“Knowledgeable, friendly and helpful guides”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 April 2014

As a first time visitor to Russia, speaking no Russian and travelling on my own, I found that the two guides - Irina and Maria - were both knowledgeable about the history of St Petersburg and Russia and about the art. Alexander was a careful and courteous driver. Both the guides spoke excellent English and made sure that I had a very enjoyable weekend in their beautiful city. The private tour was excellent and I will use White Nights again if I get the opportunity to return.

We often talk about our holiday time in St Pete organized by White Nights last spring. We have told many, many, many people how professional and caring they were before, during and after our visit. We also were telling our friends how we managed to see so much with Katja and Alexander. Katja was so patient when my mother was slower to walk since she got tired more quickly.
All things considered, we had a spectacular time with this company and got excellent customer service.

“Excellent Tour and Education”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 October 2013

My wife and I were on Celebrity Eclipse in August with a 2 day stop in St. Petersburg. We selected White Nights as our private tour. We were outside the terminal a few minutes before the departure time, and did not see the car. We called and were told that it would be there in a few minutes. And it was. We met Alexander, our driver and Dasha, our tour guide. We spent two days with both of them and also had Alexander drive us to the ballet in the evening. The experience was magnificent. Dasha is a university professor in the winter, and tour guide in the summer. She was extremely knowledgable and provided many details, including rumors and other interesting facts about the history of St. Petersburg and Russian rules. Dasha was also very organized and was able to get us around all of the crowds everywhere we went. We were very impressed and pleased that she was also very willing to discuss recent Russian history, the collapse of the Soviet Union, and current politics. It was a real eye-opener for us.

You will not be disappointed if you use White Nights for your tour.

“St Petersburg in a Day”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 September 2013

We had only one day to try to see St. Petersburg. We knew that our cruise line tour would include a large number of people and therefore be very limited in how much they could cover. So we booked the Silver Tour with White NIghts for the 6 of us traveling together. Natalie was fantastic! She took great care of us from start to finish. She was very informative, knew how to get us through the crowds, and even had the patience to take pictures of us when we asked. White Nights was able to customize our tour to the hours we were in port and still get in visits to all the places we wanted to see. Our driver was also so pleasant and entertaining. They provided bottles of water throughout the day, but the only thing that we were not prepared for was that there was NO time to stop for food. Be sure to take along some snacks to eat while driving around. I would highly recommend this tour for anyone going to St. Petersburg!

“Must Do in St Petersburg”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 September 2013

We had a fantastic tour with White Knights to Peterhof and to St Catherine's Palace.
This tour was arranged weeks before we arrived in Russia and was adapted to fit our time schedule. Their communication via email was fantastic where they were quick to sort out a time schedule for the day and pricing. The price of the tour was very reasonable seeing there was only two of us having an exclusive guided tour by a very efficient and well spoken guide in English.
I have no hesitation recommending this company for a tour in Russia.
Thank you so much for a memorable day.
