This tour was everything we hoped it would be!
Sep 2019
In planning our Baltic Trip, we knew the two days in St. Petersburg, Russia was an event we wanted the highest value and experience. Red Sun Tours fulfilled all our expectations!

We were greeted just past customs by Elena the owner and Katya our guide who spoke perfect English. Promptly, our tour began in a private minivan driven by Igor and a detailed itinerary for the two days. My wife and I felt like diplomats passing crowded group tours at all the historic treasures and museums, royal palace homes and gardens, local culture, and our most special event, a family dinner in tasting Russian cuisine with fantastic conversation.

We want to thank Elena and Red Sun Tours for their incredible communication, comprehensive details, and personal touches to our St. Petersburg visit. We will suggest to many that they book a private tour with Red Sun Tours.

Wonderful 2days private tour in St.Petersburg and an evening ballet arranged by Elena
Jun 2019 • Couples
We were on a Baltic princess cruise June1-11,2019 and were worried about getting a Visa if We booked a private tour in St.Petersburg as warned by the Princess officials.
Elena Semenova and Igor made our 2 days in St.Petersburg comfortable,smooth and safe with a personal touch.
According to me and my wife these 2 days were the Crown of the whole trip and her arrangements were perfect and we were accompanied by another similar professional Fun loving couple from Rio.
Much cheaper and comfortable than the 30 person tour by bus offered by princess cruises..
She also could squeeze us past long queues where cruise arranged tourists had to wait.
Moreover,She changed the 5th June trip to Catherine Palace was closed to tourists as President Putin with other dignitaries were to attend.We went there on the 6th.June.
On my request Elena also arranged an evening riverboat cruise not in the original itinerary.
Unlike others,no advance payments were demanded before the evening of June 5.
My advise to other cruise guests is to blindly book your St,Petersburg trip with Red Sun Tours and enjoy your trip with the lovely owner Elena Semenova.

The best tour I have ever taken!
Jun 2019 • Couples
Through a friend I was given the name of this tour company and as we booked the cruise late I knew I needed a tour to have a Visa so I booked it. Immediately I knew I had made an excellent choice, as the emails I received were professional, helpful and timely. My expectations were fairly high and the actual tour exceeded all my expectations. We were met as soon as we got off the ship and Elena Semenova greeted us warmly. The two day private tour with Elena and our driver were the best two days of touring I have ever had in all my travels. We have been to over 20 cpu tries and St Peters urban is my favorite place of all. If you want to see everything g and have an expert guide who is as nice as can be you need to use Red Sun. All their guides and drivers are great. They are knowledgeable, friendly, as well as professional. It truly felt like we were just visiting and sightseeing will an old friend. In fact we now are thinking of planning another trip just to St Petersburg to see more and use Red Sun again. If you ever travel to Russia use this great company!

Great way to see St. Petersburg
Jul 2018 • Family
We were on a cruise and were stopping in St. Petersburg for 2 days in July 2018. Rather than take the cruise lines tours, we opted instead for Red Sun tours. They were very accommodating to set up a private tour for 4 adults and 2 kids. We were met right at the ship by a nice smiling lady who introduced us to our guide and driver. Both of them were very friendly and accommodating. The guide was very informative and showed us the sights we had requested. In the evening we had a dinner with a Russian family which was a highlight of the entire trip. Thank to Elena and her family we tried some delicious home made food and saw how a Russian family lives. The entire tour of St. Petersburg became the highlight of all our holidays and i would recommend them highly. We saw and knew so much, more than others who went on a ship tour and for less money also. If we are ever in St. Petersburg we will definitely book a tour with Red Sun Tours.
