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)
It was an excellent experience! We loved the views, but we were also lucky to see the musical bridges go up! It was surreal seeing all the people on the shore and all the boats around us. Magical! We highly recommend this cruise but do make sure to bring something warm because it can get very cold
The boat tour was very good!! The boat was big, lots of space for inside and outside views. Audio tour in "english" worked as well!! Very nice activity and the city views from the river channels is just great!! Beautiful city!!
This was a 75-minute tour. About half of the time, the boat was on Neva and the other half on Fontanka. There was no live guide. The guide (on speaker) was in English. Overall, a nice tour and the price was good.
A must visit ....good information about the city in English and a beautiful view of the city at night...also the main attraction of the drawbridge opening must not be missed
