Is anyone of you interested in sharing the costs of a helicopter tour? Me and my boyfriend are going to Petersburg next week and I want to surprise him with a helicopter tour. Unfortunately, the tour is too expensive for me and I can't afford the costs all on my own (; We would fly with a 3-person helicopter, the price is always the same: 23.500 rubles (I already got an discount of 2500 rubels). That means that if I would find one more who would like to take the tour with us, the price would be about 7.840 rubles. I would really, really love to take the heli-tour, because I think it's a lifetime experience. And what's more: the ruble is currently down - that means that this tour probably will never be that "cheap" again (;
Many thanks in advance Judith

1. As to which area (or district) will be good for us to stay in both these cities?
2. How can we arrange Minivan for us 9, including for the 2 airport to hotel transfer in Moscow. Or will regular on the spot taxi/transfer from airport be better?
3. How can we tour the cities for 2 days each. We would prefer private minivan with English speaking driver cum guide? Any reliable site or personal suggestion?
4. How do we go to the Rail Stations in the early mornings (reach station by 6 am) of 25 May (Moscow) and 27 May (St Petersburg)?
5. How to get Visa invite if we book tickets online with option to pay at hotel?
I want to travel to Russia soon as a tourist. Does anyone know whether tourists can still use their credit/debit cards in Russia without any problems? I am a little concerned after reading about the new National Payment System they have in Russia. Has anyone had any problems while traveling there?
We are 4 people that intend to travel through Belarus, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia and into Russia (St Petersburg and onto Moscow). Could anyone advise me on the best way to obtain a Visa for Russia. There seems to be loads of sites on the net but its difficult to tell which are genuine. We are UK citizens. I think I will also require a visa for Belarus?
Heading to Russia in a Month, spending half the time in Moscow and the other in St. Petersburg. Looking for recommendations for favorite "local restaurants" as to not get stuck in the tourist trap. Not intimidated travelers by any means so any options are great options! thanks!
I will be taking the Aero express to the train station and on the map the hotel appears to be over a mile from the station.
Normally a taxi would be the way to go but there are many warnings about taking a taxi from outside the station.
Hello friends ,
I'd appreciate your kind help.
I'll be travelling with a company of 20 family members and friends from Moscow To St Petersburg on August 05 . Most of my group are senior couples above 60 years of age . We're travelling on a strict budget , that's why we thought the overnight trains might be the cheapest option . However, we have real concerns that the night train ride might turn out too wearisome and exhausting for our old age to sustain , especially that our lively tourist program would start right after we arrive in St.Petersburg . We want to make sure that the train would allow us a good night's sleep and , no less important , keep our privacy ( i.e. a closed compartment with comfortable 2 bed for each couple ).
I'd appreciate your recommendation for a cheap , comfortable and privacy- guaranteed overnight train ride between the two capitals .
Thank you very much
Hello VT members. We are planning to visit Moscow & St Petersburg in May/June 2015. We are planning to stay in studios via airbnb as we will stay 6 days in each city. However, the studio owners could not be able to supply us the invitation letter for visa application. Does anyone knows how we can get such invitation letter? Thanks in advance for all the help you can offer.
Are there any special conditions for UK Passport holders with a valid Russian visa taking internal flights. Mainly I'm concerned about how long before the flight I would need to arrive at the airport for check in.
