Tour Programs for Kazan

Monkey Business were once again the first transsiberian travel agency to offer stopovers in Kazan, capital of Tartarstan - a region where Russian and Central Asian cultures overlap. Kazan is a convenient stop in between Ekaterinburg and Moscow and can be added into any Trans Siberian custom trip with a stop in Ekaterinburg. It also features in many of our longer Deal tours.

We always used to use the Shalyapin 3* hotel in Kazan in the past, which is a good standard hotel with an interesting presence in the city. However, our tours are now based on the recently opened Ibis Hotel, which has less character but as with so many of our tours, you spend so little time in the hotel room, that location and value for money are important factors.

You can always upgrade to a different hotel if you prefer.
