“Did 5 of their tours!”

Anglo Tourismo Boat and Walking Tours

Attraction details
Owner description: Anglotourismo offers boat trips on rivers and canals of St.Petersburg with guidance in English as well free walking tours that run daily in English and 4 times a week in Spanish. There's also a selection of walking tours that can be booked in advance. Our main idea is going off the beaten track so if tours about Dostoevsky, Russian revolution, Stalin era or Siege of Leningrad is something you're after, phone us, email us, ask us questions and come to our walks.

Walking tours of the city were amazing. Great way to start getting to know the city, the main buildings and streets ( city free tour) as well as visiting places that are not right in the main center of the city (Petrograd walk). I highly recommend this to tourists that want to know different places within SP and don't want to get attached to a rigid schedule. The guide ( Dmitri) was great, very relaxed and transmitted his love for St Peter with interesting information and a great sense of humor. I also did the Dostoevsky's tour with Mike, which was great since he shows you all these places were the writer lived as well as the very spots were Crime and punishment took place as he kind of narrates you parts of the story. The boat tour was ok. although sometimes it was difficult to hear, but I think it´s worth it anyway since the canals and rivers give you an amazing view of the city. Finally, I did the night boat tour with Alina ( not quite sure though)...this is a MUST. The city, from the water at night is absolutely amazing, you just can't miss it!! Had a wonderful time...thanks!!!

I was a little bit worried because the sign on the booth said to make sure the Anglotourismo logo was on my ticket, which it wasnt. I didnt need to be concerned, however, because the tour was very good and the hour seemed to be over almost before it had begun. The guide explained all the sites as we passed along the canal and then into the Neva river. It was a very pleasant way to see the major sights and to be recommended.

A decent boat ride to see the mighty river Neva and to get an idea how the historical heart of the city looks like seen from the channels. The problem was that the roar of the engines of the boat overwhelmed the guide's voice when you were on the deck. And inside the cabin you heard OK, but of course couldn't get to take good pictures.
The price, 600 rub = 14+ euros/ person, a little bit so and so in price/quality ratio.

We spent about 4 1/2 hours with Mike, our bi-lingual guide, who took us by metro, bus and on foot, to a large number of sites throughout the city which took us through 3 Revolutions, ending with October 1917. Mike could not have been more informative and met every question with thoughtful answers. We felt he knew the city like the back of his hand and were thrilled to visit things it would have been hard to get to, even with a 7 day stay in the city, whether one speaks Russian or not. Mike also assisted with recommending places to eat and a couple of museums to visit later in our trip. The tour was custom-built for the family - up to 5 people can go at any one time. I would thoroughly recommend as one of the highlights of our entire visit. We also took the boat tour one evening and were able to enjoy an English speaking commentary as we explored the canals and River Neva. All very professional and a great help to non Russian speakers.

Angloturismo is the only English-speaking guided boat cruise along the canals of St Petersburg and the city portion of the Neva River. The night cruise during the "White Nights of St Petersburg" (when it gets dark at around midnight) is really something very neat to experience.

Yes, the sights are terrific with the neon lit bridges that open in different ways and the Neva River full of boats in the middle of the night, it is like a water party. The commentary on the tour is OK but on our trip the guide stopped his "guiding" half way into the trip and spent the second half standing in the front of the boat blocking the view of the first few rows of seats on that side of the boat, chatting with a couple of his friends in Russian and, to make matters worse, they were smoking and the wind was blowing the smoke into our faces.

Could have been great.
