We had a great guide Anna who knew everything from Russian automobiles to Rembrandt brush strokes. She was amazing!! We got to experience the history of St. Petersburg, the grandeur of the palaces, the Highlights of the Hermitage AND the daily life of the Russian citizens!!

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.

Really well organized and very informative. Our guides Anna and Alexi could not have been better. The two days were filled,with the best sights of the city which is very beautiful and the museums were great. The trip to the Peterhof and Catherine's Palace,were very well done. The timing worked really well both days.

Irina our Guide was first rate and the headphones were very helpful to keep track of her. Russia is very strict and we had to stay with her, but I take a lot of photos, so had to walk fast to catch up at times. The Peterhof Gardens are a MUST see, the hydrofoil ride was good, Russian lunch had a good variety - borst soup, cabbage salad, etc. The Catherine Palace was gorgeous and we didn't have to wait in line like the people not in groups. The Faberge Museum was my favorite stop, Hermitage incredible, and the churches good. BE ready to do alot of walking, climbing stairs, and standing.

Despite crowds, heavy traffic and road construction Elena kept our little group on track and on time! The city is wonderful and the palaces opulent, the gardens beautifully restored. The Faberge museum is fabulous, and VIctor got us there with time to visit the official.souvenir shop. Much better than the Princess tours.

A truly magnificent experience. Nadya, our tour guide was wonderful. Her knowledge of the various venues and her professionalism in leading us through these venues was invaluable. The small group meant that we all were able to keep together and were not waiting for stragglers etc. The venues themselves were something to behold and lived up to expectation and more. The company we worked through was called MAXIBALT and their manager Alexei was also very accommodating to the point where he rang me in Australia and then met us at the ship terminal in St Petersburg. I thoroughly recommend this company and this tour, being great value for money.

This was an excellent tour. The best part was that we didn't have to stand in any of the long lines. We got to see much more on this tour than we could have on our own. The driver was great and always there on time to pick us up. I would highly recommend this tour.

This was a wonderful two day tour of St. Petersburg. Since I had been there before, I was expecting to be bored. But not with the MaxiBaltTours guide. I learned more and saw more...even places I had visited before. I would give this tour Five Stars TWICE once for each day!

This was a great way to see St Petersburg without having to get a Visa. The guide was knowledgable and spoke perfect English. The included lunch on the day was adequate but going to a local cafe would have been better. We did everything that the tours booked from the cruise line did for a fraction of the cost.

This was an amazing tour. We saw everything that was promised and more. The tour guide, Anna, was born and raised in St. Petersburg and was a joy to be with. Her knowledge of every place we visited and even the paintings in the Hermitage was extensive. We visited a Russian pie shop for lunch on the second day and had a delicious lunch and a chance to see what the locals would eat. I would recommend this tour highly.

We had a great time in Saint Petersburg. It is beautiful and this tour hit all the main sites we wanted to see. We really wanted to see the Faberge Museum and the cruise tours did not offer any tours that included this museum. I would recommend this tour if you are taking a cruise. Saved us a lot of money from cruise tours.

What a great experience, my wife and I were concerned above doing a private tour, but it was no problem. We were in a group of 6 which was just perfect. Vladimeir the driver and Veronica the guide could not have been better. Having a small group was excellent no hold ups or loosing someone it all went like clockwork. I would thoroughly recommend any one to do this

Our two days in St. Petersburg were fantastic! Guide Anna was extremely knowledegable and could answer all of our questions. Driver Vladimar was amazing even with traffic - he always seemed to find a parking place in exactly the right spot! Even though the tour could have up to 12 people, it was onloy the six of us who were traveling together. We had a private tour! I would definitely recommend this tour group anytime, and especially our guide Anna! Even though four of us had been in St. Petersburg before, we saw and learned so much more this time. Thanks for a great experience.
