Stone - Answered a Question by Bartle (19 Jan 09 18:18)

Hi, I assume the three main Russian tour companies that you've looked at are; DenRus, Red October and Alla Tour. If you look at the website for Alla Tour - www.alla-tour.com and go to the message board, you will find that there is already a message from someone travelling on Constellation in May. They are looking for others to make up a group. I can recommend the evening excursion and concert at the Hermitage, it's opened especially for a selected few and you avoid the massive daytime crowds. Good luck - Jan .

We did a two day tour with Alla-Tour last September. There was no need to make up a party prior to the tour - we just booked for the two of us and Alla allocated us to a group of approximately 12 people on the first morning. This worked very well with a mixture of nationalities - American, Canadian, Brazilian and we thoroughly enjoyed their company.

Truth Behind Your Cruise Itinerary

By Emily Watts

Emily Watts's blog

Experienced cruisers will already know by looking at an itinerary how far the ports are from the main city and towns. However those that are new to cruising may be a bit miffed when booking a cruise that visits Paris or Rome they are in fact in some cases two hours away. With Paris being the capital of France you know the only water that surrounds it is the Seine. I think the most shocking one that appears is Berlin, people are thinking this will be lovely to visit but in reality it is just ...
