FAQ

I am not a student, can I participate in your trips?

Yes, of course, we welcome everyone! Please feel free to join us regardless your age/occupation.

What is included in your price?

Our price includes all ferry tickets, 2-way bus from the harbor to the city center, 2 nights in the hostel in St.Petersburg + 2 free breakfasts and a 3-day sightseeing tour in St.Petersburg with local guide. You will only pay for lunches/dinners, public transport (which is very cheap!) and museum tickets.

How can I pay for the trip?

We don't require any prepayment! These trips are based on mutual trust. We trust you and don't ask to pay something in advance. We pay for the ferry and hostel for you and you pay us when we meet in St.Petersburg. Therefore, as soon as you send us your passport information it means that you are 100% sure that you take the trip.

How long in advance shoud I book a trip?

We advise you to book a trip at least 2 weeks in advance, so we could guarantee a place for you. However, even if it is less than 2 weeks, we will do our best to accommodate you, so DO ask our booking manager for a free spot.

What documents do I need in order to participate in your visa-free trip?

You ONLY need your valid passport. Your European ID won't work as Russia is not a part of EU. If you are not from EU you will also need a multi-entry Schengen visa or a EU residence permit.

Where can I see the whole program?

You can find our complete program in "Trip Info" section. If you feel that there is something else that you'd like to visit, then please let us know and we will do our best to fit it in.
