Sadly we had to cancel our trip due to corona virus epidemics. The refund was issued very fast and overall I am very happy with the service level of this company. Hopefully we will travel next year and I will book with them again.

Jan 2020
We had only 2 days in St Petersburg and wanted to make the most of it. Booking a guided tour with City Break was the key to success. Our guide Alex was exceptional. She told us everything about the Russian history without making us feel overwhelmed. The van was clean and comfy. Top notch quality.

Memorable trip with City Break Tours
Sep 2019 • Couples
Our 2 days in St Petersburg were as splendid as could be.we were lucky to have good weather but most of all to have Elizabeth as our guide thanks to her knowledge and nice personality we enjoyed every step of the way on this tour.

The canal trip and some free time for shopping in the downtown were my favorite activities. group was small size 15 people and it was comfy to move around.

I recommend this company and this guide to anyone without hesitation.

An excellent small group excursion
Sep 2019
Our guide was Marina and she was friendly and helpful as much as knowledgeable.she navigated us through the streets and the museums avoiding the lines with grace and easily answered all questions. She accommodated our needs and timed each visit so as not to feel rushed. The tour schedule was well organized and in general well worth the money compared to the cruise ship's tours. We had 2 long days but fascinating and fun. Having lunches in local places was not expensive.
I would definitely recommend these tours for anyone who hasn't visited St.Petersburg or has a limited time and wish to see it all

Wonderful 2day tour! Instead of paying a high priced tour thru the cruise ship, we went with this semi private tour 13 people! Our guide Irennia was so informative, and so organized! She made sure we were ahead of the crowds and the bus was always right there to pick us up from site to site! She was wonderful! I would recommend this tour, it was perfect for a 2 day stop!

A Wonderful Organised Tour of St Petersburg
Aug 2019
We had a 2 day tour jammed packed with sites and a canal cruise which gave us a great insight into the history of St Petersburg. Our tour guide Daria was superb. Friendly, knowledgeable, and professional. The only minor criticism I have is that she was a little hard to understand. Especially early in the tour but got better as it progressed.
Overall it was an excellent tour. The Architecture, Palaces, History and Stories were something very special as I would never have imagined a visit to Russia.

Mini St. Petersburg 2-day tour
Jul 2019 • Friends
An excellent company for a great tour of St. Petersburg, Russia!
Tour guide, Alina, was knowledgeable and thorough on explaining details and history of Palaces and museums. I loved the Boat tour of the magnificent canal!
As we are all Plant-based, vegan friends, she took the time to find us Vegan places to dine for lunch on our 2-day tour!

I will definitely book tours with TripAdvisor again!

Very well organized tour! Our guide Alina has very good English and knowledge about the places. She had accommodated with our request for vegan lunch and diligently read up the reviews of a list of vegan restaurants, we appreciate that and enjoyed very much of our lunches. Initially we couldn't get enough people to form the minimum group size, however the agency accepted us as doesn't want to leave us without able to book a tour (our ship arrive at a later timing and not able to join the normal tours), very sweet of them! Later on we get 12 in total due to the good reviews of the tour. All's well!

Best Sightseeing in St Petersburg
Aug 2019
Great sights to visit in this fantastic city. Our guide's English skills, knowledge and kind personality made us enjoy this tour to the maximum. We would never be able to see that many attractions with the cruise ship at such price and with such good treatment. Perfect quick trip to st petersburg for 2 days. We will definitely book with Trip Advisor again!

Great introduction to St Petersburg
Aug 2019 • Couples
Me and my wife did the tour in St. Petersburg with a tour guide Valerie and driver Dmitri. Both really knew and liked what they were doing on this tour. Valerie was informative respectful and added much to that experience. Our bus accommodated only 15 passengers . This is why it was a comfortable experience. St. Petersburg is a lovely city with a lot of stories and history between every wall. You just need to have the right guide for such tour. The fountains of peterhof was the mix of the old and the new. Beautiful to see.
Consider this tour option as it’s the best.
