What exactly do you mean by "solve the VISA situation?" Are you looking for a tour that will help you get a Russian visa?

We loved the two days we spent with Red October.

Another similar company is DenRus.

If you tour with either one, you do not need to get an individual visa because they get you a group one--but it is onbly good when you are with them, and will not allow you to wander around on your own, should that be your interest.

You do not need to book a tour or even book and pay for hotels. What you need is an invitation from a tour company and a confirmation of a hotel booking, but you only pay for the papers at a cost of between 30 and 50$. Once you have your invitation and confirmation, which are official Russian documents you can then apply for the visa.

MNPAGES,

I took Baltic cruise last summer. I used www.RussianVisaGuide.com. They provided me with all visa formalities including so called voucher, consulate fee, and all professional help on visa registration upon arrival for just $154. I could not find a better deal on the net.

If you forward my email to them when contacting, they will offer $10 referral discount to you.

Have a nice time in St. Petersburg. It is one of the most beatiful cities in europe.

Regards,
Marco
