Excursions on the rivers of Russia interested foreign tourists, who accounted for this year a third of the total number of travelers. Motor ships cruise operators Mosturflot, Infoflot and Vodohod are 80% full, the Interfax-Tourism news agency reported. Excursion tours, lasting 2-3 days, on weekends provide almost 100% occupancy of passenger motor ships. Recall that since the beginning of 2018, in accordance with the amendments to the Tax Code of the Russian Federation, excises on gasoline and diesel fuel have been increased, which is why tour operators engaged in cruising organize losses. It is expected that excursions of this kind will significantly increase in price in 2019.
