Great. Only 11 in our group and our Guide was especially good. We learnt so much about Russian history. Only down side was first morning getting held up a bit on the ship. Azamara lets those with their tours off first. So anything that is happening on the first morning needs to be flexible. The next two days it was easy getting off and through passport checks. Recommend booking independent tours as you do experience smaller groups at a much more reasonable cost. Glad we did it. Great experience thoroughly enjoyed St Petersburg.
The local contractor was great - from start to finish. We were met as we cleared immigration and treated professionally for the the three days of the tour. The guides took care to further customize and re-arrange the stops as we wished. The Mercedes vans were perfect for comfort - there four of us enjoyed the room. We especially appreciate the premium entry arrangements - we never stood in line for anything! We will be booking more tours.

We loved this tour! Our guide from TJ Travel, Konstantin, was great! Patient, funny, and so knowledgeable! ! We would recommend this 3 day tour to everyone! !
A fabulous experience. St Petersburg was everything and more than we expected. Our 3 day trip, was perfect, the tour guide Nina and the bus driver were exceptional in their knowledge of the places we visited. Everything was timed perfectly. We had pre set Russian dinners each day which were waiting for us when we arrived, so no time wasted from out tour time. The size of the trip 12 people was just right, and the ear pieces that NIna spoke to us through enabled all the group to hear all the information relating to the subject, without everyone straining to hear.
Well worth every penny, would recommend this 3 day trip to anyone thinking of coming to St Peterberg!
This was an outstanding three day tour. The van rides were smooth and relaxing plus the driver Edward was friendly and professional. Marina, our guide, was perhaps the best and most knowledgeable we have ever had in all our years of touring. She also knew generally the best time of the day to avoid the crowds and planned the various visits accordingly. The local meals were both good and interesting plus we had a couple of non pressured shopping stops. The sites were all well covered, informative and somewhat spectacular. Both boat trips were neat. The Hermitage tour was great but a bit rushed by the museum staff. This tour was a bargain!!
This 3 day tour guided by Dina and driver Constantine was amazing. I would highly recommend it. We werae go, go, go for 3 days and would only recommend it to those with medium walking abaility. The information Dina provided was outstanding. Our driver Constantine was a wonder finding drop off and pick up spots.
There is so much to see that it is over whelming and breathing taking especially Catherines Palace
TJ Travel and our Russian guide Alla made our tour absolutely incredible. Along with our small van holding the 10 travel guests, our driver was always just at the right spot at the right time for meeting us. The three days were so well organized - we could not have been more thrilled. Filled with historical facts and seeing such wonderful sights. Who can imagine so many glorious palaces filled with gold, stone, artwork, all perfectly restored and waiting for our eyesight. WOW!!!!! Joanne and Richard
