I am not a student, can I participate in your trips?
Yes, of course, we welcome everyone! Please feel free to join us regardless of your age/occupation.
What is included in your price?
Our price includes all ways ferry tickets, 2 ways bus from the harbor to the city center, 2 nights in the hostel in St.Petersburg+ 2 free breakfasts and sightseeing tour during 3 whole days. You will only pay for lunches/dinners, public transport (which is very cheap!) and museum entrance fees.
How can I pay for 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 by our own and you give us the money when we meet in St.Petersburg only. Therefore, as soon as you send us your passport inforamation it means that you are 100% sure that you take the trip.
How long in advance shall I book your trip?
We advise our guests to book any trip at least 2 weeks prior to the start of your trip in order we could guarantee a place for you with 100% confidence. Of course, it is worth asking even if it is less than 2 weeks, and we will try our best to accommodate you as well, but in that case we cannot guarantee that there will be a spare place.
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. Therefore, 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 programme?
You can read about our full programme whether on our website under Trip Info or in our facebook group Open Your Russia under Files. 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.
