One of our stops on our Baltic cruise was in St Petersburg, Russia. We had two days in port and wanted to see as much as possible. We were advised by a friend who also used Tailored Tours to contact them. Excellent advice! Tailored Tours helped us set up the perfect tour to see as much as possible in our two day timeframe. Their group communicated promptly with answers to our questions as well as making perfect suggestions to help us achieve our goal. Not only that, but they chose the absolute best tour guide, Maria, to make it all happen. Maria and our excellent driver, Vitoly, greeted us at the port and off to the races we went. Maria's knowledge of the history of all the sights was incredible. Each place we visited became a story of what, how, and why! We so enjoyed her descriptions, her efficiency in getting us into the all of the sites, her choices of restaurants for lunch, and her overall personality. Her English was impeccable! We will highly recommend Tailored Tours and Maria to anyone looking for the best opportunity to see the amazing city of St Petersburg! By the way, we'd give more stars if they were available!
