I would like some feedback on traveling to St Petersburg and Moscow.

Was there a problem obtaining the visa? Did you feel safe traveling alone through Moscow and St Petersburg. Any special issues I should be aware of. I'm traveling as a solo on a Tour.

    Took this trip several years ago. We felt safe everywhere. You will be visiting tourist areas which are always crowded. You will be a Tauck group most of the time, and I would use the same cautions when alone in any big city if you are out after dark.

    Thank you Sherry...I appreciate the response. Did you find it cumbersome to get the visa?

    to Kollage: I don't remember having any trouble, but we did use the method suggested by Tauck. Its more expensive, but a lot more convenient. On other trips sometimes we do the visas on our own, sometimes we let Tauck do it, whatever works!
