Moscow - Astrakhan Volga cruise

It was a unique chance to see many different parts of Russia in one trip. It was very well arranged and we enjoyed it completely. To chose this cruise was a very wise decision. We saw the bests of Moscow and also got a feeling for Russian village life. The boat was comfortable and very clean. We used the balcony a lot and really enjoyed the weather and the beauty of the waterways. Overall it was a fantastic experience to be remembers for the years to come. Highly recommend East West Tours for their customer oriented services. My special thanks to Dora. Her advise was very professional and useful. Liz Myong – Liz Myong -

Thank you for a splendit tour

We started looking for a cruise a year before and selected Moscow – Astrakhan M/S "Nikolay Chernishevsky" because it looked so extraordinary and East West Tours were very professional in giving us all possible details about this cruise. They are real experts. The ship was very nice and comfortable , the crew was attentive and we really felt cared for. We particularly enjoyed the lessons that we had on history and the language. Shore excursions were enjoyable and interesting. We especially liked small town/city visits. The tour guides were excellent and very nice people. It's a pity we had too little time to spend in those small shore places to browse the crafts and local items available in many of them.

Fantastic trip

Dora, thank you very much for arranging this fantastic trip for us. As you know we had a lot of fears and concerns about safety, food and other. I have to admit that all your explanations and comments were true and we had an amazing time on board of this beautiful boat with very helpful and always smiling staff. The food was surprisingly high standard and we had no complaints about the service. A minor drawback was a little too noisy company of holidaymakers requiring extra attention on every possible matter. All in all the tour was very successful, packed with interesting facts about Russian history, nature and even learned a few Russian words.

I wish to thank you for all your help in planning our trip from St. Petersburg to Moscow. All went very well. The train ride was uneventful. We did need some assistance from the concierge at our hotel in St. Petersburg in deciphering the signs in the railroad station. We had her write our the words "departure" and "arrival" in Russian, so we would know what track our train would be leaving.
