I planned a trip to Saint Petersburg, Russia and had a difficult time finding a tour company that would offer me a tour to what I wanted to see as a single person at a price I could afford. I was only in the city for one day, but Red October Tours, right from my first contact with Galina, has been outstanding and took care of all the details. Upon arrival after lengthy passport control lines, I was met by a wonderful guide, Tania, who introduced me to our great driver, Vitaly. Tania is incredibly knowledgeable and kind, her English impeccable. Not only did they take me places I wanted to visit, but they also took me to places that I would have missed. This included canal boat ride, a true highlight, Vitaly stopping so I could take pictures and Tania teling me so many things about the city. Tania was so wonderful, answering questions and showing and telling me things that were meaningful to me. This was my first international trip, and I do not speak Russian, yet I felt safe and welcome. We spent a long day, ending with the Hermitages and Tania tailoring the highlights to my interests as well as a few awesome exhibits that I did not know about. I never felt rushed or questions left unanswered. It was a highlight of my trip, to be in Saint Petersburg accompanied by Tania. Vitaly was an excellent driver, getting us through the traffic safely. I recommend this tour company in the highest regard and hope someday to visit again soon to see more of the city with Tania.
