The guide (sorry, I can't recall her name) was excellent at showing us the major highlights of saint petersburg. We saw a lot and at the same time had significant time inside each museum. The van was clean and accommodated the group comfortably. There were a few slow walkers in the group and the guide was very patient with them trying to entertain all travelers and did her best to cut through the lines or arrange a longer stop at theplaces we showed interest in. I would definitely recommend this group tour.

Docking at St Petersburg was the highlight of our Baltic Sea cruise. We chose this group tour because of its price as other tour operators offered the same itinerary at a higher price. The group size of 15 people was perfect in comparison with big busses from the cruise ship. Our guide and driver worked together as a team and took good care of us. We visited so many places that we could never visit on our own.

It was a very full tour of the amazing city of St. Petersburg. Tour guide Kristina you were wonderful!!! Very nice and hospitable as a human and a skilled professional as a guide. She was able to organize the group perfectly.
We paid only 370 USD (185 USD each) for this complete 2-day tour while on the cruise ship they advertised half-day tours at the same price. What a rip off! Booking this tour was the best idea and it worked out perfectly for us.
Thank you La Vacanza Travel, thank you City Break!

I just returned from my baltic sea cruise and now look back to the wonderful time I had in St Petersburg. Our guide and driver both were very professional and willing to help. The hermitage and the savior on the slood were awesome. I will definitely recommend city breaks tour.

Many thanks to our tour guide Nadya and driver Uri who made the two days a great success, we cruised the Baltic and had two days in St Petersburg which was the best two days of our holiday. Booking the excursion with La Vacanza Travel was easy and the communications were excellent.
Nadya's knowledge was fantastic and she kept us informed of any point of interest we passed, we feel after the two days we parted as friends. Once again thank you Nadya and Uri.
