We travelled to St Petersburg on Serenade of the Seas end of May 2015. Having looked through the ships excursion offers we decided to try TripAdvisor. Where we came across MaxiBaltTours which we booked early April 2015.
We were met outside the terminal by our guide Anna and Alexei. Whereby the highlight of our cruise began. One of the reasons we booked that particular cruise was to visit St Petersburg and we were not disappointed. As a party of four we were blown away by the size and beauty of the city. Anna's knowledge and passion for the city was outstanding.
We were driven around in a very comfortable people carrier by Alexei while Anna described areas of the city. We visited The Hermitage museum, Peterhoff Gardens and Catherine’s Palace to name but a few in a very busy day. We were taken to a typical Russian restaurant and enjoyed a delicious lunch with Anna and Alexei.
All in all an outstanding day which we would thoroughly recommend.
