so fun to do at night!
This was a really great tour. Although I am from Ft. Lauderdale, Fla and therefore have seen my share of draw bridges, this tour is a great way to see St. Pete all lit up at night. My 13yr old daughter and I really enjoyed it.
It rained but to our pleasant surprise tour guide showed up. I apologize for not recalling her name but she was great. Very cool person, friendly and conversational. She was also very informative about not just the bridges and canals but the buildings in the neighborhood we walked through prior to getting on the boat. The tour itself was a wonderful experience and the sites to see were beautiful. I recommend this tour.

THIS TOUR IS A MUST. This is so beautiful, St. Petersburg really lights up at night. You could swear the whole city is made of light. Such an incredible way to see St. Petersburg. Bring your camera, there are many AMAZING photo opportunities!! This really is something out of a fairy tale.
Let's talk about tour guide herself! She is the most cheerful, and pleasant person we met in all of St. Petersburg. Calm mannered, young, full of energy, and knowledgeable, we really liked her.
She gave us a choice of a long or short route along the Neva River and surrounding canals, explaining the benefits of both clearly, so that there was no doubt as to what we would be getting depending on our choice. I'm not sure if the tour would've been as good without her specifically being assigned as the tour guide. While I left Russia when I was four years old, and my vocabulary isn't extensive, my parents, however, thought she was an impressive tour guide which is good news coming from actual Russians. Another benefit of this tour is that the group wasn't huge, so it was really easy to listen to the guide's narrative.
I can't recommend this tour enough. One thing to bear in mind is the cold, so ensure that you dress WARMLY. Blankets are provided. One final thing to keep in mind is that there's no transport from the train station to the tour departure point, so be prepared to walk, however it is a very short walk, and the tour guide explained things to us as we went, as you pass a few historical landmarks along the way, which is also worth it.
Once again, an incredible tour, with an OUTSTANDING tour guide.
Very well done. Highly recommended!
Really nice tour
This tour was amazing!
I have to add St Petersburg to be one of my favorite cities of the world. People were friendly and my guide was excellent. It was fun to cruise the river late night and see the crowd gathering on the banks of the river to see the Drawbridges open up. I just had an amazing time in Russian Federation. Don't believe the media and apply for Visa and see the palaces, museums and have a wonderful time.
Very engaged and helpful guide; fantastic event thanks to beautiful blue sky
This was a great experience. Our tour guide, Lydia, was very knowledgeable and easy to talk to and gave us lots of information on buildings along the canal as well as stories about past residents. We were even able to postpone our tour to a different evening because the weather was not so great on the night we had booked the tour. The meeting point was a little tough to find, so I would suggest telling guests to meet at the boat company's dock or something like that in the future.
This was the WOW! factor of our recent visit to St Petersburg - I never realised how huge this attraction was until we saw hundreds of people lining the banks of the canal to watch the bridges go up. And not to mention the number of boats on the water as well. Definitely worth while and we had a lovely guide - her English was amazing and she shared some fascinating stories with us. Will want to do this again some day!
