MINI CRUISES

By Parsons, Bristol on 31st Jul 2013
Never having cruised before my very good friend persuaded me to try a mini cruise to Bruges. In the end there were 10 of us who went on the cruise. I had to share a cabin with 2 others which was not as bad as expected because we all had a hilarious time...  Read More >>

Question

Report
I shall be visiting St Petersburg on the 4th and 5th September aboard Artemis. I've read about the tour company DenRus who organise tours in St Petersburg (and othe places).
Has anyone experience of these tours and can you give me details of good and/or bad experiences?
Many thanks

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?

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)
