Private St. Petersburg On Your Own 2 Day (Visas Included)
October 03, 2019
We cannot say enough good things about our guide Tatiana (and driver Sergei). We had been to St. Petersburg before, so we wanted to see some of the less-visited attractions. Tatiana crafted the perfect 2-day itinerary for us after hearing what we wanted and was a wealth of information wherever we went. It was worth every penny!

We had a private tour with Sasha and it was fabulous. I have limited mobility and she was able to tailor our two days to our needs. We saw what we wanted to and were able to skip the lines for the places we went,

We had a beyond amazing time! Our guide, Valentina was so knowledgeable and flexible. Because it was a private tour, we went at our speed and to where we wanted to go. We had discussions about many different things that would not have been possible in a group. We had lunch both days in an authentic Russian eatery and we didn’t wait in lines at our venues. Our driver Alex was amazing, accommodating my scooter at every stop and driving and parking very professionally. We loved them both and highly recommend this tour. It was definitely the highlight of our cruise.

Our tour was amazing. We were able to see so much more than those who booked with groups...Hermitage, Peterhof, St. Isaac's, Peter and Paul, Catherine Palace, and so many more. Our guide was Polina, who is fabulous and we highly recommend her.

We got the two day tour with Anastasia and it was perfect in every way. If you want to experience Russia in the best way possible, I highly recommend this tour. We were taken by shuttle to many attractions around St. Petersburg, including dining and shopping! Thank you so much Anastasia for a fantastic two day experience in Russia! Totally worth the price for this amazing excursion!! A+++++

This was a once in a lifetime tour. We had our personal guide and driver for 2 days. Igor, showed us St. Petersburg from the locals perspective including a lunch at a local restaurant. He took us to the front of the lines at the Hermitage Museum and the cathedral "Our Savior on-the-spilled-blood". Highly recommend this tour.

The private guide/driver provided immediate access to everything, no waiting in line, a bonus particularly at the Hermitage. The time shared together also allowed private dialogue enhancing our understanding of everyday life for the citizens of St. Pete. The guides took us via metro into residential neighborhoods where we dined as locals and visited/shopped in their markets. Our 2 guides, 28yo and 40yo, provided differing views of life since the end of Soviet rule. Both proud of their heritage but from different perspectives; one an infant vs the memories of a 20 yo. shared heartfelt family stories both joyful and sad. Truly a unique experience that was the highlight of our Baltic cruise!!
Great way to see everything you want

This was a wonderful tour and we were able to see everything on our list and more. Sasha was a terrific tour guide. She provided great information and history about the city and helped schedule our two days so we could see everything that we wanted. She even added a few extra sights that weren't on our list. The restaurants she recommended were wonderful and we were able to try some authentic food that the locals eat. Because this was an "on your own tour" the company doesn't purchase any tickets ahead of time. We purchased our tickets to St. Catherine's Palace 30 days before our arrival since we had read that it can sell out. Here is a tip - purchase a ticket for your guide too. The tour guides can get into some museums with their passes but not all. Buying tickets ahead worked out great because the ticket lines were long. I would highly recommend reserving this tour because you can make the most out of your visit to the city if you are limited to two days.

Wonderful Tour Guide!

We were very pleased with our experience in St. Petersburg with tour guide Polina. She helped create our schedule based on our likes and was extremely knowledgeable about each location we visited. She was also very patient, as we have 3 teenagers who sometimes tire of museums and just want to shop or find a sweet treat! Highly recommended!

This excursion was the highlight of our 12 day Baltic cruise! Victoria was a wonderful tour guide! She discussed with us and customized our 2 days to what we wanted to see, as well as providing insight and suggested trips to other venues. We were thankful for her perspective, as the places she suggested were well worth visiting! She had wonderful surprises for us each day, including lunch in a local (not tourist) restaurant where we enjoyed unique and delicious food - some traditional, some "modern" Russian cuisine. It was a great pleasure to have her as our guide (and Maxim as our safe driver) and I highly recommend her for anyone looking for a personalized visit to St. Petersburg! This was significantly better than the group excursions we took that the cruise ship offered. Would do this again in a heartbeat!
