We are glad we picked SPB tours for our Baltic vacation. They are professional and well organized. All our concerns and questions were answered before the travel date. They brought us back to the ship on time at every port. All the tour guides are very knowledgeable and friendly and the drivers are courteous and helpful. The tours covered all major attractions. We learned a great amount of history. St. Petersburg is a beautiful city, I wish they had bus instead of a van for better viewing. On the whole our experience was fantastic, and we would highly recommend SPB tour service. The headphones were really helpful in ST. Petersburg. Wished they had these at other ports as well.

We had the most wonderful 2-day tour of St Petersburg, perhaps one of the world's greatest treasures. From the moment we communicated with "Vika," the owner and entrepeneur, until our sad farewell, we loved the SPB experience. We booked a 4-city package which reduced the price greatly. The most amazing, heartfelt tour was St Petersburg. Our tour guide, Luba, was intelligent and mesmorizing. Luba opened a whole new world to us, one of the charm of St Petersburg. She spoke of history, art, customs, always with a smile and many anecdotes. She answered every question with style and respect and certainly knew more than any other tour guide we had beforehand. On the first day our driver, Dimitri, drove us to the Peterhof Palace. This was an enchanting place of fountains and gardens that aired a fairytale quality of joy. The canal cruise of St Petersburg was reminiscent of Venice. We ate 2 traditional lunches and a shot of vodka to toast our visit.."vashe zdorovie!" One must see the sparkling "Amber Room" in Catherine's Palace. The opulent Hermitage dazzled us thoroughly as well. We thank you SPB for the most memorable tours ever.

Disembarking our cruise ship we were met by guide Luba and driver Alexei and we began the most wonderful two-day visit to St. Petersburg! Luba's perfect English and knowledge of everything we saw and visited was astounding. Alexei's driving was without compare. This team made us want more of beautiful St Petersburg!!!!

My husband and I recently did a two day tour of St. Petersburg through SPB tours. Our guide, Tatiana, was professional, charming, well-informed and conscientious. Her knowledge of her city was amazing. Our driver, Sergey, was attentive to the road and very polite. Tatiana's English was superb and her explanations of the history of the city were informative. All of us learned to count to 16 in Russian, as she did a head count each time we returned to the bus. We would recommend SPB tours to anyone interested in a visit to St. Petersburg.

My husband and I took a 12 day Baltic cruise. I did a lot of research and picked SPB because of the great reviews. Well, they were correct. We had tours in Berlin, Stockholm, Helsinki, St. Petersburg, Tallinn and Copenhagen. Every one of the guides was professional, knowledgeable and entertaining. We have been on many tours before (including the ones given by the cruise lines) and these were by far the best. Each of the guides had superior knowledge of the history of their country. When asked a question, they nearly always had the answer. If not, they quickly got it and relayed later in the tour. The size of the groups varied a little from country to country, but was the largest was 23 and most were smaller (16 in St. Petersburg). All of the guides were great, but Kristopher in Stockholm was especially entertaining. We also appreciated that the owner came out and met us on the second day in St. Petersburg. Overall, a great experience and highly recommended.
