We had Polina as our tour guide. She is extremely experienced in this. She got us around in front of all the big groups - mainly chinese tourists and let us see everything at a good speed but not in a rushed manner. The only bad thing was the lunch. It was very poor to say the least. Food bad and their didn't seem to be anyone around who spoke any english to explain what we were getting etc. I would rather have forgone this and got to see a metro station which was the only thing that I felt that I had missed out on in St Petersburg. Its a great place and it would be impossible to see all we saw in two days if you weren't on a tour like this. Obviously it is great as the visa is not required which makes it a no brainer to do this really.

Wonderful time in St Petersburg with our fabulous guide. We were so lucky to have a small group of 5 and such a personal tour. Paulina was extremely knowledgeable and gave us such a lot of interesting information about her city. Visited the main attractions of museums,churches palaces and gardens

Our tour of St. Petersburg was fantastic and we cannot speak highly enough of our guide Pauline. She is extremely knowledgeable, friendly and was absolutely determined to give us a tour that we hoped for. I can't believe how much we saw and experienced in our two days there. The canal cruise was a wonderful part of the tour as was everything we saw. Our drivers were also excellent and friendly,. The included lunch on the tour was very good and in a nice restaurant. It was far better than what was offered by the ship. One thing, however, be prepared to walk... alot! There is so much to see on this particular tour. We highly recommend the tour and Viatour to anyone considering a trip there... and Pauline, if you are reading this, Clare, Frank and I thank you for a wonderful experience!

We were in St. Petersburg for 2 days on Aug 15 and 16 and visited the church of spilled blood,hermitage museum, Peterhof palace and gardens,Catherine's palace, and the fortress of Peter and Paul, and enjoyed a boat tour through the canals. The tour company was Aventura Travel and our guide was Paulina. I have been with guides all over the world and was totally impressed with Paulina. She was professional and personable and her knowledge of the history of the locations we visited was exceptional. She was able to guide us through the crowds skillfully without ever making us feel rushed.
We were provided with a portable unit with earpieces that allowed us to to explore while listening to the commentary.An exceptional tour which I highly recommend.

We were a little wary of booking a tour online rather than through the Cruise company but any fears were quickly forgotten, thanks to our wonderful guide Elisa and driver Denis. Elisa was extremely knowledgeable and passionate about her beautiful city. She demonstrated her wealth of knowledge about Russian history and art with ease during our 2 day excursion around SPB. Indeed her general knowledge and conversational skills were excellent.

She was also well versed in minimising time in queues and gaining entry to all the attractions. When discussing our tour with fellow cruise passengers, we got to see more sites than most and at times when they were less busy.
We were very fortunate that there were only 2 of us in the party and with Elisas experience and local knowledge , she was able to add a few unplanned stops. She actually paid for us take a trip on the underground metro and on the second day took us to a fast food restaurant Russian style - red caviar wrapped in a pancake with a pint of local beer!

It was a trip to remember and we would highly recommend Aventura as travel guides while in St. Petersburg.

Super Tour! Marina, unsere Führerin sprach perfektes Deutsch, hatte ein unglaubliches Wissen und lehrte uns absolut alles über St. Petersburg und die Zaren. Sie machte es auch möglich, dass wir trotz Hochsaison nirgendwo anstehen mussten. Auch Sergej, unser Fahrer, war einfach nur toll. AAA+++

Awesome tour through St-Petersburg.

We booked a small group tour expecting about 16 people but there was just 4 of us. This was a great way to see St Petersburg without having to get a Visa. We encountered no issue with the visa provided by Viator when presented to customs.

Our excellent tour guide Evgenia and the driver picked us up at the ship. The pick-up time from and to the ship was respected for the scheduled 2 day tour.

Evgenia is certainly the best tour guide available to visit St-Petersburg. With a degree in history and journalism, she presented us with outstanding details and historic information. She was able to answer all the questions that were asked. Evgenia was knowledgable and spoke perfect English.

We highly recommend this tour.

It was a long day but an incredible experience. We thoroughly enjoyed our guide and all of the places we went to. We had a group of 9 people so it was perfect to have our own private tour.
