We booked the tour with Aventura Travel and it really exceeded our expectations. In Saint Petersburg we got the incomparable Katya as our guide. I’m sure she’s done these sites many, many times, but you wouldn’t know it. Her enthusiasm never flagged, and she was constantly watching us to see what we were most interested in. She effortlessly (it seemed) timed everything so that we didn’t feel rushed, yet saw all that we hoped to-and more! The practicalities on both days were taken care of (bathroom breaks, lunch break) without any major disruption to the flow of the day. The pace was just right so that we could catch our breaths and really take in what we were seeing, yet we were never just waiting around. We really enjoyed the details that she shared of her life, in fact, later we all agreed that Katya seemed more like a friend than just our guide. Her gentle sense of humour and sparkling eyes kept us all engaged when we began to get tired. I have to say that seeing St. Petersburg with Katya was one of the highlights of my life.
The drivers was excellent and the vehicle was very comfortable.
We took private tour for stop on our trip, and Aventura Travel stands out from the others for so many reasons. The professionalism and patience and attention to detail was so re-assuring when I was first gathering information. Also, my emails were answered quickly considering the time difference. It was apparent that the details were all looked after, and we truly could just enjoy and savour every moment. And then Stanislav Acurio checked with our group at the end of our St. Petersburg tour for any feedback-how nice! These tours exceeded our expectations in all ways!
