  • This tour was great Mikael knew his history and was very pleasent and made our day fantastic. would recommend it to any one on a cruise. So easy no visa all done for us. he has a good rapport with others. No stress what so ever

  • Had a great experience seeing highlights of St. Petersburg. The tour guide Lena was excellent informative, pleasant, good sense of
    humor. I liked that it was a small group only 7 of us which allowed us more flexibility. I felt that I saw the most I could see and do in
    such a short time in St. Petersburg. Alexei Volkov with Maxibalt tours was very accomadating and when out of his way to make sure
    the tour was enjoyable. I would recommend this tour.

  • This one day tour was made especially for us! The owner of the tour company took us himself on the last part of the tour, as others on the tour were doing a two day tour. Very Friday, personable and accommodating. I recommend MaxiBalt tours and will use Viator in the future.
