We had an amazing tour seeing all the highlights of beautiful St Petersburg. Our guide with TJ Travel, Michael, was excellent, knowledgeable, fluent, professional. Our driver, Vlad, was excellent as well. The Peterhof , Catherine palace and the Hermitage were breathtaking. Recommend without hesitation.

The best cruise excursion we've ever taken. We had the best tour Guide Olga and a great driver Alexander and there were only 14 of us six of these were my family in a very comfortable Mercedes Van. We saw so many places in the two days we were in Russia and Olga did a phenomenal job at explaining and giving historical background of the places we visited. We even saw places that were not on the itinerary. Olga brought us to an island that once served as a prison and is now a building with many different restaurants.
This was a great group and we even took a group picture at the Hermitage. The canal / river tour was awesome and gave you a different perspective of St. Petersburg from the water. Very happy with this tour and way cheaper than what we would have been charge by the cruise ship in addition to being in a big bus with 45 other passengers.

Very packed with activities, this high quality tour touches on all the major attractions. Our guide Alexa was extremely knowledgeable and took the time to understand our interests to guide the focus of our visits. She also filled up all our travel time with great information about St. Petersburg and life in general in Russia. The transport was very nice and everything was done very professionally.

Tim our guide showed us St Petersburg through the eyes of an experienced guide and a city resident. He was thoughtful and concerned with the comfort of his guests. We saw everything our ship offered at half the price and with a small easy to get around group. Would highly recommend TJ travel.

Excellent excursion! We covered lots of ground and Kate was a great guide. Seeing the Hermitage was a long time destination for me and it did not disappoint. Cathedrals, Peterhof and the Metro visit/ride was other highlights. Highly recommend.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2018

The tour covers the major sites of interest in the city. We were lucky not to encounter a huge crowd when we were at the Hermitage and Catherine Palace.
The guide and driver are very professional and friendly. They took extra care in ensuring the safely of the group in areas where it is crowded.

We a family of 10 booked and our booking was routed to TJ Travel. Seems like the TJ travel is a major tour operator in the region. We were taken around in a Mercedes van which can accommodate 14 people. We were greeted at the port and provided with head phones and water.
All the tours sites mentioned in the promotion were covered very well. All the site tickets were covered and arrangements were made towards timely entry into all the location. Our tour guide was Eugene. He is very friendly, well qualified, fluent in English and provided excellent tour commentary providing details of the Russian history and everyday life and cultural facts. Our driver Alex was friendly and very capable driver even in the traffic. All the palaces and cathedrals were fantastic. Canal tour was beautiful. We were taken on a metro ride via one of architecturally rich metro station. Also we were taken for lunch to local restaurants to enjoy local cuisine.
Overall this was highlight of our cruise trip and we want to Thank Eugene, TJ travel and its staff for an excellent St. Petersburg tour.
