Done a 2 day tour with SPB encompassing all the main sites, worked out at 8hrs on first day and 6hrs second day. Cost was £133 each including all tips which considering the price of a visa if you do it yourself is pretty good and definitely cheaper than P&O.
There were 8 of us on a 16 seater modern mini bus which was great from a comfort point of view, driver was friendly and good at transporting us around.
Lisa, our guide is absolutely fantastic,she has a brilliant sense of humour and is very knowledgeable, the tour is flexible allowing us to do the metro tour when we wanted and also take in the main railway station and Zenit St Petersburg football ground.
Our tour was titled a comfort tour, i am 55 and my wife 48 and are both reasonably fit, we were both tired at the end of the first day so pleased we did not do the more involved tour , it would have been too much.
Lunch is grab it as you go, some brought theirs with them and you take as little or as much time as you want, we choose to stop for a short while as to make more use of our time.
You do stop at shops(1 each day) but only if you agree and only for as long as you wish.
Would pay in dollars cash as it gets a bit complicated using a credit card.
Thoroughly recommend.

Dear Bob13158,

So nice to hear that you had a wonderful time with our guide Lisa. It sounds like the itinerary was perfectly suited to you and your wife and that there was enough to experience all the must-see sites of our great city.

Best,
Vika

We really enjoyed our one-day tour in Berlin and 2-day deluxe tour in St Petersburg with SPB. Tour guide Jim in Berlin and tour guide Elena in st Petersburg were both very informative and helpful. Vika greeted us at the port of St Petersburg and her husband greeted us in Berlin. Their personable touches were very unique! Elena even took us for a metro ride to experience the famously beautiful subway stations in St Petersburg. We highly recommend SPB.

Our 2 day tour with SPB was great, we got to see so many fantastic sites. The guide was very informative and gave a good insight into Russian history. Lunch was the same on both days which is the only thing that we could complain about and the fact that there was no alternative meal if you could not eat what was served. Would highly recommend this tour, the best thing is that you are part of a small group so not having to wait around for large numbers to return to the coach delaying your departure to the next stop.

We spent a lot of time researching the best suited tour for our stop in St. Petersburg during our Princess cruise in June. Following all the great reviews on both tripadvisor and cruise critic, we chose the 2 day deluxe tour. We were beyond pleased by the whole experience with SPB tours from the initial email planning, to the ease of customs, and our Marvelous guide Tatiana. We all felt that we had the perfect balance of sights and information (SO much information and history in just 2 days)! Perfect group size, comfortable buses, very welcoming, safe and enjoyable experience.

We heard about SPB Tours via cruise critic and booked before we left New Zealand, despite the miss information that you couldn't book independent tours in St Petersburg unless you had a Visa in Passport! Communication from SPB Tours was clear and efficient. They made it clear that the Ticket and Visa information sent to us was all we needed to leave the ship and progress through Immigration to meet up with our guide. They reassured us that we would be back to the ship on day two on time. We had a small group of 11 and our guide was fantastic. A full on active two days fitting in every aspect of St Petersburg we wanted to see. Great stops for lunch and all included in the very reasonable price. Just two days is hardly enough time to do the city justice but if on a cruise and you only have two days then make the most of it with this superb tour from SPB. I highly recommend this company.
