I didn't write a review 8 years ago when our group of 6 used Red October Tours. I worked with them via the net explaining what I wanted to see. Between us we came up with a good plan. My regret is that we didn't go thru Peter the Great's gardens. We were met by our guide and driver. We... More

Our tour guide Alona and driver Gen were the best. Don't try to do this on your own. Our foursome booked in the US. Although the US-based guy provided some misinformation about how many copies we needed of everything and scared us a little about "you must all stay together always, including going to the bathroom," our guide and driver...

Our family of four chose Red October for our two day cruise stop in St Petersburg and couldn't have been happier. After clearing passport control on both days Alonna, our guide and Ghenna, our driver were waiting to whisk us away. Alonna was fantastic. Her knowledge of Russian history taught us all so much and her knowledge of the different... More

Being a wardens daughter - I did not tell my parents I was using a non RCL company to offshore in St. Petersburg (as they scared me to bits about the need to book through the cruise line) but I can only tell you it was the best decision I ever made in my life travelling and after I got... More

If you are on a cruise ship and only have two days to see St. Petersburg, hiring a personal guide is the only way to go. We saw SO much more than our cruise buddies and did not wait in a line once! Dealing with Red October was a seamless experience and everything was as ordered and as planned. Dimytri... More

A group of six visited St. Petersburg and spent three days seeing museums, palaces, and so much more using Red October's tour guide and driver. Dmitry was an excellent and knowledgeable guide who is passionate about the history and culture in St. Petersburg. Sergei, the driver of the van, was very calm in all the traffic and with our various... More

Firstly I would like to express my sincere thanks to our amazing guide, Helen Oxina, who worked for Red October. We were a party of 8 people and had arranged a 2 day tour of St Petersburg, August 6th and 7th. From the moment we first met Helen she immediately put us at ease, introduced herself to our group and... More

Dmitry was the highlight of my first experience in Russia and i was totally impressed with his knowledge, enthusiasm and execution of the places chosen for our tour. And for added enjoyment he pick out "off the... More

Alona was our guide and is possibly the best guide we have ever had. She led our group of 8 on a tour of all the sites we wanted to see. She is extremely knowledgable, funny and caring. This is an intense city to visit as there is so much to see but we had early tickets for all the... More
