We were in a group of about 12 to 14 people and it was great,we were picked up at the dock and had our tour guide Victor and driver for the 2 days.Victor was fantastic explaining all the Russian history, and all the myths we are told. The driver was very plesant and had a few tricks of his own which the made the trip very worthwhile. I would highly reccommend this tour, and would love to go back to St Petersburg

On our 1st of 2 days, we were grouped with 3 other couples from another cruise ship to tour the gardens at Peterhof Palace and Catherine's Palace. Our guide, Eugenya, was not only very knowledgeable, but was extremely entertaining as well. For the rest of the group, this was their 2nd day, so on the following day, we actually received a private tour! Our new guide was named Anna, and she too was exceptionally knowledgeable and personable. She navigated us masterfully through the Hermitage, the Church of Our Savior on Spilled Blood, and Peter and Paul Fortress. I can't say enough about how enjoyable and enriching this tour was for me and my husband. By the time we parted company, Anna felt more like a daughter and shaking her hand simply didn't seem adequate, so I give her a good-bye hug instead.
