We are a family run business that is committed to providing great value and service to our clients all over the world. Anastasia is a proud member of the American Society of Travel Agents and the Central & Eastern Europe Travel Board, and our Romance Tours have long been recognized as the benchmark by which other tour companies are measured. Our reputation for honesty and integrity has been the key to our success, which is why half of our clients come to us by word of mouth alone.
Anastasia’stour receptions are famous and are attended eagerly by some of the most beautiful women in Russia and Ukraine. Only Anastasia International has the resources and experience to bring groups to Russia and Ukraine on a frequent and regular basis. Our 146th tour departed Feb. 10, 2005.
Anastasia is the only Romance tour company to be founded, owned and operated by a Russian/American couple; giving us a degree of insight and expertise that cannot be matched by our competitors. Our owners, David and Elena Besuden met in 1992 through online matchmaking services and were married that same year.
Anastasia has been featured on a multitude of televisions shows and networks, including: 48 Hours, The Daily Show, The Howard Stern Show, and Jennie Jones, (News features on ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX, CNN and the BBC) as well as a multitude of television networks in Japan, Germany, The Netherlands, France, Italy, Switzerland, Brazil, Turkey and Australia to just name a few.
Anastasia is proud to have the largest full-time staff in the industry. With 80 full-time professionals hard at work in our US and Moscow offices, we are able to conduct tours and provide services with a level of expertise and professionalism that is unequaled by any other company. For instance, it is not a surprise that Anastasia is the only company in the world to offer Flower and Gift Delivery to every single city in the former Soviet Union! We are the only Romance Tour Company that enjoys true Russian/American ownership. David and Elena's connections to Russia run far deeper than our competitors, which gives Anastasia the ability to network with agencies and companies in every corner of the former Soviet Union. While our competitors offer flower deliveries in a meager 7 cities, we are able to deliver flowers and gifts to literally hundreds of cities and towns across all 11 time zones!
Anastasia's American staff in our office in Bangor welcomes you to the great state of Maine! Come and meet our friendly employees and enjoy our beautiful little city, which has some of the best-preserved examples of classic 19th Century New England Architecture to be found anywhere. We are only a short drive from the world famous Acadia National Park and Mount Desert Island, so do yourself a favor and come say hello!
