Waterways of the Tsars Cruise Reviews

People love to tell us how much they enjoyed their journey and we're as honored by their words as we are by the fact that they chose to travel with us in the first place. Read some of the best reviews about our guests' experiences below.

TO RUSSIA WITH LOVE

What a trip! Viking River Cruises did it again. From Day 1 through Day 13, our trip was a 10+, and Viking gave us everything we anticipated and more. The Viking Ingvar staff was everything we expected; where else can you get champagne for breakfast along with great local, ethnic and traditional food three times a day, served by a very attentive staff? Viking tour escorts guided us toward all the sights that Moscow, St. Petersburg and all other places along the way had to offer. Visits to a local home in Uglich and the Governor’s house in Yaroslavl were especially interesting (and we have the photos to prove it), and all the palaces we saw; “it’s good to be king.” We are hooked on Viking. See you in Bordeaux in 2014!

ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS

We recently returned from our Waterways of the Tsars cruise on Viking Truvor. It was absolutely fabulous. Everyone from the crew, service staff, tour guides, the entire Viking team were intent on assuring all passengers were well taken care of. The food was excellent, the tour guides were exceptionally knowledgeable and didn't hesitate to include a bit of humor. We enjoyed our cruise so much, we just booked your Grand European Tour. Thank you Viking and the Truvor team for a job well done.

BIG KISSES TO ALL VIKING STAFF

French Canadian: Nous avons jouis de tous les éléments organisés par la compagnie. Les guides de St-Pétersburg ont été des plus compétents et informatifs. L’équipage du navire se sont montrer des plus chaleureux, surtout au resto. Des gros bisous aux suivants de l’équipage.

English translation: We enjoyed all the elements organized by the company. The St. Petersburg guides were most competent and informative. The ship’s crew was very warm, especially at the restaurant. Big kisses to all Viking staff.

THE SIGHTS WERE MAGNIFICENT

What a terrific trip! I can’t imagine a better way to see this key corner of Russia than with Viking River Cruises. The sights were magnificent and the Viking staff was tremendous. There is one tip I want to pass on. Consider spending an afternoon on your own between tours. In St. Petersburg, we left the group (told everyone including our escort first) after the Hermitage tour and walked to the nearby Church of the Spilled Blood and the Russian Museum. We had dinner on our own and then rejoined our group at the entrance of the theater for the included show. It was well worth it to get in some additional sightseeing; just make sure you have the energy and interest and don’t mind exploring on your own.

VIKING SHOULD BE PROUD

We wanted to take a moment and let you know what an enjoyable experience it was to take your Waterways of the Tsars cruise. The ship was spotless, the food was excellent and the staff was superb. Viking, as a company, should be proud of the way they have put everything together, particularly the little details that help the passengers stay at ease.

OUR FIFTH CRUISE WITH VIKING

This was our fifth cruise with Viking, and we still say Viking is the best. The crew always goes out of their way for the traveler. We keep telling all of our friends about what a great job Viking does.

ENTIRELY NEW PERSPECTIVE

A wonderful Program Director, great chef and a very helpful hotel manager headed an outstanding staff that made our trip through Russia memorable. The tour guides were skilled, knowledgeable and gave us an entirely new perspective on a very complex history. Thank you, Viking!
