We were two couples on a Baltic cruise which included three days in St. Petersburg, Russia. I booked the cruise with Red October as a result of reviews in Trip Advisor and we were not disappointed.
We arranged the tour with Mike Finn in the United States and everything fell into place without a hitch. Great information provided beforehand and no problem leaving the ship (in spite of what the cruise lines tell you about visas, e.tc) and our guide, Elena, was waiting on the pier.
Elena, a university English professor, is wonderful. Her knowledge and especially her passio, for the sights and sounds of St. Petersburg are incredible. She really makes the extraordinary sights come alive.
What an enjoyable three day experience! We would highly recommend Red October to anyone wanting to participate in an informative tour of this delightful city. We went on this cruise because we always wanted to visit St. Petersburg. With Elena and Red October, we were well rewarded.
