This excursion exceeded our expectations. As a family of 4 (including an elderly person with some mobility challenges) we needed to have a personalized, private experience at an accommodating pace and with guaranteed tickets for our wish list. Our two day tour included entrances to Catherine's summer palace, the Hermitage, Peter and Paul Fortress, St Isaac's, Church on Spilled Blood and the Fabergé museum. Plus stops at several viewpoints, easy and safe walking transfers at our pace, and so much more. Our tour guide Katherine /Ekaterina/ was very knowledgeable about history, culture and the arts at each stop, and resourceful in terms of the tour logistics. The Mercedes mini-bus was clean, new and very comfortable (my husband may have had a nap en route) and the driver was excellent.

Fantastic and eye opening tour of imperial and present day St Petersburg. Great driver and guide. Very knowledgable, prompt and efficient. Would highly recommend. Family of four tour in a people carrier over two days coming off a cruise ship. Privately arranged using recommendation from friends.

We have used this agency for a 2 day visit of St. Petersburg. They have shown us the old Tsar houses and explained us details about the lifestyle of the era. They have also shown us the city in itself and have brought us on a boat ride that was amazing. Our familly speaks French and they were able to provide us a guide who speaks French and could explain everything well. The car/bus they have provided was very clean and modern and the driver was always there waiting for us. Overall a very good experience.
