Contact Alla Ushakova at Alla tours in St Pete.firstname.lastname@example.org, or telephone 07 911 932 6633. We did a two day independant tour in St Petersberg last year with Alla and everything was sorted including camera passes. We were met off the boat(NCL) and driven to all the places we want'd to go. Our guide was the lovely Angelika, who spoke perfect English. No problems at all. At the end of the second day we were presented with a 3 hour DVD of St Pete. by Alla. Far cheaper than the ship's tours and we saw far more than anyone else we spoke to. Enjoy.
