I want to thank Alexei and Ilenia for taking me to Moscow and showing me the Kremlin and Red Square. They were very professional and did a great job. My only complaint was that I wished I had stayed longer to see more of the city. Highly recommended.

Our tour operator, Maxibalt Tours was excellent. Alexei was very professional and made sure that me and my husband are well taken cared of from Saint Petersburg to Moscow. Our tour guide in Moscow, Anna was beyond excellent. We felt really safe and confident the whole Moscow tour. She’s very knowledgeable of Russian history and went out of her way assisting us with food choices, taking pictures and making sure that we get into our train without any problem. I highly recommend Maxibalt Tours!

Dear Milagros and John, Thank you so much for such a positive review. It's the best reward we could get for our work. Truly - our visa-free Moscow shore tour from St Petersburg is a unique opportunity to visit Russia's capital during your cruise stay in just one day. Round trip bullet train, private local guides, pre-arranged Kremlin museums visits and superb service makes it one of our favorite and best selling tours. You know now that there's still so much to see here - so please come back! Your Russian friend, Alexei

Private tour to Moscow from St Petersburg

This was a fabulous excursion and I highly recommend if you visit Russia, it is a must. The private tour allowed us to leave later than the cruise groups. We covered more in less time. The tour company that Viator set it up with (MaxiBalt Tours) was fantastic. They texted and called me the night before as I requested Viator to allow. We confirmed our meeting time and location. They picked me up at the terminal by van and excorted us to our seat on train. As we got off train, our guide was waiting for us with a sign. OUr tour guide was super! All spoke very good English and the tour of all they key sites were fabulous. This was the highlight of my husband and I's Viking Cruise.

Dear Maureen, wow, this was the quickest review that we ever got. It looks like you wrote it right after you returned to your ship from Moscow. It's extra special because your memories are still so fresh. It was a pleasure for us to host you here for all 3 days, On your day 1 you had Catherine's Palace + Amber room tour with us, then you had special later entrance tour of Grand Peterhoff Palace and parks. Next day you went on 1-day Moscow tour. And on your day-3 we took you to private Hermitage tour (special early entrance to avoid queues). So glad that all of this was a success and you enjoyed it. Please spread the word and know that you are always welcome back! Alexei
