With a recent change in regulations on tourist visas to Russia, it is now possible to visit St. Petersburg without having to organise a Russia Tourist visa. So long as you are travelling to Russia for less than 72 hours, you do not need to get a Russian tourist visa.
Our visa-free Russia tours take in the sites of St Petersburg and also include a visit (via ferry) to neighbouring Finland and Estonia - so you can explore the two fascinating European capitals of Helsinki and Tallinn, each with a distinct character of their own, as well a have a tour of St Petersburg.
If our visa-free Russia tours don't quite hit the spot, take a look at our classic seletion of Russia Group Tours here. We have group-based short tours of St Petersburg or Moscow, a classic twin-city St. Petersburg and Moscow tour, and tours that take in a bit of provincial Russia too, giving you a real flavour of the country. And beyond European Russia, we have a selection of tours that also visit Yekaterinburg, home of the Romonovs, as well as Ukraine and Uzbekistan. You will find more details here.
