But in order, to make your journey as pleasant as possible should be thorough approach to the choice of route and the shipping company. In this regard, it will help make the right choices, our team, it is for your convenience, wrote an article about boat trips on the rivers and canals of St. Petersburg, but the choice is always yours.
Excursions in rivers and channels SPB held since Soviet times, as well as the walking routes of St. Petersburg rivers and canals perform their function with the time of Peter.
Excursions on the rivers and canals of St. Petersburg organize shipping companies, most of whom have years of experience of waterway transportation in the past 20-25 years, and some companies went out of state structures. All of these components are added in modern industry water excursions and transportation in St. Petersburg, with its pluses and minuses.
The biggest plus is the fact, that different excursions on the rivers and channels of St. Petersburg is the brand of our city. And in recent years, the city government has been an active participant and assistant in charge of shipping companies, which aim to improve the quality of services. Today in St. Petersburg has about hundreds of shipping companies, from them about 10 big. They occupy a large part of the market. In the past few years in our city in the clear leaders left the shipping company "Neva Travel". Here we have this company and compare with all the other companies of our city according to various criteria and parameters.
1.Trips along the rivers and canals of St. Petersburg carried out on ships, what does it mean? Right! We must ask before choosing a company issues:
A) Is it safe journey?
B) The quality of ships and crew training?
AT) quality tours?
D) The frequency of excursions ( flight schedule).
D) convenience of payment ( online sales ,cashless payments ).
E) Refunds with unforeseen situations.
We begin to answer questions.
For, to the ship could go on inland waters of St. Petersburg as a passenger ship, he must have permission, obtained from river register. Every year in the rules of operation of ships, new additions, and only large shipping companies may comply with the requirements, imposed River Register, tk. all work to improve the condition of ships are time-consuming and costly. The state is interested in improving security in the waters of St. Petersburg. And these are not empty words! The town needs the influx of travelers and maximizing profits in tourism and Petersburg continues to improve its ranking as the tourist capital of Russia.
If you are a large shipping company- it means you are always in sight of the regulatory and supervisory authorities. That can allow a small company, consisting of the owner of the ship and captain concurrently and the sailor and guide in one face? This "luxury" major shipping companies can not afford. Unfortunately, company consisting of one or two ships very often simply "piracy" and without any permission can invite to excursions on the rivers and canals of the unequipped berths without any permitting documents, but below market prices.
We want to clarify, that major shipping companies- it is not the company, which has the most ships of the same class, and and, which has ships of different classes and berths in different parts of the city. In St. Petersburg, only "Neva Travel" and "Astra Marine" carry out regular flights to all existing directions and approaches to the organization of complex movements. There are still a few companies, ships which have more than one class and trying to organize their activities in a complex.
For, to a diverse fleet could operate and get all the permits required experts and shipyards. Only large companies can afford a team of professionals.
Only the largest shipping company can afford a structure as in Soviet times.
To the crew was professional, We need a captain-instructor, that takes exams at the contenders for the post of master or minder. Only large companies have a responsibility to the safety on the water than on paper, chief mechanical engineer, Supply et al separated. It seems to be simple and logical, but in order for everything to go off without a hitch it requires the efforts of many professionals, that small companies can not afford.
therefore excursions on the rivers and canals of St. Petersburg– it is a serious event, followed by closely monitoring our state. But ,Unfortunately, for small companies, which are very often found in the gray zone, simply no way to keep track.
Excursion along the rivers and canals of St. Petersburg a safe boat, having all tolerances, -this is one of the main, but not the only condition for the success of the tour.
In the past few years, small companies because of the economy include audio guides.
Only large shipping companies can afford a staff officially accredited professional guides.
All professional guides are accredited, output by the city government.
And only in the shipping company "Neva Travel" has Tourdesk, headed by one of the best guides -vodnikov Traveler Tamara. The company has more than 40 accredited guides, which are different boat tours. All guides annually refresher courses.
Excursion on rivers and channels SPb a safe boat with a professional guide- this 90% success. But 90%, is not 100%.
Small shipping companies are gaining on the ship is not in time, and until there is a certain number of passengers. And probably, many have heard, as the barker and administrators say, that the ship starts in 15 minutes. But 15 last minute is not 15 and 20 min. Unfortunately- it is a feature of small companies. The "Neva Travel" all tickets sold on a specific time and buy them you can not only at the box office on the dock, but also through the Internet on any given day and time. But that's another story!!!
You can pay in cash, and cards and through telephone and other payment systems.
