Please tell me something about your Company.

The Radisson Royal Flotilla Cruise has become the post card of the city of Moscow.

We are equipped with 10 snow-white yachts offering all year round navigation along the Moscow River.  By cruising with us, you may discover the magic of every season in Moscow and enjoy a full service during these tours. Introducing brand new yachts with restaurant and bar services in 2009, we brought an innovative approach to 85 years lasting tradition of Moscow river cruises that were available only during summer season. We make sure our guests are treated with the best quality of service, respecting the highest criteria of Radisson brand. You can find on board some unusual combinations of high-cuisine prepared by the famous Chef Sergei Maslow, who lend his craft to French Chef Alain Ducasse. We have a variety of thematic tours suitable to any type of guests. Here you can enjoy romantic cruises, live music cruises, etc. Travelers with children can also relax and have fun while leaving their children to our animators on board, providing them with different interactive programs, such New Year’s Fairytale.

What are the most interesting sites visible during your tours?

Radisson river cruise is a great way to avoid traffic jams and enjoy the views of some of the most scenic sites but also to find out what to explore further. Being a historical heart of the city, Kreml is of course one of the must see spots during our tours. Some other interesting places are Cathedral of Christ the Saviour, Novodevichy Convent, Peter I Monument, etc. as well as nice parks and modern infrastructure projects, making these views even more outstanding.

What is the number of French and foreign clients?

Overall number of French range from 5 to 10% depending of the year. I can say that foreign tourist inflow has increased in the recent period, accounting for 40% in 2016.

What are the actions that you take in order to promote your services among French Riviera and Foreign visitors?

We take part in a large number of international fairs and congresses presenting Moscow. This is also a good opportunity to develop partnerships with local tour operators. These tour operators are usually providing full information about Moscow and its reach touristic offer that has impressively changed over recent years.Our advertising is available in tourist guides and visa centers.  As an integral part of Moscow tourist offer Radisson Flotilla boats have become one of the city symbols while hitting the front pages of promotional bulletins.
