Baltic cruise-St Petersburg tour
Sep. 2019 • Friends
I scheduled this tour through TripAdvisor months before our trip instead of through the cruise line. This particular tour got excellent reviews and we liked that it was a small group instead of a big bus tour. We were not disappointed! Everything was well organized from the booking through the last day of the tour. But what sealed it for us was our tour guide Anna. She was wonderful! Her knowledge, quick wit, and easy manner...and excellent English made this one of the best tours we have ever taken. We’re a well traveled group of 8 and we were all extremely happy with Anna, Andrew our driver and the itinerary. We all would recommend this tour company and would give Anna 10 stars out of 5!

A really well organised two day highlights tour. Tatyana was an absolute gem of a guide with so much knowledge and well supported by Andre the driver. Would highly recommend this tour. With the visits pre-planned there was no waiting in long queues and being part of a small group was really nice.

I don't know how to rate this...
The tour was fantastic. Natalie was super knowledgeable and kept our group together so we'll, that we weren't wasring time "finding people". It was definitely a highlights, there is no way you could see everything in just 2 days. The reason why I am struggling to rate this, was because it wasn't the tour I booked. I'm not sure what went wrong, and our guide wasnt able to help. We booked this tour so we could visit the faberge museum, and was really disappointed on the 2nd day to realise that it wasn't part of the schedule and we could have done it as an option the night before. We did select the ballet option, which was fantastic. Victoria, our guide for the evening on the first day took us on a walking tour around the city. She was very informative. So, the tour was fantastic... It just wasn't the tour we had booked.

Dear Susan , thank you for the kind words about Natalie, Victoria and the fantastic tour. We wish we could hear about your feelings that it was not the tour that you had booked before you left . We thought that you had chosen ballet vs faberge on the first day. Then if you had mentioned that on the second day, we could have easily provided that visit. Well, anyway it’s our fault that such misunderstanding took place.

Absolutely amazing!
We had the pleasure of booking the two day highlights of St Petetsberg tour with Ludmilla in May.

Our guide was the informative, cheerful, interesting and personable Jane! We honestly couldn’t find fault with her, nothing was too much and her vast array of knowledge was impressive.

Jane provided an interesting, entertaining and informative commentary over a very busy 2 day tour.

Jane proved very helpful and pleasant in all manner of things from the mundane to the heavenly and all stops inbetween.

Her unflagging energy and enthusiasm kept our party going over a very busy two day period.

Nothing was too much trouble for her- answering all manner of questions with wisdom and aplomb.

Many thanks to our Driver Anatolia who had a great sense of humour.

Could not recommend this experience enough, thank you so much!

Thanks for the memory!

Marvellous tour
Jun. 2019 • Couples
Saw absolutely everything we wanted to in St Petersburg and so much more. Our guide Tatiana was amazing, and although there was quite a lot of walking she always arranged an end-of-visit meeting point for those who couldn't walk round the whole itinerary at any particular location so that the other travellers were not inconvenienced. Being a small group meant we could quickly stop off at various photo points without waiting for a whole coach load of people to disembark. There cannot be a better 2 day tour - our own personal likes were the metro ride and the Faberge museum, but of course the wonders of Peterhof fountains, Pushkin, the Hermitage and the city churches are unforgettable. A life time of great memories made over these 2 days - many thanks to Ludmila tours.

Svetlana of Ludmila Tours hosted our small group tour May 17 and 18. The tour was fascinating not only because of the places we visited but also because of the skill and knowledge of our guide, Svetlana. We saw churches, palaces, gardens, the Hermitage Museum. On the second day of our tour Svetlana took us to a practicing Orthodox church. It was not nearly as opulent as the major historical churches but fascinating nonetheless. Svetlana's knowledge of art came through in our visit to the Hermitage Museum. She helped us appreciate what made a number of paintings so outstanding to the art world. Plus her ability to get us through crowds and to the front of the many lines made our visit really comfortable.

A member of our group wore a Fitbit. He calculated that we walked 5.5 miles on Day 2, a day in which we toured some canals by boat.

As tours go this was a high quality experience; one we recommend without hesitation.

Our group also appreciated driver Mikhail who so smoothly negotiated St. Petersburg's traffic.

Amazing Anna
Booked this tour through Viator and Ludmila Tours was the contracted agent. The tour was excellent from start to finish. Our guide Anna was amazing, her knowledge of Russian history was extraordinary and her ability to recall facts and figures was so impressive. In addition to that Anna was so personable and warm, our entire group loved her from the start. Be prepared for a very busy two days but it is well worth it. Highly recommend Ludmila Tours.
