St. Petersburg Tour

Outstanding 3 day tour with Anastasia – amazing guide – one of the best – knowledgeable, caring, detailed oriented – thought of everything from the first moment to the last. Planned our entire time – booked tickets, reservations for dinner, boat ride. Made for a beautiful visit. I was worried about the hotel but it was great – highly recommend it – location and the extra large room/suite was perfect for 3 of us (traveling with adult son). Suzie was perfect to work with – delivered on everything and anytime I was worried she took care of it immediately whether from visa help or getting airport transfer.

Helsinki - St.Petersburg - Tallin - Stockholm Visa free by ferry

This trip was setup through East-West Tours and they did a great job. All the documentation and transfers went very smoothly. We booked a deluxe cabin on the ferry (slightly larger cabin and "priority embarkation and disembarkation"). If you keep in mind that this is a ferry and not a cruise ship you will probably find the food, accommodation and level of service to be just fine. An odd thing – Twice for our priority disembarkation (both times with luggage) we gathered in a lounge on the 6th floor and had to carry our luggage down stairs to the 4th floor, this would be very hard for anyone with physical limitations. For St.Petersburg we requested a private guide and driver. Our guide, Olga Dashkevich, was fantastic.

72 hr Visa-free Tour of St. Petersburg

Oh My! We had just the BEST tour of St. Petersburg. Our East-West representative (state-side), Dora, was just amazing. She was beyond patient and tireless in responding to my questions and requests and went above and beyond to accommodate the add-ons we requested, and got! Thank you Dora!! Our small group, consisted of my husband and me which for most tour agencies would have meant cancellation. East-West just the best. Thank you Aliona for an awesome tour of your beautiful city, St. Petersburg. Aliona, and our driver Sergei (sp?) were both so very informative. I feel like we got a true picture of the beauty of St. Petersburg.

Four night Baltic tour including 2 nights in St. Petersburg

A great opportunity to see the treasures of St. Petersburg in a visa free way. The tour and the guide were well organised with no hitches. I was the only person on the tour and so had undivided attention of both driver and guide. The hotel was excellent. The ferry was ok – Sean Hilton -

Well organised

Our Guide met us at the terminal which was a very pleasant as we had just endured several hours departing the ship and waiting on Russian border security. Our guide marsh was very knowledgeable and spoke excellent English. Her knowledge of history of the area was invaluable. Our driver was very good too , he was able to get us to all destinations on time . Our 3 day tour was extensive and at times a bit to much to take it all in. I would easily recommend the tour to others, what I would change is going for the suites on board the ship. As this gives you priority when departing the ship. Better seating areas for your meals . Oh the meals , hey were fantastic on board the ship.
