This was a trouble free way to visit St Petersburg, found the visit to the hermitage was over too quickly and very crowded but that is travel. So pleased with SPB that we used them again in Stockholm and again very very pleased.

The Baltic cruise through Celebrity was our dream trip. I booked SPB on a friend's recommendation that was endorsed by my travel agent. I booked 2 St Petersburg tours that from our ship were too expensive to take and SPB's itinerary was more thorough. The booking process and help I received were truly commendable. Sadly we never got to go due to the Covid-19 pandemic. With all I needed to cancel with varying degrees of hassle, SPB was a beacon of excellent customer service from the beginning to the end. They were the first source to refund our money with courtesy and kindness. We will use them again exclusively in any country they operate. Thank you, SPB!!

You could not fault any part, from the pick up, the transport, the locations, the food, the return to the ship, and especially the guides. What more could you need or want.

My family and a few friends booked through SPB to do two tours while we were at port in St. Petersbur. SPB was really easy to work with, and answered questions right away before we even arrived. Both of our tour guides were very nice, spoke English really well, and I thought they were genuinely helpful. St. Petersburg is beautiful, and it was nice not having to worry about scheduling or getting a visa when going with this tour company. We would definitely go with them again.

We used SPB for every shore excursion on our Baltic cruise. Every tour, especially the two-day tour in St. Petersburg, was very well done. The smaller groups made a huge difference as we were able to have some flexibility in what we wanted to see and how much time we spent at each location. Highly recommend!
