Grand Tour plus Peter and Paul Fortress
Passenger732448
, Jan 2019
Service is good and personal, with two of us only, but did not show where is Peter and Paul Fortress and the Canons (we went into the Cathedral indeed) we also don't know where is the Winter Palace yet. So the itinerary seems a bit overstated. The weather condition in January is very harsh indeed.

Great Tour Guides

We flew to St. Petersburg for a day during a week-long trip to Moscow for the World Cup. Our tour guide, Dasha, was very competent and knew her history. She also spoke perfect English, which was very helpful. We did the all day tour which included Church of the Savior on Spilled Blood, lunch and ended at the Hermitage Museum. There was a lot of walking, but we were driven to each location by minivan. The Hermitage Museum is huge, like the Louvre, so there is a lot to see in just a few hours. My only complaint was that we did not get dropped off at our pick up location (across from the airport), but instead had to take a taxi back to the airport. With the World Cup traffic (there was a game in St. Petersburg that day) and a sudden downpour, we barely made it back to the airport in time for our return flight to Moscow. Other than that small inconvenience, the tour was very informative and covered all the sites one would want to see while visiting St. Petersburg.

We booked this amazing excursion on Viator in Saint Petersburg on the 26th of December 2017. It was absolutely fantastic! Our guide Julia picked us up at our hotel in a comfortable minivan on time. She made it possible for us to see almost all the main attractions in St Petersburg in the short time available to us. We had lunch at the most charming little restaurant with lovely food typical of the region. Julia was a fountain of knowledge and enjoyed the day immensely. She spoke English perfect. I would 100 recommend this trip.

This was perfect. My husband literally had one day to tour and we wanted to see as much as we could. Our guide was perfect-she was so friendly and we did see everything. We were together all day and into the evening. I would definitely recommend this if you need to do St. Petersburg in a day!

So this one day tour suited the needs of our small group of six and it made sure we understood some of the highlights of this wonderful city. Our guide was Lyda from Maria tours and she was absolutely first class and so knowledgable and very patient in imparting that explanation. The first part of the tour is via minibus with stops on the way. The latter part of the tour is conducting on foot but its not arduous. The lunch stop is in a very nice restaurant with a very enjoyable 3 course format. All of the entry fees are included in the rice and the guide facilitates these on the parties entry.

It was my first stop in Russia, and I am so glad that I join the grand tour in St Petersburg. I got to see the most interesting and famous sites within the city in just one day!! The route was very well planned so that we got to cover as much places as possible. My tour guide named Alyona was amazing! She's one of the most knowledgeable guides I have ever encountered when I visit a foreign city. You will never get confused or bored when you have her on your side. Her very well-spoken British English will charm you throughout the tour : In general, I would highly recommend this tour to visitors who only visit the city for a short time. But believe me, St Petersburg is a very beautiful and classic city with enormous elegant sites to visit and fun to shop. So stay a bit longer is highly recommended!!
