About
Seeing St. Petersburg independently on a cruise stop means covering a vast amount of ground and history. This 2-day visa-free tour does the work for you with two daylong itineraries that leave you to concentrate on the sights as a guide provides historical commentary. Plus, it features benefits such as early access to the Hermitage Museum, tours of the Catherine and Yusupov palaces, lunches, and included canal and subway rides. Cruise passengers generally require a visa for independent travel so this tour saves the hassle with its visa waiver.

Brilliant service and tour
Dec. 2019
A full 2 day tour picked up from our cruise ship. Gives a great taste of all the major attractions. Not cheap but fully worth the cost. Cannot recommend highly enough. Tour was in July 2019.

Unbelievable tour
Oct. 2019
We just returned from a Baltic cruise, and picking Alla Tours was wonderful.
We had Marina as our guide for 2 days, and she was excellent, professional and you could hear the pride in her voice as she toured us around her home town.
These 2 days of touring were intense, long and so full of fabulous information.
I would highly recommend Alla Tours.

Unforgettable 2 days
Sep. 2019
Because our ship did not offer tours with an English speaking guide we booked with Alla tours; based on the reviews.
Our guide Svetlana and driver Ilya made the 2-day grand tour an unforgettable experience. She was an expert guide; friendly and very knowledgeable. Ilya, the driver took us safely and comfortably through the St. Peterburg traffic.
Have recommended Alla tour to friends that are planning a visit.

Fantastic tour
Oct. 2019
Alex was our guide for the two day grand tour of St Petersburg the beginning of October 2019. He was an amazing guide, extremely knowledgeable on a wide variety of topics.We were very happy with the organization of Alla Tours. Group maximum is 16, the capacity of the bus. Before the trip my emailed questions were answered promptly. My only disappointment was that I hadn't booked Alla Tours for the other Baltic cities we visited.

Could not have been better- BOOK NOW
Oct. 2019
My husband and I had a hard time choosing between the Grand Tour and the slightly less intensive Royal Tour (featuring the Fabrege Museum) but I ended up choosing the best of both worlds by booking the Grand Tour with the Fabrege evening add-on. This tour could not have been better. We were so fortunate to have Svetlana as our guide- she was by far the best I have ever had. Her knowledge was endless (whether we were on the bus or walking, she only stopped talking to communicate with our bus driver- I don't know how she did not lose her voice) and she was just as enthusiastic in the 17th hour as the 1st. Although well rehearsed from doing this tour so frequently, she was also authentic, candid, and open to any questions our group had about daily life, politics and more. She also navigated us like a pro through busy locations like the Hermitage and Catherine's Palace (which was very crowded despite it being an off-peak time). We also enjoyed getting to meet Svetlana's husband (I did not catch his name), who narrated our canal cruise (another amazing way to see the city- highly recommended, even in the cold!)

The attractions themselves were stunning- I never could have fathomed the beauty or detail of the palaces, and it truly felt like we hit every possible highlight in the St. Petersburg area. The sit-down lunch was great, and the boxed lunch (which I was a little skeptical about) was very hearty!

Communication with this company was top notch- they answered every question and provided detailed instructions in regards to meeting and expectations. Thanks to their hospitality, I felt more at home in Russia than in any other country we visited.

My only suggestion- for your company's own benefit- is to make the evening add-on programs easier to find/book on the website. I also missed having a guided tour at the Fabrege Museum (Svetlana had spoiled us during the day) although I understand with just 3 of us it would have been asking a lot. However, I think you would get more evening bookings with the info more visible.

All things considered, Alla Tours made this an AMAZING, UNFORGETTABLE experience in Russia! THANK YOU for taking such great care of us!

We got to see an awful lot of great things in St. Petersburg in two days. The days are long but the tour is very well organized. The two guides were pleasant and knowledgeable. The meals provided were fair. The downside is that they only allowed 30 minutes for shopping in one store.

Incredible experience
Oct. 2019
Anya was our guide for two days. She was very knowledgeable and informative of every sight with a wealth of knowledge about the history of Russia and St. Petersburg. The 2 day excursion included a boat trip, and wonderful lunches each day of the tour. The palaces and the churches were breathtakingly beautiful! I would highly recommend Alla's Tours and I know they are half the cost of the excursions on the ship.

Comprehensive tour SP. An amazing history.
Oct. 2019
An incredibly comprehensive tour of the prime sights around St Petersburg well presented by our guide Svetlana. Cannot recommend Alla Tours more highly having also completed tours with them off our cruise at both Berlin and Tallinn. Ease of contact/ communications and for payment, amount of pre trip information etc plus the discount for the booking of the multiple tours proved a great move and much cheaper than comparable onboard booked trips.

Svetlana gave us an enlightening insight into the history of SP and its rulers. Tour over two days included a boat trip which gave a great perspective of the city, early entry to a number of places of interest which were packed as we were finishing up plus two lunches. Lots of walking but it was necessary to do the city justice.
