Oksana is an outstanding tour guide ~ the tour program is well planned and executed. Meal included is excellent with plenty of time to enjoy it. Shopping is planned at a local merchant who carries the best of the best at reasonable prices. The Hermitage is incredible, Oksana did a very fine job of showing us the highlights and covering the history in the time allotted. Try to skip the coat check and use that time for the museum. Coat check in and out eats 30 valuable minutes!!! The sites included are all very beautiful and well deserving of the in-depth history Oksana provided. Be prepared to walk your socks off!

This tour and our guide exceeded our expectations. We were provided with a fantastic snapshot of life in St Petersburg as well as visiting the amazing palaces and churches. We sampled Russian food each day and Tatiana was very knowledgeable on art and Russian history.

This tour was a very complete overview of Saint Petersburg. you got to see much more than the Faberge collection and the boat cruise. Other places were stunning especially the Hermitage and Peterhoff. I was very glad I chose to join a small group tour against going on a half-day trip organized by the cruise ship at approximately the same price... The lunches on both days were great and varied. It would be a shame to visit Russia without trying local cuisine. Tour guide Elizabeth was a great tour organizer. she always kept the group's attention and led us graciously through the crowds in the museums. We had a little time for shopping some souvenirs before returning to the cruise ship and it was cheaper than the ones sold on board. Cannot be happier with this tour!

We had a fantastic guide (Anna) who was very patient as we had some in our group who were slower walkers. The 2 days were just the right amount of time and were able to swap some visits to give a better experience.

It was the right amount of time to get a good insight into the history.

I would highly recommend this tour and definitely recommend Anna
