SHORT VISIT TO ST PETERSBURG - TOURS ETC..
Kevin M - Easytourist - Posted on 01/04/2014 - 17h32  M Kevin

WE WILL BE STOPPING OFF IN ST PETERSBURG FOR 2 DAYS AS PART OF A CRUISE IN MAY.
THE CRUISE COMPANY'S CHARGES FOR TRIPS, VISITS TO PALACES, MUSEUMS, ETC SEEM EVEN MORE EXORBITANT THAN USUAL AND PERSONAL VISAS ARE AN ARM AND A LEG.
BUT I UNDERSTAND THERE ARE SOME VERY GOOD LOCAL OFFERINGS, USING THE CHEAPER VISAS THAT SUCH COMPANIES CAN UTILISE. HOWEVER, I CAN FIND NO LOCAL COMPANIES THAT SEEM TO SPECIALISE IN SUCH TOURS.
DO YOU HAVE ANY INFORMATION ON SUCH COMPANIES AND DO THEY PICK YOU UP FROM THE DOCKS OR HOW DO THEY HANDLE THE VISA PROBLEM?

    Thanks for your St. Petersburg visa query Kevin. May I first ask in which country you are a citizen? Depending on the answer you may only need to register with the local authorities.

    However, if you are only staying for a couple days, as far as I am aware, you car epermitted to stay in St. Petersburg for up to 72 hours provided you are sleeping on the cruise ship bringing you to the city.

    I'm afarid I cannot recommend any specific tour companies, however your tour operator should be able to recommend some, even if they themselves operate tours.

    Hope this helps!

    Have a great trip Kevin,

    Neil

    If you're looking for a tour, there is one good option. I took a private tour in Peterhof Palace in October by [https://petersburg.expert/tour/peterhof-palace/][1]. It was amazing. Especially I liked the interior, it was majestic. Then we walked through the parks. It took about one hour and then they deliver you by car right to your hotel room. Really recommend this one!

    I advise you to get on the train, this is the most budget option. A ticket can be purchased here [url]https: //www.russiantrain.com[/url] I have been travelling with the help of this company for several years and am very pleased with their service.

    My friends suggested me the same places to visit for the kevin trip but i would say that we need to go on a solo trip to do many things as uk writers did a essay about traveling that money can return but time wont be.
    so you need to think about alot of things which can make a big difference in your life though.
