Reviews › Exellent choice for St Petersburg excursion tours - Emerald Princess
This is the best 2 day tour one can find in St Petersburg with cruise ship visit. It is almost half the price comparing with what Emerald Princess offered for a 2 day excursion tour. Actually, one gets to see more with the MaxiBaltTours.
The tour is well organized and very efficient. The guests get to see the most important and impressive sites in St Petersburg in shortest and most economical way. The two Russian style lunches are very cozy and tasty. The lady tour guide, Christina, is very polite, considerated, humor and knowledgable with excellent English communication skills. She explains well about all the sites, combining a lot of Rassian history and extra stories.
The owner of the company, Alexei is very helpful in helping us to plan the tour with very quick responses before the cruise started with email communications. He made the arrangement for the best Swan Lake ballet performance we ever see.
The highlight of the entire 11 days of Baltic cruise is these two days we spend at St Petersburg, where we enjoy the most is the ballet performance. Hermitage, Catherine Palace, and the Peterhoff Fountain Parks are also extremely impressive. St. Petersburg has so much to offer so that two days is way too short to know the city.
We have to come back and hope to see Alexei and Christina again!
