Exceptional service!
Feb. 2020
We have booked a tour with Travel Family Excursions as we wanted a tour that would cover all we wanted and wouldn’t be very strenuous as my husband has some back pain after hours of standing and walking. Lena was a wonderful guide, very knowledgeable and she new history very well. All the museums have opened doors for us and we got in in no time at all, although it was crowded no matter how low season it was. We come from Finland and are very proud of our country and we were very happy to learn about Russian-Finnish relations from the perspective of a local person. Lena showed great respect for our nation and was very nice every step of the way. Faberge eggs are fantastic! So much history! We loved getting into other “unusual” places seeing jewels, diamonds, eggs, golden furniture and amber, malachite, marble interiors. Fantastic time! We would come back and will definitely book Travel Family again as we got everything we wanted. I can not tell enough good words about our driver Dima who made our tour complete: driving in Russia is crazy and you need someone who can drive around those mad drivers in order to get into every museum you want and Dima has definitely made it happen. Great team and great hospitality!

Look no further they are amazing !!!
Jun. 2019
We booked with Travel Family Excursions because our friends recommended them highly. They are very great with details and from the get go talking things over email was very easy. We wanted a private tour and they said no problem to any request I had. I was very worried about visas and getting off the ship as cruise line kept telling us we could not get off the ship if we did not book with them. Our friends, who used this company before told us everything would be alright and still, cruise line almost made me believe them. However, when I made the decision to give it a try I have never regretted it even once. We had the time of our lives with Lena and Dimitri!! Such a joy! Thank you so much for taking such great care of me and my husband and for becoming great friends. Places Lena recommended for lunch and dinner were they best places we have been to on this trip! Lena was a walking encyclopedia and answered any question. She has really uncovered this mysterious country for us! We would definitely come back as we feel there is so much more to see!
Lena got us into museums in no time and that really was a game changer as we could see so much more! She knew her Hermitage very well, so well that we could always make nice photo stops without people spoiling the view. Amazing quality!
Thank you so very much and it will not be long until we meet again! Come to Florida! XX

Amazing Experience
May 2019 • Couples
We visited St.Petersburg as part of our Baltic Cruise and had booked our tour before leaving Sydney. The pre tour correspondence was excellent so we knew exactly what we had to do when we arrived. We were met at the ship terminal by Eugene, Elena and Dimitri. This was the beginning of two fantastic, informative days. Elena was a brilliant guide and Dimitri was a great driver and Eugene joined us for lunch on the second day.
St.Petersburg is a beautiful City with some unbelievable historical museums, buildings, cathedrals and gardens and the only way to see it all is with Travel Family Excursions

Gotta visit the place again!
May 2018 • Friends
I always wanted to visit Russia, so I booked a VISA-Free trip to St. Petersburg, filled with many activities, such as visiting cathedrals, palaces and one great folkshow (also bars and restaurants) or sailing the canals of the city. Our guide Lena took care of every business thing, so the process of getting into our hostel and destinations was really smooth, everything was ready for us, we didn´t need to manage anything except for food. She knew a lot about her city and all the destinations, but was also a friendly and cheerful companion, able to give us tips for our free time as well (like visiting metro stations - seriously guys, the metro in St. Petersburg is not only one of the deepest in the world. It is a beautiful museum with an entrance fee of 0.6 Euro!!!). The instructions were always clear, so we knew what to do and when - the trip was organised very good and Lena´s english was easy to understand. As a special bonus, we got a great weather and a troop review with all the streets decorated and fighter planes thudding, up in the sky, as it was close to the celebration of the 9th of May. All in all, I really had a great time and I wished to spend more days (weeks... time) in this nice city.

Oct. 2017 • Friends
I had the pleasure of getting Eugene as a travel guide. He was very nice, down to earth and informative. It was easy to keep a conversation with him during the trip. I'd definitely recommend this trip since St. Petersburg is one of the most beautiful cities I've seen and there is so much history that only with a guide will the trip be fully satisfying.

Great time, great memories!
Apr. 2017 • Solo
I participated to this trip in April '17! We had a great time in St. Petersburg, definitely a city I fell in love with! Thanks to our tourguide Eugene those days were perfectly organized and provided a great mixture between Russian culture, Russian history and time for sightseeing in a beautiful venue. Our tourguide could answer any question we had with fundamental (historical) knowledge and some personal anecdotes. This was exactly what I expected from a guided trip through Russia. For sure, I would book this trip again and can highly recommend it to anyone who is interested in more than just the well-known sights of St. Petersburg. Thanks a lot for those memories! 5 Stars!

Lifetime memories with Eugene and Elena
Jun. 2017 • Solo
Amazing experience in one of the most beautiful cities in Russia!

Great guiding and fantastic food recommendations from Eugene - thanks to him, I got really into the Russian Cuisine :)

Overall, Eugene and Lena were super-helpful and went above and beyond: when I lost my phone they helped me to write a police report at the Police Station and I got some back with my Insurance company thanks to them!!!!

Thumbs up!

Tour in St.Petersburg
Jul. 2017 • Solo
This trip was amazing, went from Finland to St.Petersburg for the first time in my life and Eugene was giving a lifelong experience to me. He know every little secret which could make the trip more exciting, and showed some really local places, which was good, since I usually go for these kind of things. Felt more like some trip with friends and not some organized tour :)
