The cruise ship tried to put you off booking outside trip but it was easy and far less cost. Met once we cleared immigration our group was 12 in a small Coach with a guide and driver. Fully packed days taking in all key sites, included 3 course lunch in price on one day. Guild was fab very informative and small group was great. Tour also include boat trip. I would highly recommend this trip.
We loved this tour! It visited all the main attractions in 2 days. Lunch on the first day was great! The schedule was ontime and we got to spend ample time at each attraction. I recommend this tour. Our tour guide was amazing!
Our guide Oleg from Ventura was amazing 6 out of 5. Just the right pace and just the right amount of information. St Petersburg is magnificent and the tour covered so much of it as well as Peterhoff. Russian lunch was a bonus.
Don't think twice, Just book it.
October is very cool but the que and crowds are so much smaller. No que at the Heritage was a miracle.
The guide was late on the 2nd day, we need to stand in the strong wind. The tour was nothing special. But the lunch included in the 1st day was good. Nice restaurant.
Oleg was very informative , very energetic , patient and very enthusiastic and takes care of every single detail. One of the best tour guides I’ve had , maybe the best . We had great 2 days ! Make sure you ask for Oldeg when you take this tour !
Guide (Oleg) was almost perfect! Very knowledgeable of Russian history, polite, very resourceful, punctual and well organized with the tour schedule.
Tour was well priced, we were very pleased with the sites we visited and van was comfortable..
Only one!! We didn't have enough time to have lunch on the second day; schedule was a little tight Maybe, tour can include packed lunch ( like sandwich and drink) that can be eaten while in the boat ride? Everyone complained about almost skipping lunch the second day. I thought this was worth mentioning
Otherwise, everyone was happy with the tour, highly recommended.
We had a very good guide, in Paulina. She was knowledgeable and took us to all the main sights and with good commentary.
Fantastic tour . Hard to see how anymore could be crammed in . Fast paced but never rushed . Day one is the busy day with a lot on the agenda . Day two slightly less but just as enjoyable . Our guide Oleg was outstanding . Informative , friendly and the patience of a saint !! Nothing too much trouble for him and took the time to answer all questions fully . Typical Russian lunch provided on day one . Basic but tasty and more than adequate . No lunch on day two but Oleg gave us directions and recommendations for local cafes etc . The one our party tried was very good . These cafes are in the area of the boat trips which is the last leg of the tour . For the price and what's included this is highly recommended . We were on a Baltic cruise and St Petersburg was definitely the highlight of all our ports of call .
Very informative and fun 2 days at St. Petersburg. Our guide Oleg from Aventura was excellentexcellent and very knowledgeable about Russia's history.
We were visiting St Petersburg by cruise ship, and needed a good tour as an alternative to the cruise line offerings. This tour turned out to be brilliant, covering all the most important sights of St Petersburg over two days at half the cost that our cruise ship wanted to charge. Our guide Olga was excellent, knowledgeable and patient, and best of all it was a small group, which was much more fun than a big tour. Could not recommend more highly.
