We visited St. Petersburg in august 2012 and heard about this company from a friend. It was so easy to get in touch with Alexei. They came and took us from the port and drove us all around the city.Our tour guide,Tatiana was such a knowledgeable person,explaining every building that we saw, she also spoke english with good accent and we didn't have to queue anywhere. The driver was competent and careful ( he didn't know any english however). I think that in the 2 days we had available for this city with this company we made the most of it! We have also went to a ballet show with the same company( Alexei drove us there and back to the ship). It was amazing! Even though we had a schedule, it got mixed up; but we saw everything that we were supposed to see so no complaints! They are open to everything you would like. Thank you so much!

Dear OLARESCU family!

Thank you for review and your kind words. It is very unusual to have guests from Romania here so this was another reason why we took extra effort to prepare for your visit. And it was a true pleasure for us to serve you.

You are always welcome back!

At your service,

MaxiBaltTours team

We visited St Petersburg in August 2012 and had Alexei recommended by another client of our agent. This recommendation was completely accurate. Alexei dealt will our wishes for a bespoke tour quickly and supplied as much information as we needed over the months before our visit, often replying to e mails immediately. Our tourguide Maria was pleasant,knowledgeable and accommodating, the driver was competent, careful and a pleasure to ride with. One evening we visited the ballet at a proper theater, Alexei took us himself and even saw us to our seats inside the theater.
I would recommend a private tour to anyone visiting St Petersburg, we often saw long lines of people on the various ships tours queuening outside attractions, we didn't queue anywhere but just went straight in..........................it was well worth the cost.

So easy - google maxibalttours and get in touch with Alexei. He will reply within minutes. - St.Petersburg was definitely the highlight of our Celebrity Baltic Cruise in July 2012. There are so many cathedrals, churches, palaces, museums, etc. to be seen and/or visited that within 2 days one can only work off a handful. Alexei offered us a tour that included everything we wanted to see, plus a hydrofoil trip to Peterhof, a canal tour by boat, visit to a market, even a trip by the Metro (underground), and, of course, a Russian lunch on both days. Our guide was the very knowledgable and extremely pleasant, attractive Pauline - thanks to both of you for affording us this wonderful experience.

Alexei and his crew provided a wonderful St. Petersburg experience for my recent family vacation. Before arriving, he patiently answered all our questions and provided the relevant information that we needed for the trip. Our two day tour in the city was also a wonderful experience! Maria was a knowledgeable tour guide who gave us a lot of good information about the city and the various sights. Our transportation around the city was good, and we never had to wait. It was a great time, and we learned a lot about the culture and sights. Definitely nothing like a large bus tour group. Maxi Balt Tours is an outstanding company and I would recommend this to anyone.

We organised a Baltic cruise (Celebrity Eclipse) with another couple who have not been before. We went several years ago and only had one day in St Petersburg so we knew there was a lot to pack in this time, even though were there for two days. We also knew that the trips organised by the cruise lines are overpriced and impersonal so decided to look at 'going alone'. If you look on the Internet it seems that you have to go through all sorts of visa hassle to go independently and it is easy to be put off. Don't be.
We were lucky enough to run into someone acting as a tour guide on a trip to Amstrdam who turned out to be living in St Petersburg. So we asked him to recommend someone. He put us in touch with Alexei from MaxiBalt and everything went smoothly from there. We had some idea about what we wanted to see and they had suggestions as well, so by an exchange of emails we came up with an itinerary. They emailed us a ticket which we printed out and presented at the immigration desk, so there was no problem with visas.

Alexei met us and took us to an evening show. The next day we had a minibus with driver and the fantastic Maria as our guide for the four of us. We got to go at our pace and do what we wanted to do, managing to miss the worst crowds in the process. I thoroughly recommend MaxiBalt as the bes way to see this fantastic city.
