Our party of 5, ranging in age from 13 to 80 years, spent 3 memorable days in St. Petersburg towards the end of June. From the very start the experience was made easy by Julia who answered our initial request and subsequent emails very quickly and helped us customize our visit and suggested reading to help us make the most...

My wife and I spent 3 fantastic days in St. Petersburg thanks to the best tour company one can ask for. As seasoned travelers we started corresponding with several local tour companies months ahead of our cruise to the Baltics. Julia's prompt and professional replies made it easy to select our tour guide in St. Petersburg. Jointly we worked out... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 day private tour with Julia as our guide! She was very efficient in all correspondence prior to our arrival and very flexible in customizing our tour to accommodate all the sights we wanted to see during our 2 day cruise stop. We knew from the warm greeting and big hug we received when we first... More

Two couples spent 2 days in St Petersburg off of a cruise ship. As promised, Olga was waiting for us when we exited customs. We toured the city for about 15 hours the first day with a stop for a traditional Russian lunch and dinner. The second day we spent 8 hours and enjoyed yet another example of a delicious... More

We had 3 days in St Petersburg on a cruise in June and like others I had read the great reviews of Julia and her company, as it was a very busy time unfortunately we couldn't get Julia as our guide but had the lovely Alfeea who was very knowledgeable and showed us all we could see in the 3... More

I booked the two day St Petersburg tour with Julia a couple of months before our Baltic cruise. I have to say, a couple of days before the tour, listening to fellow passengers tell me how brave I was to book with an independent company I was beginning to wonder if I had done the right thing. I needn't have... More

Julia offered us exactly what we wanted from a 2 day tour of the city. We had a private tour - 6 of us in total and it was very intensive - 11 hours on Day 1 and 8 hours on Day 2. Our guide was Natasha whose knowledge and enthusiasm were excellent. We saw the Church on Spilt Blood,... More

For our June tour, Julia helped us plan our itinerary, prepare and organise invitation letters and vouchers and answered a myriad of questions months before we arrived, always responding to our emails within minutes sometimes. We had many problems with our flights and the 3 days tour with Julia became 2 which was a bit sad, as we were really... More

We were on a Baltic Cruise and had three days in St Petersburg. There were four in our group and since we all had been there before, we decided to book a private tour. This turned out to be a wonderful experience. We booked the tour ahead of time and gave Julia Ivanushkina from Dancing Bear a list of the... More

This June our group of seven completed a two day tour of St Petersburg with Julia of Dancing Bear Tours. She was absolutely the best. She had a well paced itinerary that made the most of our time without ever feeling rushed. As one would expect, she was knowledgeable. She was very enthusiastic about her love for the city and...
