3 Days in St. Petersburg via ferry

We’d never done a tour before, but this sounded like a good way to see St. Petersburg, which everyone RAVES about. The “cruise” part of the tour was forgettable (food was quite mediocre, there were frequent announcements on the loud speaker, first in Russian then – supposedly – in English but after “Ladies and Gentlemen” it was mostly unintelligible. Getting off the ship in both Helsinki and St. Petersburg took a very long time and seemed disorganized, but perhaps that isn’t a problem the cruise line can address. BUT then we started the tour in St. Petersburg! We were a congenial group of six Americans, with a very nice Mercedes van and driver who was with us for the entire three days.

We were on the Northern Lights tour Sept 24th - Oct 1st with Thor Ostensen and it was an amazing tour!

Our first kudos go to Susie Main who was extremely accommodating and helped us to book an amazing tour. She was very patient with questions and very thorough – a big thank you to her! .This small group tour of 12 with Thor as our driver/guide was amazing and even better than we had hoped it could be! The vehicle was perfect as well as the Itinerary and we saw Northern lights a bunch of nights with Friday 27th being a spectacular event! Thor was the perfect guide and made all of the difference. He was extremely helpful with taking photographs of the Northern Lights and filled with so much great information. He couldn't be any more accommodating. The Itinerary was perfect – I can't think of a thing that I would change .

Stockholm-Helsinki-St. Petersburg-Helsinki

Thank you very much for arranging our tours of Scandinavia and Russia.  We really enjoyed the services provided by Borealis Destination Management, most of all our tour leader, Mirjana.  I learned a lot in Russia from Masha and Natasha.  The transportation arrangements went smoothly and we enjoyed the variety of types of travel.  The accommodations were very good.   We were fortunate that we traveled with interesting and pleasant people.  All in all, my husband and I had a fantastic trip.  Thanks for putting it together. – Christina Ferguson
