Vladivostok City Tour

September 26, 2019 – We arrive at our final destination, Vladivostok, at 8:30am this morning and meet our delightful guide, Dennis. We’ve traveled through 8 time zones over 9,000 kilometers to this beautiful port city. Our beautiful weather continues as we tour the city before checking in at the only 5-star hotel in the city.
