Julia, our tour guide, did a great job. She has an excellent knowledge of history and art and a friendly and pleasant personality. We visited all the things on our list and more. She brought us to nice restaurants and great shops to buy vodka and souvenirs. Compliment also to our driver, Andre, who drove us safely around and patiently waited for us. The price for two days with a private guide and chauffeur for six people was very reasonable. Don’t let yourself be fooled by cruise companies and travel companies who want to make you believe that the only way to see St. Petersburg without the hassle of arranging a visa is buying their very expensive shore excursions. You can participate in visa free shore excursions with local tour operators also. Thank you Daria, Polina, Julia and Andre. Thank you City Break Tours

Nuestro crucero estuvo dos días en San Petersburgo y al ir con dos niños se complicaba tramitar las visas. Entre las alternativas de agencias turísticas destacaba City Break San Petersburgo por su oferta, precio y rapidez para responder preguntas y cotizaciones. Elegimos una guía en español y tuvimos la suerte de que nos asignaran a Anna, quien nos trató estupendamente además de tener muy amplios conocimientos de historia, geografía, política y literatura. Anna llegó muy puntual ambos días. Igor fue nuestro conductor y el vehículo era muy cómodo; nos regalaron agua, y tenía un asiento de niño pequeño instalado (nuestro grupo era de 4 personas y no nos cobraron al menor). El beneficio de "skip the line" es buenísimo y nos ahorró mucho tiempo. Anna tuvo mucha sensibilidad para llevarnos a donde queríamos y ajustar el itinerario para pasar más tiempo en donde queríamos; en realidad íbamos a nuestro ritmo y eso hizo toda la experiencia muy placentera. Como detalle, nos interesó escuchar una Liturgia en un templo ruso, y sin ningún problema lo ajustó en el itinerario. También nos ayudó a hacer algunas compras menores en tiendas donde sólo aceptaban rublos, e incluso cambió algunos Euros. En resumen, fue la mejor decisión para poder vivir al máximo nuestra estadía en tan hermosa ciudad.
