The tour was fantastic. Michael the tour guide was excellent and worked very hard to see we had both an enjoyable and informative tour of St. Petersburg. I can't imagine a better tour.

Our TJ tour was excellent! Went to all the places listed with most tours- we thought the Hermitage, Peterhof Park and Catherin's palace were the best parts, although all are crowded. Our guide Alex couldn’t have been better- she is fabulous! We appreciated her calm and cheerful patience since we were on a day that passport control inexplicably decided to make everyone wait 2 hours to get through. We fretted as to whether the tour would really wait, but obviously when they said they would wait, they meant it. Alex was completely knowledgeable and has very good English. She was kind enough to get “her boss” to agree that we could start the tour an hour earlier the next day since we missed out on part of it the first day. That was really nice because it certainly wasn’t TJ’s fault that we were so delayed. Alex was great at getting us through the various crowded places, and rearranged the order of sites as needed- going to Catherine’s Palace first thing the second day seemed to really pay off because we essentially walked right in and saw the very long line to get in on our way out. Alex kept the group together, accommodated an older couple who had some trouble paying attention to staying with the group, and was so pleasant to spend our 2 days with. We couldn’t have asked for a better tour than we had. The listening equipment really helps, too, because it allows you to not have to stand close to her in very crowded situations to hear, but you don’t miss a thing. The group size of 16 also seemed to be a big asset in crowded places like the Hermitage where the big groups had to spend time gathering everyone together. Also the van had the best wifi of anywhere we were the entire cruise!

We also used TJ in Tallinn and Helsinki. Tour guide Hanna in Tallinn was great- grew up speaking English although he lives in Tallinn and led an excellent tour. Helsinki was our least favorite- tour guide was not as good as the other two.

Booked 2 day shore excursion with TJ - amazing company very well run! Small group, wonderful driver, tour guide and great van. Did it all! Subway, hydrofoil, canal boat, Hermitage, Amber Room, Peterhof Island, Church of Spilled Blood, all the main sites, including 2 authentic Russian lunch stops that were yummy plus markets. Amazing 2 full days with incredible guide and driver. Highly recommend!

My husband and I spent 3 wonderful days in St. Petersburg on a Silversea Baltics cruise. On the advice of our travel agent, we booked a 2 day private tour with TJ Travel rather than use the ships private guides. We could not have been happier with our guide, Nadia, and our driver, Renat. In advance, we planned our agenda so that it was tailored to exactly what we wanted. Nadia and Renat were so professional but yet warm and welcoming like old friends would be. They made our trip so memorable and enjoyable...can't say enough about them! Because of these 2 individuals, we would use TJ Travel for any future private tours. We did hear from some other cruise passengers that used the ships private guides and were very unhappy with the quality and experience of their guide. Private tours are expensive and the last thing you would want is to have a very young, inexperienced guide. Thank you, Nadia and Renat, for creating wonderful memories for us!

All of the S.P. tours have pretty much flawless feedback.... so much so that I was pretty suspicious of the ratings. We ended up choosing TJ for a coupe of reasons-- first, because of their super communication. Second, because they did not require a deposit in advance. (which is a great leap of faith, on their part) Constantime was our guide, and he was the perfect blend of facts and humor. He kept things moving along so that we saw everything we wanted to see. Everything has been said here before... we enjoyed our 2 days in St. Petersburg very much.

We used them from our cruise ship, and everything went perfectly smoothly when we arrived in Russia.
