Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, for a wonderful tour. Our group will remember St Petersburg for a very long time and we will recommend your excellent service to everyone we know. We were so very lucky to have Dimitri as our driver and Irene as our guide. Irene is a magnificent ambassador for you and your beautiful city – we all felt that we had made a new friend and we were genuinely sad to say goodbye

Highly recommended. Operated by TJ travel. Was able to communicate well with the company's representative to ensure shore excursion was still available even when the cruise arrived a day late. Agree that all logistics visa, pick up from the cruise terminal, car, tickets were very well organized. Our guide was Eugene and driver Constantine was able to ensure our group of 14 people was able to visit the packed 2 day shore excursion itinerary. Eugene was extremely knowledgeable about the culture and history to ensure we had an excellent experience. We were also given the opportunity to try traditional Russian foods for lunch.

All logistics - visa, pick up from the cruise terminal, car, etc were very well organized. we were relatively small group of 13 people which allowed flexibility in visiting everything as planned.Our guide, Anna, was excellent, knowledgeable, fluent in English and very nice. It was very well planned 2-day tour, we saw a lot and got the real feel of this remarkable city. Anna's knowledge in art was phenomenal, and very helpful in the museums.Highly recommended.
