Folklore Show 'Feel Yourself Russian' with Russian Buffet Dinner

St. Petersburg, Russian Federation

My Rating
2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better

My Review

We paid extra for a pick up and drop off and the driver just didn't turn up, fortunately the hotel was able to get us there on time and we were reimbursed for the pick up that didn't happen. The Folklore show was very good and well worth seeing but the dinner was hardly a dinner. Some plates of canapés that went very quickly and champagne to drink, no soft drink available. So you will definitely need a dinner afterwards!!
The pick up back to the hotel went well.

Novgorod Small-Group Tour from St Petersburg

St. Petersburg, Russian Federation

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Fabulous trip - unfortunately due to the fact it is some distance from St Petersburg, there is a lot of driving there and back. We were fortunate to have a guide and driver to ourselves and we thought the trip very worthwhile, the place has a fascinating history and we spent a lot of time walking around the Kremlin and had the best lunch on our trip to Russia - our guide found it. Would recommend the trip.

Peterhof Grand Palace and Gardens Tour with Neva Boat Ride

St. Petersburg, Russian Federation

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

This was a very worthwhile trip - we were fortunate to have a guide and driver to ourselves. The palace was very crowded with tour groups, unfortunately this is what you have in most popular places in St Petersburg!
Still we thoroughly enjoyed the palace and grounds and also enjoyed the hydrofoil back to St Petersburg.
The only down side was that you are on your own once you have left the hydrofoil, public transport is not the easiest - taxis tend to rip you off, buses are unreliable and the underground downright scary so in our case we were forced to walk a considerable distance back to our hotel - the option of a ride back to our hotel would have been great.

St Petersburg by Night: City Sightseeing Tour

St. Petersburg, Russian Federation

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

We enjoyed this trip - we were picked up and dropped back to our hotel. We had a guide and driver to ourselves and we saw buildings and places we hadn't previously visited. The guide was very informative and we learnt a lot. One word of warning - in June it is hardly is hardly "by night" as there is no night as such!

Grand Tour of St Petersburg

St. Petersburg, Russian Federation

My Rating
2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better

My Review

This trip was advertised as a Grand Tour by mini bus which was a misrepresentation. In reality, it was 4 not so young people being crammed into a very smelly taxi and taken to the first two stops and after that it was a walking tour of some hours duration and then no drop off to the hotel, so on top of the unadvertised extended walking tour we then were guided on to the Metro by our guide and what a scary experience that was and we still had to walk to the Metro and from the Metro to our hotel - all 4 of us were very angry because if we had known it was a walking tour we wouldn't have gone on it. The tour contents and the guide were good.

St Petersburg Airport Arrival Transfer

St. Petersburg, Russian Federation

My Rating
1 star rating: I do not recommend this

My Review

No one met us at the airport although we had paid for a pick up. It was all very off putting to say the least!!! We were saved by a lass on the Information Desk at the airport who could speak some English and rang up the Company for us and 10 minutes later the driver arrived and took us to our hotel.
