For the first time Russians will be offered package tours to Gambia
For the first time on the market Coral Travel tour operator will open direct charter flights to Gambia, the flight program will start on 30 September.
According to Marina Makarkova, the Head of Coral Travel Public Relations Department, the flight program will be performed by Royal Flight airline and will last until March 28, 2019. Frequency of flights - every 12 days.
The duration of tours to Gambia is 10-12 days. The price for a package tour for 12 days with a departure on September 30 with accommodation on BB basis starts from 55 thousand Rubles ($ 875) per person.
Customers of the tour operator will be able to stay in Gambia in one of about 40 hotels. Most of them are 3-4-stars and offer half board (breakfast and dinner), about 20% of hotels operate on all-inclusive system. In addition, there are two 5-stars hotels in the country.
According to tour operators' estimates, the annual tourist flow to Gambia from Russia does not exceed a hundred people, more than half of them are independent travelers. One of the limiting factors for increasing tourist flow from Russia is the lack of direct flights. Probably, the charter program of Coral Travel will help to solve this problem.
