Just back from our Baltic cruise . Luckily , I spotted advice on line about a Russian girl who provides a tailor made tour . (It costs little more than the hectic cruise packages) . We were met by our delightful guide , Irina, and her driver whisked us away to see ALL the main attractions with pre-booked entrance tickets... More

Arrived by Cruise ship in St Peterburg, immediately it appears different, strange kind of atmosphere to the place. Booked to go on the Shore excursion so off the ship at 9:00am and away to some truly spectacular sights and palaces around St Petersburg. I personally found everything very rushed and the use of camera's around some of the tourist sights... More

Having never been to St Petersburg before and not wishing to miss anything significant I booked this 2 day tour with P&O. The tour covered (not in order) the Hermitage, Catherine's Palace, Peterhof gardens, Church of our Saviour on Spilled Blood, Peter & Paul Cathedral, a local market, the Metro , a canal boat tour and Hydrofoil ride, and lots...

We went to see a Ballet Show on the 1st day at st Petersburg, considering we paid $145 per person, we were expecting a really extraordinary venue and show. Instead the venue looked like a Town Hall, the chairs were uncomfortable and all on same level. Therefore it was difficult to see the ballet as quite a few tall people... More

Thought St Petersburg Russia was a beautiful city- however the cruise lines have to start staggering their tours into this city and other Baltic cities. For the two days we were in this city - much of it was waiting on lines to enter the Hermitage and Peterhof's - approx. 1 1/2 hours Then a rush through the palaces. The... More

Our guide was Lena who was personable, engaging and very informative about everything we saw and asked. Our driver was Igor who kept us safe as we moved from one amazing venue to another.... More

I booked with Alla Tours which cost 300 US dollars. I had two hectic, completely filled days in St. Petersburg. The guide was Svetlana and the driver Alexei - both of whom were terrific. She was so knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and showed the group of 14 so much. We travelled in a mini-bus through St Petersburg's terrible traffic and covered every... More

A full itinerary was pre-booked fir you, meals on board were excellent, as was the cabin... More

DONT panic! when thinking about booking a tour through a Russian company instead of going through your cruise ship, we checked different Russian companies and found that SPB offered everything we wanted to see and do. Viktoria who runs SPB sorted everything out, she was there to meet us in St Petersburg and introduced us to our guide Larisa, instead... More
