“St Petersburg superb guide and excellent travel agent”
Reviewed 25 February 2014

There are no words to express how perfect it was and I would like to start from a very beginning:)

Any of my questions were answered quickly and clearly.
Pickup was prompt from our ship. We were one of the first off and the company representative was right there, easy to find with my name on a sign. We only had one long day in port and Aventura Travel customized the tour to suit our needs. We like to cover a lot and we sure did between around 7:30am until 10:00 pm. There is no chance we could have done this on our own or with a group tour. Our guide Alexadra had unlimited energy and enthusiasm and knew her beautiful city like no one else. She was well spoken and extremely knowledgeable in all areas.
We travel often around the world and I've never had a guide like her. Yes, she was definitely our mother hen and took great care of us from bathroom stops to a wonderful lunch to making sure we got in to all museums and churches etc... with no waiting.
The driver Adrey was also good and driving smoothly with no rush to let us see all interesting sights:)

I will highly recommend them if you want to maximize your time in Russia with the best!

“Excellent travel agency and knowledgeable guide”
Reviewed 9 February 2014

I just wanted to give my feelings about the tour in St Petersburg.
We used Aventura Travel for a two day tour of St. Petersburg from our cruise ship. We were a group of four and wanted to avoid the large groups taken by cruise sponsored tours. I contacted several tour operators in St. Petersburg with our requirements and found that Aventura Travel was the most responsive and most suitable for our needs.
From a first step it started great. Our guide met us shortly after the ship docked just outside of the customs area on the pier. She took us to a mini-van, which provided ample room for the four of us.
Our first day included a tour of the city, hydrofoil ride to Peterhof, a tour of the gardens at Peterhof, drive back to St. Petersburg, visit to the Hermitage, and tour of the Church on the Splilt blood. Our guide, Maria, was extremely knowledgeable and explained everything that we were seeing as well as providing quite a bit of commentary about Russian culture during and after the Soviet area. She was also great at getting us around the sometimes long lines to enter attractions. On the second day, we toured Catherine’s Palace, a local market, took a ride on the subway (it’s definitely worth seeing), and toured the Peter and Paul Fortress. Again, Maria got us around the lines and provided excellent commentary.
I should say this tour was excellent all and this company is worth booking with!!!

“Super tour in St Petersburg”
Reviewed 12 January 2014

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.

“Private tour in St Petersburg”
Reviewed 11 January 2014

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

“Aventura Travel”
Reviewed 14 September 2013

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.
