Best choice!

No doubt it was the best decision to do this 2 day tour in a small group. St. Petersburg was packed with tourists, and several ships arrived on the same day and time. Traffic is chaotic, has no control and organization, with a van you can move a little better. With a small group, getting to points of interest is quicker and easier. Now, be careful with your bags ... one person from our group was stolen inside the Hermitage Museum, even though they received the cautionary warning, and walking with the bag in front of them are quick and effective. To make a police report you need to pay around € 150. Anyway, everywhere needs a lot of attention. We were very lucky with our guide Maria ❤️ Care, attention, affection, sympathy and much more given to our group in two days of much learning and appreciation. Getting ready to walk around 18 km in two days seems a lot, but beauty makes us enchanted that you can't see the effort

Far more than we expected.

We weren't sure what to expect when we left the ship but our fears were immediately allayed by the appearance of our personal guide and a driver in a modern air conditioned 8 seater. For two days our guide passionately taught us about the history of St. Petersburg. Nothing was too much including finding a large wheelchair and pushing me around The Hermitage and Catherine Palace. We later discovered just how smooth and professional our driver was compared with others! We cannot recommend this service highly enough. Thank you.
