We had a two day cruise stopover in St Petersburg and decided we would prefer a tour with a private independent company rather than the tours offered by the cruise line for various reasons – smaller groups so less time queuing and waiting for latecomers, an itinerary tailored to what we wanted to see if necessary, and probably a better...

With only two days in St. Petersburg, we did not have time to see everything we wanted to see, but Marina Wilson Private Tours devised an itinerary which maximized the value of the time available. The paperwork Marina provided got us through Russian immigration without a problem. (As an aside, we couldn't help but be unimpressed by the lugubrious countenances... More

Just returned from a Baltic cruise in August with my children and chose Marina Wilson Tours for my St. Petersburg excursion. I did a lot of research and was very happy with my choice. I sent many emails to Marina discussing the itinerary and she was very quick to respond always answering my questions and offering suggestions. I was concerened... More

In preparation for a three-day cruise stopover in St. Petersburg we contacted several different tour operators to discuss private tour arrangements. While they all responded to our inquiries, Marina showed a depth of interest in our desires that no other tour operator could match. She was very prompt in answering our endless questions and worked diligently to craft a program... More

My wife and I just returned from a wonderful time in St Petersburg and its surroundings. I write wonderful both because the city is beautiful and safe - no unrest whatsoever in spite of rumours in connection with the Ukrainian conflict - and thanks to the professional, pleasant and insightful guides we had: Marina and Irina provided us with a...

We had a private tour of the Russian Museum and effectively a private tour of the Hermitage. Olga was our tour guide and she was supremely well organized, very knowledgeable about selecting works to focus on and telling us about them. We learned so much more than we ever could have done on our own. Marina Wilson is a to... More

Marina Travel did an excellent job of arranging tours of the specific sites we requested. Marina herself was a super tour guide and we appreciated that she was flexible in adjusting some of the original itinerary to see other sites. We attended the ballet one night and had a great tour of Peterhof , Church of the Spilled Blood, and... More

I can only echo excellent ratings given to Marina Wilson in Trip Advisor reviews. Marina has many guides which she tries to match to her clients' interest, background, etc. We were a party of four with somewhat limited physical capabilities. Working with us by email she was able to plan an itinerary which suited us perfectly, even to the extent... More
