Owner description: Lentina Travel Company is a fully authorized tour operator in St. Petersburg (license #MBT006361) established by a tour guide in 2010. We organize various guided private and group tours of this marvelous city and its suburbs, ranging from VIP tours to low-budget programs. We want everyone to appreciate the beauty, splendor and unique atmosphere of St. Petersburg, that is why we offer flat-rate tours for small groups of 6 persons at low rates. Trust us, there is a difference between a tour in a group of 6 persons vs the group of 16 pax. We believe 6 pax is the optimal group size, everyone gets a front-row experience, no one gets in the back of the group or lost. Make the most of your time in marvelous St. Petersburg with us! We'll help you see the city through our eyes and we are sure you'll fall in love with it and want to come back again and again!

We did the Top-5 tour offered by Lentina Travel which covered all the major attractions. The tour was the highlight of our cruise thanks to Stanislava and Danya, her very safe driver. Stanislava is a very well educated young lady with excellent English, extensive subject and location knowledge, and a great personality.
We were able to modify our itinerary to suit conditions - for instance we started with the inside tour of the Palace at Peterhof where Stanislava had organised early entry before the cruise tour buses arrived. Peterhof is mind boggling and not to be missed. At our request the Tour was modified to include a subway journey and nothing was too much trouble.
On both days Stanislava joined us for lunch (at our request) and we ate at local interesting cafes where Stanislava was able to educate us on the local fare. Linch costs were around $10 each and I even got a traditional shot of vodka after my meal at one place.
From a safety viewpoint we never felt out of our comfort zone.
You could spend days at places like the Hermitage, Winter Palace and the various other attractions on the tour. Being a small group we were able to get the most out of our time in St Petersburg and Stanislava was most adaptable to our requests. With the number of cruise ships in port it was important to avoid the large number of tourists on bus tours.
We were met each day as soon as we passed trough the customs area and returned to the cruise ship on time.
We can be described as a "mature couple" from Australia, and we have no hestiation in recommending Stanislavas' Lentina Tours and in particular this two day tour.

We, a family of 6, visited St. Petersburg for a day on 13 May, 2014 as part of our Baltic Cruise. We used Lentina's services which were very good and satisfying. Stanislava herself picked us up at the port at 9 am in a confortable 6 seater a.c. van and the tour was conducted precisely as per the agreed itinerary. Since Lentina is a registered tour operator, we could do away with the requirement of obtaining a Russian visa. Also we found that her charges for the tour were much more economical than the other tour operators and those offered by the cruiseline, in this case Royal Carribean. I will strongly recommend Lentina.

Booking a private tour with Lentina travel was the BEST part or our Baltic cruise! Stanislava was very responsive prior to the tour and waiting for us when we arrived. Our guide, Katya, was wonderful - so informative with excellent language skills. We saw everything that was offered on all the ship tours because we were able to enjoy a private car and early admissions. I would recommend this company to anyone visiting St. Petersburg.

would like to let you know that the service we got from lentina Travel was 1st class in every aspect.
We were a bit apprehensive having heard some bad stories about dubious private travel companies. We needn't have worried though. The comprehensive list that we gave was accomodated without a hitch. Katia our tour guide was excellent, giving us a full comentary on the way to the attractions, then even more information as we walked around. She was very knowledgable about the city and everything in it. Alexander our driver was very helpful and polite also and a very good driver. The cost was very competative, talking to other guests on the cruise they paid a lot more and saw a lot less. they were quite jealous. I recommend anyone who is visiting your beautiful city to use your company, it was completely hassle free.

By booking a trip with Lentina in St Petersburg, not only do you get first-class service but you also avoid the complexity of obtaining a Russian visa. We used this company when our cruise liner berthed in St Petersburg for a 2-hour tour of the Hermitage and the guide, who spoke excellent English, took us to see the most interesting and exciting exhibits within the time allotted. We had a personal driver who was waiting at the dock and which, if you have ever visited St Petersburg, was a blessing as he managed to avoid most of the usual traffic jams. The company will tailor your visit according to need - from our 2-hour visit to the Hermitage to an all-day tour around the city. I can;t praise them enough.
