Tour description provided by Viator

  Make your trip on the Trans-Siberian Railway even better by getting a high-speed train to two of the most beautiful and historical cities in Russia: Vladimir and Suzdal which are located on the popular Golden Ring tourist route. Both cities played an important role in Russian history and many architectural masterpieces have survived here, some are even protected by UNESCO. During the tour with a professional guide, you will see some of the finest examples of ancient Rus white stone architecture: Vladimir’s Dormition Cathedral and Golden Gates and Suzdal’s Nativity Cathedral and Spaso-Yevfiniev Monastery, plus its Museum of Wooden Architecture.
  A driver will meet you at your hotel in Nizhny Novgorod and take you to the railway station where you will get a high-speed train to Vladimir. At Vladimir Station another driver and your guide will meet you to take you on an excursion around Vladimir and tell you about its history and show you its beautiful buildings.  After the excursion you will have lunch in Vladimir (not included in the price) and then have a transfer to Suzdal which is just 35km from Vladimir, but you will feel as though you have travelled back in time a couple of centuries. Here you will visit the most famous sites in the city and then have one hour of free time in the city before being driven back to Vladimir to catch another high-speed train back to Nizhny Novgorod.  You should be back in your hotel by around 22:30, although it is possible to have a shorter excursion if you wish to get back to Nizhny Novgorod earlier.
