Independent Shore Excursions in St Petersburg
Concerned about the high cost of shore excursions in St Petersburg, Russia? Worried about Russian visas?
Don’t worry – our local team in St Petersburg is accredited to act as a shore excursion agency in the city of St Petersburg Russia. This means that we can supply excursions to passengers disembarking from cruise liners visiting St Petersburg and such visits do NOT require a Russian visa, subject to minimum 2 passengers travelling together.
It is important to note that passengers on Baltic Cruises are only allowed to visit St Petersburg without a Russian visa if travelling ashore with an accredited shore excursion agency such as ours. The stipulations are simple: passengers travelling ashore must remain with our guide and transportation provided by the accredited agency for all their time in the city and return to the ship with the guide. We, as the agent, are responsible for ensuring that you return to the ship. Passengers must retain their passport with them at all times.
Passengers wishing to visit St Petersburg independently must obtain a Russian visa. If the cruise ship remains in Russian waters for the duration of your visit, a single-entry Russian visa enables you to travel ashore independently.
We are able to provide competitively priced excursions in St Petersburg – and for those passengers wishing to obtain a Russian visa for independent exploration or onward travel, our UK Visa department can assist with visas, hotels, excursions, trains and onward travel.
