Mobility and ADA Compliance

There is neither a minimum nor a maximum permitted age for these tours. However,  Russia is not subject to the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). We will be going to a rural part of Russia, and it is very important that each person be able to get around under his/her own power. We will be doing a lot of walking. The ground will be uneven and walkers (with or without wheels) and motorized chairs and scooters are not advised.

There is no elevator in the hotel in Zhirnovsk (Tour D only) where all rooms are above ground level. The tour bus will not have a lift. Because assistance at the hotels cannot be guaranteed, each person will be responsible for porting their own luggage at all stops. In most cases, if you are tired, you will be able to remain on the bus during a stop.

Once the tour has started, Volga German Tours reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to determine whether or not a tour participant is physically capable of participating in any given activity during the tour. Should a participant be excluded from a particular activity due for physical reasons, the participant will not be compensated for such exclusion.
