Well Organised Tour of St. Petersburg

Hello Dora, I just want to let you know our tour of St.Petersburg went very smooth and all went well. The hotel was excellent as well as the food and service. Our Guide Victoria was very professional and certainly knew the city. She gave us a wealth of information and knowledge about the palaces, museums , cathedrals and all the paintings and artifacts and tried to please us all . I was expecting lots of tourists and a very busy 3 days and Victoria did a great job moving us through the crowds and our busy schedule and it is much appreciated. I look forward to returning someday. Thanks for a successful trip. Best regards. Don – Don Popadick -

We can thoroughly recommend East West Tours!

We can thoroughly recommend East West Tours! They provided us with superb hotel accommodation and It was a complete delight to have Masha as our tour guide in St Petersburg. Not only was she full of amazing facts and information but was also a charming lady who never ceased to “look after us” during our busy couple of tour days. Her knowledge of her lovely city was exceptional. Masha ..........you, and your torquoise fan , did a wonderful job and many many thanks to you and our driver ( who never had us hanging around for more than a few moments ) .

Helsinki - St. Petersburg - Helsinki - thank you!

Hi, I would like to thank you for assisting us in this absolutely fantastic tour. This was one of the most positive experiences during our trip in Europe. Private tour allowed us to see what we wanted to and the inexhaustable knowledge of the tour guide and the driver(!) packed us with the Russian history. The recommendations for the local restorans were just what we needed. The food at Dom was superb: extra good beef strogonoff and impeccable service, just to mention this one. Thanks again and see you next time. We'll be back soon.... – Orsi and Lina -

Perfect for a short visit to St. Petersburg

Thank you to Bobby at East West Tours for putting together a reasonably private tour for us. My husband was in a wheelchair and would have not been able to travel with a group. Our guide and driver could not have been more knowledgeable about Russian history. Such an experience never would have been possible without the expertise at East West. Thank you! – Wendy Kelso -

Visa-Free St Petersburg Ferry Tour

We loved our trip to St Petersburg! We spent two nights on the boat and one day in Helsinki before we arrived in St Petersburg and you helped us to arrange a tour in both cities as well as arrange ballet tickets for us in St Petersburg. We absolutely LOVED our hotel in St Petersburg and our guides were knowledgeable about the city. Our one complaint – the tour pick-ups for both days (Helsinki and St Petersburg) were arranged for the exact time we were allowed off of the boat. In Helsinki, we were approximately twenty minutes late to our guide because of the passport control. In St Petersburg, we were nearly two hours late.

Memorable Family Trip

Hi Dora – I wanted to thank you for all the help you provided me in our trip. We had a wonderful time. The guides and logistics you provided were outstanding. Everything worked well (other than delayed flights over which left us stranded for a time in Iceland before finally getting to Stockholm). I can't say enough about Maria (Mosha) – our guide in St. Petersburg. She was an expert in the history, art history, architecture,and culture of Russia. She was absolutely encyclopedic. The crowds were ridiculous and Mosha took wonderful care of our group throughout our stay. Thank you again. Our family trip was truly memorable.

I wish to thank you for all your help in planning our trip from St. Petersburg to Moscow. All went very well. The train ride was uneventful. We did need some assistance from the concierge at our hotel in St. Petersburg in deciphering the signs in the railroad station. We had her write our the words "departure" and "arrival" in Russian, so we would know what track our train would be leaving.
