A very long drive for a rather rushed tour. Schwerin Castle was interesting but it was a long way to drive just for lunch and a castle visit.
Loved St Petersburg but would only do it with a private guide because it saves so much time and you get to see and do and learn so much more. Tallinn was a lovely old city and any of the ships excursions offered there would be fine. Berlin was interesting but it was a very long drive from the port. We might have liked this better with a private guide. So many buildings were behind scaffolding or being repaired it was hard to discern any charm and there really isn't any "old town" in Berlin thanks to WW II
Copenhagen was a pleasant surprise; very interesting and colorful but incredibly expensive. Their 25%vat is a killer especially on top of already high prices.
A half day tour is plenty to see the major sights in this city. The Design Museum was offered and we probably would have enjoyed that more than the city tour. But we saw the highlights and that was sufficient. This is not a very exciting city.
Half day tour was plenty of time in this port. The church was interesting but only took a few minutes to see and enjoy.
Absolutely unbelievable! Gorgeous!
A beautiful, clean and impressive city
Unbelievable!!! Beautiful!! Impressive!! Fabulous!!!!
A great perspective of the city from the river. a very enjoyable hour
A must see
Don't miss this one
As a former travel agency owner with 20 years experience in group travel and tour operators I know a good tour company and good guides. Alex's Tour & Travel is SUPERB! Alex arranged 3 entire days for us and there was not a single misstep or problem. We saw everything as promised, with personalized service, flexibility, fun and had the most knowledgeable and amazing guide! Everything was perfect and beyond our expectations. Our group left the city with greater knowledge of and a deeper appreciation for the city than we ever could have acquired as part of a large group on a motorcoach. All the pre trip planning and communication was extremely timely and responsive. I can't imagine seeing St Petersburg any other way. And our 3 day tour with private guide and car/driver was no more expensive than the 3 day tour offered by the cruise line! Don't let the company name fool you; Alex's Tour & Travel is THE BEST.
Lovely, especially from the outside but not as outstanding as other churches in the area
Very touristy but fun. An experience that probably won't be repeated.
The Old town was interesting and colorful but wasn't overwhelmed. I think a half say here is adequate. We probably should have gone to the Vasa Museum that many others really liked.
