  1. I wouldn't put it strongly as 'lying', but I'm sure they are keen to promote their tours in any way they can! I'm getting lots of reassurance that the city based companies are kosher, the issue is now about which one to use...!!
  2. We are booked to go to the Baltic (including St Petersburg) with Celebrity this summer, but would rather book our own shore excursions than buy the 'off the peg' ones offered by the company. We have found several tour operators that claim to be 'visa free' in that we won't need to obtain a visa from the Russian Embassy (very slow, very expensive, and trips to the London based consulate required), but their claim doesn't chime with the rhetoric produced by Celebrity, whose rules and regulations pass all the responsibility for visas squarely onto the passengers (apart from on trips supplied by them, of course!). I've used the tour company Viator before, in other parts of the world, so I am inclined to believe their reassurance that it's all under control, but wanted to find out if other visitors to St Petersburg have used them, and whether visas were an issue? Many thanks Joanthan S
