Fantastic customer service
May 2020 • Family
We were supposed to come for a tour in August that was canceled due to Covid. Anastasia promptly refunded all of our money with no questions asked. They were very flexible on guaranteeing us another tour in the future or refunding our money. I will definitely plan to use them without hesitation the next time we can get to Russia. Thank you so much for your understanding and help!

Professionalism and integrity
May 2020
We were really looking forward to the customized shore excursion with this company. They did a wonderful job of helping to plan two wonderful days in a city that we have long wanted to visit.
Sadly, we needed to cancel our tour with Anastasia due to travel restrictions. This is where Anastasia really shined. They were respectful, understanding and prompt in responding to our request for a re-schedule or refund. Due our circumstances we required a refund. And Anastasia followed through extremely quickly.
Though it may be some time before we can go, we look forward to booking again with Anastasia in the future. We would not hesitate for a moment to work with this company as they demonstrated great reliability and trustworthiness.

Perfect family tour
Aug 2019
My family and I did a private tour with Anastasia Travel on August 5. The tour guide picked us up at our cruise terminal with a private van that escorted us through the city. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable of the area. We visited Peterhof as well as Catherine's Palace. She was patient with our younger children and answered our many questions.

Amazing Day in St. Petersburg
Aug 2019
We took our first Disney Cruise but are not really follow the sign kind of people. Given that visiting St. Petersburg was on our bucket list we couldn't just go with the masses. Everyone on the Disney boards raved about their experience with Anastasia Travel. We were a multi-generational group with 2 kids 5 & 3 and worked with Ekaterina to plan an amazing ... albeit a long one ... day that our family will never forget. Our guide Yvgeny (Eugene) was so knowledgeable and it was interesting to ask him about the Russian culture, how they view the world and current political climate.

We all enjoyed our tour very much and would definitely use them in the future should our travels take us back to the region.

Amazing day never to be forgotten
Aug 2019
We did a 1 day customised trip during our visit on 5th August 2019. Organising this all by email was very easy and the company were happy to work out a plan that would let us see everything we wanted on the day. Our guide Victoria was waiting for us as we arrived and our driver Uri was in the car close by so there was no hanging around. Anastasia really were great atvspecial touches like the welcome bags with water, chocolate biscuits, guide book, ponchos and hand sanitisers for us all. At the end of the tour we were also given a calander, Russian chocolate and a photo of us which they had taken in the morning and then had printed with some of the main sights around us onto an A3 sized canvas-that was a great souvenir that we weren't expecting. These were delivered to us st the end of the day by Anastasia herself. They certainly do know how to impress.
As for the day itself-wow just wow. Victoria and Uri were amazing all day. Nothing was too much trouble. Everywhere we went we had front of the line tickets which were a godsend as some places were VERY busy with long queues.
We managed to pack in a quick city tour. Peterhoff, Faberge museum, Catherine's place and the church of the Spilled blood - in about 9 hrs. It was a crazy busy day but worth it.
To illustrate how far they will go to make your day how you want it my son is football mad. He buys a football shirt from every country we visit. At the end of our day Victoria and Uri sought out the official club shop of the St Petersburgh football team, drove us back into town and took us to the shop. The people there were great and after my son bought a shirt they gave him some free stuff as were very impressed that we had travelled from the UK and ended up in their shop 😎.
We could not have asked for more from Anastasia travel and would not hesitate to use them again. It was worth every penny.

St Petersburg 2 day private tour
Aug 2019
We had an amazing time in St Petersbury on our 2 day private tour. Mike, our guide, was so knowledgeable and answered all questions we had. Uri, our driver, was the sweetest man ever and always on time picking us up. Everything went so smoothly and we had no long waits anywhere. I would definitely recommend Anastsia to friends and family and would use them again if we are lucky enought to go back to St Petersburg. Thank you so much for everything!!

St Petersburg private tour
Aug 2019
Venus was our guide for this tour and she is just fantastic. We felt so comfortable with her. So patient and kind with the 3 of us.told us a lot about the history of the places we visited. She answered our questions clearly. We even had lunch the Russian way. The driver (forgot his name) is such a gentleman. He informed us of places to dine and about the melons we saw for sale on the street. He was always on time. We wouldnot have been able to visit all the places we planned if not for the private tour. Imagine having to queue for 1 1/2 hours just to enter the Hermitage, but for us it was entry right away. No waiting. I would book with them again should I have the chance to go back to St Petersburg (such a lovely place)

Fantastic way to visit all of St Petersburg
Aug 2019
Anastasia Travel is a great way to visit St Petersburg. The set up of the tour was great, our mails were answered very fast and very accurate. The private tour was great, we had of course a great guide, Elena, she knew everything of St Petersburg. Our driver knew exactly how to get everywhere. They take you to the metrostations, which were beautifull. We had a private boat tour, just the 4 of us on the boat. Very special. It is worth every dollar we paid. At the end we got some nice presents. I would reccomend this private touring to everyone. We really loved it.

Amazing 2 day custom tour
Aug 2019
4 of us spent an amazing 2 day tour with Oxana as our guide and Vladimir as our driver. Even before the tour any question I has was promptly and kindly answered. Everything went smoothly from our pick up after immigration to entry to all of the sites. They even stopped at 3 pharmacies to help me find contact lens solution! The 1st evening we went to the ballet and they were there smiling to take us home. Oxana’s knowledge and smile helped make this an amazing experience. Don’t hesitate, book it!

St. Petersburg tour while travelling on Disney cruise
Aug 2019 • Family
We booked Anastasia for a private tour when visiting during a Disney Cruise. They were EXCELLENT! They customized a tour for our family for two days. Also, they were flexible in making changes during the tour. It was safe, affordable and we had an excellent time! We travelled with out 8 and 12 year old children. It was nerve wracking to book with a foreign company but they have been one of the best tour companies we have worked with in our travels. I don’t often leave reviews however I was nervous about booking and so wanted to share our experience!!!!
