St Petersburg -tour including the synagogue

We have registerd (but not paid) with Denrus, Alla, and Anastasia tour companies for the following: We (2 of us) will be on Celebrity Eclipse June 26th.tour (be in St. Petersburg July 3-4 and are looking for tour-mates for the following:

..A 2 day tour of St Petersburg which will include all of the usual sites but ALSO include a visit to the synagogue. We'd prefer a smaller group - up to 8 -10 to lower the cost. It will be a bit more money than the fixed tours listed on each tour sites which cannot be altered.

For now, we have advertised on Cruise Critic and the dedicated site for our particular cruise.

We have not received any replies yet but have until June 3rd to jump on another tour if the one we want doesn't materialize with additional people-- and give S.P. tour guides time to get our VISAs in order.

NOTE: One person did respond to say the synagogue was a "don't miss" - she had just taken the tour

Anyone interested - please respond.

We are in SPB just before you. We planned our 3 days with Den Rus and very pleased. Th synagogue was a must for us, along with the Russian Museum. They did a a very professional job of giving us the special interests stops that we wanted.

Keep posting on CC. Maybe someone will see it that is just coming on board.

Thanks for the good wishes and good info. You are the second person to have told me that the synagogue is a must see!! Too bad you aren't on OUR cruise!

We have posted on CC Rollcall, for our cruise and on a dedicated site specific to our cruise (that one of the travelers designed.) SO I'm crossing my fingers.

Maybe someone will see YOUR post and decide to come along!

PS - My hubby went to UT Chattanooga!! (although we are from and live in Philly)

quick question - you said to "keep posting on CC" How often. I figured it does get buried with newer posts--but don't know how frequently to do it again. Please advise.

Thanks!

It seems that people requesting tour mates post about every 3 weeks. New people are coming along all the time.

You need to tell your husband that he would not believe how Chattanooga has grown. Amazing transformation. Come back and see us.

If you are going with DenRus ask them for a list of people who have wanted quotes for the same itinerary, they can provide a list of email addresses of your ship mates who want the same tour, for the purpose of forming a larger group.

They have a system of listing those interested people but do not form groups of strangers since there are questions of personality compatibility that only the members of a group can decide.
