“Excellent way to explore St Petersburg in limited time”
Reviewed September 9, 2013

Boat Cruise through Neva river and connecting canals is an amazing experience. Reasonably priced tours are available. Tour lasts 60-75 minutes. Cruise takes you around important sites & monuments. English commentary tours are around 10 AM. This a best way to enjoy beauty of St Petersburg if you are short on time. High speed boats tours are also available for travel to Peterhof. Do enjoy the cruise & beauty of St Petersburg.

“2 days in St. Petersburg with White Nights Travel”
Reviewed August 11, 2013

We were very impressed with all aspects of our tour guide and driver organizing a well thought out itinerary for just 2 days in St. Petersburg. We navigated through the crowded streets and through the tourist crowds to see specific pieces of art at the Hermitage. Our guide explained so much about the history of Peter the Great and Catherine - she pointed out details about the architecture, the statues, the fountains and the churches. She and the driver even figured out the best place to buy a polarizing filter. So although we had a short tour, we learned so much about life in St. Petersburg!

Reviewed August 11, 2013

If you are traveling to St Petersburg by cruise ship book a private tour with White Nights Travel .I travelled to St Petersburg by P & O cruise ship " Arcadia ", with my mum and dad. All details and booking of the tour was done by email with Irina ,who answered all questions very quickly and was excellent to deal with.
Got off Arcadia with no problems and went through immigration in a flash to meet our Tour guide at 10.00 am.
Met Dasha our tour guide in main hall and was taken to our mini van were we was met by Alexander our driver.
Day 1
Went to Catherine Palace ,stop at bakers shop for tea and cake ( this was recommended by Dasha ) Canal Trip and photo stops.

Day 2
Photo stops and a trip to the Hermitage .

We have been on lots of cruises and this was the best tour we have ever had , from the very professional details from the first email from Irina , nothing was to much a problem .

Dasha ( Tour Guide )
simply the best guide we have ever had !!, very knowledgeable guide nothing was any problem . Letting us take photos and also making extra photo stops for us to see more of St Petersburg and also the very good stop for tea and cakes !.We made a very good friend , If you book a tour ask for Dasha .

Alexander ( Driver )
Very safe driver getting us through the St Petersburg traffic , a true gentleman .

I recommend white nights travel , I would have no problems in booking with them again when we return to St Petersburg .

“Wonderful St. Petersburg experience with White Nights Travel”
Reviewed August 11, 2013

We were on a Costa Cruise 30 june-7 july Copenhagen-Wärnemunde and we chose to hire a private guide instead of Costas overpriced tour. It was the best choice we could have made. From the moment we have been pick-ed up at the terminal to when we said farwel to our wonderful guide, we had a delightful experience.
The trip included transport in a van for our family of four, and the tour was tailored to our needs.
We knew that St. Petersburg had a lot to often, so we wanted to see Hermitage, Church of our savior on spilled blood and have a tour on Neva. We got all that and much more. Our wonderful guide Irina, knew exactly what place were worth to see, so we made short stops with enough time for pictures (thanks to the driver as well) Hermitage visit was great (we bought tickets online in advance so we didn't have to wait in line). Irina, our guide, who has a degree in history and arts, really caught our interest. We saw the most interesting things in Hermitage and her stories captured us, she could tell a story for almost every painting and sculpture We learned a lot about russian history and royalty, and our two daughters (11 and 15) enjoyed the museum very much. A short stop in a old and famous little "pie restaurant" (yummy) and we continued our tour. The trip on Neva was great, more stories from Irina.
Really a great guide and a wonderful tour, strongly recommended.
We will definitively return to St.Petersburg for a longer stay.
