The cruise ship tried to put you off booking outside trip but it was easy and far less cost. Met once we cleared immigration our group was 12 in a small Coach with a guide and driver. Fully packed days taking in all key sites, included 3 course lunch in price on one day. Guild was fab very informative and small group was great. Tour also include boat trip. I would highly recommend this trip.

We loved this tour! It visited all the main attractions in 2 days. Lunch on the first day was great! The schedule was ontime and we got to spend ample time at each attraction. I recommend this tour. Our tour guide was amazing!

Our guide Oleg from Ventura was amazing 6 out of 5. Just the right pace and just the right amount of information. St Petersburg is magnificent and the tour covered so much of it as well as Peterhoff. Russian lunch was a bonus.
Don't think twice, Just book it.
October is very cool but the que and crowds are so much smaller. No que at the Heritage was a miracle.

Pros
Guide (Oleg) was almost perfect! Very knowledgeable of Russian history, polite, very resourceful, punctual and well organized with the tour schedule.
Tour was well priced, we were very pleased with the sites we visited and van was comfortable..
Con
Only one!! We didn't have enough time to have lunch on the second day; schedule was a little tight Maybe, tour can include packed lunch ( like sandwich and drink) that can be eaten while in the boat ride? Everyone complained about almost skipping lunch the second day. I thought this was worth mentioning
Otherwise, everyone was happy with the tour, highly recommended.

This is my seat belt in the same area of the smoke that started in the back

This van had obviously been in a major collision or fire previously

After we broke down. The van was still partially in the traffic lane.
