The local tour guides really went above and beyond to introduce the city. We are still talking about the girl from the tour agency who came to accompany us after the rest of the group left but we had to wait in downtown till the ballet started. It's a trip you have to do at least once a lifetime.
Tatyana was our guide and she was awesome. We had only 6 people in our group and we were a group of 4. She knew exactly when to go to the museums to beat the crowds and also there was a huge Navy parade that weekend we were and the bridges going to the Hermitage museum was going to be closed so she planned it so we would get there before the bridges closed. Tatyana also majored in art and in history and she has a passion of the arts. She also brought ponchos for us when we got caught in a rain storm. She was the gem of Saint Petersburg and learned so much of Russia rich history. Out of all the cities we visited on our Baltic Sea tour, Saint Petersburg was the best. We loved the Summer palace and also the Hermitage museum. The most difficult part of the trip was to pass through Russia security on the first day. This took about an 45 minutes to get through but after that the trip was awesome. The second day was nothing going through security.
The tour was fantastic covering the most important aspects of the city. The guide was a very responsible and enthusiastic person. Everything was well planned. We are very satisfied with her performance. It is very good value for money.
A really informative and well organised tour. Good value for money.
Had a great caring guide. Norwegian cruise line's shore excursions were far to hard for handicap even tho my personal consultant assured me they were not! The guide was very informative showed us many beautiful places Catherine Palace, Amber room fantastic to gardens, churches Cut the line entrance to all attractions. Sadly I booked the Russian Ballet Thru NCL Level 1 for handicap. They took us to a smelly theater That had 45 steps WITHOUT a railing to the door and 2 MORE FLOORS of stairs with a rail Their performers were more like a dance school recital than a professional group. Then we found out the next day our Viator companions were treated to the Russian Ballet at the Hermitage Theater.. Viator 10 stars, NCL minus 10 stars

I really enjoyed this trip and the history was excellent!
Very well organized and fun tour. You will see all the key highlights, and our tour guide Dina was the best. She was so informative and thoughtful, while making sure we got to see and learn about everything. Be sure to book this before you leave. Excellent investment.
Amazing 2 day excursion with our guide Maria. She was a font of information! On the first day we were 'pushing' our time due to the long immigration process from the ship. Took 1.45 hours!! However TJ Tours are aware of this and wait for each of us. Sergay the driver, was a marvel driving amongst the traffic and on the horrific roads! Great going out into the suburbs to have a traditional lunch Beef stroganoffon the first day. There was no option given for a night tour. Maria felt we had had a long day already! Second day was spent in 'town' seeing the sights, and eating a typical café lunch. Paid by credit card. Very cheap. The history and grandeur of the palaces and museum is definite worth seeing and having the knowledge and insight from Maria. Definitely recommend TJ Tours
Highlight of our cruise. Olga our tour guide was both informative and entertaining.
Absolutely wonderful! It is arduous getting through customs into Russia but once there it is captivating! Our guide Helene was fabulous! Excellent English and knowledge. She ensured we saw and did everything possible in the time allowed. Great value for money!!
