I have read here some recommendation about how to get to St Petersburg from the Airport. I am set on taking the Taxi. I know I should not take the unofficial taxi (whatever they are) and stick with the official who do the ride for about 25 Euro (set price?) and that I can grab them at the Airport
But I just read in the Frommer's guidebook that ``Official Cabs are often rare``, and that I should call in advance the Official Airport Cab Company at 812/312-0022.
Is it really necessary? This is for my mom who does speak Russian and will be arriving around 7 PM or so this upcoming Friday. And doesn't have a cell phone (But I do and I guess I could call ahead of time. But how early)
Thanks for any recommendation. I am getting reaaly confused about what to do.
