Just back from 13 days cruising down the Volga River, across two of Europe's largest lakes, through 18 locks from Moscow to St. Petersburg. We travelled again with Gate 1 Travel on the vessel, MS Zosima Shashkov which was very comfortable. Even though the cabins were small, we spent little time in it, preferring to get out & view the passing scenery. The tour covered some great excursions ashore in Moscow, where we visited Red Square & the Kremlin. We also took a night tour of Moscow, which I would strongly recommend.
Once leaving Moscow, we sailed on a very smooth river, visiting some amazing historic towns along the way. Uglich the ancient town with the beautiful Church of St. Dimitry-on-Blood, built on the spot where Ivan the Terrible's son Dimitry was killed at the age of 10. Yaroslavl was another ancient town, established in 1010, dating back to the time of the Vikings. The Cathedral dates back 800 years.
Onboard activities were also fun with Russian language sessions, Russian Dancing sessions & even a talent quest amongest the many fun times & getting to know each other times. The Captain's welcome with his crew was very pleasant, as was the champagne. Meals were excellent with a Russian touch. I would definetly recommend the tour, which can be taken either from Moscow or St. Petersburg.
We had three days in St. Petersburg & it was a breath taking, visiting the winter & summer palaces, plus taking a river/canal tour, which is a must.
For value & quality the Gate 1 Russian River Cruise is well worth the effort.
