We bought a 3-day City pass - a great saver indeed. Hop on hop off bus was good to orientate ourselves with the most significant sights but the traffic was really bad in the afternoon and the bus did not stick to schedules. So, go early and ensure that you are a few minutes earlier at the hop on stops. The hop on hop off boat was also enjoyable. Don’t miss out on the free St Petersburg walking tour. Plan your visits to the museums well - too many, too little time... Another tip: plan the river cruises in advance and exchange all your vouchers for firm tickets at the Embankment 2 ticket office to secure your seats.
Our guide was a wonderful young lady who knew her material quite well. The cathedrals are so marvellous, and one can never see them in one day without a guide, except in the unlikely event that you know your way around St. Petersburg. It really is also a walking tour of town. We stopped at some extra sites as well, and our guide left us at the wonderful fast food restaurant Teremok. She made sure we had English menus and could order and then set off to her next tour.
Viktoria (our tour guide) and Slava (our driver) was amazing. Very friendly. Viktoria was very knowledgeable and approachable. Awesome job. Thank you for showing my family and I a wonderful time in St Petersburg.
I cannot defeat my last review, but get your guide was able to help us take care of our problem right away! They got us on a boat the next evening, great customer service
The knowledge of the guide. The beautiful architecture. The amazing hospitality of the people
