“Victoria River cruise with Uniworld to St. Petersburg”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2013

My husband and I took our very first River Cruise from St. Petersburg to Moscow.
I would describe that this trip surpassed our expectations. The ship was managed by highly professional crew, the food was excellent, the touring was as described in our guide.
It gave us a landscape of a very interesting and historical filled country. It is an ideal way to visit this complex and most interesting place. We met wonderful people on the cruise.
We recommend this cruise to anyone who wants to combine a feeling of adventure and education.
We are a mature couple who love travelling. We liked that we met interesting, friendly people from all the world, we enjoyed lectures regarding places we were going to see. We felt very safe everywhere we went.

“White Nights Travel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2013

My husband and I had the most enjoyable and professional tour of St Petersburg on 26st and 27th January 2013 with White Nights Travel. We did enjoy this company very much and the casual lunches we had with our guide and driver. The Palaces were magnificent and Masha had such a knowledge of the history behind Catherine the Great and Peter the Great. The Hermitage was something we had been looking forward to since our earlier visit to St Petersburg and we were not disappointed. Many thanks again to White Nights Travel team, our excellent guide and our most courteous driver, Alexander. We will recommend White Nights to our friends and most likely return ourselves.

“Private tour guide in St. Petersburg”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2013

Hi, we travelled to St. Petersburg as a couple and through Rick Steves (well-known U.S. travel writer) we read that private tour guides are cheap, helpful and a great way to get around the city (since all signs are in Russian).

We called Alexy - a really nice middle-aged man who works as a private English teacher in Russia. He could not have been a better guide. He took us to all the attractionw we wanted to, and explained art and Russian history. He will tailor the tour to your needs. So if you just want to see a Palace or a museum, that's what you'll do. If you don't like a lot of intormatiion about art for example, he will not do this. And if you like a lot of information about the tsar family, he will tell you. It's up to you, which is Nice.

Since everything in Russia is in Russian (obviously), Alexy taught us many things - like how to take the bus on Nevsky Prospect and basic Russian words. And of course the most interesting of all: what it's like to live in Russia now compared to communism days.

I would recommend doing a tour With Alexy - he will take you around, teach you public restaurants, answer all your questions and he is a really Nice person who will take good care of you. It is not expensive either.

Alexy Alyoshetkin will tailor sightseeing to your needs, Costs about: $5/hr for city walking tours, $20/day for 2-3 days.

Call Alexy on this mobile telephone:79-21-353-3091

Or send him an e-mail: alexpetrograd@mail.ru
