Having previously visited St Petersburg we wanted a more relaxed tour to see the most important landmarks. We found the itinerary offered by Ludmilla to full fill our wishes and with only a coach of ten travellers the guide and driver were very helpful. Being a small group we managed to have express access to sites. On the first day went on the metro before proceeding to Peterhof Palace fountains we were in time for the start of the programme and music We then had an included lunch in a restaurant near the fountains before visiting St Catherine's Palace The following day we did the canal cruise and visited the Hermitage and another lunch nearby(not included) Church of the Split blood before returning to the ship
I can't say enough about this tour. We had 2 PACKED days in St. Petersburg. Saw many palaces, churches, museums, subway, beautiful fountains, and more. We had a different guide on each day and both were excellent. We also got to experience a Russian lunch on each day. Our van held 13 people which was so much nicer than a big bus. Easy to get in and out. No waiting in lines anywhere! Overall, a great experience!
We were on a Baltic Cruise in May/June 2019. Having booked many tours with Viator I was interested in their 2 day tour of St. Petersburg. What a great experience. We were met at the pier once we cleared customs. We had 2 full days of touring. Our guide was most knowledgeable and we learned a lot, not only about St. Petersburg, but also about Russia. We also enjoyed a local meal. We were a small group in a min-van so had the opportunity to interact with fellow travellers. I would be remiss if I did not mention that we had a very professional driver who appeared to enjoy his work. I highly recommend this tour.
Easy pick up at the ship after we cleared customs Eugenia was waiting. She was excellent in her historical knowledge but wove in anecdotal info as well. Her English was excellent and it was a pleasure hearing how she and her family live. Our driver Serge wove through the traffic well. Covered a lot of ground but were so happy to see so much in 2 days
We enjoyed 2 great days with very friendly staff, especially Tatiana! The palaces were amazing and we didn’t have to wait in huge line ups as we were with a tour. We also saved on the cost of a Russian Visa . We felt very safe at all times and would highly recommend Viator to get a great taste of Saint Petersburg! Thank-you so much!
Prior to visiting St. Petersburg I began a search for who we would use for our tours. In all I found about five or six companies in St.Petersburg all of which had good reviews and fairly comparable prices for what we were wanting. Ludmila Tours was one of them. I sent emails to all companies directly and as emails were exchanged with different people, I got a sense of honesty and genuine concern from Ludmila to make our visit memorable. Other operators were very good in their presentations and offers, some were a little 'pushy' to get us to sign up with them; many made a point that they were the 'largest' or offered more tours to more people than any others and so on. Fortunately, we realized what an honest person Ludmila was and booked her tour on Viator. As for guides we could have been given, we certainly must have had the absolute best in all of Russia. Inna was a delightful person, was willing to adjust and schedule things to our wishes, easy to talk with and understand. She was very knowledgeable and kept things moving along smoothly for both days we had her. She was the one that really made the trip so special. The driver Vladimir was equally good at his responsibility of maneuvering throughout the city in the best and quickest routes. The vehicle was very clean and comfortable and the driver stayed close to it when we were touring so there was never a worry about the safety of things left on the bus. The meals we had arranged for us were very well priced and enjoyable - very clean restaurants with excellent service. The potentially negative part was large crowds in the Hermitage and Catherine's Palace, but somehow Inna was able to avoid all the lines and easily get all 15 members of our group through the crowd. The smallest details were all taken care of. This was definitely five star service and I'd have no hesitation to book with this company again.
My husband and I booked this tour for our visit to St. Petersburg. Once we processed through customs at the cruise port, we easily found the tour operators waiting for us. The two days were well organized, Anna was our guide, she spoke English fluently, had in-depth knowledge of every location we visited during our two day visit. The tour was exceptional, the locations amazing, St. Petersburg a highlight of the many cities we visited. We were so pleased that we chose this small group tour through Viator. In the future we will look at small group tours vs cruise ship tours....there is no comparison. Thank you Anna for a fantastic time!
