We booked this as an alternative to the ship run trips on our Baltic Cruise. We got a much better price than if we'd gone with the ship and had a truly memorable 2 days packed with all the essential sights in and around St Petersburg. The trip (the 2 day Deluxe tour) was organised especially for us as normally... More

We found SPB Tours with recommendations and took a chance.... and it could not have been BETTER!

My husband & I chose to do 3 tours with SPB while on a Scandinavia Russia Celebrity cruise in July 2014. SPB has a progressive discounted pricing schedule so the more tours you buy, the more you save. They are the most trusting honest touring company requiring no deposit and payment at the end of the tour. We chose their... More
