The tour company is asking for a copy of my passport. We will be arriving on a cruise ship and boomed a private 2 day tour. Is this the norm to ask for copies of my passport? Thank you!

Hi! Yes, it's normal in case you don't have visas. In this situation the company will develop "tour tickets" and they will need detailed passport info for that. Enjoy your time in St. Petersburg! Masha, Best Guides
