Hello, Anna, I am writing to thank you for the fabulous tour you organised for us. We had a brilliant time and there are so many questions we wish we had had the time to ask. Please could you thank Elena for being so helpful, informative and friendly
and also Damir for his great driving and putting up with our strange requests. We would all like to come back to St Petersburg one day and if we do, I will be in touch.
Best wishes
Pauline, John, Mike, Lucy, Gill & Damo


We had the best day we could imagine on our tour with Anna. Everything was delivered beyond our expectations, starting from the booking experience, the pre-tour communication and visa process, the on-time pick-up at the pier, and the flawless execution of the itinerary throughout the day. Anna is knowledgeable, informative, personable, and professional. Also caring – she even found a pharmacy open on a holiday for me to get meds! Please skip the tours offered by your cruise line and book with this company. You will be glad you did! I hope we return to St. Petersburg soon to enjoy more of what we experienced.
