This was a very informative trip. Our tour guide Svetlana, was absolutely professional, knowledgable and thorough. We could not of asked for a better tour guide, it made the trip perfect.
Tour provided by Alla Tours. Lasted 8:30-5:30 day 1, 7:30-4:30 day 2. Group of 16 so Sprinter van was quite full. Polina was very knowledgeable and provided constant commentary. Really enjoyed variety of activities- museums and churches but also trip on Metro, canal boat and hydrofoil!
Our cruise company offered a 17 hours 2 day tour for 422 Euro p.P., this 19 hours 2 day tour costs 254 p.P. The bus has capacity for 18 guests, we were 11. The ships excursion bus was crowdwd with 50 persons think of the time it needs entering and leaving the bus at each stop. The driver Alex and the guide Alex coordinated all our movements in a perfect way: when we left a place our bus was standing right in front of the door dozens of other busses being parked far away and the guests had to walk. Our guide Alex was extremely knowledgeable, perfect English, with a good humour, friendly and caring for our well being, during a fascinating, interesting, well composed, covering all important sights and ways to get to know St.Petersburg hydro foil to Peterhof, boat excursions in the city, but also somewhat strenous 2 days event. Thanks to Alex andd Alex from the local operator Alla Tours and thanks to the perfect organisation it was worth every minute and every cent. Highly recommendable!
Where do I start! This tour was absolutely amazing it went beyond our expectations. I cannot recommend it enough. It was very organized, we got early entrance to all the places before the lines and lines of tourists entered. The restaurant we were booked in was a gem and the extras like the hyrodfoil, boat trip and underground was a nice addition. Well worth the amount paid.
I even wrote a whole blog on our visit.
There is virtually no way to see St Petersburg by yourself so having a tour not only provides you with a temporary visa but allows you to have the insights and history delivered by a local guide to a small group. We were disappointed at first with the van that did not fit all of the people but they corrected that on day 2 and we were happy they did. Our tour guide was well versed and expert in the subjects discussed in and around each and every place we went. I would highly recommend this trip.
We had a wonderful time our travel guide was so full of knowledge about every place we visited.The whole trip was so perfectly planned could not fault it.
This is a very professional and well run tour company. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable. We were taken to see all of the popular sights. We were on the go all day but it was worth every penny spent.
We had an amazing time in Saint Petersburg with our tour guide Elena. Elena was very knowledgeable and prepared. She was able to answer all the questions that were asked. And our bus driver was always ready to pick us up. When we were ready to leave a location, he was always waiting for us in a location that was convenient for us. And with the traffic congestion in the city, that was not always possible. It was excellent coordination between the guide and driver.
Excellent tour hit all the highlights - it was a busy 2 days - Alex our tour guide spoke fluent English - would highly recommend
