5% off Russia by river

2 April 2013

5% off Russia by river

Experience Russia in style on a spectacular river voyage and save 5 per cent on all 2014 departures with Bentours.

From NZ$3979* per person twin share, the 12-day Volga Dream River Cruise (Gold Program) explores the wonders of the Russian countryside aboard the elegant MS Volga Dream and is one of the very few cruise programs to include accommodation at 5-star hotels in the centre of St Petersburg and Moscow.

Downtown hotel accommodation sets these programs apart from competitors who stay aboard cruise vessels docked at the outskirts of these iconic cities.

The discount applies to bookings made by 1 May 2013 and for departures between 16 May and 14 August 2014.

Travelling from St Petersburg to Moscow, discover Russia’s biggest highlights such as the Kremlin, Hermitage Museum and Catherine’s Palace and ancient riverside towns like Uglich, where you’ll attend an unforgettable choral concert, and Yaroslavl - the oldest city on the Volga River.

Other highlights include a visit to the 18th century Church of the Transfiguration, an onion-domed wooden masterpiece built without using a single nail in Kizhi.

The package includes three nights’ pre-cruise accommodation in St Petersburg, six nights aboard the MS Volga Dream with all meals, sightseeing, English speaking guides throughout and two nights’ post-cruise accommodation in Moscow.

The tour departs regularly during the 2014 summer. The package is also available from Moscow to St Petersburg and as a Platinum Program, which features superior hotel options and some additional sights.

Book now to secure places by contacting Bentours the Russian specialists on 0800 443 510 or or your local travel agent.
