Our tour guide Oksana is very knowledgeable. Our group is just small, there is 18 of us so were able to
visit all the highlights of the tour. The museums, the boat tour, Metro Subway tour and the lunch were
delicious. Ii is highly recommended.

This was a wonderful two day tour, our guide Elena was very good. We saw everything as advertised except for the shopping on Nevsky Prospekt. Instead we were taken to an expensive souvenir shop which was very disappointing. That aside though this is a great tour especially as you do not need to get a visa for it.

Definitely exceeded our expectations. Our guide spoke better English than we did and was very knowledgeable on her history of the city and her country. Van was in excellent condition and the driver was safe. Van had free Wi-Fi that was super fast.
