We loved our guide, Kate, but it was very difficult to hear her. We were on a tour boat where the loudspeaker was in Russian, and she was translating into English for us. Maybe a radio head set for this would be helpful
We highly recommend this tour. In particular, since we were traveling with our kids, it was important to skip the lines at the entrance of museums and attractions. Having your own local guides makes the travel experience more enjoyable.
The local guides Andrei and Maria were excellent and knew the city very well. They accommodated our requests in terms of time management and provided good restaurant and shopping options
The booking experience with Viator/Friendly Local guides was also very simple.
Lovely tour this week. Walked from my hotel on the Moika up to the Fontanka and went on roads parallel to Nevsky Prospect, which was really cool to see different streets. I used them later with my family.
I'm a really quick walker the poor guide so we also had enough time to pop into a photo museum as they have an amazing rooftop view of Nevsky Prospect. From the roof I even got a picture of a WW2 tram going along the street. Very cool. We also had time to go into the Elyseev Emporium again I took my family in the afternoon as I spotted some vodka in there that you cant buy in the UK.
The boat trip went on a lovely route down to St Isaacs, then past my hotel on the Moika and out into the Neva. We then passed by the Summer Garden and Anichkov Bridge and back.
Highly recommend. Had a fab time. Big thank you to Pauline.
4 of us 3 adults and 1 teenage boy were on the tour. Our tour guide, Andrew, was great and a good story-teller. The palace and garden of Peterhof were magnificent and impressive. We were happy about the tour and had a great day. However, we were not happy about the arrangement from the tour company. It's the first time for us to visit St. Petersburg/Russia and we didn't know and I admit that I need to bear certain responsibility that the river was still frozen. We booked the tour with hydrofoils and were charged more for taking hydrofoils option. However, only 2 days before the tour, we were told that we couldn't reach Peterhof via hydrofoils because the river was still frozen. The tour company apologized and made it sound like it's out of their control due to the weather. But when we arrived in St. Petersburg, we were told by locals that the hydrofoils never start before 15 April as the weather is still always cold in St. Petersburg in March/early April. That means, the tour company is selling something that cannot be fulfilled and the tour package with hydrofoils is more expensive than a normal one to go there by car. We received only EUR28.4 refund in total for 3 adults and 1 child. You do the maths and will understand the trick behind. This is a matter of integrity to me.
We had an absolutely fantastic time with Pauline in St Petersburg. She took us to the most amazing places, like the Church on Spilled Blood, Hermitage, Nevskiy Prospect, Peter and Paul Fortress and many, many other beautiful and interesting things. She accomodated our every wish.
Pauline really went out of her way to make our visit extra special, and was a delight to spend the time with.
Our very, very deepest thanks to her for an unforgettable trip of a lifetime.
Had a great and thorough tour of the Russian Museum. We started with a walk from my hotel where we discussed the history of the area. The tour itself was great. My guide was incredibly well informed and enthusiastic about the art. A great tour!
Our guide who was a college student who was pleasant, but didn't seem engaged in the tour. She was knowledgeable, but I felt that she primarily answered our questions rather than providing a dialog about the sights. Our itinerary certainly didn't match that in the tour description. We stopped at a donut shop, pastry shop and a fancy food store.
We have done several foodie tours in other cities and were delighted with them. THIS WAS DEFINITELY NOT WORTH THE PRICE!
We were met in our Lobby by Kinsenia and walked 30 mins to the boat at 23:30. The boat did not leave until 00:30. The boat seamed not ready for us. All the chairs were stacked, wet with water and not urgency to make us feel welcomed. The covered boat area smells really bad like mildew and pretty sure the blankets you can borrow have never been washed.
There are many other companies that have nicer boats that we saw that night. Boats that have bars to get drinks and snacks and are just plain nicer.
Not sure why Viator supports this part - you need to pay 10 extra in USD per each person. Why isn't this just added onto the price you pay on Viator? Also it is recommended to have the boat company call you a taxi after the boat trip that ended at 2:00 not 3:00 like stated on Viator. This taxi and Kinsenia took us on a very long taxi ride that was clearly a large circle back to our hotel. My friend even asked the driver and Kinsenia in the car Didn't we just drive in a big circle? Of course they said not, but we did. I think they were trying to justify the 40 cab fee. Also, there was no taxi meter tracking the ride, they just want the cash and only USD. I think we totally were taxi scammed.
I would look for another company that does the same thing. There were like 5 other companies on the water with us that night, so just do some more research and don't pick this excursion.
I highly recommend this tour. There is nothing more beautiful then seeing St Petersburg by boat. We had the most wonderful guide, Maria Sorokina, who was such a joy. Every question we asked her about her life, St Petersburg, and Russia she answered for us. For such a young person she was very knowledgeable. She also went beyond the river tour and walked us around plus showed us places to eat. She definitely made the tour worthwhile!
