This was an amazingly organized tour. Skip the line tickets and skip the traffic jams driving. Our guide Eugenia was extremely informed about the history of Petersburg, as well as being thoughtful and considerate of the variety of the people on the tour. I would definitely recommend this tour. The tour greatly exceeded my expectations. The Church of Spilled Blood and Palaces ARE MUST-SEES if you are visiting Saint-Petersburg! Eugenia was very intelligent and knew a lot about the art and museums. Crammed a lot into one day which was great for us. Because of the FIFA World Cup the traffic was awful - i.e. We had no opportunity for lunch or even a quick snack stop. Could be a great tour with just a few little but important improvements.

My sister and I loved this tour so much. Our tour guide Olesya was awesome and very informative. It was all that we expected. It was a one day tour so we were ready to walk a lot. We never had to wait to enter any of the sites, we did not have to purchase a Visa and never felt rushed. Highly recommended as a one day experience in St.P! Our guide sorry I forgot his name was one of the kindest persons I ever met. He took good care of us by frequently reminding us to be careful of our belongings. And he was so kind to pay for all of our bathroom use because none of us have Russian money to pay for the bathroom use. He is such an amazing tour guide. Out driver Vladimir was very careful and we felt secure. Hermitage visit was extensive and it was really worth visiting. Spilled Blood Church is unforgettable! All in all a fantastic day!
