We recently returned from a cruise that included St Petersburg, Russia. We had a private tour with SPB Tours. Our guide Alexandra and our driver Igor were very knowledgeable. We saw more in two days that we otherwise would have with ships tours. I highly recommend this tour company and suggest that you look into private tours as they are... More

We just did a two day family tour of St Petersburg with our 6 and 3 year old boys. I can thoroughly recommend Best Guides and particularly Svetlana Starkova who ran an amazing customized, flexible tour focused on our kids. We got to see the places we wanted to see, but she mixed in kid-focused approaches, games, treasure hunts and... More

My wife and I used Irina kochkina as our guide for 3, eight hour plus days. Each day Irina met us at the cruise ship port. Irina was very knowledgeable, professional and an enjoyable person to be with. We incorporated sites that we wanted to see along with the must see sites of St. Petersburg. Irina was very amendable to... More

I started planning my tour with Kira about 8 months in advance. I made some changes to my itinerary along the way and she was very prompt and easy to work with. My tour guide Olga was the BEST! Very personable, knowledgeable, and intelligent. She had our heads spinning with her knowledge of history along with the beautiful sights we... More

We came from New Zealand and planned two nights in St Petersburg then the train to Moscow for two days. The 'Best Guides' in both cities were absolutely amazing and knew exactly what we wanted (and needed) to see in a day. The guides in both cities were informative and their command of the English language excellant. If you only... More

PROS - Great email communication before our cruise. They made everything very easy. Always got back with me quickly. Let me change up the itinerary a couple times before we got there. Didn't have to pay anything up front. They provided tourist visas we needed to debark our cruise ship. Our tour guide was quite nice. She knew very good... More
