We used Alla last month ( see my review for NCL Sun) and had excellent treatment. We couldn't fault them in any way. Jacquie.

Why not try Alla and Red Oktober - they all have excellent reviews. Denrus hve the contract to provide the tours for P & O so they may decline to take you on (though I have heard that this no longer applies) .

We have just come back from the Baltic on P&O Oriana and did the 2 day value tour with Denrus. There were no problems booking and the 2 days were excellent - only 7 of us on the minibus with a superb guide. We saw much more than the majority of P&O passengers and could not fault Denrus in the slightest. Highly recommended from all aspects, booking, communication, tour, lunches everything. Hope this helps.

Thanks for your reply. My wife and I have now booked the Denrus 2 day excursion. A couple of further questions please. From reading the Denrus documentation it would appear that US dollars are acceptable in Russia, is this the case or did you need to obtain Roubles? Is tipping allowed for the guides and, if so, do they prefer dollars or roubles?

Do You Have A Bucket List?

By Gail Ryan

Gail Ryan's blog

Do you have a bucket list? If so, what’s on it?Until a few years ago I don’t think I had ever heard this term, had you? I think my first recollection was when I watched a film starring Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman about two characters that fate brings together in a hospital room and they discuss the things they want to do before they die.There are loads of thing that you can have on your list – it does necessarily have to be about holidays, but I think the majority of ...
