We were made to wait outside the Catherine Palace for 1:45 minutes in very inclement weather - why? No one could answer that question! Then rushed to make it back to our ship!

We did a private tour with TJ Travel. I cannot recommend them highly enough. They were superb! Private touring is the best way to see St. Petersburg.

Weather was dull but was still able to see a lot of the city on the river cruise. Local entertainment provided on the boat was entertaining with audience participation encouraged.

We booked the standard one day small group excursion with TJ Travel and could not have been happier. In a small group of 10 with a wonderful English speaking guide, Helen, and driver in modern van we were able to enjoy: ride around town, souvenir shopping stop, Hermitage, Church of the Spilt Blood, lunch in a Russian restaurant, hydrofoil ride to Peterhof where we toured the gardens, and ride between to two opulent metro stations. We so enjoyed being in a small group, and it almost felt like a private tour. Read Less

We hired a private tour with TJ Travel for the six of us traveling together. Since my aunt and uncle are slower it allowed us to move at our pace. TJ Travel also provided two wheelchairs after we got started. We ended up waiting for them which was fine but I didn’t even know they had them otherwise I would have asked in advance. I am surprised they didn’t mention it when I told them in advance we had some ambulatory issues. One wheelchair ended up being faulty and we couldn’t use it but it was more of a precaution for my uncle anyway. In the end we put the one wheelchair to good use and our guides were prepared the second day. We got around to all the major sites and had an AMAZING time with our guide Julia and our driver Boris. We picked this cruise because we could spend two days in St Petersburg and we could have spent more time for sure. It was a whirlwind but spectacular. It was a LOT of walking. Peterhof in particular is not set up for people with mobility issues. Long walks to everything and eventually a climb up to the parking lot. My aunt and uncle would have missed some amazing gardens but they would have been better off skipping Peterhof. Read Less
