Study offers of travel agencies your chosen route. Decide how many days will take your sailing along the Volga River, the town in which you sit on the ship, etc. If you wish, you can buy a tour only at one end, for example, from Samara to Yaroslavl or from Nizhny Novgorod to Astrakhan, etc. This variant is the ideal solution for those who want to combine a trip on the water with sightseeing not only port city, but also its surroundings.
Before you choose a boat and view all vessels plying on this route. Read the reviews about them on the Internet or ask the opinion of friends and acquaintances who have already traveled to them. Pay attention to the comfort of the ship and its cabins. Learn about the system of discounts on tickets, check about additional paid services on board ships, ask excursion programs in cities with parking. All this will help you to optimally calculate their finances and, if desired, to come up with a plan trips on a given locality.
But whichever route you choose, at some boat or sail, you are waiting for the amazing coastal scenery, beautiful corners of Russian nature and, moreover, interesting sights and historical monuments of culture in the Volga cities.
