Busy agenda for a single day

1. Representative met us at ship terminal with sign 2. Tour of the city began on bus 3. Delay at river due to boat availability. Much confusion as to what was happening and no info passed on to customers. 4. Restaurant choice was poor....not much food selection. Could this be the tour guide's favorite??? 5. church of spilled blood tour was good 6. Hermitage tour was too long.. and it was difficult to hear tour guide. 7. Transferred to another tour guide for the Peterhof Tour 8. Oksana knew the site and the history.....too much walking thru gardens...we never got to see the inside of the residence.

Excellent Tour and View of St Petersburg

Our tour guide, Victoria, was an excellent guide. She meet us promptly after exciting our Royal Caribbean ship, and quickly whisked us away to Peterhof - spectacular! Our entire day was nothing short of amazing views, beautiful palaces, the Hermitage, cathedrals (with a view from the top of St Issacs), museums, boat ride, and an authentic restaurant with spectacular Russian food. Victoria went above and beyond to make sure we were able to take in all of the sites and splendor of St Petersburg in two short days!

Irina our tour guide from T&T made sure that we had a great experience touring St. Petersborg in only 9 hours. However in our description was indicated a visit to the Peter and Paul fortress,but Irina had not been informed, and in the end we had no more time. We will certainly use Viator again.

An Excellent Experience
Dave W
, Jul 2019
I would highly recommend this company. Their organisation and efficiency were first class. Our guide Svetlana Gorbkhova could not have been more friendly or knowledgeable. My wife and I arrived in St Petersburg on a Royal Caribbean cruise ship and were made to wait on board until their own tour parties left. Despite being 30 minutes late for our arranged tour start we need not have worried because our tour guide was stood waiting for us after we had gone through customs. The 9 hour tour was packed with everything we had hoped for. It included visiting Peterhof which was stunning, a trip on the hydrofoil, a canal ride, as well as visiting the main sights of St Petersburg (including going in the Hermitage museum). The fact that we were on a small bus with only 6 other people meant that the whole experience was much more personal than if we had been on a large coach with 40 or 50 other people.. The price of the tour was also very competitive, especially in comparison to those organised by the cruise line. Overall - an excellent tour and we will definitely look to use this company again when we next cruise.

The tour was perfect for my family...

The tour was perfect for my family including two children aged 8 and 12yrs.Our guide Irena picked us up from the cruise terminal along with another six guests and shuttled us around the City in a mini bus. We stopped off at all the important sights. We were able to clearly hear her commentary on what we saw via radio headphone sets and stopped a few minutes at all the important locations. At the Hermitage we were faced with a massive queue .Irena however impressively swept us through a side entrance bypassing the crowd.. She was most informative and gave us time to take photos whilst viewing the collections in the magnificent salons. The river cruise was fantastic as we were able to view the City from the water as intended by the architects of this magnificent City and avoided the traffic jams . Finally we had 30 minute cruise on the Hydrofoil across the Bay of Finland.The fountains at the Peterhof palace were truly magnificent Whilst we were tired by the end of the day we felt we had seen and made most of the visit to St Petersburg .The following day we put our feet up and rested our legs . Whilst the trip was not cheap we paid a lot less than we would have done had we booked through the cruise line.The commentary was very good ,and we were well champeroned around the busy churches and palaces without fear of getting lost in the crowds . Thanks Viator and Irena for a cracking VIP trip.

We had a lot of problems connecting with the tour company. The Viator receipt said the tour started at 8:00 AM, but after waiting 20 minutes with no company coming to the port, it took us another 15 minutes to get them to talk to us on the phone and then another 15 minutes for them to figure out what was happening. They told us that they had sent PDF tickets for us to Viator saying the tour started at 9:00 AM, but we never received anything from Viator I even check 1800 spam messages to see if that was why I didn't get the tickets, but nothing from Viator. Then we got transfered through 3 different people, a taxi and a private driver to finally get to our tour guide. Once we were with the tour guide the day went mostly very well. The tour guide was knowledgeable and friendly. The driver was also nice. There were several mix ups where she didn't get the right tickets from the company and they had to bring the tickets to us, but generally if was a good tour with just my wife and I in the Small group tour we were promised.
