Tour: #6537, St Petersburg Shore Excursion: Imperial St. Petersburg for Two Days Private Tour, Saint Petersburg, Sankt-Peterburg, Russia    
Date: Aug 23/18

We booked Alexander for a 2 day tour of St. Petersburg during a recent Baltic cruise trip. I can't say enough nice things about him and our tour. He was prompt, pleasant to be with and extremely knowledgeable of Russian history and the sites of St. Petersburg. Although he is an accomplished tour guide, we never got the feeling he was going thru the motions. He put together a great itinerary - museums, palaces, churches, city, shopping etc. - and he explained each visit with enthusiasm. I highly recommend!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Vincent - Thank you very much for high rating of my tour! I was really happy to be your tour guide and show you and Cynthia around our beautiful city.

Alex was outstanding. He was exceptional in his pre planning of the details of our visit. We were able to avoid extreamly long lines into several venues and he provided an advanced visa which was helpful going through immigration. He quickly recognized that I took a lot of pictures and took us to the spots that provided the best view. I would feel very comfortable recommending to others.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much, Lee! It is great to hear that you enjoyed your time in St Petersburg. I was trying to do my best to make your time enjoyable and memorable.

Alexander tour guide and driver Alexander conducted a personal tour for my wife and I in St. Petersburg. We would never have seen the city in such an enjoyable and informative way in a large group tour "following the flag" and visiting shops. For me an important part of the experience was the ability to ask questions about just about anything. Alexander was the one to raise the leadership question by asking what we thought of Prime Minister Harper in Canada. Humour is a good thing.Frank

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much, Frank! I'm really glad we had a great opportunity to see our beautiful city and talk about many interesting issues, including politics. I wish we had more time!

Day 2 - Alexander also talked about himself. He got better day! We saw the Peter & Paul fortress, had a city tour, walking too, but we drove from location to location. Our favorite is the Church of the Spilled Blood. He told great hysterical stories. We had dinner with him at a Russian stroganoff place and then went to the Folk show. Great day!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I was glad that weather improved and we had another great day.

Alexander was excellent!!! Very informative, very interesting and very accommodating. Our driver also named Alexander was just great too and the vehicle that was used for the 4 of us couldn't have been more accommodating and comfortable. Our two days in St. Petersburg will be a lifelong memory thanks to the Alexanders. What a beautiful and unique city.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear John, Thank you very much for your great review! I'm very happy to hear that you enjoyed your time in St Petersburg. Best regards from Alexander I and Alexander II

The time my husband and I spent with Alexander in St. Petersburg was one of the highlights of our cruise. The information and instructions we were sent beforehand were clear,the drivers he provided were very personable and safe and the vehicles were very comfortable. His love of and knowledge of St Petersburg meant we were in for a treat on the days we were with him.We would recommend him most highly to anyone visiting St. Petersburg and especially those travellers coming in on cruise ships.

we cannot say enough about our guide alexander and our driver sergei! alexander was in contact with us even before the tour so we felt as if we already knew him when we met him... we did not have a question he couldn't answer -- he was knowledgeable, prompt, polite, flexible, and made good use of our time... he was thoughtful and considerate, always accommodating our pace... his english was flawless... his plan was pefectly timed, we never had to wait in a single line... we recommend him most highly!

Alexander was a very knowledgeable, reliable, efficient and pleasant guide. There were 4 in our group and we thought it was the best way to see St. Petersburg. We were driven in a comfortable Mercedes (we had a competition to see if we could make the driver smile - but no luck!). We have spoken to others on our ship and a trip to the underground was a popular thing to see - wished we'd thought of doing that. We would recommend Alexander if you are planning a trip to St Petersburg.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Shirley, Thanks for high rating of my tour and your comments. Yes, we had a nice and comfortable Mersedes car and a serious driver. :) I planned to take the underground trip on our way back to the city on the second day, but it was rush hour and too hot in local metro in the afternoon. I'll be happy to see you again and spend more time with you! Best regards, Alexander
