Every trip from Go to Star is a personalised, hand-made journey. Every single route is created on the foundation of dozens of books, films, ratings and recommendations, filtered through the personal experience and judgment of the founders of our agency, Natalya Kuklina and Anton Krasilnikov. Their involvement in the process never goes unnoticed as Natalya and Anton always travel with the group, acting as your welcoming hosts. Every detail vital for your comfort – be that the compatibility of certain personalities in a group or fresh flowers in your hotel room – is thought out with precision. The entire programme is built in a way that allows you to focus on the important things around you, without needing to waste time on unnecessary details. As Oscar Wilde once said: “My tastes are simple. I am easily satisfied with the best.”
According to Natalya Kuklina, “Prejudice, impatience and close mindedness are fatal traits when it comes to travelling”. After launching her first international travel-project, SunHunters, in the early 2000s, Natalya was responsible for managing the development of Aeroclub, FishPoint Family Resort and other major hotel projects in Russia, as well as developing the design hotel StandArt. Natalya’s management skills and vast expertise in the tourism field have helped the agency Go to Star to flawlessly upbuild the entire business process right from the start. Natalya is certain that the goal is not the destination, but the ability to look at the world from a different perspective. “There is nothing healthier for your nerves than to go somewhere where you have never been.”
“According to the rules of dramaturgy, the hero at the beginning of his journey is not the same hero at the end. I love change; therefore, I am constantly in search of new routes!”, says Anton. A restaurateur, creator of the projects Fish Point, Florentini, Chichiko and Tandem Coffee as well as the mastermind and ideologist of Go to Star, Anton is always on the move. He is also responsible for the cultural and gastronomical aspects of the project, his goal being to present common phenomena from a different angle, since it is mainly through contrasts that life can be experienced to the fullest.
The experienced eye of an expert is like a knife which cuts everything unnecessary away while sharpening the attention of the guests on what is truly important. It is this particular expertise that is the key which can open any given door. During the trips at Go to Star, we find ourselves in places originally inaccessible to tourists. But this is not a question of status or price. The relationships we make, tested by time and travels, are our treasure; a treasure measured by the joy of every new meeting and which guarantees an insider’s route and rare amenities. We are constantly becoming the witnesses of exceptional events and are ready to take you with us – be it to a closed royal manufactory, a theatre for a private viewing, an artist’s studio or a private dining room at the best restaurant in the world.
Every Go to Star trip is limited to ten people in order to guarantee a maximum level of comfort for all travellers. We are proud of the friendships we have with our clients and value their trust in us.
We enjoy changing and developing certain routes and the services we offer, in accordance with our clients’ wishes. We are ready to organise any trip – from romantic to corporate.
No trip is made more than twice at Go to Star as we are inspired by new discoveries. However, we are always happy to make an exception for private tours.
