After much research my partner and I decided that tours services were a must for us for an upcoming tour of St. Petersburg. Julia and Dancing Bear Tours confirmed that we made the right decision. I began working with Julia a couple months before our trip with a list of about a dozen attractions. After learning of our interests Julia... More

We were referred to Dancing Bear tours by Bridge to Moscow - the agency we used in Moscow, and the reviews on Trip Advisor made the decision real easy. Julia (who runs the firm) is a bundle of energy, has a great sense of humor and is a multi-tasker par excellence – not only was she very quick to respond... More

Had a wonderful two day tour with Kate from Dancing Bear Tours. Julia made everything easy in terms of visas etc. Julia was quick to respond to our requests and arranged everything beautifully. It was a great visit. We would highly recommend Julia and her team!

Our family of five had a wonderful two days in St.P thanks to Julia and her Dancing Bear team! Julia's pre-tour communication and planning was excellent. Our guide for our time in this spectacular and historic city was Elaina and we can't say enough about her amazing knowledge along with her desire to educate and insure our family had the... More

We arranged a 2 day private tour with car and driver. We were worried about going thru immigration but Julia emailed all the documents and it was a snap. Our guide, Elena, was first class. The most knowledgeable guide I have ever had. Julia runs a first class operation. Way better than a cruise ship tour. The absolute BEST way... More

Have just returned from a cruise that included two days in St. Petersburg. It was the highlight of our trip due in no small part to Julia and her team from Dancing Bear Tours. Our tour guide Elena was exceptional. Her knowledge, organisational skills and personal touch were outstanding. Our driver (Shasha) too did an excellent job, getting us right... More

Julia at Dancing Bear was great to work with both before we arrived and once we were there. Our guide Julia was absolutely fantastic. We had a very packed agenda and she got us to the front of every line, was so knowledgeable and our driver was very attentive. Julia suggested a private canal and river boat trip which was... More

I had last been in St Petersburg in 1978 during the height of the Soviet Union and the Cold War. Returning to this fabulous city for a short 12-hour stopover on the Disney Magic, my college-aged daughter and I sought out a knowledgeable, private guide to help us craft a custom tour to maximize our time ashore. Julia was attentive... More

This is the second time we have gone with Julia and Dancing Bear Tours. Communication with Julia is excellent and she came up with an itinerary that as per our request combined places we had both seen on our previous trip and that were new. Our guide was Kate who was delightful, so knowledgeable, wonderful sense of humor and never... More

My husband and I just returned and we had an amazing time! From the time we met our guide Liza at the ship to the time they dropped us off on our last day we loved it!
