    The tour was beautiful, although we had to wake up early we got to see the city before everyone came out. I recommend for people who have had experience kayaking before or for those who can keep up the pace of the tour guides. If you are slow or you are not athletic I don’t recommend because they might have to cut your tour. The guides were very kind and patient. It was a fun experience.

Great boat trip through Saint Petersburg

The 90-minute boat trip with a knowledgeable guide in English led through the most important canals, past the magnificent buildings, palaces and churches, as well as over the Neva and around the Peter and Paul Fortress. It was - especially with the best weather - a wonderful experience.

I was able to taste more than I expected.

I didn't know the transfer time to the hotel until just before. There was no reply in the inquiry in Japanese, and when I emailed in poor English, I told the hotel pick-up time. I want you to include it in your voucher.

terrific spectacle!

You should have participated in this at least once! The guide, who showed us the sights on the right and left on the way to the Neva, did very well. To recommend at any time!

Friendly staff, because the appointment was missed at 5:00 p.m., easily booked for a later appointment. Problem with the English guidance: loudspeaker volume too low.
