What a terrific experience! All the tour options looked pretty similar online. We chose Alla because she includes lunch (one less thing to think about). Our guide was very well informed and humorous. We learned so much and benefited tremendously for not having to wait in lines. Pickup outside the boat and transport to sites couldn't have been smoother. Fortunately, we had good weather. They stocked umbrellas for us just in case.
As you can tell, there is a A LOT to see here. Having lunch time to rest and hydrate was nice for us. The palaces and museums are sensational. The short trip on the subway was a nice glimpse at life in St. Petersburg.

Our tour of St Petersburg with Alla was excellent. The guide was very knowledgeable and accommodating. The driver was pleasant and punctual. The event packed 3 day tour was well worth the price. I highly recommend Alla Tours for worry free enjoyment of St.Petersburg and the surrounding sites.

We have just returned from our holiday in the Baltic. I must say our trip to St. Petersburg is definitely the highlight of our trip. What an amazing city and wonderful experience. Our tour guide, Alexandra Marinskaya, was wonderful. We absolutely loved her. She spoke so well and told such amazing stories that St. Petersburg just became alive. She definitely made our two-day Grand Tour such a joy. My daughters cannot stop talking about her. Also, the tour was filled with such adventure. We saw so much in such a short period of time. Simply, Alla Tours is just fantastic. We have made such wonderful memories of Russia, and more specifically, St. Petersburg and Alexandra.

Booking a tour with Alla Tours is so easy. They answer all your questions and take special care of you. Your special visa required to enter Russia is taken care of by Alla Tours. Our tour guide was waiting for us as we disembarked our ship and away we went for 2 full glorious days of beautiful St. Petersburg.

During our last trip to Europe in June/July 2013, we found Alla Tours very professional, knowledgeable of the history of the 5 countries we visited, caring and protective of their groups, and the tours offered included headphones, lunches and the boat ride topped up the tour in St Petersburg. We went on the Baltic cruise and did excursions organised by Alla tours, and at half the price charged by the cruise liner.

I left my handbag with 2 wallets in a palace bathroom and Dimitri from Alla tours was so quick to respond when I reported it to him. He did not hesitate, rushed back to the foyer to find that an angel had handed it into reception. How lucky was I???

Thanks Dimitri and Alla tours for making our holiday the best yet.

We have just returned from our cruise on P & O Aurora to the Baltic. We booked the 2 day Grand Tour of St Petersburg. We want to thank Anna and our driver Dimitri for two wonderful days. We managed to pack in all the trips offered by the ship in the two days including a lunch at a Russian restaurant and the trip was good value for money. The bus was always in the correct place to meet us and Anna was so knowledgeable and helpful. We enjoyed the packed lunch on the first day and particularly the lunch at the restaurant on the second day. Could not recommend Alla Tours more highly.
