Recently visited St. Petersburg and had the most wonderful 2-days. We saw all the highlights of this amazing city. The Hermitage (minus the cloak room...that part is no fun) was amazing. Nice boat tour but you have to sit up top to really benefit from the tour. Peterhof, also amazing. The trip on the subway was a huge highlight for us we just wish we could have gone a couple more stops. Lunch on the first day was fine, nothing spectacular but a great representation of traditional Russian lunch. This one was included in our ticket price. Lunch on day 2 was a bit more of a challenge. The restaurant was not prepared for us so it took forever but that was on the restaurant, not the tour operator. The guides for the tours worked hard to get restaurant staff to fix it which slowly got better. By that time, food was cold. This lunch is on your own money which was a bummer. The tour overall was good and I would recommend it to anyone but what made it special was our guide Tatiana! She was amazingly knowledgeable, friendly, efficient, accommodating and flexible. Her calm demeanor and positive nature made for an exceptional experience. Thanks to her, our 2-days in St. Petersburg were very memorable and will remain with us forever.

First, there was a very good communication between the excursion staff and myself. They were always swift in replying to any queries. Our guide Svetlana was passionate about Saint Petersburg and she made the 2 days very enjoyable, unforgettable and memorable. She is a Mega guide! My highlight was the river cruise. Lovely views and pictures. Be prepared for large crowds in the Hermitage and Catherine's Palace.
