Our Partners

At Birch Grove Adventures, certain aspects of our tours are not outsourced, including:

  • Our people who tour with our guests
  • Overall responsibility for safety and risk management (safety driving and first aid is instructed by partners)
  • Tour design and development

We have several trusted and valued partners with whom we collaborate to provide the experience of the real Russia. These partners include:

A&R Weapons Factory, Zlatoust
Manufacturers of knives and advanced technology composite bases for knife manufacture. The company has made almost 1m knives, and exports to many countries in Europe and Northern America.
On our Ural Contrasts tour, the team at A&R welcome us to their factory and provide a unique experience. You can try your hand as a blacksmith, and even make your own knife.

A premium-quality Russian language school operating for expatriates and clients from abroad aged 16 years old and upwards.
Having fallen in love with Russia on one of our tours, you may decide to develop your language skills. Our friends at Russianlab can help.

Bringing together the best of Russian language and lifestyle – learning, entertainment, sport, social life, fun, friendship and not to forget food and drink! Immerse yourself in the Russian Language and spend time with real Russians and likeminded students from all over the world.
