We've just returned from our trip and used Aventura Travel for the 2 day package and had a wonderful time. It rained on the 2nd day and Alexander our guide made sure we did not get wet by hanging around waiting for our transport at destinations, nor did we have to queue. We have nothing but praise for him and the driver Andrey, and would certainly use them again. St Petersburg is wonderful and we will go back again one day and will again use a Russian tour company, Aventura Travel for preference, without doubt.

Me and my wife were most fortunate to have discovered Aventura Travel online and booked for a personal 3 day tour of Saint Petersburg and the environs in December 2013. From the moment we met the guide Catherine at the airport we were made to feel welcome and protected by a knowledgeable and charming hostess. Catherine was fun, witty, fluent in colloquial English. She knew her history, the ins and outs of the attractions and was able to shuffle our itinerary when the weather created an obstacle. I cannot fault anything about the experience. We felt a personal bond when we finished our trip and have continued to correspond with her since then. We have never done that with another guide until then. We both heartily endorse Catherine and wish her the best!!!
The Manager Maria was just great, she selected our hotels, our restaurants, and our itinerary. She was just professional. I would highly recommend this company and the service was GREAT!!! Thank you Aventura Travel

Three of us organised a private two day tour of St Petersburg with Aventura Travel. The tour covered all the main attractions and maximised our short amount of time. Katya was our guide and she did a wonderful job. She has excellent knowledge of her city but was also conscious of what most interested our group.

One of our group became ill and Katya was wonderful in working out options so that the sick person could see some of the sights. Aventura was flexible and very considerate in how they handled this situation.

We were very impressed with the itinerary and the arrangements which all worked to plan. However the response in making changes to accommodate our needs because of illness was impressive. We would definitely use Aventura again and would recommend this tour company to others.

We booked a tour with Aventura Travel for the last day of our cruise and it was PERFECTLY organized from the beginning to the end! Maria from the office was really helpful and very precisely answered all of my questions concerning visa, payment, etc. She sent us all the documents we needed and we didn't have any problems going through customs at the pier. Our guide, Stanislav, was a very captivating speaker and told us not only historical facts, but also interesting details about the life of Russian people. He had perfectly planned and timed everything and he was really patient. We had one truly unforgettable day in this magnificent city and I highly recommend this company to anyone visiting St.Petersburg.

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!
