Gvidon Tours Kreuzfahrten GmbH is a brand of the Russian tour operator Orthodox Cruise Company in Europe that offers first-hand river cruises in Russia. The entire offer of the Orthodox Cruise Company on Russian rivers is available to tour operators and travel agencies from the cruise segment as well as other partners.
All the ships have been modernised and are in the four-star category. The newly designed cabins have bathrooms, air conditioning and a mini refrigerator. The large panorama windows provide travellers with views of the vast landscapes, seas and forests of Russia, which they can also enjoy from the sun deck. The furnishings in the ship’s cabins as well as conference rooms, libraries, bars and restaurants are modern and very comfortable.
The culinary programme is varied and provides a variety of Russian as well as international cuisine. There are about 50 crew members in the restaurant and galley to pamper the on-board guests. We combine traditional dishes with Central European preferences in the finest possible way. In addition to traditional Russian dishes such as borscht, shchi, pelmeni, and more, we also offer Ukrainian and Georgian specialities. The menus are prepared by our culinary expert Heiko Müller and are accompanied by a selected wine.
Breakfast is buffet style; lunch and dinner are served at the tables.
In addition to the popular routes of “Saint Petersburg - Moscow” and “Rostov-on-Don - Moscow”, the trip from Moscow to Astrakhan, the caviar capital of Russia, is especially appreciated. The area along the Volga from Moscow to Astrakhan is considered the very soul of Russia. Astrakhan is famous as the gateway to the Volga Delta on the Caspian Sea. Beyond the city, this mighty river divides into 80 arms forming a delta that is 120km long and up to 200km wide. A fascinating experience!
