Wheelchair accessible private tour
May 2019 • Couples
Alexei with MaxiBalt answered all my questions before our tour and all the arrangements were great. An accessible van made it easier. An excellent guide, Veronica, knew the sites and history as well as the wheelchair entrances and routes. We were able to see everything promised in our very full two days of touring. Overall a wonderful choice for a customized private tour.

Highlight of my cruise
Apr 2019 • Friends
Alexie was absolutely the best at organizing our tour. I had communicated with him my desire to attend a milonga, (tango dance) since we would be in St. Petersburg overnight. The one we were planning on attending didn't answer the phone so he located another one where everything was wonderful.

The tango director on the ship was not happy with me but everyone else was so jealous of the wonderful time we had.

Marina was our guide for the two days and she was so knowledgeable and entertaining. I felt that we got to have an inside look on life in St. Petersburg. We did so much in our two days and one night. If you have the opportunity to book a tour with Alexie, don't hesitate!.

Our milonga excursion was so special and not advertised so if you have something special that you would like to see or do in St. Petersburg, Alexie is you go-to person.

St Petersburg in two days
Sep 2018 • Couples
We were on a Baltic cruise and were scheduled to be in St Petersburg on 27 & 28 September 2018, due to bad weather we did not arrive until 28 September 2018. I was worried that our 2 day tour would turn into one day. I emailed Alexei, the tour operator, with my concerns, he replied that nothing would change. This was incredible news as St Petersburg was a highlight of our cruise. Our disembarkation was a slow process due to Russian immigration, nothing to do with the tour operator. Our tour guide was Veronika. She was a lovely girl, very fluent in English, also very knowledgeable of Russian history. Our first stop was the Hermitage Museum, fortunately we were on a tour and avoided the long queues. We then went onto The Church of the Savior on Spilled Blood, check it out on the internet. For something different we were taken on the St Petersburg subway, longest escalator and deepest subway in the world. We left the main group at this point and had some traditional Russian pies with Alexei. The next day we were picked up early and started with a tour of the canals. A bit chilly but spectacular. We then proceeded to Peterhof Palace where we saw the amazing grounds and gardens. This was followed by a traditional Russian lunch of borscht, dumplings and pancakes. Very yummy. We then went onto see Catherine's palace, the Amber room was amazing. Sad we couldn't take photos. The main tour group went back to the ship and we went onto the Faberge museum followed by some souvenir shopping. All of our experiences in Russia were amazing, I think this was due to Maxbaltours.

Wow!
Sep 2018 • Couples
From first making contact with Alexie to book a 2 day excursion some weeks prior to the arrival dates, until farewells to him and his team (Anna and Oleg) we have nothing but positive things to say.

Anna was very knowledgeable and freely shared this with the small group that made up our tour party. Oleg was a careful and considerate driver and made sure we were safely transported from the cruise ship, around St. Petersburg and back to the ship.

St. Petersburg and the places visited were amazing and we were enthralled by the history and architecture.

We were blessed with unusually good weather for the time of the year.

Everything - Alexei, Anna, Oleg, our new friends from the USA who we joined in the tour party, the wonderful sights of St Petersburg and the weather all contributed to making this a WOW experience.

Brilliant couple of days.
Sep 2018 • Couples
Brilliant couple of days with Sasha, our guide and Andrew, the driver. Marvellous pair.
Picked up promptly from the cruise terminal and dropped back again with no problems.
Sasha was very informative about the history and culture of St Petersburg and in general about life in Russia.
She managed to get us through the crowds with ease without making it feel like a school trip!
Managed to see all we wanted to including a marvellous Russian Folklore evening show which we would highly recommend.
Thank you so much to Alexei for his prompt reply to emails prior to visit and his bringing us back from the show in the evening.

Exceeded Expectations!
Sep 2018
What a great experience! Victoria, our Guide, and Serge the driver were fantastic. This tour was in a comfortable Mercedes van (much better than a big impersonal bus). The itinerary was great and the price better than that of the tour offered by our ship. Incredibly, they furnished my husband (who uses a walker) a wheelchair and someone to push him so he could enjoy the museums and gardens. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable about the finest details on the history, architecture and art of every place we went. Very impressive. I highly recommend this tour

Amazing tour of St. Petersburg
Aug 2018 • Couples
My husband and I booked a 2-day tour including the Faberge Museum with Maxibalttours. Our tour guide, Lisa, and the van driver, Ivan, were absolutely the most informative and pleasant of any tours I've taken with any company. Lisa was so much fun and had tremendous enthusiasm for all the sites of St. Petersburg. Ivan was incredibly efficient and was never late at the pickup points around the city. I highly recommend this tour agency and it made our trip to St. Petersburg perfect in every way.

st Petersburg tour
May 2018 • Couples
we arrived in saint petersburg in Russia and were met by Alexei (maxi balt tours) and Maryann a (tour guide) the two days were wonderful and we could not have asked for a better guide her knowledge of the attractions and saint petersburg were second to none.
we were also joined by 6 other aussies (what a coincidence) and each day was so full on.
we were met at cruise ship and dropped off all on time
our driver Andre was excellent we were glad he was driving and not us
the museums and castles were breathtaking.
we have an open mind to Russia now that we have visited and would love to go back and have a better look and visit Moscow
we can not thank them all enough
do yourselves a favour and if ever in saint petersburg do the 2 day excursions through "trip advisor" and or catch up with Alexei from MaxiBalt Tours.
