ReviewsI would do it again with MaxiBaltTours!

My wife and I contacted Alexei on line with our desires. Alexei put together the most perfect two day visit. I just can't believe anyone else could have done it better. Dinner selections were perfect as per our suggestions.

The vodka .....smoooth as silk!

The restaurants wonderful. Food is the sole of the people. I have been raised on American- Russian foods. Both of our grand parents came from Russia. We wanted to try some new Russian dishes. Alexei did not let us down. Everything was waiting for us when we got to the loss of time looking at a menu. Just dining perfection.

I could go on and on as to how great the St Petersburg two day tour with MaxiBalt was ! I'll save the repetition and just say, if you use any other tour company in Saint Pete.....don't blame it on me. You will not be disappointed. It's that simple. Contact Alexei and he will take great care of you !!!!!!

A few years ago we were in St. Petersburg for two days on a cruise.  Before we left home, I did a lot of research in finding a local tour guide.  I found the perfect guy.....

Alexei Volkov of MaxiBaltTours.  ( )

When I first noticed his web site, it sounded like he had an American put it together. Turned out, not so.   Actually he was a college student in America for a while. He speaks and sounds more American than Russian and understands the American way of life.  He is clear and very easy for Americans to understand.

When I started emailing him about doing a two day tour for us, he went out of his way to make it more than perfect in many ways.  I let him know what things my wife wanted to see and what we wanted to eat.  When we arrived at restaurants, the tables were already set ( saving a lot of our tour time ), along with the fine Russian vodka for me and wines for my wife that I suggested. He even pre-ran the foods a few days before to make sure it was what I asked for.  It’s not that I’m super fussy, I just asked for a variety of local foods to try, not just one big fancy dinner.  We wanted to taste Russia. The choices were memorable! Some I had to reorder more of.

He was able to get us in back doors and eliminate long lines at local attractions.

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.
