We were in the Norwegian CL Baltic/Scandinavian Cruise. The shore excursion price for St. Petersburg was so expensive through NCL. We had to find a tour that would offset the price of the cruise. The price for this group tour was very reasonable and also made us pay individually through their website. This is one aspect I really liked. If you only have a cruise stop in St.Petersburg I would highly suggest this tour company to handle your shore excursion.You get what you pay for. Definitely wanna come back.

We went on Baltic Sea Cruise in June of this year and nothing can top the excellent and fantastic tour we had in St. Petersburg, Russia, with Jane, our tour guide and Oleg, the driver, for 2 days. They looked after us and showed us that they cared. My husband, James, got pick-pocketed and Jane, the tour guide, was there for us, even offered to share his internet so, we could make the proper calls to our banks and credit card providers to cancel all cards that he had lost. I felt her heart-felt concern, that I practically "fell in love" with this lady. I recommend this tour company anytime, anywhere. And if you ever go to St. Petersburg, ask for Jane, the guide, to take care of you, and they will, I can rest-assure you. Have fun! We saw many of the great sites of St Petersburg with guide’s excellent insights and great attention to our interests. We had a couple really good lunches, comfortable transportation, good drivers, and really had an excellent experience. I would highly recommend to anyone, this tour exceeded our expectations.

Not only did we see architectural and cultural icons from times past and some from times present, our guide Angelina was gracious and sophisticated understanding the nuances of differing visitors backgrounds and interests. Very knowledgeable she was a delight to meet. Highly recommended. Excellent knowledgeable and friendly local tour guide. Big money saver. Itineraries were almost the same as the ships excursions but the Price was much less. Excellent service + competitive price= amazing emotions.

I traveled to the Baltic Sea with my mother, her sister and my 2 sisters on a cruise ship to celebrate my mother's 70th birthday. We spent 2 weeks touring and doing excursions, 2 of the days were spent in St. Petersburg Russia. We did some ship sponsored excursions and some private excursions booked with Viator. By far our favorite days were spent with Ludmila Tours. It was nice to be able to leave our sweaters and purchases in our own van as we toured the next place. Both days that we spent with Jane our fabulous tour guide were fantastic. She was very knowledgeable, flexible with our schedule, spoke excellent English not to mention that she is super sweet. Because it was my mom's birthday we had Ludmila set up some special events, a dinner at a local restaurant that was off the beat and path. Ludmila had a special cake from a fabulous local bakery waiting at the restaurant. They even had a bouquet of mom’s favorite flowers waiting there for her. They went above and beyond to make our trip special and we all appreciated it so much. Ludmila Tours made our trip to St. Petersburg outstanding!

Our family of four including our 20 and 23 year old daughters thoroughly enjoyed our tour in St. Petersburg in September. The knowledge our tour guide Helena (or maybe Elena) had of history and art were very appreciated by all of us and she handled all the different groups in our group of 12-14. We also used private drivers for 3 hours one night and went out to a restaurant and drove around to see the sites and a 6 hour the other night for shopping and eating an excellent Georgian dinner. 3 hours was too short but 6 hours was too long (after a full day of touring) - I think this tour company will be flexible for any period of time longer than 3 hours. I had thought about scheduling a private tour for the four of us for the three days but I think the larger group made it even better!

We thoroughly enjoyed our two day tour of St. Petersburg with an extremely knowledgeable tour guide. We took in all the attractions a first time visitor to the city would enjoy including a ride on the Subway. Catherine's Palace and the Amber Room is not to be missed. Happy traveling with Excoor and its inexpensive but competent service. Absolutely wonderful ! Terrific job, my fiance and I enjoyed every city, every meal, and the education about the areas were second to none.

We had the best time in St Petersburg. The smaller tour groups (sub 15) compared to the large cruise ship tours (40+) made all the difference. A highlight was in St Petersburg with Masha, she was so knowledgeable, friendly and fun! It was an action packed two days (exhausting) but so memorable. Can't wait to come back again

It was fantastic! Our Tour Guide Michael was wonderful. Extremely knowledgeable with fluent English and a great sense of humor. From the the Fountain Park in Peterhof, the Church of Spilt blood, the Hermitage Museum, Catherines Palace to the canal tour and subway ride (and more!) ... The 3 days were so enjoyable. It was absolutely perfect.
