A full 2 day tour picked up from our cruise ship. Gives a great taste of all the major attractions. Not cheap but fully worth the cost. Cannot recommend highly enough. Tour was in July 2019.

We just returned from a Baltic cruise, and picking Alla Tours was wonderful. We had Marina as our guide for 2 days, and she was excellent, professional and you could hear the pride in her voice as she toured us around her home town. These 2 days of touring were intense, long and so full of fabulous information. I would highly recommend Alla Tours.

Wonderfully organised 2 day Grand Tour, guide was so knowledgeable, small group of 13 visiting Heritage, Peerhof Gardens, subway and canal experience, St Catherines Palace, packed lunch 1st day provided to eat on the move traveliing between sites and lovely lunch at a hotel day two, entry and photo permissions included to all venues visited.. early starts but so worth it, some venues we were in before they opened to public thus avoiding crowds

Because our ship did not offer tours with an English speaking guide we booked with Alla tours; based on the reviews. Our guide Svetlana and driver Ilya made the 2-day grand tour an unforgettable experience. She was an expert guide; friendly and very knowledgeable. Ilya, the driver took us safely and comfortably through the St. Peterburg traffic. Have recommended Alla tour to friends that are planning a visit.

Alex was our guide for the two day grand tour of St Petersburg the beginning of October 2019. He was an amazing guide, extremely knowledgeable on a wide variety of topics.We were very happy with the organization of Alla Tours. Group maximum is 16, the capacity of the bus. Before the trip my emailed questions were answered promptly. My only disappointment was that I hadn't booked Alla Tours for the other Baltic cities we visited.

Peterhof fountains in the rain



A complex of palaces, gardens, fountains and waterfalls is one of Russia's most famous tourist attractions, I had wished I lived their era ..



Located in the Tsar's village, around an hour and half away from St. Petersburg, the palace was originally presented by Peter the Great to his second wife, Catherine I, in early 18th century A Chamber maid who made her way up becoming the Queen.



The church was built in the fashion of the 16th century Moscow region churches which was considered for a long time out of style when compared to the other European churches of the time
