Reviews › St Petersburg two day tour - simply the best!
This tour was simply amazing. We traveled on the Norwegian Star and I was a little concerned because I had always booked my excursions through the Cruise Line. After this tour I will never book with a Cruise line again.
Our St Petersburg tour guide Mary Anne was simply amazing. She truly immersed us in Russian culture. We even got to ride the subway. We had a small group of 16 which made this tour even better. The driver was always very responsible making sure he picked us up at the right times and dropped us off as close as possible to the sights.
There were so many highlights that I can not begin to describe them all. I had wanted to see the Church of the Spilled Blood and the similar tour through Norwegian did not make a stop at this Church. When I think of Russia I think of this Church with it's onion topped columns and it's mosaics. The inside of the church was breath taking.
The two-day trip covered everything I wanted to see and more! We even opted to take the night excursion, Russian folk dancing. Yes we were exhausted but I wanted to spend every moment in St Petersburg. The dancing was relaxing and entertaining. It is a small theater but full of history.
Again, this tour exceeded my expectations. The days were well organized and the lunch both days was great. I traveled with my husband, my mother who is 76, my step-father and two- 20 year old girls. We all had a fabulous time!
