Spectacular Shore Excursion!
CurtAurbanboomer
, Oct 2019
Recently visited St. Petersburg and had the most wonderful 2-days. We saw all the highlights of this amazing city. The Hermitage (minus the cloak room...that part is no fun) was amazing. Nice boat tour but you have to sit up top to really benefit from the tour. Peterhof, also amazing. The trip on the subway was a huge highlight for us we just wish we could have gone a couple more stops. Lunch on the first day was fine, nothing spectacular but a great representation of traditional Russian lunch. This one was included in our ticket price. Lunch on day 2 was a bit more of a challenge. The restaurant was not prepared for us so it took forever but that was on the restaurant, not the tour operator. The guides for the tours worked hard to get restaurant staff to fix it which slowly got better. By that time, food was cold. This lunch is on your own money which was a bummer. The tour overall was good and I would recommend it to anyone but what made it special was our guide Tatiana! She was amazingly knowledgeable, friendly, efficient, accommodating and flexible. Her calm demeanor and positive nature made for an exceptional experience. Thanks to her, our 2-days in St. Petersburg were very memorable and will remain with us forever.

Dear Curt! Thank you so so much for such a great review for us!! We are indeed happy to hear you will remember it and our city will be in your heart! This is our main aim!! The slow service in restaurants in St. Petersburg is our style indeed..I would even say all our life style in this cold city is slow :)) Hope it didn't ruin the image of the tour. Wish you all the best!

First, there was a very good communication between the excursion staff and myself. They were always swift in replying to any queries. Our guide Svetlana was passionate about Saint Petersburg and she made the 2 days very enjoyable, unforgettable and memorable. She is a Mega guide! My highlight was the river cruise. Lovely views and pictures. Be prepared for large crowds in the Hermitage and Catherine's Palace.

Thank you so so much!! To be honest I adore River cruise as well! The city was built to be looked at from water! :)

Our guide Svetlana was excellent especially at getting us through large queues and she was very well informed on all her subjects.We saw so many wonderful places and never felt too rushed as we were in a small group of 14 people.

Good Shore Excursion

Generally speaking, this shore excursion is good. But there are two problems。 1. According to "What to Expect" on Viator's website, the Hermitage Museum tour should be two hours. But the tour guider cut the time to one and half hour. Hermitage Museum is the most important visiting place, two hours is short already. The tour guider should not cut the time. 2. According to "What to Expect" on Viator's website, we should return to ship at 5 PM on the second day. But the tour guider cut about one hour and drove us back to ship around 4 PM The tour guider should not cut the time.

Thank you for your review, we appreciate each one.Could you please let us explain the timing for the group tour visit. The second day of your tour, was in the suburbs of St. Petersburg got back by 4.30 p.m. which was recommended time by St. Petersburg port that day. As for the Hermitage visit .The group tour visit oblige a guide to follow the route which covers all the main highlights and does not let the guide to cut the visit. In some of the places visits may take longer or shorter time. The given time is approximete but in all the cases we guarantee not missing the attractions and having enough time for a comfort tour planning.
