    Hi in Moscow I got a card to go around in saint Petersburg apart from the blunder on the part of Getyourguide cancellation of my pass the pass was ok. Unfortunately the new one I had to paid was in a form of a booklet in which you had to tear sections in order to use. That was very inconvenient. Also instead of looking for the place of collection you should have an office in the airport. The time for collection was also bad, 11 am is very late.

    We had a great day, saw unbelievable places!!! We booked 2 guides because we had a mixed language groupe. We just choosed that way to see the city because they offered us Portuguese and German as guides. The comunication with the company was very good. We booked in advance over 6 months. Got the confirmation about the guides, pick up and visum for 13 people. Unfornatuanly one day before, while we were in the cruise, we got the information that they couldn't offer a potuguese speaker guide and that they never could do that, this language were never available. 6 months longer... they did not informed us. I had to translate To Portuguese, what was tyring and not that enjoyable. But the only way. We had 4 eldery people in the group, so we got to late for the last atraction and could not get in. Wathever, not the foult of the guides for the false information about the language... the girls were brilliant. They did a very good job! Explained very well and were very friendly and patient.
