On our Baltic Cruise (with Marina, Oceania Cruises) we stayed 3 days in St. Petersburg. For all 3 days we booked a tour with SPb and we would do this again! Immigration process was very easy and after passing the hallway we were friendly welcomed by the SPb-staff. Svetlana our Tour Guide not only impressed us with her profound knowledge in history and arts but also with her excellent and accent free English. The group size of 12-14 people is ideal and the provided Audio system allows understanding every word the Tour Guide says.

We recently cruised the Baltic sea, and our time in St Petersburg was the highlight. We booked the treasures tour, and we were promptly met as soon as we docked by the SPB guides. We ended up being the only ones on our tour, so basically got a private tour! Our tour guide was named Maria, and she was amazing! A wealth of knowledge. Such a wonderful two days!

We booked the complete Baltic Package. We were a little concerned about going outside the ship for tours but SPB was very punctual and we never had a worry about being late or missing the ship. They were fabulous. We had Anja in Berlin. She was extremely knowledgable about the area and we enjoyed her very much. In Tallin we had Madli. She was impressive and my favorite of all the tours. She was so passionate about her country and told such touching personal stories, that she moved me to tears. Although everyone was great - she was my favorite. We spent 2 days in St Petersburg with Maria. She knew everything! A walking encyclopedia of all things St Petersburg. Just Great! We had Sari in Finland-the tours were shorter she gave us a great day. Eva was our guide in Stockholm. Seems that the stop in Stockholm is so short and there are so many ships in port at the same time in made the stops very crowded and difficult to hear the guide. It would have been nice to have the earbuds and transmitters that we had in St Petersburg. I think it would have enhanced the tour but we saw it all in the short time. The congestion is not the fault of the the tour guide - its just a very crowded area. We were very please with SPB and will recommend them to our friends and if we have an opportunity to book with them again we will.

My husband and I had our first tour to the Baltic Sea and were very pleased with SPB's Baltic Pearls Package. The tour guides were very professional and we had an excellent tour to all five countries. Victoria greeted us at the end of our two day tour in St Petersburg which was a nice surprise. I highly recommend SPB as a company to use in the Baltic.

We have just returned from a cruise on Celebrity Eclipse and engaged SPB tours for our party of 6/7. We wanted a 2 day private tour because we wanted to have the flexibility, as my mum is 80 year old. What a fantastic tour! Our guide was superb and really tried to be as helpful and flexible as possible. Our driver really tried to ensure that he got as close as possible, so my mum didn't have to walk more than she had to. I would highly recommend.
