PAYMENT

Deposit is NOT required.

 

All currencies (Euro, USD, Rubles) are accepted for payment. According to the Russian banking regulation old or damaged banknotes are not accepted. This is the reason why we won’t be able to accept them either. New banknotes are highly appreciated. Thank You for understanding.

 

All the payments can be made during the last touring day by cash or credit card (if You pay with a credit card 3% is added for banking services).

LUNCH OPTIONS

We know that meals preferences can differ and therefore want to give YOU complete flexibility in choosing the optional meal plan. The following options are available:

 

  • Play-by-ear: Eat in any city bistro or cafe along the tour route (seating subject to availability). Average cost
  • Pre-arranged lunch: YOU reserve seats and certain menu in recommended restaurants in advance. This option helps YOU to save much time by having lunches already served when YOU arrive in a restaurant.
  • Lunch boxes might be provided by the ship or we can arrange them for You.

 

PHOTO PERMITS

One photo permit per couple is included.

 

EARLY ENTRANCES

 

You are welcome with the early admissions to the Hermitage and Catherine’s Palace.

There are advantages and disadvantages.

ADVANTAGES

  • You are starting the touring day earlier, so save time for other tours and visits
  • It  might be less crowded than during the regular entrance, however nobody can guarantee You empty museum (sometimes it is as crowded as during the regular time)

DISADVANTAGES

  • You pay double price for the tour
  • In the Hermitage during the early entrance there is only a certain way You can go (the museum doesn’t open the whole museum for the tour), so some of the halls will be opened only at 10.30 (official opening time of the museum)
  • Early entrance might be confirmed only one month before the tour

 

TIPPING Gratuities to the  guide and driver are not included in the price of the tour. In Russia it is usually 10% of the cost of a tour  and will be highly appreciated by Your personal assistants, however always remains at Your option.

PRIVATE TOUR. All tours are completely private. You'll get Your personal experienced tour guide, professional driver and private comfortable vehicle for the entire duration of Your tour. You will not have to join any tourist groups, unless You specifically require sharing Your trip and other people agree with this option.

Evening Optional Programms

St. Petersburg is the cultural capital of Russia. Don’t miss the opportunity to see Russian ballet or to enjoy an evening of Russian opera in one of the best theatres of St. Petersburg. We also highly recommend a visit to the Folk Show or a night boat trip along the famous canals. Or may be just to feel yourself an aristocrat – to have dinner in one of the former palaces of Russian royalty.
