Can't say enough about how professional and thorough SPB was. They guided all the way step by step before and after we arrived in St. Petersburg. You can not go wrong with this tour company.

The two day tour of St Petersberg was particularly impressive. Our tour guide spoke perfect English and was knowledgeable on all aspects of Russian life including history and architecture. The tour consisted of a small group of 16 and personal audio receivers meant that the guide could be clearly heard even when we were in crowded museums. There was a... More

My wife and I went on a two-day tour through St. Petersburg. Our guide was Elena SK. She was extremely knowledgeable, kind, considerate, and had a great sense of Russian humor. The places we visited were amazing. She brought the history to life. In fact, when all the tours took a boat ride through the canals, she was the guide... More

Vika and the staff at SPB Tours provide an amazing in-depth experience when visiting St. Petersburg. The guide, Val, was exceptional. He was very knowledgeable and patient with some of the slower moving guests in my group. The 2 day itinerary was planned perfectly down to the times we visited the different attractions when the crowds were not bad.

Arrived in St. Petersburg in September 2016 on the "Koningsdam". Was a little apprehensive being on a bus for approximately 8 hours for two days, but once we got going, it was great and being on a smaller bus was so much better. We had a wonderfully informative hostess who was very patient with those who dragged their heels a... More

Excellent tours. Our guides were great and spoke excellent English. My husband and I were impressed that they split up the Asians from the English speaking group. We each had a guide who spoke our language. Everyone was impressed with that. We all had a good time. When we talk about our trip to other people, we tell them about... More

Heading to St. Petersburg on a cruise next Spring or Summer? Then book NOW with SPB Tours. Don’t even consider going with anyone else. Their two day “Deluxe Tour” is fantastic! We took this tour in early May, 2016. The tour is a very full two days. The itinerary of sites listed on SPB’s website doesn’t really capture the full... More

As an experienced traveler, I have seen a wide range of tours. SPB is tops. Their van is optimal size for the attractions, their guides are knowledgeable, and the cost is less than the cruise ship excursion.
