Default Shore Excursions St. Petersburg

My husband and I are booked for a Northern European Silverseas cruise in July. We want to do the shore excursions on our own, but we have been told that this is difficult to do in St. Petersburg. We can get a tourist visa before we leave home, but Arctur Travel (the agency that handles Silverseas' shore excursions) have e-mailed me to say that we will not be able to leave the port area where the ship docks on our own because taxis are not allowed to go into the area. Has anyone experienced shore excursions in St. Petersburg? Any suggestions or advice will be greatly appreciated.

I was in St. Petersburg with another line, and yes, what you were told is true. They really don't want you out there on your own. I gathered it's not safe for tourists to be out there on their own. Each day you get off the ship, you need to go through the Russian cutoms, and they actually check your documentation carefully. I recommend you book a private car and a driver with Silversea.
