it was a comprehensive 2-day tour of saint petersburg. we had a very good tour guide (Anastasia) for this time. she is simply amazing! the driver as well (Vladmir) he was trying his best to drop us off as close as possible to every visited spot we could not have seen so so much if we attended a different tour. on each day we were served very nice russian lunches in good restaurants my advice book this tour for your saint petersburg vacation. We were a group of friends (6 people) joining this tour. It was a very enjoyable experience with our guide Olga who was amuzing in her knowledge of St Petersburg and funny. She was helpfull at all times and coordinated the group with ease. The main point of interest for us on this tour was the Faberge museum and we saw it. Amazing! We had a comfortable van on both days of the tour. The lunches on day 1 and day 2 were included and we had different meals. Good chance to try Russian food which was tasty.

Easy pick up at the ship after we cleared customs Eugenia was waiting. She was excellent in her historical knowledge but wove in anecdotal info as well. Her English was excellent and it was a pleasure hearing how she and her family live. Our driver Serge wove through the traffic well. Covered a lot of ground but were so happy to see so much in 2 days

We felt like we had won the jackpot when taking this tour. We purposely chose a small group tour, but there were twelve passengers on the first and just six on the second which ensured us of a very personal experience with our wonderful guide Anna from Ludmila Tours. Anna was helpful, considerate and so very knowledgeable all things St Petersburg. There was no queueing at the many wonderful sights we visited freeing up time to fit so much into the two days. Without a doubt this tour exceeded all our expectations an we would urge any one considering a St Petersburg tour DO NOT plan a booking through your cruise ship without first comparing tours and prices with Excoor. Right from the very first enquiry everything for us went very smoothly. Thank you Excoor, Lyudmila and the extraordinary Anna.

My husband and I booked this tour for our visit to St. Petersburg. Once we processed through customs at the cruise port, we easily found the tour operators waiting for us. The two days were well organized, Anna was our guide, she spoke English fluently, had in-depth knowledge of every location we visited during our two day visit. The tour was exceptional, the locations amazing, St. Petersburg a highlight of the many cities we visited. We were so pleased that we chose this small group tour through Excoor. In the future we will look at small group tours vs cruise ship tours....there is no comparison. Thank you Anna for a fantastic time!

Faultless tour of St Petersburg by Ludmila Tours. Met outside immigration on time with no fuss. Our guide, Eleyna (not sure about the spelling) was amazing. Very helpful and knowledgeable with a great depth of local history. The tour was exceptional value for two days and included all the sights on our list. No waiting in line for the main attractions. A big plus. A very good small group two day tour. Can not recommend it highly enough. Our guide was excellent. Amazing tour. Everything was seamless from pick up from ship and tour. We were given plenty of time at each place. St Petersburg wonderful. Highly recommend this.

Excoor had contracted with Ludmilla Tours in St.Petersburg. The price of the tour was significantly less than the Oceania Cruise tour. We only had 12 people on our very comfortable mini bus compared to the 30+ on the big buses. Our guide was Olga who spoke perfect English and absolutely had an incredible knowledge of all things Russian and the local St Pete area. In a nutshell the tour was well worth the cost and we would highly recommend it.

Marvellous two day tour. Eugenias knowledge of the history of St. Petersburg is incredible and fasc inating,, also interesting were the insights into modern life there. So much was crammed into two days and Mikhail the driver was always ready and waiting to take us on to the next delight.Would wholeheartedly recommend this team and hope they enjoyed the english chocolates ! A nice 2 days trip that covered the main parts of St Petersburg. The guide was great and was very knowledgeable. The bus the 2nd day could be better. With 15 people it was a tight squeeze.
