Everyone says "you can't do St. Petersburg in a wheelchair." It's true we rarely saw any tourists in a wheelchair. So we decided to take the deluxe 3-day tour so that we could get extra help and no slow others down. Andrey was the best ever driver and it was his personal

Dear Kathleen, I'm so happy to read your positive review regarding the 3-Day Deluxe Tour you took with us. :) You're right! Being a wheelchair user and taking a tour in St. Petersburg is sometimes challenging, as some of the sights don't allow wheelchair users inside, or even restrict the type of wheelchair allowed. However, our team in St. Petersburg knows all of these tricks to make sure everyone have an amazing time in the city. I'm glad they were able to provide your group with this experience too. :) If you ever decide to come back to the Baltic, it would be a pleasure to have you touring with us again. King regards, Andrea SPB-Tours
