We had Polina as our tour guide. She is extremely experienced in this. She got us around in front of all the big groups - mainly chinese tourists and let us see everything at a good speed but not in a rushed manner. The only bad thing was the lunch. It was very poor to say the least. Food bad and their didn't seem to be anyone around who spoke any english to explain what we were getting etc. I would rather have forgone this and got to see a metro station which was the only thing that I felt that I had missed out on in St Petersburg. Its a great place and it would be impossible to see all we saw in two days if you weren't on a tour like this. Obviously it is great as the visa is not required which makes it a no brainer to do this really.

Wonderful time in St Petersburg with our fabulous guide. We were so lucky to have a small group of 5 and such a personal tour. Paulina was extremely knowledgeable and gave us such a lot of interesting information about her city. Visited the main attractions of museums,churches palaces and gardens

Our tour of St. Petersburg was fantastic and we cannot speak highly enough of our guide Pauline. She is extremely knowledgeable, friendly and was absolutely determined to give us a tour that we hoped for. I can't believe how much we saw and experienced in our two days there. The canal cruise was a wonderful part of the tour as was everything we saw. Our drivers were also excellent and friendly,. The included lunch on the tour was very good and in a nice restaurant. It was far better than what was offered by the ship. One thing, however, be prepared to walk... alot! There is so much to see on this particular tour. We highly recommend the tour and Viatour to anyone considering a trip there... and Pauline, if you are reading this, Clare, Frank and I thank you for a wonderful experience!

We were in St. Petersburg for 2 days on Aug 15 and 16 and visited the church of spilled blood,hermitage museum, Peterhof palace and gardens,Catherine's palace, and the fortress of Peter and Paul, and enjoyed a boat tour through the canals. The tour company was Aventura Travel and our guide was Paulina. I have been with guides all over the world and was totally impressed with Paulina. She was professional and personable and her knowledge of the history of the locations we visited was exceptional. She was able to guide us through the crowds skillfully without ever making us feel rushed.
We were provided with a portable unit with earpieces that allowed us to to explore while listening to the commentary.An exceptional tour which I highly recommend.

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