It was a very pleasant visit to St. Petersburg. The Faberge Museum and Boat Cruise were nice but we liked the Hermitage Museum much better, even though it was very crowded. Anna our tour guide is very funny, pleasant and very knowledgeable. Thank you Anna

This was an excellent tour. It was very full on which you need to get round all the sights. Our guide Anna was also excellent. she was very knowledgeable and amusing making the tour very enjoyable. We compared our tour with those purchaed through the cruise, ours had far more content and was almost half the price. Anna was very careful to make allowances for the less mobile members of the tour without affecting the experience for the rest of the group. Thank you Anna for making our two days so memorable.

Be prepared to walk and see many splendid things for two whole days with lunch in St Petersburg. Our guide and driver were both very good. The price is cheaper than what is offered by the cruise ship. I highly recommend this agent.
