We had a fantastic visit to St. Petersburg. Our guide was friendly, knowledgeable and always eager to answer questions. Our driver always parked close to our destinations as well as stopping in appropriate photo opportunity places. We were thrilled with our tour.

We LOVED our 2-day tour of beautiful St. Petersburg. We were a little intimidated by the idea of being in Russia, but the tour guide and his helpers were fantastic and made us comfortable. We enjoyed every stop and would highly recommend this to anyone who does not already know this beautiful city, but anyone who feels a little insecure about being in Russia.

This was a fantastic tour! Our guide Lisa (really the Russian version of Elizabeth which I don't know how to spell) was fantastic. She was extremely knowledgeable, spoke better English than I do and was very funny. She was solicitous of all our needs. The sights were amazing.

Our guide Dimitri was excellent, very knowledgeable and friendly. The best parts of the tour is seeing the city sights and palaces in the suburbs so you get to see beyond the tourist streets. The tour itinerary could be improved by grouping city sights together. Both lunch recommendations by our guide were good too.

Our guide, Tatyana, not only was a native St. Petersburger, but was excited to show it off to us. We had lunch at both days a wonderful small local restaurants with local dishes. Our small group of 19 was able to move around and really see the places we went to visit. Not only was the tour flexible enough to insure we got to see everything but it did so without running us ragged. The wonderful guide was just the added extra. Highly recommended

Viator really knows what they are doing. They know how to maneuver around crowds. Our tour guide Svetlana was superb in her knowledge about St. Petersburg and was very engaging. I talked to several people who took the cruise arranged tours and no doubt ours was much better and less expensive.

Good tour of a beautiful city

A good synopsis of St Petersburg in two days. The tor guide was there when we arrived at the port. There were no issues at the passport control. Compared to what the cruise line charges, this tour, which exempts one from needing an expensive Russian Visa, was a bargain. The van that seated about 14 passengers was very comfortable and clean. The guide was very friendly and spoke good English. Only suggestion is that she not walk too fast between tourist sites since some in our group had tough time keeping up. Also she should talk less about her personal story and more about history as it relates to the sites and monuments being visited.
