  • 04.12.2017 WTM in London 2017

    Dear friends and partners!

    We are happy to say that Vodohod Russian River Cruises had a good show during the World Travel Market in London on the 08th-10th of November 2017!
    It is necessary to mention that WTM is the annual event and the greatest one in the world where all the travel companies and agencies are gathered in one platform to find brand new collaborations.

    As usual, in 2017 WTM was a highly successful event. The figures show that WTM London 2017 hosted an increased level of seniority amongst its visitors, with a significant increase in purchasing ability. For the first time the number of senior industry buyers from the WTM Buyers’ Club smashed through the 10,000 barrier. Overall attendance figures are around 50,000.

    Last year we it was easy to notice the new boost of interest for Russian river cruises and now we have got the clear evidence of it. During the three days of the show Vodohod staff onsite had not a single minute of being free: meeting with our long-term partners and new companies’ representatives were mixed together and appointed for all available time slots.

    We are proud to conclude that WTM 2017 has given us the most effective result and as always helped us to conduct fruitful discussions and talks with various partners from all over the world.


    Faithfully yours,
    Vodohod Team

My review will be short because it could be almost word-for-word identical to that of RecaLondon's review for Sept of 2013. Same ship, same experience, with only a few differences:
we booked thru TravelAllRussia, based in St Petersburg, Moscow and Washington DC. Our agent there, Anna was excellent. My mother and I originally booked for May of 2012. Six months prior, her home was struck by lightning and the entire second story burned. Anna moved our deposit to May of 2013. After the house was rebuilt, we decided to sell it, and move her to South Carolina ( she is 85, time for her to be near family) and Anna moved our deposit to May of 2014. No hassles, no quibbles about trip insurance!!! Our $2100 USD pp fare included the cost of the Visa, and the transfer from the Moscow airport and to the train station in St Petersburg.
The included daily excursions were very good, our guides were excellent. We took the same optional excursions as Recal, with the exception that we had pre-purchased, thru TravelAllRussia, tickets to the Kirov Ballet at the Mariinsky Theater. The Cruise Director on the ship made the arrangements for a taxi to take us to and pick us up after the performance.
Travelers on the ships were broken up into daily tour groups by language and/ or travel agency: The French group included French, Belgians and North Africans. The English group had residents from ENG, SCOT, NZ, AUS, CAN, VN, HK, INDIA, ARG and then there were just 4 of us from the USA.. We were lucky enough to be in a very small tour group of 20, so we had lots of room on the daily tour buses and weren't a huge crowd on the walks.
This was an amazing value for the price. I will probably never be able to pay Viking River Cruise prices again without feeling ripped off. The rooms might have been a tad smaller, but the meals were as good or better, and for the $$2600 price difference, who cares about 10 sq ft (if that). Who spends time in the cabin anyway???
