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!

Kate was our tour guide for three days in St Petersburg. We had heard of Julia through trip advisor. They customized the three days based on our interests. The pace was good and we felt we had seen everything we wanted by the end of the three days. It was especially nice they could arrange the 70 year Victory Day... More

My husband and I shared a lovely day with Julia at Catherine's Palace. She's quick to respond to your questions and willing to cater to your needs. She met us promptly at the hotel and shared many great stories about the architecture and history of the city as we traveled to the palace. We were lucky that we booked her... More

Our family (two adults and our 8 year old daughter) enjoyed three days in St Petersburg with guide services provided by Dancing Bear. Julia met us at the train station - even after we missed our originally scheduled train from Moscow - and Vladimir drove us to our hotel. The following day, Victoria collected us at our hotel and proceeded... More

I cannot recommend Dancing Bear Tours more highly. My boyfriend and I went to St. Petersburg for 6 days and spent 3 of them with Kate, one of the Dancing Bear tour guides. I actually looked forward to our days with Kate, because she is so fun and friendly and engaging. I am well versed in history and St. Petersburg... More

Julia arranged an ideal trip for our interest - sites of the Bolsevik Revolution. The highlights were a private tour of historic areas of the Somnly Institute (from whence Lenin launched the Rvolution, and now of office of the mayor) and the rooms of the Winter Palace/Hermitage where the Provisional Government had its last meeting and were arrested by th...

We had an amazing time touring St. Petersburg with dancing bear tours. Since we were only in St. Pete's for one day we wanted to see as much as we could, thus we booked a private tour. Correspondence and booking with Julia was fast and clear. Our driver Mr. Vlad, and guide Victoria met us at the airport for a... More

We were very fortunate to have Julia as our guide, with "Vladimir the Great" as our driver, for our 5 days in St Petersburg. Julia arranged everything to perfection and included all the things on our wish list over the time. The visit was action packed and we would not have been able to see so much without their organisation... More
