We took both the hydrofoil to St Petersburg as well as the river cruise of St Petersburg and the Gulf of Finland on our last day of our trip to St Petersburg. We did not ask for English audio guides as we simply wanted to have a calm view of the city. The prices for alcohol and food is very... More

This tour was decent, but in Russian only (their brochures talk about English language, but maybe not until middle of summer?). The live Russian monologue was nonstop and monotone, but was OK because I sat outside, despite the wind and chill (she was inside talking). This 1.5 hour tour goes up and down all the canals/rivers and is pretty comprehensive.... More

This company operates from the "pier with Lions". We didn't even take the tour due to the poor costumer service offered. There are plenty of boat tours just choose another one.

St Pete is often called Venice of the north. Rightfully so. Crescent shaped canals ring the city, all connecting to Neva River, which appears to be the Grand Canal of its southern sister. Overseas Adventure Travel had arranged for our 16-member tour group to enjoy this excursion on our first day in St Pete. It’s an excellent orientation tour, seeing... More

Lovely boat tour of the canals and places of interest for a bargain price. However, the tour was all in Russian. This didn't spoil the views just disappointed I had no idea what the history of the buildingsun we were passing was

Hello, Emma! Thank you for your comment. Beacuse of not good weather the route of the canal cruise was changed, and the excursion was only in Russian. We apologize that our colleagues didn't inform about that. We will try to avoid such situations in future. More
