Agents' Choice 2018

Discovering Russia

CG Journeys recently hosted a fam trip for Canadian and American travel agents to Russia. Partnering with the Federal Agency for Tourism of the Russian Federation, LOT Airlines, Ritz Carlton Hotel in Moscow and Belmond Grand Hotel Europe, 12 agents from across Canada and the US were able to discover Russia’s extraordinary history and culture featuring Moscow and St. Petersburg on CG Journeys’ exclusive eight-day tour, helping them to promote and sell the destination with confidence. “Our local hosts displayed unparalleled Russian hospitality and ensured that North American travel agents were inspired by two Russian capitals,” says Yury Manukhov, business development director of CG Journeys. “Russia is set to see an increase in visitor arrivals over the next four years fueled by the hosting of major sporting events, this being the perfect opportunity to highlight Russia as a tourism destination.”
