St. Petersburg, Russian Federation
We booked our tour of St Petersburg and the Hermitage with Marierose through Viator and had a great experience. Our guide Catherine spoke very clearly and was able to answer all of our questions. Her knowledge of the city and in particular of the paintings and different artifacts in the Hermitage was fantastic. We were lucky to have a small group of 3 making the tour intimate and allowing us to easily listen to the stories, facts, ask many questions and take time to enjoy the sights. Transport was by Taxi van and our driver was very good, driving at a comfortable speed. Our tour went for 4-5 hours and was a great introduction to St Petersburg. the ability to miss the long cues at the entrance to the Hermitage alone was well worth the price of the tour. Would have no hesitation in recommending this tour to other travellers.
My wife and I really enjoyed this tour. We were lucky to have a small tour group (6 on day 1 and 10 on day 2) which really allowed for a fun dynamic in the group. The tour company really looked after us well and our guide made kept us fully informed and answered all of our questions. The tour was well structured, with some nice walks, tailored for all levels of fitness, as well as some interesting side trips to watch pottery and jewelry being made. The cave hotel was also really nice, which we must admit surprised us for the price. The meals were fully included as well, which made this great value. Would recommend this to anyone wanting to visit the region.
As Anzacs, my wife and I really enjoyed this day trip from Istanbul. It is a long day, so be prepared (picked up at 6am and didn't make it back to hotel until 11pm) however if you want to pay your respects then it is well worth the effort. The tour was well organised, with informative and friendly guides, as well as plenty of stops along the way for comfort breaks and refreshments. The buses were also quite comfortable and modern, making the long drive much easier.
We really enjoyed the tour to Punta from Montevideo. The bus picked us up from the hotel and delivered us home to the front door also. Our tour guide was friendly and helped and effortlessly switched between Spanish, Portugese and English making easy for all of us to understand some of the history along the way. We got to visit some interesting sights, and had plenty of time to look around. The bus itself was very comfortable with an onboard toilet. Would recommend this tour to anyone travelling to Uruguay.
Thoroughly enjoyed the day. Our guides were very pleasant and knowledgeable and made us feel really welcome. They also didn't try to push us into affiliated shops to buys goods which was a welcome relief. Would highly recommend.
