THE BUSINESS END | 29 JUNE - 8 JULY & 8 JULY - 16 JULY

Tour Summary

UPDATE: 10 MAY – WE HAVE 1 ROOM REMAINING ON OUR ROUND OF 16 & QUARTERS PACKAGE. OUR SEMIS & FINAL PACKAGE IS SOLD OUT

Our ‘Business End’ tours give you the opportunity to base yourself with other Australians in one of the world’s most iconic cities for the pointy end of the biggest show on Earth.

Our Small Business End tour commences 29 June – 8 July (9 nights) and takes in the Round of 16 and Quarter Finals stages of the World Cup. There’s every chance the Socceroos could still be alive and kicking during these phases, and Moscow is the perfect base for you to experience all the Socceroos’ action with fellow Australians from this iconic city.

Our Big Business End tour commences 8 July – 16 July (8 nights) and takes in the big ones: the Semi Finals and the Final. OK- we’ll admit it’s unlikely that the Socceroos will be still kicking-around at this stage, but you can’t beat being based in the host city of the Final of a World Cup – it’s a once in a lifetime experience and not to be missed.

What’s best is you’ll be able to experience all of this with a group of football-loving Socceroos fans. Welcome to Moscow. Welcome to the time of your life!
