostok, Sochi - Elbrus, Crimea, Karelia, Road of Bones, Altay and we constantly working on adding new destinations and extensions of our routes' borders.

Our guides is our main asset. We spend huge amount of time searching for best of the best, training them, implementing in our corporate culture of hospitality, professionalism and deep local expertise. We are proud to have probably best guides in Russia. Please welcome.

  1. Alexander Rubtsov

One more legendary traveler is in our squad. More than 10 years ago Alex made a round the world trip. Since that motorcycles and motorcycle travelling in particular became a part of his life. Alex is a very experienced, smart and trustful person who loves to share some of his memories from his great journeys. Alex prefers long expeditions and challenging tours, such as Moscow-Vladivostok, Vladivostok-Magadan, Siberia (Altay, Tuva, Baikal). A legendary guide needs a legendary bike, that is why he drives his Honda Africa Twin.

  1. Vlad Vasilevskii

In 2015, Vlad moved from Moscow to sunny Sochi and today he is head of our Sochi office. Caucasus, Sochi and Crimea are home places for him that is why he is in charge of these Southern directions. Vlad is keen on mountains, free diving, snowboarding and yoga. He’s done Ironman twice. Surprisingly, but he is also an excellent shisha smoker. We are old friends with Vlad but as a tour guide he joined us recently and we are very happy that he is doing just great.

  1. Mike Bibichkov

Mike is very educated and sincere person, he loves long riding and beautiful nature views. We met him occasionally after reading several travel reports about Karelia and Chuhloma that he published in the Russian web site devoted to motorcycle travelling. They were very well written, and he described places we love as well, so we invited him for a glass of beer. We quickly became friends and soon colleagues. Mike owns Triumph Tiger and is mostly focused on our short weekend tours around Moscow. He is also in charge of Karelia region and Kola Peninsula (North part of Russia, not far from Finland and Norway).

       5. Artem Kurganov

Before joining us he was working as a space engineer combining it with a part-time job as psychologist. Artem joined us in 2018 being in charge of our garage and doing a lot of work with the bikes and gear which had a massive impact on company's business. Today he is an important member of our team doing most of our tours. Friendship with Mike is the reason why he is riding his Triumph Tiger. And frankly speaking he likes it a lot.

  1. Anton Aleshanov

Our meeting was as spontaneous as most other things that happen in our life. In the beginning Anton was helping us with guided walking city tours around Saint-Petersburg. He lives in this city, has a perfect English and works as a city guide there. But he is also a motorcycle lover and at one moment we decided to try to involve him into doing one of our guided motorcycle tour. It worked out perfectly and now he is one of our tour guides. Anton now is learning German language. He owns a very funny city pit bike…))
