Perfect organization. They picked us up from the hotel after an email the day before, we were six. Very comfortable bus the guide really prepared as well as nice. The historian of St. Petersburg explained us very well both outward and return. The beautiful palace appreciated even more with the guide without queuing. Beautiful ride outside. Congratulations and good.

great, everything was fine

Pick up at the hotel super on time. Driver very nice, car super clean, well-kept driving style. Our tour guide already gave us a lot of good information about St. Petersburg today and in the past. No queues at the palace. The Palatführung great, so well-founded knowledge and attention to detail. We also enjoyed the subsequent walk through the park. And all in really good German, respect. We enjoyed it from the first to the last minute.

Very good organization and great guide

We were picked up on time by the guide and driver in our hotel. The tour started on the way (St. Petersburg). When we got to the Catherine Palace we didn't have to wait. Our guide was very competent, committed and spoke German very well. Our driver brought us back to the hotel safely after 5 hours.
