Last July we (a group of six people) were on SPB two-day “St. Petersburg Deluxe Tour” and “Stockholm Highlights from Nyashamn” tours. We were very happy with what SPB offered us: - Greater value compared to cruise ship operated on-shore excursions - Small group with a maximum of 16 people per bus (less waiting time for loading/unloading, lunch, and washroom...

I booked a shore excursion for my husband and myself. None of the excursions offered by RCCL included all of the sights we wanted to see in the one day the ship stopped in Saint Petersburg. I did research on TA and then I found a group on Cruise Critic from our boat who had booked a tour with this... More

We had the 2 days' St Petersburg excursion with SPB tours, it's worth every single penny of it! The tour guide is considerate, and knowledge with fluent English. There were about 10-12 people in the minivan, much less than the cruise's big bus. They brought the bottled water for us and the driver provided WiFi hot spot during the ride.... More

This review is long overdue but I cannot forget the wonderful staff, guides , and drivers from Spb tours using them for every tour available for excursions for my Baltic cruise. I took their tours Oslo, Helsinki, Copenhagen, Estonia but the most memorable was the 2. Day extensive tour in St. Petersburg with an additional night tour to the Fabrege... More

Guide was great.....most helpful and lots of explanation and personal comments. Communication with the company was great and they kept us up to date on developments, weather, etc. Lots of good travel recommendations in preparation for our tour!

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
