Best way to see Saint Petersburg in a day
Jun. 2019 • Family
What a great company. They made everything easy with planning the tour before the trip. Irina worked with us and accomplished all of our requests with what we wanted to see and where we wanted to eat. She was extremely knowledgeable and just overall a great tour guide. She was there when we arrived at the dock from the ship and off we went. I highly recommend them for a great experience. You can relax and see the amazing sights and know that your in great hands. A wonderful day.

Terrific Service!
Aug. 2019
Although our cruise ship docked in SPB for 2 days, we prefer not to get ourselves too exhausted, and hence we just wanted a one day private tour (2 persons), plus the Folklore Show in the evening. Out of several tour operators, we chose White Nights Travel. Smart choice.

Before the tour I exchanged several emails with the manager Irina. She was helpful to help developing a tailor-made itinerary. She always responded within 24 hours.

On the day of the tour, our guide, Maria and the driver (his name is Val? I couldn't recall) worked hard to make the tour as smooth as possible. Maria guided us through the very crowded Hermitage Museum and the Peterhof Palace, shared with us a lot of history facts and stories. She also worked as the interpreter when we ordered our lunch and dinner.

The price of the private tour was just a little bit higher than that of the cruise line's group tour, and we got very attentive service. I highly recommend White Nights Travel.

Without stress, It's organized and very well infomative by Irina.

The day trip itself went supper well. Maria is excellence guide and extremely knowledgeable. Normally, I am not kind of into culture and art that much. However, I enjoyed every bit of the tour. It was far beyond my expectation indeed.

Excellent 2 day tour
Oct. 2018 • Couples
We had 2 full days of private tour led by Maria. This was by far the best way to see the highlights of St Petersburg. There were 4 of us in our party which made this tour excellent value. Our guide spoke perfect English and was immensely knowledgable giving us the right amount of information without overburdening us. The tour was very efficient with a comfortable vehicle and excellent driver. The whole business of getting tickets and getting through sometimes large queues was handled efficiently and painlessly by our guide. We were recommended by friends who had done the tour before and were very pleased we took their advice and did likewise.

Excellent One Day Tour of St. Petersburg
Sep. 2018 • Couples
We were very impressed by the before, during and after sales service from Irena and team at White Nights. We booked them after a recommendation from a friend. Irina's prompt replies to my multiple emails and her attention to detail were much appreciated. She was incredibly helpful during the planning process and put together an itinerary that included everything that was important to us. All of this done through timely e-mails. We had a very comfortable air conditioned van, bottles of water for each of us, and a very friendly driver. Our guide, Maria, as well as our driver, Valery, made this day so pleasant and smooth. Maria was outstanding. Her knowledge of Russian czars, poets, museums was so extensive! She was incredibly interesting and easy to talk with. Maria’s very knowledgeable and informative explanations and responses to questions were wonderful! We enjoyed relaxing between sights in a comfortable car carefully driven by the ever courteous Valieri.

Perfect Two Day Tour with White Nights Travel!
Jul. 2018 • Couples
Private tours are the way to go in St. Petersburg and White Nights knows how to take care of all the details.We had a group of four, which made seeing everything so enjoyable compared to following 20-40 people around with a single guide. Our guide was Asya, and she is knowledgeable and well organized to get the most out of your days. She seemed to always be able to think ahead and figure out the best ways to negotiate crowded rooms in the palaces and knew where the best pictures need to be taken. Our tour was tweaked to include an extra hour in the Impressionist and Post-impressionists department of the Hermitage.This was well worth it, as there were few people in this area and you could get right up to masterpieces for a look! Asya went above and beyond when my husband caught a cold and we asked her to help us get some medications that would help alleviate his symptoms. Immediately, she was looking on her phone for a pharmacy and helped my husband with translation to purchase what he needed.She knows her country, history, and culture and is happy to share her knowledge. Our driver also knew his way around the city and he even had to deal with World Cup traffic while we toured and we didn't miss out on any of the scheduled stops for our itinerary. This is a VERY busy two days, but worth the price...even compared to the cruise line offerings. Also worth noting is the fact that these tours include the visa to enter the city and the cruise line will tell you that you have to book with them to get off the ship or purchase your visa on your own...simply NOT TRUE.

Excellent Two Days with White Nights Travel
Jul. 2018 • Family
As part of our World Cup trip I signed up for a full day and a half day tour with White Nights travel for our group of three on July 2 and July 3, 2018. Irina the manager was very responsive to my initial email booking the tour. Given the huge amount of tourists in St. Petersburg during this time, I thought it would be hard to get a high quality tour. This was simply not the case, we felt very well cared for with White Nights personal service. We were also staying at an apartment in St. Petersburg for our visit with a owner who was very nice but didn't speak English. Irina was very helpful in helping navigate this situation for us (meeting up for keys, etc) which was above and beyond.
Now for the tour and our guide Tatiana, this was fantastic. Tatiana spent a total of 15 hours with us over two days and was a fantastic guide. Her knowledge of Russian history and the sites was flawless, including the Hermitage. She kept aware of our needs to modify parts of tour based on our interests or need for food and coffee. She was funny and helpful, including helping us download key apps for using the metro and the Russian care share service when she we were on our own. Most of the sites were packed with tourists, but Tatiana made the touring seem intimate and kept it fun. I would highly recommend White Nights.
