Our 2 day guide was Daria, she took the charge of the group and helped us greatly to avoid crowds in the museums. Same time not rushed. Daria was full of interesting information yet did not give us lecture. The places we visited were awesome the price of the tour also Great. Minibus was comfortable and again the guide was the best!!

I booked this trip on May 2020 and than changed my plans to travel in September due to the pandemic. Sadly the trip still had to be canceled. I want to express my gratitude to Daria and Elena from City Break Tours who assisted in amending my reservation and than helped to refund it. It was a pleasant experience.

I meant to write a review after our trip but got busy. This was by far the best tour I’ve been on. Our tour guide was very sweet, very accommodating and knowledgeable. The history in Russia is very rich and our tour guide answer all our questions and was very patient with the group. I wish they offer other tours in other countries. I highly recommended to book the 2 day tour with this company. The driver and tour guide were waiting for us just outside of customs at St. Petersburg port. We were greeted by both of them and rode a Nice Mercedes van that fit 10 people comfortably, has WiFi and AC.

I want to thank City Break Tours for their fast reaction refunding the money for the tour I had to cancel due to the pandemic. It was very easy to deal with you and I am looking forward to 2021 when hopefully we will be able to travel safely again. I will surely book with you in the future.

Our tour and the itinerary was excellent. Victoria our tour guide was more than organized, helpful and attentive. We saw way more than we expected and still I have a feeling we just scratched the surface. There is much more to see and do in this fabulous city. The price was much better than the ship's tour and the meals were included. Should we ever return to the Baltic Sea area we would definitely engage with City Break Tours again.

We bought a tour for a mid-June cruise that we had to cancel. I emailed City Break and had a response the next day and a refund to my account. In booking this travel, they were very responsive to my initial inquiries and I do plan to rebook both the cruise and this tour next summer.

Thanks so much, City Break.

I want to say thanks to City Break Tours for their professional and quick response. I had a shore excursion booked in St Petersburg with them and sadly had to cancel due to COVID-19. Once I sent them a message they replied with very kind words and proceeded with a full refund. I am looking forward to having a future tour with City Break when traveling is safe again.

We were absolutely 100% satisfied with this tour. Our guide, Anna, was beyond amazing and thorough! We were on a Baltic cruise and everyone told us we should be careful about taking a non-cruise tour of St. Petersburg due to us needing a Visa to tour on our own. Well, City Break tours took care of it all and we had a fabulous 2-day tour with Anna.

We had 15 on our tour --- a much more manageable number than the 45 people being hauled around by the cruise tours. We had the ability to ask questions and get a first-hand look into the Russian lifestyle.

City Break Tours picked us up at the cruise terminal and dropped us off in a very timely manner. We felt like we were in good, responsible hands the entire time we were touring with Anna. She is conscientious, extremely knowledgeable on Russian history and had an amazing amount of information to share at the Hermitage and Faberge Museums along with every other venue we visited.

I cannot rave enough about this tour and Anna. This is only the second review I've done for Viator / Trip Advisor but because this tour went above and beyond, I felt compelled to relieve any hesitation anyone might have in taking a tour on your own. It is well worth the money and time to be able to see St. Petersburg in this manner. Bravo to City Tours and Anna!!

This tour is half the price of what the cruise ship offers but the quality is absolutely top-notch. We got to see everything listed in their published itinerary and it was really skip-the-lines for Hermitage museum, Faberge museum, and Catherine Palace. Without joining this tour, there was no way we could see so many things in 2 days. There were very long queues for Hermitage museum and Catherine Palace but we got to skip them all. For Catherine Palace, not only did we skip the line but the route we used in the Palace is separated from other visitors. It seemed like we have a designated "private" route for our visit. Especially in the amber room, our designated route was physically closer to the amber decorations compared to other general visitors' route.
We had Elena as our guide, she is very sweet and professional. She is very patience in answering everyone's questions. We were all very happy to have her as our guide.
If we will ever visit St. Petersburg again, we will join City Break Tours without any hesitation.
