    Our tour guide arrived to arrival hall five minutes before reservation time however all of our guests already arrived. Tour guide is very friendly and beautiful. However her english is hard for me to understand as I am not native speaker and she got accent. Two lunch meals are really nice very tasting but the first day's meal we use over one hour to wait.It took too long. I would say this is a lovely tour and include lots of visiting.

    We had Oleg as our guide for the 3 day tour. His knowledge of St Petersburg was unbelievable. He kept the tour interesting and was extremely entertaining so we were never bored. One person ended up in a wheelchair for the day and he insisted on pushing them around. Nothing was too much trouble for him. One of the best tours we have ever done. Thank you Oleg.

    I have to give 5 stars to this tour. I was hesitant to book an independent tour instead of using the ship's tours, but it was the best decision that I made. We arrived in St. Petersburg by cruise ship. Our tour guide was waiting for us as soon as we exited into the ship terminal. Turned out that my husband and I were the only ones on the tour, so in effect, we had a private car, driver and tour guide for the 3 days. Our tour guide, Daria, was a wealth of knowledge. She knew her history . She accompanied us through every Palace and Church, and the Hermitage, The tour included admission to every place that we went to, including the Hermitage . This is not always the case with other tours. And there was no waiting in line. The lines tend to be incredibly long, so this was a huge time saver. Our tour also included a river cruise, Metro ride, and lunch. The lunches could have been better, but all in all, not bad. I would suggest that you ask for non-touristy restaurants. This tour gives great value for the cost. And I liked having the same tour guide for all 3 days. I highly recommend this tour.

    Where do we start, 3 amazing days in St Petersburg, 3 equally amazing, knowable tour guides, different one each day worked so well and even the driver looked after our welfare re pick pockets and was so polite and is one of the safest drivers we have EVER had on holiday. We cannot rate St Petersburg, the tours, the guides and even the driver too highly. 10/10

    This tour was outstanding. Stan was our tour guide for all 3 days of this visa-free tour. He was very friendly, informative and re-arranged the schedule as necessary to avoid long queues and possible traffic. It was a small group tour of 15 people in a minibus which proved to be an excellent way of moving between the cultural sites. So, all in all it was a great way of seeing St Petersburg.

    We couldnt have seen wonderful St Petersburg properly without our wonderful guides and drivers. Polina managed to take us to all our museum visits without us having to que and she and Anna were so knowledgeable about all aspects of St Petersburg life and its history. They were brillIant and we enjoyed the three days spent with them.

    Stan was an excellent guide it was fun spending 3 days with he and the driver Alex. They were there at the pier when we arrived and
    after we went through the immigrations area we boarded the van with 12 other cruise passengers and began our journey of St. Petersburg.
    Stan was very easy to understand and was extremely knowledgeable in Russian history and art, there wasn't one question over the
    three days that he couldn't answer. He had a great personality and made our long days in traffic jams fun and a wonderful experience.
    The driver Alex was a very calm driver and helped make the drive from one point of interest to the next nice and relaxed which is not always the case on tour buses. I thank Aventura Travel for making our visit to St. Petersburg very memorable.

    Excellent 3 day tour. Our guide Stan was knowledgeable and helpful. Price was very competitive too

    Saw so many great things and had a very knowledgeable and experienced guide Stanislavsky who looked after us so well. Although there could have been up to 15 people in our group in fact there were only 4 of us which made the whole experience very efficient and a good use of time with queuing and waiting around kept to a minimum.
