The organization of the tour was on top level. The visas, meeting in the port, transprortation by a clean minibus, an excellent guide, tickets and very well planned itinerary. Also great communication before the trip so that we could ask all the questions we had. It was a great 2-day tour full of sightseeing and nice walks. I recommend wearing comfortable walking shoes to anyone. Our guide Victoria was very fluent in English and had an extraordinary knowledge of Russian history and culture. The driver Alex was also great and always on time. We had a chance to visit all the wonderful palaces of St Petersburg as per program and had lunches in local restaurants. We were given headsets to hear the guide good on both days as we were a group of 16. The boat trip in the evening was a great opportunity to see the city from different engle and enjoy the sunset. We didn't have any special expectations for this trip but St Petersburg happened to be an astonishing city and the tour was so well planned and conducted by our guide that we will remember this tour for a long time and recommend it to all our friends.

We were lucky to visit St Petersburg in October when the museums were not so crowded already but the weather was still good. Our guide Julia was very nice and helpful throughout the tour, trying to meet our needs and wishes. Our group was only 6 persons so we were able to have the full attention of the guide and get answers on all our questions which were many. The itinerary was very complex and even thanks to being in a small group we managed to squeeze a visit to Nikolsky Cathedral which was not included in the program. St Petersburg is a wonderful city and we covered much ground walking and by bus. The driver was also very polite and helpful; the minibus was modern and clean. We had water, juice and a chocolate bar complimentary on the tour every day. I can't imagine this 2-day tour to be better than what it was. Don't hesitate to choose this tour if you want to have great time in St Petersburg

City Break literally saved our cruise trip on Norwegian Breakaway. Due to the weather conditions our arrival to St Petersburg was delayed 1 day at the last moment on the eve of the tour day. We were sure that our shore excursion in St Petersburg will be canceled or at least only held partly. Against all expectations and despite of the cruise being late 1 day and few hours, we have received a full 2-day tour completely corresponding the description. As we found out later, some other companies had to cancel one day from the 2-day tours or change the itinerary and skip visiting some museums while we followed the same program. Before the arrival we contacted the tour operator several times to understand the situation regarding the tour and always received fast answers via phone call or WhatsApp. Our guide explained us later that the company lost all the tickets on the day when we hadn't arrived and they walked this extra mile to buy the tickets for the second time and arrange the tour on the next day (which wasn't planned). Big thanks to our guide and driver for the amazing 2 days as well. We have seen all the highlights of the city, visited the spectacular museums and had delicious lunches. The tour was very well planned so that we never had to wait long to enter any attraction. I highly recommend this company for what they did for us in this complecated situation with the cruise. With big greetings from the States, Chris

Thanks City Break team for a great experience during this cruise. We were lucky to be in a small group only 6 travelers on both days. Our guide was very informative and caring, as i dur to the small size group we were able to get to the sights faster and see much more. The first day of the tour was very exciting, we had a panoramic tour and visited the spectacular gardens of Peterhof and Catheine's Palace. Our tickets were skip-the-line so we didn't have to wait at all. On the second day morning we were suggested to spend some free time as we wanted offering walking, shopping or seeing St Petersburg stadium or a local market. It was great that the tour was flexible and we could see something that was not included. Our driver was amazing, we aplauded him for the maneuvers he performed in the center of the city where the streets are narrow. The visit to the Faberge museum was the highlight of the program and it was nice to take the boat ride in the evening time on the first day too. Lunches on both days were very good 3 meals and a desert. Totally loved that there was water and juice in the bus so that we didn't have to search where we can buy it during the tour. Having seen so much of the wonderful museums of St Petersburg I am saying that I will definitely come back and use this tour operator for another trip.

St. Petersburg has been on my bucket list for years. finally made it. wonderful tour through City Break Tours with Anna as guide and Icor the driver. Super lunches at very nice restaurants on both days crowds of visitors palaces of gold and inlay floors - such excesses and opulence. no wonder there was a revolution.
