The tour was great and the inner cabin was heated. Having said that, there were two issues : The entire commentary is in Russian which meant that I understood NOTHING of what we were seeing except for the Hermitage which I had visited What a pity given that St Petersburg is full of history! Another minor issue is that the site states that food and drinks can be purchased on board. This was NOT available. Overall, seeing the bridges open etc was fantastic BUT the tour package failed to deliver in terms of content and facilities. I could have easily taken the NEVA TRAVEL tour which offers the same (no food or drinks and everything in Russian)
This was worthwhile and excellent although we could only use the ticket for one day. Ticket much cheaper than buying at St Isaacs ticket booth. Nice courteous English speaking staff. We took Green route on an older bus and Red on a newer one which had a slightly better sound system. Otherwise both excellent with good information and great views from the top deck. The roof was closed so the cabin quite warm. At least 48 hour ticket would be recommended as you need lots of time to see all of St Petersburg and hop on/off for all of its sites.
Our guide, Olga, was fantastic! She was extremely knowledgeable, spoke excellent English, and knew just how to get us into all the places we booked with ease. There were only seven of us on our excursion so we were able to interact with her and get all questions answered. Of all our excursions, this St Petersburg was the best!
Excellent way to get around St. Petersburg's main tourist sites. We've always used City Sightseeing Hop-on/hop-off tour bus in most of the European cities we've been in and found it the quickest & safest way to get around. We've been very happy with their services so far...
The buses were clean, warm (very appreciated during these raining days), the tour guide very helpful and the driver very skilled (especially in the rush hour traffic). I really had a good time and I strongly recommend this tour.
