Another remarkable day visiting the sites around St. Petersburg.
This was a great tour. When we met up with the tour guide I asked about other people and she stated we were it. So we ended up with a private tour and she was great. Her expertise on all the places was fabulous. Answered every question and took us to eat at a great underground restaurant. I will think of Viator on our next trip to Europe which we already have booked. She took us to all the places mentioned and more. I would definitely use Viator again.
The guide was excellent and knew a lot about Russia. We were more than happy with the experience and would recommend this tour to anyone.
The tour guide, Eugenie, was outstanding. She had a command not only of history and art but also politics and culture. She made the tour meaningful.
Great sight seeing. Loved the place :) Great tour guide and driver.
Tour guides didn't wait at Port for pickup. Very chaotic and upsetting waiting for 30 minutes.
Generally speaking the tour was fine. Our guide was great and very knowledgeable. The reason I would not give this a 5stars is that when we booked we were told that we would be touring Catherine's Palace. On the day of the tour, we were told that the Palace was closed on the third Monday of each month. I was disappointed and felt that we should have been told this up front. They knew our dates and I feel that they misrepresented their itinerary. The worst part was when we got back to our boat I asked around and found that people who had booked a similar tour through an alternate company were able to visit Catherine's Palace on that same day. I guess they had special arrangements for the tour of Catherine's Palace. I would recommend that you make sure that everything the Viator tour states is on your itinerary is actually possible on your day of tour. They obviously do not have special arrangement with the different venues.
