What people are saying about Peter and Paul Cathedral

The 2 days (each from 8.30 a.m. to 6.30 p.m.) were organized in the best possible way. Our guides (Katja and Irina) were very competent, could answer every question and requests were quickly organized (trip with the metro and boat trip). A change in the visit program (due to Putin's visit to St. Petersburg at the same time) was carried out very carefully and was absolutely not disruptive. With VIP tickets there were no waiting times (we were led past the queues). The very small group size was very pleasant (on the 1st day there were four of us with our friends, on the 2nd day an English couple joined them). The guides always informed the very careful driver of the van, who was already waiting for us at the exit of the sights. I will have very fond memories of St. Petersburg. All very recommendable.

Easy and enjoyable

All went as planned- we had different guides on the two days but both were engaging, professional and informative. This arrangement really helps you make the very most of a visit which would otherwise be quite challenging- covering distances, avoiding queues and navigating the sites to best advantage. Having a 4- course restaurant lunch provided a welcome break - we heard people on other tours were given sandwiches! Great value- couldn’t recommend Marina Wilson highly enough!

A very busy two days. Our guide, Valeria from Marina Wilson Tours, was very informative and gave us a wonderful experience of St Petersburg. There were only the two of us on the tour so we had the personal attention of our guide and driver. Entry to Catherine's Palace and the Hermitage was very speedy and 'beat the crowds'. Lunches were excellent and in unusual restaurants rather than the usual mass cratering of most tours.

Very well organized tour, recommended.

To get to know the sights of St. Petersburg (we were on a cruise) with tight time frames. Waiting times have been reduced to a minimum with foresight. Our guides Katya and Irina did a good job, as did our driver Juri. Keep it up!

Olga was very informative, and proud of her country. The small group of 10 turned out to be just the 2 of us and the driver and guide. We had grate time seeing the sights, and learning bout Russia.
