Our guide, Maria, met us punctually at the hotel on our first day and we learned that the tour would be almost private. We learned so much from her during the three days, yet she managed to keep our interest throughout and was entirely charming. She shepherded us through the tourist hordes at the Hermitage Museum and Catherine Palace to skip the long lines, and made sure we had time for lunch at well-chosen local restaurants. We had an excellent tour.

Exceptional city that can only be appreciated with a great tour guide and a good driver. La Vacanza Travel selection of a local tour company was perfect. Pauline, our guide for the first 2 day more then perfect

Hicimos el tour de tres dias y fue muy bueno. El guia compartio muchisima informacion, muy interesante siempre en relacion a la historia y la cultura rusa. Disfrutamos de cada actividad, muy bien organizadas y siempre con algo de tiempo libre. Tambien fue muy util que un chofer nos buscara en el aeropuerto y tambien nos lleve a la estacion del tren el ultimo dia. Lo recomiendo ampliamente!!!

I have to say we received world class service from Stanislav and the La Vacanza Travel team. We were met at the train station by a kind and smiling driver who grabbed our bags, escorted us to his car and drove us quickly to our hotel. The next morning we were promptly met by Stanislav and we driven to our tour of the Peterhof. Stanilslav spoke perfect English and provided an exceptionally nuanced perspective of Russia today and great detail about the history of the city and the Romanov's. He was attentive and customized the tour to our needs, picked out interesting restaurants and thoughtfully answered our questions. St. Petersburg is an embarrassment of riches, or as Pushkin said the shame of Russia, such an amazing concentration of wealth. My personal favorite was the Yusobov palace and the tour of the room where Rasputin was poisoned and shot. My wife and I were somewhat reticent about visiting Russia, we've traveled a great deal and expected mishaps and coldness. The Russians were exceptionally kind and this trip went off without a hitch. St. Petersburg and Hermitage must not be missed and if have the chance, use La Vacanza Travel and ask for Stanislav. It was a world class experience.

This semi-private tour had everything! We saw all the sights from the canals of the city to the palaces of the czars with knowledgable Russian guides providing the history of the city from Peter the Great to modern times. One even sang arias for us. This was a mind and soul broadening experience which we'd urge others to share.
