What a Lovely Experience - A Must!
MCBH767
, Jan 2020
We were on a Baltic Cruise in May/June 2019. Having booked many tours with Viator I was interested in their 2 day tour of St. Petersburg. What a great experience. We were met at the pier once we cleared customs. We had 2 full days of touring. Our guide was most knowledgeable and we learned a lot, not only about St. Petersburg, but also about Russia. We also enjoyed a local meal. We were a small group in a min-van so had the opportunity to interact with fellow travellers. I would be remiss if I did not mention that we had a very professional driver who appeared to enjoy his work. I highly recommend this tour.

Faultless tour of St Petersburg by Ludmila Tours. Met outside immigration on time with no fuss. Our guide, Eleyna (not sure about the spelling) was amazing. Very helpful and knowledgeable with a great depth of local history. The tour was exceptional value for two days and included all the sights on our list. No waiting in line for the main attractions. A big plus. A very good small group two day tour. Can not recommend it highly enough.

We enjoyed 2 great days with very friendly staff, especially Tatiana! The palaces were amazing and we didn’t have to wait in huge line ups as we were with a tour. We also saved on the cost of a Russian Visa . We felt very safe at all times and would highly recommend Viator to get a great taste of Saint Petersburg! Thank-you so much!

A nice 2 days trip that covered the main parts of St Petersburg. The guide was great and was very knowledgeable. The bus the 2nd day could be better. With 15 people it was a tight squeeze.

Easy pick up at the ship after we cleared customs Eugenia was waiting. She was excellent in her historical knowledge but wove in anecdotal info as well. Her English was excellent and it was a pleasure hearing how she and her family live. Our driver Serge wove through the traffic well. Covered a lot of ground but were so happy to see so much in 2 days

Two Great Days in St. Petersburg

, Aug 2019
I can't say enough about this tour. We had 2 PACKED days in St. Petersburg. Saw many palaces, churches, museums, subway, beautiful fountains, and more. We had a different guide on each day and both were excellent. We also got to experience a Russian lunch on each day. Our van held 13 people which was so much nicer than a big bus. Easy to get in and out. No waiting in lines anywhere! Overall, a great experience!
