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.

It was a very enjoyable cruise

Hi Dora, it was a very enjoyable cruise. Thank you for arranging it for us in a very short time.  Loved seeing & learning about this beautiful country and its people. This cruise was a unique opportunity to go deep into Russia and experience the life there first hand.  We came home with lots of lovely memories and pictures! Best regards, Rodney Lapwood

Volga River cruise aboard M/S "Nizhny Novgorod".

My wife and I recently done the cruise almost the entire length of the Volga River aboard M/S "Nizhny Novgorod". We booked this cruise through East West Tours and were not disappointed. They arranged everything efficiently and very professionally. From the time we arrived on the dock everything was taken care off . The cabin was spacious with the private bathroom, a bar fridge and two bottles of water supplied a day.   wi fi in the common lounge and it  worked fine when near shore . Food was amazingly good with plenty of variety.  There were history and Russian language lessons on board ,  which we thoroughly enjoyed. The day trips were fun and informative with very professional local guides.

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.
