Booked this land tour for my in laws. Their cruise ship will dock at St. Petersburg for 4 days. They wanted to be able to cover St. Petersburg and Moscow in 3 days. SPB had perfect itinerary planned fully aware of the cruise ships arrival and departure schedule. I booked this particular itinerary that covers Moscow as well online many months in advance and they responded promptly and their booking was so easy and convenient and also sending reminders to us about timing for clearing immigration. The great part about this itinerary is that they still get to go back to the ship at night without incurring extra hotel accommodations even though making a trip to Moscow was abit far.

My in laws were exceptionally happy with the tour. SPB made sure guests get to see everything and even making detour back as they missed an earlier sight due to rain. They will very pleased that SPB make the tour very efficient and complete.

Have just returned from 14 day Baltic cruise and I was recommended SPB tours . Couldn't fault them from the very first email to the end. Extremely prompt and efficient in replying to any queries and all necessary information required for meeting them off the ship and docs required for sightseeing in Russia. Our guide Olga was lovely plenty of history and she organised it so that we went to the hermitage at 10am before the general public are admitted. A sit down lunch was included each day. There were only 14 of us, wouldn't want to go on a large tour that the ships run as it was extremely busy everywhere we went! We were picked up at ship terminal on 2nd day and taken to train station for our 4 hour trip to Moscow. Our driver did not leave until we were in our seats and then we met our guide in Moscow at station. Everything went smoothly was amazing to see Moscow and we were back to ship by midnight. The guides we had also in Tallin and Germany were excellent. You are always back on the ship with plenty of time to spare. So much better doing your tours with them and small groups instead of large ship tours which are very expensive.

We took a Baltic cruise in June, and wanted a private tour of St. Petersburg, Russia. I read lots of reviews of the various tour companies, and decided to use SPB Tours. We were picked up just outside of the passport control center by our driver and tour guide. We had an amazing 3 days of immersion into Russian history and culture. Both Max, our driver, and Veronica, our guide were delightful. We never had to wait in line, and Veronica explained the background and history of everything we saw. The Mercedes van was comfortable and perfect for handling the traffic of St. Petersburg. I submitted credit card information ahead of time (with some trepidation), but no problems there. We were extremely pleased with the entire tour and recommend it highly

Had the two day high light tour. Excellent tour Guide, Irina, and our driver, Igor. The entire visit was excellent and our only regret was that we didn't have more time.

Highly recommend SPB. Small group of 14, comfy bus, with water provided. Alex (guide) very knowledgeable and personable, well organised. Lunch was included both days, sampling local cuisine and ample bathroom stops. Metro ride was an added experience and worth doing, plus the canal ride.
Did this as an independent tour from a Baltic sea cruise. No problems with returning to ship at designated time, no probs with immigration as SPB organises necessary paperwork. From discussions with other cruise passengers we experienced more at a much better price.
Had the best experience in St Petersburg thanks to SPB, Alex and Alexee (driver)
