Great website to book Russian trains

I was traveling from SPB to MOW on 12 Sept. Booked 2 tickets for Sapsan through, the booking experience has been great and very very easy. Got our tickets the same day along with the choice of seats we had requested. Russian is highly recommended as they give out the best fares compared to other Russian train websites and every detail is in English. The website is very informative for first time Non Russian speaking travelers. Next visit is in May 2020 with family and I would gladly use to book tickets from Kazan to to SPB....

Excellent service

Excellent service. It was easy to select and book online for the SAPSAN tickets from Moscow to St. Petersburg.

Overall this has been an amazing experience

Overall this has been an amazing experience. I appreciate the patience and professionalism. The culture in Russia is a beautiful thing. I would highly recommend this company and look forward an additional visit.

My experience with was great

My experience with was great. The system is user friendly and the communication thorough and frequent. The two Saspan train trips between Moscow and St. Petersburg were the best transport experiences of our three week long trip in Russia and the Caucasus. The tickets were excepted without any problems and the friendly, yet professional hostess could even assist us with some English. Truly a world class experience, thank you.

Totally seamless experience

Totally seamless experience. The Sapsan tickets arrived just as promised, and everything went perfectly on the train. Not much more you can ask for!

A repeat customer

I recently used Russian Rail for the third time and found the service to be excellent and exceptionally professional. At about the same time I made my reservations my son made reservations with a competing company. We made separate reservations since our start and stop dates of travel were different. The problems my son experienced are too numerous to detail in this space, but suffice it to say he had to eventually cancel with that company. His experience makes me especially appreciative of the service I have received with Russian Rail.

Good experience with RussiaRail

We recently used RussianRail twice for our train bookings during our tour of Russia. We got good rates for our booking of the Sapsan fast train from St Petersburg to Moscow where we got to choose the type of seats and the direction of travel which other booking sites were not offering. We also used them to book our fast train tickets to Vladimir and back. The tickets are not immediately generated but you will receive them within a few hours of making the payment.

The railways's service is perfect!

I was impressed with the service of this railway company. Online booking was easy to use and comfortable to ride. I think in-car services such as free lunch service and WIFI are perfect.

Fantastic Exprience - 5 Stars plus

Excellent experience from ticketing through the entire round trip journey. A fantastic, convenient way to travel in Russia.


Very good service, easy to use website, tickets sent by email, we went on the Saspan from Saint Petersburg to Moscow, brilliant service, had a fantastic time in Russia, would recommend anyone to go.

The best train journey ever

Honestly speaking, the most comfortable, luxurious, clean train journey I had been so far in my life. The timing of the train, the entire journey was so mesmerising. I would definitely recommend Russian rail to my fellow travellers in future and would love to be back and taking the train again in near future.

A fabulous journey

A fabulous journey from Moscow to St Petersburg. There was wifi on the train plus brochures on both cities and free earphones. They serve coffee etc for purchase. Very impressed!

Brilliant experience

We travelled on the fast train (Sapsan) from St Petersburg to Moscow recently and were very pleasantly surprised with the whole experience. 9am boarding was efficient and punctual and we only had to be at the station 30 minutes before departure. Plus our luggage travelled with us, so as opposed to airline travel, no long wait at the other end. Staff were wonderful and carriage was spotlessly clean and well appointed. Could not recommend it more highly. Brilliant way to travel and see a little bit of the Russian countryside was a bonus.

Smooth booking experience

Booking experience was smooth, fast and website was easy to navigate! They were also cheaper than other websites I’ve checked

Good experience

We booked our tickets from Moscow to St. Petersburg by Sapsan online. It was a smooth user friendly process. The train was on time, comfortable and clean. With adequate baggage space. No problem at all. The staff was polite and courteous. I would recommend all to travel with Russian Rail

Very happy return customer

It’s our second journey using the service and the service has been very professional. Highly recommended.

Perfect service

Perfect service all away from ordering tickets to the ride from Moscow to st.petersburg. Quick personal assistance for changing day of travel. Thank you.

Booking through your company made our life easier

Booking through your company made our life easier when organising such a complex trip from our perspective. Communication was excellent and to break the trip into four parts from Beijing/Ulaan Baatar/Urkutsk/Moscow/St Petersburg this was essential. We would recommend tour company.

Excellent service

I used the service to find and reserve a train from Moscow to Sanct Petersburg from France. I’glad to say it’s a perfect service. Everything is well explained ; the paiement system is perfect too. I totally recommend it !!!


Fast, Reliable, Good customer relations, what else you can want from a company. Thank you all

Once you have your tickets, look forward to a wonderful, smooth
and enjoyable journey through the Russian countryside.

Buy your ticket safely and securely and then sit back
