Our 2-day SPB Highlights Tour in St. Petersburg was definitely the highlight of our Baltic cruise. Our guide Anna was knowledgeable and personable, but the best thing was the way she (and our driver Vladimir) managed to steer our group of 16 people around the summer crowds (the early entrance to the Hermitage was especially valuable). My kids (ages 11... More

They were very professional and courteous. Had wifi in the mini man! Wow! Guides spoke very good english and they were kind and nice staff. We arrived in the city via Princess Cruise liner and took a 2 day city tour with SPF. Totally worth it!

SPB has very knowledgeable and friendly tour guides. They are extremely organized and care very much about pleasing everyone on the tour. We had a wonderful guide named Sveta. Be prepared for two very full days during which you will see all the highlights of the beautiful city of St. Petersburg.

Last July we (a group of six people) were on SPB two-day “St. Petersburg Deluxe Tour” and “Stockholm Highlights from Nyashamn” tours. We were very happy with what SPB offered us: - Greater value compared to cruise ship operated on-shore excursions - Small group with a maximum of 16 people per bus (less waiting time for loading/unloading, lunch, and washroom...

We had the 2 days' St Petersburg excursion with SPB tours, it's worth every single penny of it! The tour guide is considerate, and knowledge with fluent English. There were about 10-12 people in the minivan, much less than the cruise's big bus. They brought the bottled water for us and the driver provided WiFi hot spot during the ride.... More
