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.
