    The Hermitage and the Catherine Palace and Gardens
    , Apr 2020
    Our group of 10 was the perfect size. The guide spoke excellent English and was very knowledgeable. She was considerate of everyone's needs and paced the tour so that everyone was able to participate but had enough time to experience the sights. The Hermitage Museum, Catherine Palace, Church of the Spilled Blood, St. Isaac, the cruise, the subway, the city of St. Petersburg all came alive to us by the history and information provided. Thank you, MaxiBalt Tours for a fantastic 2 day St. Petersburg tour!

    Dear Josephine, Thank you so much for your kind words. It's especially valuable and nice to receive such candid reviews during these days when unfortunately tour business around the world has been halted. Your feedback brought back memories from October 2019 when your tour took place. It was mild Indian summer season in St Petersburg with beautifully coloured leaves and a lot less tourist crowds. Perfect season to visit this city. I am very glad that you enjoyed your tour with us - we did our best to show you the cream of our favourite St Petersburg. Please spread the word! And we hope that that things get better soon and we can start travelling as we did before. Wishing you all health and well being. Your friends from St Petersburg, Russia - Alexei, Veronica and Ilia

    Did 2 day of St. Petersburg and on first day had 8 guests and did the downtown. On the second day 3 new guests were added who wanted to see downtown. Initially were told that we did those sites yesterday. At end of the second day we were informed that we were going back to see Church of Spilled Blood for the 3 new guests. So 8 guests were inconvenienced for the desires of 3 guests. This is not right, MaxiBaltTours should have done separate arrangements for the new guests.

    Dear Rich, Thank you for your feedback. I do understand your concern. Let me clarify the situation: yes, 3 people that went to Moscow on day-1 were added to your group tour on day two. Some sites and photo stops were added to the end of itinerary therefore it got extended and enriched at no extra cost. Small group tour description allows us to re-arrange itineraries as long as our guests get to see what's promised. And all the rest in your group were happy about it. I am really sorry if you felt inconveniences - and yet hope that you still enjoyed your St Petersburg tour because we all did the best as usual!

    Four of us were on an exclusive 2 day Maxi Balt tour. It was extremely well organized and we saw everything in an efficient way. Our guide, Veronica, and are driver were excellent. Could not have been better.

    Dear Gordon, Thank you for your nice review. We are glad that you liked our services. There were only 4 of you so your tour turned out to be private. It's easier to manage such intensive itineraries with less people in a group so you got the best we could offer. Please spread the word! Your Russian friends, Veronica + Alexei
    Ilyana was amazing .

    This was a fantastic 2 day tour with very efficient( Maxibalt lady tour guide who I am very sorry to say I have forgotten her name. She was able to take us to so many sights in those 2 days with some sights being visitor free due to her strategy of knowing when sights would be more visitor friendly without all the crowds. WE had a small group of 13 6 couples and my self.. The tour was more than I could have wished for as the church of spilled blood, metro stations were my high lites. Thank you Maxibalt Tour lady - Beryl from NZ
    Jam-packed Tour
    , Aug 2019
    We were in St Petersburg for only 2 days and our tour guide Veronika made sure we saw as much of it as we could. She is an exceptional tour guide, extremely knowledgeable, and a wizard at what she does, somehow getting us into the different palaces, cathedrals, and museums quickly and without ever having to wait in line. She even took us for a ride on the Russian metro, which was weird in and of itself, but impressive and exhilarating at the same time. We can't say enough about her. She made our first trip to Russia one we will remember for a long time.

    Thank you very much for your candid review. Glad we made your first trip to Russia enjoyable. And we do hope that it's not the last one. Please let us know about your next voyage and I'll make sure I'll have Veronica assigned for you again. Best regards, Alexei
    Great visit and experience

    We enjoyed our visit and tour and we had a nice and knowledge tour guide. We were a small group and the van always was on time to pick us up and take to another point of visit. We were so happy with our tour and visit and we recommend this tour without any hesitation.

    Dear Priscilla and Keon! Thank you for your kind words. I am glad that you liked your St Petersburg visit with us. And of course it was special that we managed to get you last minute tickets to Mikhailovsky theatre to see world famous Swan lake ballet. Parterre/stalls seats were center located so you could see it all perfectly. Please share your positive experience and spread the word. And of course you are always welcome back!

    Fantastic St Petersburg tour
    , Jul 2019
    Excellent two day tour from start to finish. Very well organised. Clear instructions given. Maxi Balt tours rep was excellent and extremely knowledgeable. Mini bus was clean and comfortable with excellent, careful driver. In the two days we saw all of the highlights and more. Veronika as well as being knowledgeable was able to avoid all of the queues. Time keeping was excellent and we were back in plenty of time for our cruise departure. We have nothing bad to say about thus tour.

    Thank you very much for your kind words. This review is valuable to us because it talks about exact points that cruise passengers are concerned about when thinking of booking with independent tour operator. We do our best to meet our guest's high expectations. First - all our tours are visa-free, we prepare and send all necessary paperwork in order for out guests to pass Russian immigration smoothly. Schedules are being carefully tailored so that everything is being done in a comfortable pace. All museums are pre-booked and visits are pre-arranged so that time is not waisted in queues. Pre-served lunches is another factor that allows to spend more time on sites.And of course our charming guides and highly professional drivers are always ready for your visit - for you to experience our famous RUSSIAN hospitality. Please spread the word and know that you are always welcome back! Alexei
    More than we expected
    , Jul 2019
    Our tour guide Maria and driver Vlad picked us up and took us on a great 2 day adventure in St. Petersburg. Besides the usual places we also went on the subway and experienced a local super market. Maria got us into all the attractions and gave us a great narrative of the city.
