Amazing trips to Peterhof, Pushkin and a city tour
Found this company on an internet search and love them. My 1st visit to Russia and only have a couple of days. Booked Pushkin, Peterhof and a city tour. All 3 were great.
Picked up at my hotel and dropped off which is awesome. It was just me and the guide each time. They spoke amazing English.
I cant even decide which trip was best. They were all great. I’m a total WW2 geek and my guide pointed out lots of really interesting places along the way.
Will be back in May with family so have said to my mum she needs to book several tours. Highly recommend.
We are glad that we booked the group tour through Grandpetersbourg. Julia was very patient to answer my questions and explain the tour details. The tour cost is reasonable. Our tour guide Lydia is a very nice beautiful Russian girl. She is knowledgeable, kind and considerate. All our group members ( 9 people) like her.
We give Grandpetersbourg a 5 star and will refer to our friends.
August 18-19, 2017 St. Petersburg
We, a group of 8 seniors from California had a private tour of St. Petersburg for two full days. Our guide, Lidia, was very knowledgeable, professional and caring. Besides enjoying the lovely city, we learned so much of the history of St. Petersburg. We had a jammed pack itinerary. We were fascinated and yet did not want to stop for fear of missing out on important scenes. Our driver, Slava, though speak little English, cared for us every step of the way. They performed their job well and treated us as family members. I would highly recommend Grand Petersburg as a first rate tour company and its our guides are truly outstanding. outstanding.
“Three lovely days”, June 5-7,2017
Though I’m an old hand in St. Petersburg I’m not good with historical overviews, so I hired this company to guide Four dear friends of mine to the Hermitage, Peterhoff and on a long Canal ride with a guide. Julia was my contact, and she was easy and agreeable to organize details. Each event went as planned, and the boats, drivers and guides were friendly, knowledgeable and well organized. We enjoyed the experience. I would use Julia’s organization again. Our guides were Julia, Anna and Elena.
“Enlightened visit to St. Petersburg May 6-7, 2017”
Four of us cruised the Regal Princess which docked at St Petersburg overnight. We booked GrandPetersburg for a two day tour. Our guide was Julia and the driver was Slava. The schedule for the 2 day was well managed and we were able to see the main attractions of the city. Julia is well versed in Russian history and culture and we enjoyed her narration. She arranged an early entrance to the Hermitage Museum before its opening to avoid the queue. For every room in the Museum, she pointed out its high lights, otherwise we would be lost in the vast space and collections. For every palace and cathedral, she brought our attention to its significance. She was extremely flexible to accommodate our requests for a canal ride so we could see the city from a different view; a ride in the underground train (subway) to see Soviet architecture rather than just those of the tsar eras; the market place to see Russian produce and daily life of local people. Although this is our second visit to St. Petersburg, this tour has been very enlightened.
GrandPetersburg is a small company but not without its uniqueness. The tour group is small. We had 6 in our group. Unlike the mass mainstream tours, nobody was left behind; we received personal attention and we were able to hear the guide and ask questions.
Slava was very thoughtful and he dropped us off and picked us up at the closest proximity, sparing us from much walking. He also provided us with umbrellas when it was raining.
One suggestion for Julia is when planning your next similar tour you should include some time for lunch. On our second day the schedule was tight. The first visit was the Hermitage Museum followed by the canal ride. We could bring our lunch to eat on the canal boat.
Thank you for making St. Petersburg the highlight of our cruise ports. Your souvenir will be a good memory of our visit.
