Our expectations were constantly exceeded by a company that really takes their client's best interests to heart! Our itineraries every day were designed to minimise the crowds and maximise the impact. For example we were almost the first group into the Armoury in the Kremlin and were definitely the first group into the Hermitage in Saint Petersburg on the days we visited them. And friends who've ...

Volga Dream has a huge advantage over other Russian river cruises because the passengers stay in luxury hotels in the heart of St. Petersburg and Moscow. The days spent in these two major cities can begin early because there is no wasted time being driven in from the dock. Also, it is easy to walk to restaurants and other places after a day of touring; many special memories were made in the ...

i chose to book with a Russian company as I felt we would have a more authentic Russian experience. It was excellent! Each day we stopped and had a tour of a different town/city. We had sufficient free time which was much appreciated. The tour guides were absolutely fabulous. Their knowledge was encyclopedic. Many, if not all, were university professors during the school year - it ...

We had dreamed of visiting Russia and decided to go with another pair of friends . We found The Volga Dream Program: 3 days in St. Petersburg, 6 days on board and 3 days in Moscow. Everything was perfect: the five-stars hotels, Grand Hotel Europe in St.Petersburg and The Ararat in Moscow, both are excellent and located in the best place of the each city. The boat was very good, the ...

We surveyed a number of possibilities before settling on the Volga Dream for our trip from Moscow to St Petersburg on the Volga River. We wanted a small ship--the Volga Dream accommodates 100 passengers although we had fewer on our voyage. We were intrigued by the fact that the ship is owned by a Russian family and has a Russian crew. We also noted that many Volga cruises sleep on the ship ...

This cruise stood out from the rest because we could stay in hotels while touring Moscow and St Petersburg rather than needing to return to the ship each day. This was such a plus in terms of not wasting time in traffic, being a few minutes away from attractions when exploring in free time and enjoying comfort and space in really lovely hotels. The city tours hit all the main spots with great ...

Pre & post embarkation tours of Moscow & St. Petersburg busy & somewhat tiring but good. In our case due to length of flights, visits to both cities a bit short with so much to see & do and so many fellow tourists doing the same. Mini tour buses had small windows & did not allow for easy viewing of the city sites. All guides in cities & on shore excursions very knowledgeable with excellent ...

We chose this cruise because there are three nights in a Moscow hotel at the beginning and three nights in a hotel in St Petersburg at the end. This saved a lot of travel time in busy traffic from city to port. A really good advantage over other cruises. We looked at. The hotels were excellent. The St Regis in Moscow my favourite offering little extras like free coffee and tea to the room, as well ...

Disappointing from tourist point of view

We, a mature, well travel-versed, globe-trotting couple, took the Russia, August 26 – September 5 (St.Peterburg to Moscow) “Volga Dream” tour/cruise. The cruise itself (Aug.28-Sept.3) was most definitely a sub-standard tourist experience, at wide variance from the Volga Dream published itinerary. The ship’s 1959 (yes, you read it right!) vintage and size are sadly inadequate: the vessel did ...

Saint Petersburg to Moscow - 6 night cruise then 3 nights in outstanding hotels in each of the two big cities. We travelled GOLD class and were delighted with the mix between organized and free time. This was a marvelous experience - lovely boat with a hard working and cheerful crew. All logistics worked perfectly and our expectations were met throughout. Excellent speakers providing ...
