We flew to St. Petersburg for a day during a week-long trip to Moscow for the World Cup. Our tour guide, Dasha, was very competent and knew her history. She also spoke perfect English, which was very helpful. We did the all day tour which included Church of the Savior on Spilled Blood, lunch and ended at the Hermitage Museum. There was a lot of walking, but we were driven to each location by minivan. The Hermitage Museum is huge, like the Louvre, so there is a lot to see in just a few hours. My only complaint was that we did not get dropped off at our pick up location (across from the airport), but instead had to take a taxi back to the airport. With the World Cup traffic (there was a game in St. Petersburg that day) and a sudden downpour, we barely made it back to the airport in time for our return flight to Moscow. Other than that small inconvenience, the tour was very informative and covered all the sites one would want to see while visiting St. Petersburg.

We booked this amazing excursion on La Vacanza Travel in Saint Petersburg on the 26th of December 2017. It was absolutely fantastic! Our guide Julia picked us up at our hotel in a comfortable minivan on time. She made it possible for us to see almost all the main attractions in St Petersburg in the short time available to us. We had lunch at the most charming little restaurant with lovely food typical of the region. Julia was a fountain of knowledge and enjoyed the day immensely. She spoke English perfect. I would 100 recommend this trip.

This was perfect. My husband literally had one day to tour and we wanted to see as much as we could. Our guide was perfect-she was so friendly and we did see everything. We were together all day and into the evening. I would definitely recommend this if you need to do St. Petersburg in a day!
