La Vacanza Travel really knows what they are doing. They know how to maneuver around crowds. Our tour guide Svetlana was superb in her knowledge about St. Petersburg and was very engaging.

I talked to several people who took the cruise arranged tours and no doubt ours was much better and less expensive.

This was a busy but very interesting and thorough 2-day tour. We found the Mercedes Benz mini-bus and small group to be an advantage in many ways and the tour leader (Daria) was excellent and very helpful and her knowledge of St Petersburg and the attractions was first-rate. I would like to also say that she showed a very practical approach which minimised a lot of the frustrations of travel that you can have with large crowds. She ensured our safety and comfort throughout the tour. Our driver (Constantine) was also excellent and always on time. He was able to park the van at the most convenient places and looked after our belongings whilst we were sightseeing which was very helpful. We are a group of 4 and give this tour full marks. We thought at first that it was expensive but it was worth every cent and if we ever returned we would use TJ Travel again. The administration and organisation of booking tours was simple with every question answered promptly beforehand and we felt confident throughout. Thank-you from the Harveys and Wallaces.

Olga did an amazing job leading us around all the top spots in St Petersburg, including the Winter Palace, Peterhof Gardens, Catherine's Palace, the Church of Spilt Blood, and more. Her knowledge was seemingly endless as she shared amazing history as well as personal anecdotes. The small group was really good, as we had personal attention throughout the trip.

Because you're visiting so many places in such a short time period, the only drawback is that you wish you could have more time in each - Peterhof Gardens could easily be a full day in itself, for example. But if you're visiting for the first time and really want to get a taste of everything the city has to offer, this is a great tour.

Please note there is a lot of walking, and because of the small group size there is not a bathroom on the bus, as its a small van size. That wasn't a problem for us, but for many of the older folks on the tour we needed more frequent stops for bathroom breaks (which Olga was happy to accommodate).

A wonderful tour that I'd recommend to anyone. TJ Travel is a good, well-trusted company to use.

We had a wonderful 2 day tour with Ivan, a very competent driver and Victoria , a very knowledgeable guide, who showed us the highlights of many places.

Our guide, Idahn (sp?) , was excellent— knowledgeable about the sights and open to questions about everyday life in Russia. The tour was very well-organized and kept to itinerary, notwithstanding an unforeseeable delay in the disembarking procedure. It included every sight on our list, and although it was an ambitious itinerary, we were satisfied with the attention given to each stop. Obviously, the visit to the Hermitage, quite crowded with other tourists, was limited to high points.
