ReviewsExcellent and Economical Alternative to Cruise Tours Offered

We chose to do a 2 day Visa-Free small group whirlwind tour of St. Petersburg instead of the Oceania cruise excursion options.

We saw so much more of St. Petersburg in 2 days than any of the tours offered by our cruise ship AND it was less expensive!

What?! Loved that.

Plus, it was a small group tour with an excellent Russian guide, so informative and attentive to our needs. We felt totally safe and catered to.

Additionally, my friend and I wanted to see Swan Lake ballet at a reputable theater and this was easily arranged with superb seats in the middle only 6 rows back from the stage!

The owner and a helper came to pick us up at the cruise ship and brought us to the theater (35 min drive through the city). When we were exiting the theater (around 11pm), he was right there with umbrellas because it was raining. It was a magical evening that turned out to be one of the highlights of the trip.

We felt completely safe and cared for. I can't say enough about how valuable an experience those two days were! I highly recommend cruisers use MaxiBaltTours as an alternative to the cruise tours offered!

When you are in St. Petersburg, ballet is one of the things you can't miss! This is where the Russian Composer Peter Tchaikovsky wrote Swan Lake, one of the most beautiful and dramatic ballets of all times. Ballet here is always accompanied by an orchestra and you can be guaranteed that you will see a high quality performance.

What can be more impressive than seeing the beauty of St. Petersburg leisurely from the water? The city is criss-crossed with small rivers and canals which make the city look like Venice or Amsterdam. Our comfortable boat will take you past the granite embankments along the main waterways of St. Petersburg.
