We just returned from a Baltic cruise on Holland America, and in St. Petersburg, we used Dancing Bear as a private guide. We like to say we did St. Petersburg on steroids.

This was our second visit to St. Petersburg with Dancing Bear Tours. We had so good a time with them in 2007 with a group of only 4, that I chose to arrange a group through a roll call for Marina in June of 2015. Ultimately, we were a group of 14 on a bus that would have held 18... More

We had a wonderful 2 days with Eugenia in St.Petersburg. The tour was top notch. She was incredibly smart and was able to answer all of our one-off questions about Russia. The tour was organized well, and we avoided crowds and long lines. She even bought a beautiful gift for my sister in law because it was her birthday. Thank... More

Thank you Julia for an action-packed 2 days! We are a family of 5 (2 adults/3 teens) and we opted for a private 2-day "active" itinerary and we got it! Natalia was super knowledgable, spoke English well and kept us moving non-stop the entire time. We felt like we saw and did as many things as we possibly could in... More

Our cruise itinerary on the Regal Princess included a two day visit in St. Petersburg. We arranged a two day private tour with Dancing Bear for two couples. Olga was our tour guide. She was extremely knowledgeable. Her English was excellent. We joked that she sounded like Natasha from Rocky and Bullwinkle but she was easy to understand. She was... More

We arranged tour for four of us when we arrived upon the Serenade of the Seas. We were a bit late due to customs and immigration however that did not in any way detract from our wonderful day with our guide, Victoria, and driver, Edward. We corresponded with Julia arranging our tour and deciding what sights we wished to see... More

We had used walking tours there and knew we would be ready for a touch of luxury by the time we hit St Petersburg and luxury is what we got.

I contacted Dancing Bear Tours about arranging several half-day tours of St. Petersburg and Julia put together a wonderful program for us. Communication was very quick and efficient - a real quality experience. I have taken many private tours, with both large and small companies, and I must say Victoria was the best!
