One of the best tours ever. Elena was super, restaurants were superb, tours always punctual and on time.
Excellent guide and super tour!
Really nice choice of restaurants
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
Great experience with excellent tour guide and driver as they were friendly and answered all our questions
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.

Excellent tour conducted by knowledgeable and friendly guide
Maria was a fantastic guide and really cared that we understood Russia and the history. We loved everything about the tour except for our lunch venue on the second day-not good. Happy we chose Viator for this experience.
A great tour magnificently enhanced by out Tour Guide Olga.
There were many highlights with it being unfair to single out any one in particular.
Thoroughly recommended and fantastic value.
This is the only way to see St Petersburg when coming off a cruise ship with limited time. The tour is great and being a smaller group you get more time and see more things. My negative is that for lunch you actually have no choice but to eat where the tour director takes you and this is a set meal and price. I would like the tour company just to include this in their price, because you have no choice or time to go somewhere else to eat. As for shopping you will again be directed to one shop and one shop only. But all in all this is the only way to see St Pete in a short period of time
I cannot say enough good things about this tour. We were met by a representative from the tour company immediately after exiting border control on day one. Our tour guide, Elena, was the best! She was from St. Petersburg and was very knowledgeable about the city and its history. It was a jam packed two solid days of St. Petersburg which is exactly what we wanted. We saw the Hermitage, Catherine's Palace, Peterhof, St Isaac's Church, The Church of the Spilled Blood, and Peter and Paul Fortress. We took a tour of the city's subway system, had two wonderful typical Russian lunches, and did much sightseeing around the city by bus. I shouldn't say bus, as it was more of a van, with only 16 or so people on the tour, making it much more enjoyable and personal than a bus tour. I feel that our two days in St. Petersburg could not have been better. I highly recommend this tour!
Tour was great as well as guide. However had traveled before to Russia previously. I had a visa and was allowed to travel freely on my own after tour. Tour company obtained visa for us but we were only allowed to travel with guide. This information wasn't communicated before our arrival in st Petersburg so that was a bit frustrating
Couldn't have been better. Very well organized so no wasted time. Our guide, Laraisa, was terrific. She was very knowledgeable about everywhere we went. Her English was perfect and she was very personable. Tour was definitely worth the money.

Wow, the only way to see St. Petersburg! Guide was great and small group size was perfect. Saved nearly 200 each on cruise ship prices and didn't have to deal with a bus size tour.
It was a fantastic time! Our guide was great and we saw all the sights with just 7 other people. I highly recommend seeing this city in a small group. We were able to see so much more than the large bus tour. We were met at the ship each day and had a full day with interesting lunch stops and wonderful photo opts.
The tour was excellent. Our guide Victor and driver Asfan met us at the port and were extremely helpful and very knowlegable .St Petersburg is magnificent and everything we had imagined. My wife needs to use a wheelchair so we were a little bit more concerned than most tourists that everything would be ok. We need not have worried, most of the tour was accessible and there were some lifts . We would not hesitate to book with Viator again in any city we visit.
Wonderful, wonderful and wonderful. Guide Jane was exceptional. Best guide we had in three weeks of touring. Excellent English and very good about controlling group.
Guide was terrific, tour covered the highlights of beautiful St Petersburg, we would recommend this for anyone that is in St Petersburg for two days.
Excellent tour, guide and driver very friendly. Tour guide waited for everyone to catch up with her before explaining area we were at and very knowledgeable about history of all the places we visited. She was very approachable and would answer any question asked, even if it was a personal one. Would highly recommend this tour.
