The travel experts at the Seniors Holiday Travel Club have organised another China Silk Road & Russia Waterways Cruise package, exclusively for their travel club members.
The past nine tours all sold out and the next escorted group tour, departing on 6 June 2016, is already over half full. This 25-day tour is amazing value, priced from just $7190 including your airfares, air taxes and gratuities. And the travel experts at the Seniors Holiday Travel Club have improved the tour for next year, adding in the magnificent Terracotta Warriors at Xi’An.
You’ll fly from Australia to Guangzhou in China, to begin your Silk Road tour. The tour includes the fabulous Terracotta Warriors at Xi’An (the eighth wonder of the world), Tang Dynasty Singing and Dancing Show, Erdaoqiao International Grand Bazaar, Mogao Grottoes, Jiayuguan Great Wall and Xuanbi Great Wall, Zhongshan Bridge and the Ancient Water Tankers.
Then you’ll fly from Urumqi to Moscow for a night, then board your high speed train to St Petersburg for three nights. During your time in St Petersburg, you’ll visit the Smolny Convent, Tavrichesky Palace, the Summer Palace, Palace Embankment, the Winter Palace, buildings of exchange and Nevsky Prospect, plus enjoy a walking tour of St Peter and Paul’s Fortress. The Winter Palace is home to the Hermitage Museum, the largest collection of Russian art in the world. Optional tours and shows are also available.
Then you’ll enjoy a five-day cruise from St Petersburg to Moscow via Mandrogi, Kizhi Island, Goritsy, Yasoslavl and Uglich. This will be followed by three nights in Moscow, where you’ll get to visit Red Square, Leningradskaya and Tverskaya Streets, Novodevichiy Convent (exterior), KGB (exterior), GUM and the Cathedral of Christ the Saviour. You’ll also visit inside the Kremlin – a living museum of Russia’s history. Optional tours and shows are available. You’ll also fly overnight to Guangzhou, where you’ll visit Chimlong Safari Park and Chimlong Circus night show.
