This tour and our guide exceeded our expectations. We were provided with a fantastic snapshot of life in St Petersburg as well as visiting the amazing palaces and churches. We sampled Russian food each day and Tatiana was very knowledgeable on art and Russian history. Spent 2 days with an outstanding guide and driver inside and outside of the city as not all the places are situated in the city center. I did not expect to see that many attractions on this tour. Excellent time!

I fully admit I was wary of not taking the cruise tour, but taking the trip with Excoor, it was one of the best decisions of my life. Not only did I save a very large sum of money, our trip was, I am sure, far superior. Our tour guide was Lisa, who was absolutely superb. Her knowledge of everything in and about St Petersburg was incredible, and she also was a wonderful warm person that made it so much easier for her and her party to get ahead of any queues or avoid time-consuming checks.

Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you, for a wonderful tour. Our group will remember St Petersburg for a very long time and we will recommend your excellent service to everyone we know. We were so very lucky to have Dimitri as our driver and Irene as our guide. Irene is a magnificent ambassador for you and your beautiful city – we all felt that we had made a new friend and we were genuinely sad to say goodbye

Tour was professionally run. Guide was knowledgeable, friendly and caring of our mixed group. Due to a series of street blockages with preparations for a parade the guide had to reorganise on the run, this led to delays at the Hermitage and only limited time was available. Although the guide made the best of the situation for the tour group, with prior planning the delay maybe could have been avoided. Overall though a professionally run tour that provided all we expected, would certainly recommend.
