We chose the active 2 day tour with a night at the ballet. This afforded us the opportunity to see more of this amazing city and culture than we possibly could have hoped for. Our tour guide and driver were amazing. Our guide, while not Julia herself, spoke perfect English and flawlessly transitioned from talking about the history of the... More

We had a fabulous 2 day tour of beautiful St Petersburg and saw more than we could have wished for. Julia was amazing right from the first email and as we had opted for a private tour, she set about planning an itinerary for us that covered everything we wanted and still worked for the middle of winter. She was... More

Our visit to St Petersburg was one of the highlights of our Baltic cruise trip. Everything went flawless thanks to a well-designed 2-day tour, which Julia helped to arrange a few months in advance, and the team of very friendly and very knowledgeable guide and driver (Kate and Edward) who took us to fascinating places and explained the history and...

We had a fantastic two day tour arranged by Julia. She met us at our cruise ship terminal, gave us a DVD of St. Petersburg and then introduced us to our driver, Gina, and our tour guide, Kate. It was just my husband and I on the tour. We were given the wonderful treatment by both of them. Both of... More

Julia worked with us in advance by email to design a custom two-day tour focused on art and architecture. Turned out perfect. I can't say enough about our guide. She was extremely knowledgable and very professional. She hit just the right balance of adding value, but allowing us to ask questions and absorb everything on our own terms. We saw... More

We could not vault Dancing Bears Tours, Julia picked us up from the cruise ship. We had a small group of 10, our guide Natasha spoke excellent English, and was very knowledgeable. We enjoyed the 2 days in St Petersburg and saw so much, it was the highlight of our cruise. We thoroughly recommend Julia and Dancing Bear Tours.

Hi Dancing Bear Tours,

We are a group of 4 and will have 2 days in St Petersburgh in May 2016 and are wondering if it would be possible to see the following attractions within this time frame or should we delete a couple of attractions? We are arriving by cruise ship

At this stage, we don't think we are interested in museum entrances and internal tours of palaces, we like scenic and photo opportunities

Definitely want to see: Peterhof Palace and gardens

                                                                          Church of the Saviour on Spilled Blood

                                                                            Winter Palace and Hermitage

                                                                          Canal Cruise

                                                                            Peter and Paul Fortress

                                                                          Chesme Church

Maybe a less detail stop at these : Summer Palace

                                                                                                                Vasil Island

                                                                                                                  Russian Cruiser Aurora

                                                                                                                    Catherine Palace ? Time permitting

And in the evening a ballet performance with a city lights return drive

Thank you
