Excellent trip. Thoroughly enjoyed the peter and Paul fortress. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable. We are of an age where we had head of the Tsar and his family. It was nice to see their last resting place.
Our guide Marina was excellent. She would be particularly good with Australian tourists as she spends a lot of time there. She's very knowledgable about St Petersburg, gave us plenty of time and space for our photography.
My guide was perfect. She was very friendly and professional. Very instructive. I was blown away by the mesmerising beauty of Peter and Paul Fortress and The Church of the Spilled blood. I highly recommend this tour. It's not too long and not too short. Just perfect !
Really interesting way to see some of the key sights in SP - also - it's good to know that you do get to go inside the Church of the Spilled Blood - even though that's not clear from the description.
The great part of this tour was that we got decent seats and the show was of course very good. However it was a very rushed tour and we were under the impression that we'd be seeing inside of the other theaters as well but no joy there. It was all drive-by with little or no time for photos or good views. For the price, there should have been a return drop off to our hotel.
I will not use Viator every again. The tour guide was 15 min late picking us up. The van was dirty and smelled of heavy cigarette smoke. The vents did not work in the van and the lone window that was open did not circulate air to the back where I was sitting. It was a hot day and we were roasting in the van without air conditioning. The tour guide had a heavy accent and talked rapidly with the window open and no mic, so it was hard to understand her. When we were touring the sites, she knew her history, but wasn't able to answer additional questions. She was in a hurry to end the tour, and did so exactly on time without making up the 15 minutes she was late. Additionally, the tour stated it starts in your hotel and ends in your hotel, but the driver dropped all of us off in the center of town.
As a side note: I called Viator when I got to Russia to book additional tours. The person I spoke to seemed agitated that I called at almost 4 o'clock and everyone has already gone home.
I will NOT use Viator again.
