Isn't the planning just so much fun! Exploring your options, figuring out what to do and when...love it! The pricing with Alla Tour is based on total number of people - so if you fill their van (total of 16 travelers, I think), the cost per person is less than if you limit the van to your group only. They take credit cards, you pay on the van when your tour starts (first day). In our group, we all agreed on a meeting time (early) to get in line to debark the ship, so were at the front of the line, and the Alla Tour guides were waiting with signs once through immigration into Russia.

Update: St. Petersburg, Russia, private tours [Re: aquamarine]

We just returned from a cruise on Norwegian Sun and booked a private tour for St. Petersburg with SPb Tours (http://spb-tours.com). It was wonderful! We did the 2 day tour with a guide and driver. It was cheaper than the ship's version of the same tour and there were only 4 of us on it!

I was surprised that the photo on the web site of Viktoria is actually a "real person." She met the groups who booked with her company right outside Customs. When the tour was over, she greeted each returning tour to find out how they liked the tours.
