2 May 2021: Due to current political turmoil, it is with great sadness that we must cancel the 2021 tour to the Volga German colonies. All deposits are being returned. We are working on the schedule for a 2022 tour and will post it as soon as possible. The tour in 2022 will be limited to 30 people. To be placed on a waiting list for the anticipated 2022 tour (without obligation), please contact Dr. Brent Mai at brentmai@volgagermantours.com (telephone: 971.322.8124).

To celebrate the 250th Anniversary of the founding of the first German colonies along the Volga River in Russia, Volga German Tours is offering a tour to the Volga German colonies in 2021!

  • Tour dates: 31 July 2021 – 15 August 2021

The tour is open to the public and will be led by Drs. Brent Mai and Mila Koretnikov.

Only 30 people will be taken on the tour.

Since 2016, we have taken eleven groups (almost 250 people) on tours similar to the one offered for 2021.  Read the testimonials from some of those participants.
