St. Petersburg Neva River Cruise Excursion Reviews
Could not hear the guide over the static
A great perspective of the city from the river. a very enjoyable hour
comfortable, efficient, fun.
The river cruise gives a really good overview of St. Petersburg.
Great photo ops - especially of the riverside of the Hermitage/Winter Palace
Constant information which was difficult to take everything in but a very well informed tour leader. Beautiful day and so everything was shining, very beautiful to see.
It was a very nice boat ride and very interesting to see parts of St. Petersburg from a different aspect. Very enjoyable experience.
It was a small boat with limited seating on top deck and if you seat in the interior of the boat it was very hot and no way to open windows. And no snack available.
Traffic was ghastly from onset as some Summit in town. St Catherines Palace beautiful and would have liked to spend more time in gardens but rushed back to coach to get to lunch. Lunch was obviously at Restaurant run to feed cruise ship crowds. Very dubious "Russian" food and watered down Vodka but Russian folk dancers were entertaining.
Back to ship via Church od Spilled blood but not enough time to go in. Very touristy markets for some souvenirs then back to ship just in time.
River Neva cruise ok. Buildings very drab from river. Commentary ok. Young guy ran along beside boat for most of trip then appeared back at dock for 'his reward', new angle on making tips!
The canal cruise was good, boat a bit basic but plenty to drink so who cares.
Cruise was lovely, unfortunately our guide choose not to use the headsets we had been issued with so we couldn't hear what he was saying so just looked at the palaces etc. floating by.
The river cruise gives another side of the city. So many attractive buildings, churches, spires, domes, boats, iron work bridges to see.
