Veronica was a wonderful guide .She dealt very well with some problem tourist . Very knowledgeable and HONEST about St. Petersburg . Our group of 16 was perfect size.We did not waist any time getting on and off buses like Tours threw Cruise Ships.. Faberge Museum was OK . We did Folk Show in evening for extra $ but, was well worth it. Had great time .Lunch was also very good . Felt very safe entire time on tour. Many in our group was worried about that for some reason.

Absolutely a great tour! Our guide was amazing, her English speaking skills were perfect. Our timing was perfect, as others waited in long lines our tour group moved through each stop with total ease. The guide kept our group of 15 perfectly paced to see all the key sights. She placed us in the best spot at the right time at Petroff fountain to see the opening ceremony. Her knowledge level across the tour, was like having a University professor guide you through the stops and explain the amazing history of St Petersburg. We were so glad we booked this tour instead of cruise ship version. We paid less and got to do and see more.

This was a fantastic tour. Highly recommend it. Our tour guide Veronika was incredible. She explained everything we were seeing and answered every question. Wear your walking shoes, there is a lot to see. The tour doesn't include going inside of St. Isaacs but we ran over there during lunch and purchased a ticket and went in takes about 15 minutes to see the inside. Get the 'museum' ticket-- they call the inside of the church the museum. The Faberge eggs were gorgeous. The palaces and Hermitage were so ornate. The cathedral of the blood was breathtaking. Unfortunately there was some scaffolding on the outside, but it was still gorgeous. If you have difficulty walking distances at a pretty good clip this may not be the trip for you -- we put something like 13,000 steps on our fitbits each day.

Great two day in St. Petersburg and able to visit great places. Peterhof and Catherine's Palace are spectacular. The grounds and fountains at Peterhof are spectacular. And at Catherine's Palace - an Amber decorated room that Russia spend 12 million to restore! Veronika was a great guide. She was knowledgeable and entertaining. The Church of Spilled Blood is incredible! We definitely were able to enjoy the beauty of the places and get a great amount of history. And Russian pancakes -- pretty good! We only wish that members of a tour group were a little more courteous and get to the meeting places on time. One group was 45 minutes late. Getting through Russian Customs from a cruise ship was a little slow, but there were plenty of booths open and we were alerted to allow extra time. Thank you Veronika very much for making out 2 day visit very enjoyable.

Small group of 7 with a lovely guide Elena and driver Andrew. Saw many sites with excellent information from guide. Boat trip and meal included along with all entry fees paid so nothing to pay for on a full two day guide.

We absolutely enjoyed this excursion, it meet all our expectations of seeing as much of St Petersburg as possible in two days. Our guide Sonja had a wonderful command of English, was well informed, highly educated and concerned that we fully understood what we were seeing, hearing and learning. We were a perfect size group of eight transported in a luxury van with a great driver, Ivan. We were met by the owner of the tour company Maxi Balt Tours , Alexei Volkov, and taken to the Faberge Museum in his personal car as we were the only two of the eight who were seeing this very worthwhile exhibit. We highly recommend you consider seeing St Petersburg with MaxiBaltTours. There is a great deal of walking involved in this tour, but felt good to get some serious exercise after eating cruise ship meals for 10 days.
