We were in St. Petersburg at the end of December 2018 and TJ Travel organized EVERYTHING for us. From the perfectly set-up van (they even had a microphone in there so that the whole van could hear, although there were only 3 of us), to the perfectly executed stops, the lunch at the Vodka Museum, the sleigh ride (AMAZING and snowy and cold and beautiful) the stop on the sleigh ride for hot tea and crumpets, and their knowledge of the city and how to get around the city - even with some traffic made for one of the best days of our trip. They had absolutely everything organized and knew how to handle the crazy questions of non-locals. I would definitely recommend this.

This is a must excursion for WW2 history buffs. Valeria is highly knowledgeable, engaging and entertaining. We thoroughly enjoyed this tour. It gets you out of the city and congestion of the other typical cruise ship tours available. The museums, monuments and stories fill the day and
Make the time fly by. It is powerful, somber and sobering to be on the same ground that saw so much tragedy and death. A real experience.

I was traveling solo to see the Hermitage in late 2016 and decided to hire a guide for a couple of days to learn more of Saint Petersburg during my time there. I could not have done better than lucking upon Elena. She loves what she does, loves her city and proved to be the ideal guide.

Visiting St. Petersburg with a guide as knowledgeable and passionate as Elena really opens up the city in a way one wouldn't get otherwise. In fact, based on that experience, I'm currently reading a book on the siege of Leningrad. In part because of Elena's enthusiasm, this is a city one leaves wanting to know more about.

I often think back with fondness at my short time there and hope to one day be able to see it again. If I am able to make that happen, I already know the perfect guide.

I enjoyed this tour. Everything was very well organized. St. Petersburg is now my favorite city in Russia. It does not look like an American city, a very old city with a great history.

We had a great opportunity to feel the true soul of Russia.The atmosphere is very special in villages. We visited a nice wooden village house, eat traditional food prepared by grandma and even sing some russian songs. The nature is amazing. Thanks for a great tour

This is the best part of Saint-Petersburg! With our great guide Victoria we had a really good time!
The speed boat called "meteor" is much better than going to Peterhof by car - no traffic jam and going right from the city center.
Good for kids.

Yesterday we had an excursion around the Imperial Porcelain Factory with a master class. We stayed in complete delight. Very interesting exhibits are what to remember and what to remember. I am very culturally enriched. It's great that the guide is fluent in English and understands perfectly well that they ask him. Thanks to this, communication was lively and exciting.

It was a dream of 30 years ago of my father, sister and to visit STP. Oleg has given us three an unforgettable experience. The communication was very good. He explained everything in German, but also in English. He knows what he was talking about: he could have been a historic teacher :-)! He showed us the most beautifull places around STP and told us epic stories about it. For us as Dutch people it was extra interesting to hear about the history of Peter the Great and Holland. We can recommend this tour with Oleg if you want to know al lot of STP in a short time. 👏
