SCHEDULE OF A FERRY

What is departure and arrival time of a ferry?
Please check the ferry schedule.
 
I’d like to depart from Helsinki but come back to Tallinn (any other city), is it possible?
Please note according to the schedule of ferries and visa free rules your visa free tour must be Helsinki – St. Petersburg – Helsinki. However, you are free to add any ferry trip before and after Helsinki: for example, after returning to Helsinki from Russia you may continue on the same ferry to Tallinn, you may also start in Stockholm, then come by ferry to Helsinki and join the visa free tour. We can arrange any ferry route for you, please contact us for options and ferry schedules.
 

TRANSFERS

Are Helsinki airport transfers included in a tour?
No transfers are included in Helsinki for the following reasons: prebooking a car costs much more than taking a taxi at the airport (so we do not want you to pay a higher price for your tour), and secondly the ferry terminal is easily accessible by public transport, which does not cost much. We provide detailed information on how to get to the port terminal in Helsinki in your final trip documents. Note: all transfers in Russia are included in the tour cost.
 

VISAS

Is it true that I don’t need a visa for your visa free tours?
Yes, it is. Please check visa free rules.
 

YOUR COMFORT

Will there be some time for rest when travelling to Moscow?
For your comfort when travelling to Moscow on a visa free package we have arranged a centrally located hotel accommodation which will be available to you after guided excursions in Moscow (normally finish at about 4 pm.). You will be able to have some rest and take a shower before your return trip to St. Petersburg.
 
Please note you will not be able to check immediately upon your arrival in Moscow, however you will still be able to leave your luggage and have breakfast at the hotel.
