Our 3 day tour of St. Petersburg was the highlight of our cruise, guide Victoria and driver Vadim met us every morning and told our small group of 10 the days itinerary. She arranged times to make sure we didn’t wait on lines, i really appreciated her openness about the politics and day to day life of Russian people. She added a tour of a special art exhibit from the lost paintings of the Hermitage, not on the itinerary but she wanted to share this special collection of which she had an art curators knowledge. Her enthusiasm and knowledge made this tour one I am still talking about. If she represents the quality of TJ tour guides, you will never find a better tour..

We visited St Petersburg and Berlin during our recent Baltic cruise and decided to go with TJ Travel for our city tours....and this was an excellent choice. In the months leading up to the trip any questions we had were promptly answered by email. All paper work was clear, sent promptly and well organized. Once we arrived in the cities the tour guides were present, prepared for our group and well organized for the itinerary. For SPB the guides would adjust the order of the sites based on how busy they were and always managed to get us in when crowds were smaller as the sites got very busy during the day. Now if we talk about the guides, in SPB we were highly impressed with our guide Nina. She had extensive knowledge and energy for our tours. She shared information in great depth, answered questions and quickly became a part of the travel family for our group of 14. The driver we had, Vitaly, was excellent in his skills as the traffic in SPB is quite hectic and disorganized (it appeared anyways) but he was calm and efficient the entire time! We always felt safe during our tour and TJ booked us for lunch on the 3 days at some excellent locations with great meals and friendly service.

For Berlin, much like SPB, we had an excellent guide and driver for the day as it was a long trip from port but TJ again handled this with a well organized and efficient day.

So in summary I would highly recommend TJ tours for your Baltic ports as they did a great job to improve and enhance the experience beyond our expectations!

Frankly, when I looked at TripAdvisor for a good tour of St Petersburg, the TJ Travel reviews were so good that I wondered how it could be real. Oh, it's real! We just came back from a wonderful trip in the Baltics and St. Petersburg was certainly a major highlight.

We would NEVER have seen so many wonderful places or learned so much about the city's rich history and culture without our expert guide Alexandra. And, our driver Alexy got us in and out of busy traffic with ease and that was extra hard since we visited during Russia's annual Navy Day celebrations.

There's a good variety of places to visit with this tour too. We did a boat trip down the canals, visited churches, museums, places and even went to two destinations outside of the city center.

I highly recommend this company and this tour specifically!

These were three days that I will remember for the rest of my life. Alexandra was an extremely knowledgeable and interesting guide, and with the expert driving of Alexei was ingeniously able to circumnavigate the queues and complications of high-season St Petersburg, re-arranging the schedule to take advantage of every crowd-free moment so that our small group of 10 or so was able to go round these many wonderful sights without delays and get a fantastic view of everything. Each day also included a delicious Russian meal at a typical restaurant (even with an excellent vegetarian option). I would unhesitatingly recommend TJ in general, and Alexandra in particular, for their care, inside knowledge and spelndid organisation. We saw far, far more, and paid far less, than our fellow cruise passengers who took the cruise-organised tours; and I can only wish TJ the very best for the future of their business. For me it was the climax of the holiday of a lifetime!

I booked this tour because I did not want the going back and forth to the ship like we would do on our ship's excursions. I communicated via email several times and they always responded promptly. When we arrived, A TJ rep was right there to meet us. Our guide Helen and van driver were the best. Helen was so knowledgable about Russian history and all the sites that we visited. It was so good to be in a group of 14. We had the same guide and van the whole 3 days which meant we could leave our headsets there. It was a great tour and we got to see all the sites that we wanted to see.

Our Guide Mikhael was exceptionally knowledgeable, polite, easy to listen to & went out of his way to make sure our time in SPB was an unforgettable experience.
There were 13 on our tour and requests from our group were never a problem for him to oblige. We think it was the best tour we have done. Our driver Andrew also needs praise for getting us all as close to the attractions as possible.
TJ Travel provided us with an excellent experience, we recommend them highly.

Went on tour with my sister and my mom .Tanya and Edward were perfect and they made my experience in Russia wonderful. Words cannot describe how knowlegible Tanya was and her organizational skills was unmatchable that resulted in a perfect tour experience. Very efficient yet very informative. Edward our driver always drop us off very close to the site and will drive very close to pick us up. We did not even waste time waiting for Edward since he was already at the pick up point. Highly recommending TJ tour for St. Petersburg.

Our guide, Mikhael, was very personable and exceptionally knowledgeable about all of the sites visited. He kept the tour interesting and lively with back stories about the many characters associated with the sites. His English was very good and easy to understand.

I can't stress enough how important a good tour guide is to a visit to St. Petersburg as they make getting into the museums a painless and fast process. Mikhael escorted us to the front of every line we encountered saving us hours of wait time. Our driver, Ivan, transported us in a very comfortable, air conditioned van dropping us off and picking us back up close to the entrance with no wait time.

This tour was very comprehensive and made excellent use of the time available. The cost was a fraction of a similar tour offered through the cruise company.

Your can't go wrong with this team!

Our experience during the three days we spent touring St. Petersburg with TJ Travel truly deserves a six star rating. We were with a group of 13 fellow travelers, under he direction of Svetlana - who was hands down the most pleasant and knowledgeable tour guide we've experienced anywhere. Throughout all 3 days, our driver, Alexander, saw to it that we never had to walk far, or wait to get to back to our comfortable Mercedes coach. The small touches provided by Svetlana were wonderful - arranging for advanced tickets to ensure we weren't caught in long lines, and at the sight of a rain shower, ponchos appear for all of us. The level of detail she provided when experiencing the incredible sights contained in the palaces and museums was second to none. If you're searching for the best way to experience St. Petersburg, do yourself a favor and book TJ Travel. You won't regret it.

This wonderful tour had everything that we were interested in experiencing in the 3 days our ship was in St Petersburg. Our guide Michael and driver Oleg? were experts in getting us around the city during a 3 day Russian holiday. Michael shared his knowledge and insights into his beautiful city's past and present. T J Travel was an excellent choice, priced so much less than the ship's excursions, and including so much more. Our group was only 8, perfect for seeing the sights. Unforgettable memories, such as standing briefly in line as the snow came down May 3. What an adventure! (What I always say when plans go differently than expected) Thanks T J Travel.
