I would like to know if it's possible to reserve individual tours from the Oceania without doing it in advance. Do you think that if you wait and make a decision on the day of the tours you could be shut out? Is it necessary to reserve in advance for St-Petersburg? I do not want to do the 3 days tour
You may have your answer by now, but if you try to tour Russia by yourself you will need an individual visa which runs well over $100 and even then the tour prices charged by the Russians are very expensive based on my experience on a recent cruise which included St Petersburg in June of this year.
