To celebrate the 250th Anniversary of the founding of the first German colonies along the Volga River in Russia, Volga German Tours is offering three tours to the Volga German colonies in 2017!

  • Tour A: June 2-11
  • Tour B: August 4-13
  • Tour C: August 11-21

You pick the dates that work best for you, and we will design that tour around the colonies that you want to visit! [A list of colonies is available under the “Tours” tab above, then “Tour Descriptions” – and also on the Tour Application Form.]

All tours are open to the public and will be led by Drs. Brent Mai and Mila Koretnikov. All three tours contain the same elements, but Tour C (August 11-21) will also visit Red Square in Moscow between plane changes.

Only 30 people will be taken on each tour.

In August 2016, we took two groups on tours just similar to those offered now.  Read the testimonials from some of those participants.
