This tour was fantastic. So lucky with 2 days of sunshine. Our tour guide amazing. Her knowledge and English superb. Great value compared to the same tour on offer from our ship. A small group of 12 allowed us more time at sites and freedom not enjoyed by fellow ship passengers on bus tours with 50 people. St Petersburg an amazing City. No issue with visas getting off the ship. No doubt the small group the way togo. Personalized service the best. Thank you Viator.
Excellent and thorough way to see the beautiful city of St Petersburg and it's culture. Guide was very knowledgeable of St Petersburg and its history and the driver as great as well. Small tour group size was also a plus.
This was a fantastic tour. Our guide, Anna, was so knowledgeable which which was the key to a great two days seeing the sights and learning the history of places we visited. The price of this tour was exceptional. I highly recommend this tour.
A most memorable 2 day trip. We felt taking this tour this was the only way to see St. Petersburg in a short time and we were right. It was superb. A wonderful and knowledgeable guide made all the difference in the world.
We took this tour in August, an it was the highlight of our Baltic cruise. Before we even arrived at St Petersburg we had misplaced our invitations essential for getting through Russian border control, and phoned Viktoria who was very helpful in e-mailing replacements. We were met by Tickets and Tours staff after clearing border control, and our guide Yelena apologies if spelling isn't correct shepherded our small group of 11 to the mini-bus, and Yelena and driver Alexander gave us an excellent 2-day tour of St. Petersburg. First day we saw the Hermitage and other sights / cathedrals in the city itself including a river cruise, and a trip on the Underground, and second day we visited Catherine's palace and the amazing gardens and fountains at Peterhof. The trip was good value, our guide excellent and knowledgeable, we were given plenty of opportunity to shop at souvenir shops that had variety and were reasonably priced, and Yelena found good lunch venues for us which weren't crowded or expensive. The commentary sound individual units with earphones was good quality, and there was wi-fi on the minibus. Would recommend this tour to anyone.
This was a fabulous tour highly recommend it. Our guide, Marsha, was very experienced in the history of Russia, the politics and socio-economics of the country. She spoke several languages and answered all questions. We only had 4 in our group which was perfect.
these sites are not to be missed and a lot was crammed in to two days. I was concerned that it would be exhausting and there was some walking involved but as we were a small group we could pick and choose our itinerary to some degree.
Wow... what a trip!! The tour guide, Elena, was amazing - there wasn't anything she didn't know about St. Petersburg and was friendly and engaging. There was free wifi and water on the minibus, we saw all the sights and were taken to some excellent restaurants for lunch on both days. Great value for money, we can't recommend it highly enough.

Our tour guide, Helena, was very knowledgeable and was happy to accommodate our needs and requests. We were given a very good overview of Russia today and plenty of history. Well organized and a definite must if visiting St Petersburg. A highlight of our trip.

We enjoyed our 2 day adventure in St Petersburg. Thanks for offering this pkg.
We had the most wonderful experience on August 8 in St. Petersburg with Anna Glushkova who was the most gracious and knowledgeable guide we have ever had. She had such knowledge of every aspect of what she was showing us. It was a private tour and know we will recommend her to anyone coming to ST. Petersburg. We enjoyed her company greatly. Thank you, Anna, you exceeded all expectations we could ever have had.
Seeing St Petersburg in a small group is the way to go. Seem to have access to places in the palace without the big crowds. Our guide for the 2 days was excellent. Highly recommended.
A must-do. If you are in town for two days through a cruise, this is the way to go. Great tour, some shopping time, LONG lines are skipped. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
This was a great decision instead of taking the cruise offered tours. The group was 16 persons in a minivan very comfortable with A/C. The tour include a boat ride and entry to all the places. Places visited were Peterhof, Catherine Palace, Hermitage, St. Issacs Cathedral, Church of Spilled Blood and even a ride on the Subway to see the amazingly decorated subway stations. The guide Tanya was very professional and pleasant she went out of her way to make sure tour was complete and that everyone was comfortable. She also spoke perfect English. I highly recommend taking this tour. Last time we were in St. Petersburg we took the cruise tour with a bunch of people and did not see all the places we saw with the smaller group which has more flexibility. I highly recommend this tour.
Excellent company to choose for your tour in Russia. The guides are very knowledgeable and personable. You avoid the long lines and see everything you need to see in St. Petersburg.
Had an amazing time...our guide was very knowledgeable and was real good reacting to everyone...driver was also very good and everything went as planned..will book with Viator again ....and save money.....
What a great tour!! Our tour guide was Elana and she was wonderful! We couldn't believe how knowledgeable she was. She was like a walking history book but so interesting to listen to. We spent out first day at Catherine's Palace and Peterhof Gardens. They were stunning! Our second day was in the city including a boat tour, Hermitage Museum, St. Isaac's Cathedral and Church of Spilled Blood.I highly recommend this tour to anyone looking to see the highlights of the city.
Elana was so knowledgable and friendly. We were able to skip long long lines and get right in to everywhere.
Irina was a wonderful guide and made St. PETERSBURG come to life .. The fact that she has lived there all her life and seems to know everything down to every piece of art work in the Hermitage made the 2day tour worth the price. Talking to others on the cruise I feel we had the best experience possible.
Our tour was a very small group and the best tour we have taken. Tanya our guide was great and entry into all the sites was quick and easy with no long waits. Highly recommend this tour.
Our 2 day tour of St. Petersburg was great and our tour guide was amazing! Highly recommend a tour with Viator!
Our guide Maria was fantastic, very knowledgeable, thorough and friendly. She took us to many places of interest and gave us detailed commentary. We were in a small group so it was easy to get around. The only negative about the tour was that we did not have internet as was said on the tour details .
Have rated this before 5 star without a doubt. Anna and Dimitri first class.
Would recommend to anyone.
perfect tour everything as listed in the ad , wi fi on bus was very good, the driver and guide was exceptional everything was organised .
there was no rushing and the time at places was well timed I would recommend this tour to anyone who has not seen Russia before.
Our guide was incredibly knowledgeable and this was the most comprehensive city tour available. We couldn't have asked for more!
