The cruise ship tried to put you off booking outside trip but it was easy and far less cost. Met once we cleared immigration our group was 12 in a small Coach with a guide and driver. Fully packed days taking in all key sites, included 3 course lunch in price on one day. Guild was fab very informative and small group was great. Tour also include boat trip. I would highly recommend this trip.

Fantastic 2 days tour

Our guide Oleg from Ventura was amazing 6 out of 5. Just the right pace and just the right amount of information. St Petersburg is magnificent and the tour covered so much of it as well as Peterhoff. Russian lunch was a bonus. Don't think twice, Just book it. October is very cool but the que and crowds are so much smaller. No que at the Heritage was a miracle.

The guide was late on the 2nd day, we need to stand in the strong wind. The tour was nothing special. But the lunch included in the 1st day was good. Nice restaurant.

Pros Guide (Oleg) was almost perfect! Very knowledgeable of Russian history, polite, very resourceful, punctual and well organized with the tour schedule. Tour was well priced, we were very pleased with the sites we visited and van was comfortable.. Con Only one!! We didn't have enough time to have lunch on the second day; schedule was a little tight Maybe, tour can include packed lunch ( like sandwich and drink) that can be eaten while in the boat ride? Everyone complained about almost skipping lunch the second day. I thought this was worth mentioning Otherwise, everyone was happy with the tour, highly recommended.

Fantastic tour . Hard to see how anymore could be crammed in . Fast paced but never rushed . Day one is the busy day with a lot on the agenda . Day two slightly less but just as enjoyable . Our guide Oleg was outstanding . Informative , friendly and the patience of a saint !! Nothing too much trouble for him and took the time to answer all questions fully . Typical Russian lunch provided on day one . Basic but tasty and more than adequate . No lunch on day two but Oleg gave us directions and recommendations for local cafes etc . The one our party tried was very good . These cafes are in the area of the boat trips which is the last leg of the tour . For the price and what's included this is highly recommended . We were on a Baltic cruise and St Petersburg was definitely the highlight of all our ports of call .

Absolutely brilliant tour

We were visiting St Petersburg by cruise ship, and needed a good tour as an alternative to the cruise line offerings. This tour turned out to be brilliant, covering all the most important sights of St Petersburg over two days at half the cost that our cruise ship wanted to charge. Our guide Olga was excellent, knowledgeable and patient, and best of all it was a small group, which was much more fun than a big tour. Could not recommend more highly.

ARROGANT TOUR GUIDE

, Aug 2019
The tour has the usual, good destinations. Traveling from destinations to destinations was efficient and on schedule. The one BIG NEGATIVE was the tour guide, Polina, who was arrogant and ignored questions. Even when she did responded, she show disdain with her facial expression and waited at least few seconds before reluctantly gave a short response. She also provided minimum amount of information. The tour destinations were fine and driver was good.

Good usage of time in Russia

Had major issues getting trip advisor to find a company who could deliver on a tour to Saint Petersburg. The 1st two were confirmed then canceled due to day visa being unable to be completed in time. This company aventura, was cheaper and did an excellent job of delivering on a fun, fully packed agenda over 2 days. Daria and Denis were our guide and driver. They were both very pleasant and knowledgeable. I am very happy with their service and ability to navigate the lines and busy traffic conditions.

We are so sorry we cannot remember the name if our guide. Visiting so many places over 2 months we have lost her name. We had the most outstanding guide in such an amazing city. We got real value for money. Our guide went the extra mile to ensure we were happy and got the best experience. Thank you.

2 Day Aventura St Petersburg tour
gmcclaren

We took the 2 day tour in St Petersburg Russia. Our guide was Paula with Aventura Travel via Viator. It was a very full 2 days. Paula kept our tour moving and kept all 16 guests on time. Paula has so much knowledge of the area, as well as her own personal experience. The value of our tour was much better than the Cruise ship tour, and the quality was very good. A little larger van would have made the trip even better.

We had Polina as our tour guide. She is extremely experienced in this. She got us around in front of all the big groups - mainly chinese tourists and let us see everything at a good speed but not in a rushed manner. The only bad thing was the lunch. It was very poor to say the least. Food bad and their didn't seem to be anyone around who spoke any english to explain what we were getting etc. I would rather have forgone this and got to see a metro station which was the only thing that I felt that I had missed out on in St Petersburg. Its a great place and it would be impossible to see all we saw in two days if you weren't on a tour like this. Obviously it is great as the visa is not required which makes it a no brainer to do this really.

Our tour of St. Petersburg was fantastic and we cannot speak highly enough of our guide Pauline. She is extremely knowledgeable, friendly and was absolutely determined to give us a tour that we hoped for. I can't believe how much we saw and experienced in our two days there. The canal cruise was a wonderful part of the tour as was everything we saw. Our drivers were also excellent and friendly,. The included lunch on the tour was very good and in a nice restaurant. It was far better than what was offered by the ship. One thing, however, be prepared to walk... alot! There is so much to see on this particular tour. We highly recommend the tour and Viatour to anyone considering a trip there... and Pauline, if you are reading this, Clare, Frank and I thank you for a wonderful experience!

We were in St. Petersburg for 2 days on Aug 15 and 16 and visited the church of spilled blood,hermitage museum, Peterhof palace and gardens,Catherine's palace, and the fortress of Peter and Paul, and enjoyed a boat tour through the canals. The tour company was Aventura Travel and our guide was Paulina. I have been with guides all over the world and was totally impressed with Paulina. She was professional and personable and her knowledge of the history of the locations we visited was exceptional. She was able to guide us through the crowds skillfully without ever making us feel rushed. We were provided with a portable unit with earpieces that allowed us to to explore while listening to the commentary.An exceptional tour which I highly recommend.
