Viking River Cruises Rolls Out Tours

Viking River Cruises has introduced Viking Tours, its first foray into the tour marketplace. Offering all-inclusive tour packages and extension programs, Viking Tours will be operated by the same Swiss management team who arrange its Viking River Cruises vacations. Tour guests will receive fully-escorted, all-inclusive tours with English-speaking guides, plus Viking Exclusives, which are in-depth city tours and unique excursions. The new product will be offered to select small groups on key 2006 dates. One new tour is the Baltic Voyage Tour, highlighting the coastal cities of Sweden, Finland's capital and two overnights in Russia. A Norwegian Expedition Tour will visit Norway's fjords, cities and fishing villages. Eastern European Adventure will focus on Warsaw, Krakow, and Bratislava. More tours will be added as the brand grows.
