Great tour! Outstanding guide!

I traveled with 6 adults and 1 child who ranged in age from 11 to 78. Three of the adults had walking problems. Our wonderful guide, Julie, made sure that we were able to see many things and provided wonderful descriptions and background for the many sites. She adapted many things to meet our needs. She was very patient and answered all of our questions. The vehicle was very comfortable and her use of a microphone enabled us all to hear her, I would highly recommend this tour.

Excellent guide and professional driver in a very nice vehicle

I arrived in St. Petersburg on a cruise ship and selected this tour rather than going with a cruise ship excursion with a bus full of people. More specifically I wanted something that would better fir my partners limited mobility and allow him to tailor the amount of walking and sightseeing. Our guide was an absolute wealth of knowledge and always made us feel in control of the tour while accommodating my partners limitations. Her English skills were on par with any tour guide in the US. We had a very nice luxury Mercedes van which felt as if it had just come off the car lot. Our driver was very professional and made every effort to drop us off as close to the different venues as was possible and was ready and waiting at the exits. I even made multiple comments that it felt as though he had spots right in front reserved for him. I would recommend this tour to anyone looking for something more private and personalized and can say it was well worth the cost. 5 star service & tour.

Marina our guide was extremely knowledgeable and was able to answer all the questions and provide new insights. She is excellent. Our driver was also very good in the busy St Petersburg traffic. This is a tour I highly recommend especially in cold weather.
