Fabulous tour!!!
, Aug 2019
We had 2 brilliant days in St Petersberg. The tour company TJTravel were fabulous. We went to many of the main sites and were fast tracked through them all with no hold ups. Our tour guide was Daria and driver was Dimitri. Both were lovely and friendly. Also very helpful with a small medical problem in St Peretsberg where Daria translated for us in a Russian pharmacy and we managed to get medication. The transport was a Mercedes minivan with free Wii. Lunch each day was traditional Russian cuisine, both 3 courses with coffee or tea and water included. I really cannot fault the service and friendliness of the staff. Booking was easy as well. Overall it was brilliant. Thanks Viator for a great trip!!
Beatiful trip with lots of things to see

St. Pettersburg is very pretty and a lot of things to see. It is good to book this tour with TJ Travel through Viator. They are so prompt with answering questions, great customer service. The car is new and comfortable, very strong wifi for guests to use, plenty of bottle water for guests to drink. The tour guide is nice, fluent in English and professional. The tour is not forcing guests to buy stuffs (even they stopped in a souvenir gift shop but in a short time for rest room break, and store staffs did not forcing us to buy anything) The food including in the tour is ok (In the first day meal, the chicken and bread is dry but overall food is ok, not super great or super delicious but OK to eat, soup and ice cream is tasty.) The only thing I feel not happy about this tour is how they balance it. For two days tour, we had a long and tired day in the first day which we had to go lots of places from 10-7 Pm, since the second day is very short and light for us (from 8-3PM) I wish they can make it balance for amount of time because we totally didn't have enough time to visit the beautiful garden in the first day. The tour guide just dragged us through all the beautiful landscape that we wish we could have at least 10-15 minutes more to enjoy it and take more pictures of the place) And in the second day of the tour, we were done so quick that we are back in the cruise ship too early, 2 -3 hours before the boarding time.
St. Petersburg - the city I never knew I wanted to visit before visiting there
, Aug 2019
Fantastic 2 days spent visiting St. Petersburg. They handled everything - tourist visa, transportation, entry fees and lunches. Our English speaking guide Elizabeth was extremely knowledgeable and pleasant. She made our visit there even better. Our driver Nicholas safely took us to all of our destinations and after dropping us off, seemed to reappear when needed to take us to our next stop. No easy feat. I can not impress enough what a beautiful city St. Petersburg is. We enjoyed every minute there and we felt the charge was well worth everything we received and saw. I would highly recommend this company and a visit to this city.
St. Petersburg 2 day tour

This tour was excellent !! We packed so much into this 2 days, our guide was great she was able to give us a crash course in the history of St. Petersburg but still keep it fun. The restaurant for day one was great , the second day was not very good.
The Best Ever!!

incredible 2 days in St Petersburg
, Aug 2018
A most informative and jam packed 2 day tour of St Petersburg . Picked up promptly from cruise dock both days. Our tour guide Daria was one of the best guides we have ever had.Her English was perfect, and her love of her city was obvious. Price for this tour is half of what the cruise company charges, but exactly what we were looking for.
Terrific tour of St Petersburg
, Jun 2018
This two day tour of St Petersburg was amazing! The museums were awe inspiring. The ability of this tour company to enter the Hermitage Museum for example, before it was officially opened in the morning was essential. It saved soo much time over waiting in line. As a result you were able to see everything without being rushed. It allowed you to see many more attractions during the day than you ordinarily would. The ability of the van drivers to maneuver in the city saved even more time than if you were on a bus. In two days, we were able to see more than those in buses saw in three. The licensed tour guide was really well versed on every topic we saw and asked about.

Fantastic tour with an excellent guide who worked tirelessly to make our tour enjoyable. She was knowledgeable, friendly and as caring as a MOTHER HEN with her flock. Our tour could have lasted a month and still not allowed enough time to see BEAUTIFUL St Petersburg completely. We were very impressed with the FRIENDLY Russian people we had the pleasure to meet on the tour. BEAUTIFUL CITY!
