Natalia, my guide was wonderful and so knowledgeable about Russian history and culture! Plus I had the good fortune to have a private tour and so was able to learn more about Russia in depth. Not many people want to visit St. Petersburg in November when the weather was bad. At Pushkin we had snow and that made Russia authentic... More

Dear Sandy! Thank you very much for your kind words. It was pleasure for us to host you in St Petersburg. Although we had only few hours - we tried to show you the best of this "Venice of the North". Truly - November is not the most popular month to visit this area due to a kind of sleety... More

We booked a 2-day private tour of Saint Petersburg with MaxiBalt, thanks mostly to the opinions of other travellers. Alexei Volkov, director of the company, was a tremendous help in planning our itinerary and he was gracious and pleasant in both electronic communication and phone calls. Our group of 7 opted for the private tour in order to visit the... More

We completed back-to-back cruises on the Regal Princess on September 24th. Of all the many ports we visited, St. Petersburg was the absolute best. St. Petersburg was warm and sunny and the sights were plentiful. We were a small group, 9 the first day and 8 the second. Our guide, Olga, is a university-educated young woman who introduced her city... More

I don't usually write reviews but wanted to as I was so pleased with MaxiBaltTours. The hotel I booked with recommended MaxiBaltTours so I contacted them directly to book a 2 day tour of St. PETERSBURG. Alexei was so prompt in getting back to me, and to accommodate every thing I needed while I was in St. PETERSBURG. I will... More

I've tried twice before to see the Faberge Eggs...and this time, I DID!! My thanks to the special efforts of Alexei and his team. And then, the Hermitage...I've been there before, but this time our guide (I wish I remembered her name) knew the story of the sculpture I fell in love with 30 years ago. So knowledgeable, so nice,... More

St Petersburg is an amazing place and even better with a great guide. Our ship was late to port due to mechanical problems. MaxiBalt waited for us and still gave us the 8 hours we were to have for the first day. We were very nervous about using a non ship based tour. Save money and get great tours with... More
