Family and I (husband and two daughters, 13 & 14) just finished a 2-day tour of St. Petersburg with Aventura Travel. We were on a Holland America (Rotterdam) cruise of the Baltic. Rather than taking one of the ship's shore excursions, as suggested by tripadvisor we took a private tour through Aventura Travel. The tour was easy to book.

We had a nice new Mercedes van with driver (Anatoliy) and guide (Andrey) and just the four of us. We only paid a little more than our fellow cruiser who were on big buses of 40-50 people and we got a LOT more out of the experience. We saw all of the highlights of St. Petersburg in just two days, and the tour was totally flexible to fit our needs. I would recommend just going with your own family or close friends as it is only a little more than adding others to your group. Then, if you want to spend half a day in souvenir shops or skip them altogether, no one can complain! Our guide did a great job of keeping us on schedule to cover every single thing that was listed in our package. However, if we had said we weren't interested in part of it and wanted to spend more time at another place, that would have been fine. PLUS, by just having four in our group, we constantly walked straight to the entrance of all the attractions rather than getting in line behind groups.

We couldn't have asked for a better experience. We have travelled to 20+ countries and have toured everything imaginable and have never had as good and thorough and comfortable a tour as we had with Alexander and SPB tours. Couldn't recommend them more. Everything went exactly as they had told us it would.

I am a businessman and I came to St Petersburg for my appointment with the other people in the same business. I looked at the city in the internet and decided to take tour foe my short time in St Petersburg in Aventura Travel I found in the net. I ordered some excursions and a private tour guide with the premium car. After all my business was done I was met by the tour guide. I would like to thank you guys for the tour and I would say the tour was great and interesting. I will recommend Aventura Travel in my city and to everyone.

Karina has been a fantastic guide to S. Petersbourg and sorroundings. The 2 days tour has not missed any interesting spot. We even had a meal in a typical russian restaurant and an amazing boat trip the secon day. No queue for tickets that were ready and included in the price, no loss of time at all. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED !

There are no words to express how perfect it was and I would like to start from a very beginning:)

Any of my questions were answered quickly and clearly.
Pickup was prompt from our ship. We were one of the first off and the company representative was right there, easy to find with my name on a sign. We only had one long day in port and Aventura Travel customized the tour to suit our needs. We like to cover a lot and we sure did between around 7:30am until 10:00 pm. There is no chance we could have done this on our own or with a group tour. Our guide Alexadra had unlimited energy and enthusiasm and knew her beautiful city like no one else. She was well spoken and extremely knowledgeable in all areas.
We travel often around the world and I've never had a guide like her. Yes, she was definitely our mother hen and took great care of us from bathroom stops to a wonderful lunch to making sure we got in to all museums and churches etc... with no waiting.
The driver Adrey was also good and driving smoothly with no rush to let us see all interesting sights:)

I will highly recommend them if you want to maximize your time in Russia with the best!

Me and my wife would like to share our wonderful experience of the shore tour in St Petersburg with (I am sure) best tour operator we have ever used before. Maria from the office was all the time ready to answer all our questions (and there were so many) and finally gave us the best price for the tour (we also compared it with the other tour operators) but when we come to St Petersburg were little bit nerves as we did not know how it worked with the Visa but everything was so smooth and the guide was already there for us. Catherine, our guide was beyond what we ever expected, she was so nice and knowledgeable and brief it was our best tour ever experienced. Thank you

This company was picked after reviewing all the offerings by others agencies in St Petersburg for a one day trip to Moscow. I did send emails to over 10 tours agencies. Most of them were really expensive. But the best value was Aventura Travel.

From the first moment they were very professional with the comunications thru email, providing us with the multiple options we could have in our trip and replying our concerns in very reasonable time. Maria, the trip coordinator, arranged a flawless tour.
They took care of practically everything for us, from picking us at the hotel to escorting us to the door of the highspeed train to Moscow and then the same over in Moscow.

They have two of the most knowledgeable tour guys in St Petersburg and in Moscow; Elena in Moscow and Stanislav in St Petersburg. Both went our their ways to make our tour a very special and informative one. We felt like they were our friends.

Our worries about traveling to a place were a language is a barrier was vanished after having such a great experience with Aventura Travel. We would definitly hire their services again!

We had 3 days after a fabulous Intrepid trip from Beijing. This tour perfectly filled St Petersburgh for us. We ended up being the only couple on tthe tour for most of it. Our guide was knowledgable and thoughtful. Very thankful that a friend recommended Adventura becasue they were great.
