Pulkovo2 airport terminal in St Petersburg to 31 Pier...

Hello:

Can anyone help me regarding transfer from airport to the cruise port in 31 Pier Utkina Zavod in St Petersburg. There will be 4 of us travelling and the cruiseline charges over $84.00 per person per way. It is a little expansive isn't it. Hence we did not choose to take the transfer with the cruiseline. We are doing a river cruise on the MS RUSS. Do we need to book transfers ahead of time or can we get it after we landed in St Petersburg and get it at the airport.

Also how much should the cab fare be? Looking forward to anyone experience regarding transfers.

If you land during the day not at night then after you go through the passport control and grab your luggage you come out into the Arrival Hall. There you will see the stand with the sign 'Official Taxi' (to your left). It is the official taxi company. There is a list of prices which depends on the distance.

You can order the taxi there, you get the price right away.

The price should be about 1.000 Rubles (35 USD) per car.

Have a pleasant journey!

Have you heard of that company and do you know how honest this company is? Do you also think we need to book in advance? I will take your advise, whatever you think is better for us since this is the first time travelling to Russian. Someone also mention using the Metro to get us to the Port. What are your thoughts on that? We will be landing there around 3pm. Is that rush hour traffic then? Waiting for your reply.

You do not need any transfer company, just get the taxi from the dispatcher right in the terminal. They are safe and reliable...the price is agreed on before getting into the car. If you have a lot of luggage a taxi van might be needed, so it might be a little more than the car price of 800Rubles.

Why are you wanting to complicate things working with 3rd parties on the web who might not show up, and why contract with someone from Moscow for a taxi ride in St Petersburg? The phone number you cite is Moscow....sounds like a really bad idea.

Hi Stanj:

Thank you so very much for your reply. We will do just that as per yours and Eugena's advise, get the taxi when we are there at the airport. Here is another question, when the river cruise ends in Moscow, we will be staying for 2 extra days at the Izmailovo Gamma-Delta hotel, what is the best way to get from the port to the hotel? Then after the two days in Moscow we will be heading home and the flight is at 9:30AM, when should we be leaving for the airport in Moscow and what is the best mode of transportation to get there? Once again, thank you for all the info that you are giving. Much appreciated.

Can't say anything about Moscow, but again - use the dispatched taxi in St.Petersburg. It is easy, less expensive and comfortable. Make sure you understand the price before you sit in the car and make sure the price you are quoted corresponds with the price-list on the stand near the dispatcher.

Will the official taxi accept American dollars or credit cards, what is the customery tip in Russia for the taxi driver and can that also be added to the taxi fare on the credit card?

Thank you.

Paying in foreign currency is strictly illegal in Russia, credit cards might be accepted but it's unlikely in this case.

> what is the customery tip in Russia for the taxi driver

Zero.

hi amy c,

>>Any SUBWAY from LED airport to the pier?

There's no subway station at the airport, you have to take bus/mini-bus to get to the nearest metro station "Moskovsksya"

As of last summer (things might change for the next summer but I doubt): The nearest (to the Pier31\Solyanoi Pier) subway station is "Proletarskaya" (green line, south) it seems (according to the Inet info) that no transportation from there to the Pier. However, you can get to the Pier (according to Inet info):

- from subway station "Lomonosovskaya"("Ломоносовская") bus № 8, 119 and 476

- from subway station "Ploshchad' Alexandra Nevskogo"(«Пл. Александра Невского») taxi-minibus № 8

- from subway station "Ulitsa Dybenko" («Улица Дыбенко») taxi-minibus № 365А.

>>How much taxi cost to both transfer?

for Saint-Petersburg it would be around 1000-1200 rub, take official airport taxi to avoid overpricing. With a goupe of 6 people and some luggage I think it would be more convenient to take a taxi (probably 2 cars, I don't know if they have mini-vans).

As far as Moscow info - you'd better ask it at Moscow forum
