Travellers to Russia have to mind the days-off at particular sights, as museums and other tourist attractions in Saint-Petersburg are closed one day of the week and on some additional days during the high season and holidays (Hermitage and Peterhof (Monday), Catherine's Palace (Tuesday), St Issac's Cathedral, Peter and Paul Fortress, Spilled Blood (Wednesday), etc.)

Note also that, if you wish to explore St. Petersburg on your own while not accompanied by one of our guides, you will need to secure an independent visa.

Please be aware that cruise lines occasionally mislead passengers by telling them that they are not allowed to disembark the ship in St. Petersburg unless they are on an excursion purchased through the cruise line. In addition, the cruise lines also sometimes tell passengers that they cannot disembark the ship until the passengers on the cruise lines' excursions have done so first. This is incorrect, and you are free to exit the ship as soon as passengers start to disembark because Russian law states that a cruise ship cannot hold passengers onboard against their will as long as they have the proper documents. In order to clear immigration, you will need to bring along: 1) Your passport; 2) A photocopy of the picture page of your passport; and 3) A copy of your tour tickets. 4) An immigration form passed out to all guests on the ship. We will provide you with your tour tickets as part of the documents we e-mail to you after you make a tour booking.

Dress:

If you plan to visit a religious or memorial site, shoulders and knees must be covered. Comfortable flat-soled walking shoes, sunglasses and sunscreen are recommended.
