ReviewsOne day tour of St Petersburg

Dear Elena & Alexei

Thank you again for such a fabulous day.
The weather was very kind to us also.

As promised, here is the photo from John’s camera.
This morning we spent some time inside The Church of Our Saviour on Spilled Blood, after which we had a couple of rides on the Metro to check out the amazing stations.

We have just had a short rest at the hotel on our way to the canal cruise.
We met two other Aussies at breakfast - they may be joining us on the cruise and at dinner.

Thank you again for the tips,  and we hope you are having a lovely weekend with the brilliant sunny day  :)

Thank you for the cruise booking and restaurant advice.
We accepted and enjoyed both. 
As a bonus, we managed to capture some interesting twilight photos. Samples attached.
We have very much enjoyed our brief visit to St Petersburg, especially with your help and Elena’s.
Our friends will all be receiving glowing endorsements. :)

Ken and John

Alexei Volkov, owner of MaxiBaltTours, impressed us from the very first contact. Unlike some people in the industry, Alexei responded promptly to the first and subsequent enquiries in detailed and informative way. His suggestions about the best itinerary for our tour were first rate, and he was proactive when circumstances changed, such as when a palace we planned to visit was to be closed for a special event!

Our guide for the day, Elena, was obviously 'hand picked' to match our interests in St Petersburg. Her knowledge and enthusiasm about her city and its history were first class.

Alexei also recommended a great 'local' restaurant and a canal boat tour, both of which were most enjoyable.

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.

If you are looking for a great way to relax after a day of sightseeing and want to get to know the Russian culture and mind, then this show is definitely for you. You will see Russian & Cossack dancing, listen to famous national instruments while beautiful voices sing of the joyful traditions in the Russian countryside. Feel yourself Russian!

Canal Tour

Canal Tour

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.
