Excellent overview of St Petersburg history and sights
, Aug 2019
Our guide, Svetlana, was incredibly knowledgeable of all facets of St Petersburg history and art. A very enjoyable 3 days!
St. Petersburg 3 day tour
, Aug 2019
Svetlana and Slava were absolutely wonderful! The knowledge that Svetlana had was never ending and she made all of the stops interesting. This tour covered more then we would have ever imagined. It made us want to return to St. Petersburg in the future and explore more of this beautiful city. Slava was friendly, professional and an awesome driver. Svetlana and Slava work very well together! I would recommend this trip to anyone.
Exceeding Our Expectations
, Jul 2019
For our Baltic Cruise, my wife and I used Viator to book a 3-day no-visa tour of St. Petersburg in lieu of our ship's excursion offering. We are glad we did. The booking placed us with SPB Tours, a local company. There was a total of 16 tourists, coming from 2 ships at the port. There was an SPB rep right as we cleared the passport control, and we were hooked up with our group instantly. It was very well organized. The tour itself was amazing, due to a terrific guide (Svetlana), excellent driver (Alexander) and comfortable Mercedes van. While the 3-day itinerary seems to be somewhat standardized across all tour companies, Svetlana fought like a tigress to shorten our waits at the various lines, sometimes teaming briefly with other SPB guides when there was an advantage to be gained. I think this maximized what we were able to see each day. She was highly knowledgeable about all we saw, especially the art and architecture, and the group was small enough that anyone who wanted had plenty of 1 on 1 time with Sveta to ask questions about St. Petersburg or just get her view on life in Russia. I would recommend this tour to anyone who will be in St. Petersburg for 3 days and wants an excellent overview of the amazing highlights.
What a wonderful Tour, absolutely...

What a wonderful Tour, absolutely amazing time. We were so well looked after, the sights we saw were amazing, and so well organised, our guide and driver looked after us so well, never had a moments worry. Would highly recommend this tour company, it far exceeded anything the cruise ship had to offer and at a fraction of the cost. All the paperwork, visa's etc were excellent and their was absolutely no hassle with the immigration, straight through each day and returned to the ship on time every time. No waiting in Queues, really well organised and great fun.

Our tour was absolutely wonderful. Boris, our tour guide was delightful and our group were amazed by his unbelievable knowledge. He even timed the day so that we were able to beat the crowds and see so much. We all felt very privileged to have him show us around beautiful St Petersburg.

Having booked with Viator, we were put with SPB Tours who organise excursions in St. Petersburg and other European cities. There were 14 of us in a minibus. The same minibus and driver stayed with us for the three days. Our guide, Misha, was a native of St. Petersburg. Her love of the city and its art was clear through the enthusiasm she showed for all the places we visited. As well as speaking excellent English, she was a warm and friendly person and made everyone feel welcome. We packed a lot into three days but never felt rushed. The second day involved an early start so that we could visit the Peterhof Palace before the crowds arrived and SPB were able to get us into the Hermitage on the day it is normally closed in order to avoid the worst congestion. We were scheduled to visit the Russian Museum on the final day but as most of the group had understood the tour included the Faberge Museum, the company changed the itinerary to make the substitution. Nothing was too much trouble. We felt the tour was very good value, considering it included three very good lunches, wi-fi, bottled water every day, all admissions and photo permits, a boat ride and a ride on the Underground, plus the expertise of Misha and the services of the driver, who never kept us waiting. I would heartily recommend this tour. It was a highlight of the cruise.

Our guide, Dasha was Russian yet spoke English fluently. This tour was soo much more than I expected. Everything on the itinerary was covered and then some. Dasha was very knowledgeable about all aspects of every museum and palace we entered. And on the bus, she continually told us about places we passed and she also gave us a complete history of Russian culture. She made sure we had time to shop and that there were always clean bathroom facilities available. Our driver was Andre, and he was very helpful also, He would help you get off the bus. One day he brought extra umbrellas for us to use in the morning drizzle. And after the rain stopped, he wiped the bus windows so we could take clear pictures again! This tour gave us so much insight into Russian life today and in the past. Thanks for making our trip to Russia unforgettable!!!
Once we had cleared Russian...
, Aug 2017
Once we had cleared Russian immigration, we could see the SPB tour guides, who were conducting our Viator tour, by the cruise terminal exit. SPB is a local Russian company that specialises in tours of St. Petersburg. Our tour guide was Dascha and our driver Dimitri, and on arrival at the minibus, we were given water bottles each, foldaway ponchos, maps and audio guides. The SPB minibus tours cater for a maximum of 16, and there were 13 in our group. Dascha was excellent throughout, being fluent in English and Russian, and over the course of the 3-day tour, as well as describing the sights, told us a lot about the Russian way of life, and how they viewed other countries. Also, Dascha was in constant contact with other tour groups, and often swapped our itinerary to avoid queues and delays. We were also in constant contact with her via the audio guides. I wont go into the detail of each sight, as these can easily be investigated on google, but just list what we saw. On day 1, we went :- a        On a metro ride from the deepest station 300 foot underground beautiful stations and cheap frequent trains. b        Outside St. Isaacs Cathedral c        Souvenir shop with complimentary vodka and coffee d        The Church of the Spill Blood e        The Faberge Museum f        Lunch at the 5 Hermitage Hotel g        Inside St. Isaacs Cathedral h        The Yusupov Palace On day 2, we went :- a        Peterhof Palace b        Lunch at nearby restaurant c        Catherines Palace On day 3, we went :- a        On a canal boat trip. b        St. Peter and Paul Fortress and Cathedral c        The Hermitage Museum d        Lunch at a nearby restaurant e        Hermitage Administration block f        Souvenir shop with complimentary vodka and coffee On all 3 days, we ate in very good restaurants, serving excellent Russian meals one with complimentary vodka. All in all, an excellent 3 day tour, with a brilliant guide and driver, in which we saw all the main sights, and learnt a lot about Russian life. Would recommend an independent small group tour, over the cruise ship large bus tours.

We had an excellent guide, Elene, and an english speaking driver, Alexis. Elene's knowledge of St Petersburg was phenomenal and the tour itinerary took us to all the right places at the right time to avoid big queues. Overall, a superb well organised tour.
