We were booked with TJ Tours to go on a private 2 day shore excursion in July for 1 day Moscow, 1 day St Petesburg and due to coronvirus we unfortunately had to cancel. I would like to say to everyone know that the company is very good with their communication and they refuned the full amount of what we paid which is better than most. Thankyou TJ Tours for your support during this time.

Used Shore Excursions 5 years ago (2015) while on a Celebrity Cruise to the Baltic. Our cruise rep suggested Shore Excursions as an alternate to what Celebrity would offer. The tour was excellent, we had a great guide and our group never exceeded 10 people. I would definitely recommend this as much harder to see things in a timely manner when on big bus loads of people.

We did the two day tour, booking on our Royal Caribbean ship. Tour takes care of visa requirements. Busy schedule, but we saw all the major attractions. Two guides, who were very knowlegable and able to answer any questions. Included lunches. Good buses. Wear good shoes, there is lots of walking. Able to get into attractions without excessive wait, as you may have if visiting independantly. Do the tour, you won't be dissapointed!

We had a fantastic visit to St. Petersburg. Our guide was friendly, knowledgeable and always eager to answer questions. Our driver always parked close to our destinations as well as stopping in appropriate photo opportunity places. We were thrilled with our tour.
