I booked a Grand Tour of St Petersburg with the Peter and Paul Fortress Aug 2012 and was unhappy with the tour. I feel that the tour was misrepresented not only to myself, but the couple that we met on the tour as well. Both parties were surprised when the entire tour, including pick up at 3 hotels, only lasted a total of 2.5 hours. Our guide pointed a few things out through the window of our van, then we made one stop to take a picture and one stop at the fortress. I was in complete disbelief when our tour stopped at St. Isaacs cathedral and the tour guide told us that we could either get out or have the driver return us to our hotel. If someone simply wants to sit in a van and have a small bit of history told to them while they drive, then this tour is for you. If you desire anything more you will be sadly disappointed. The tour of the fortress and cathedral was nice, I wish the rest of the tour could have been more in-depth. We actually took a canal tour later in the day on our own and felt it was much more informative.
