Julia:Thank you, thank you for a huge success! My clients, the Cantwell / Korn group, who booked three days with you in St. Petersburg, June 21-23, are ecstatic about the time they spent with Elena and Vladimir. I can not say it any better than what Tom Cantwell wrote in an email recently sent to me. “Not much to say about Dancing Bear and St. Petersburg...other than AMAZING. Our guide Elena and driver Vladimir (Julia's husband) were more than excellent. Elena's breadth and depth of knowledge about each of the excursion destinations was second to none. From Picasso's at The Hermitage to St. Issac's Cathedral, she knew it all. Elena was gracious, understanding, and engaging. Vladimir must know every street in St. Petersburg and Pushkin...he was always able to outwit the heavy traffic to get us where we needed to be. Again, please pass along our sincere appreciation to Julia.”

Dear Julia, I finally arrived home. Thank you for our memorable visit to St. Petersburg. It was perfect in every way…from your warm greeting when we met at the airport, to our Delightful and knowledgeable guide, Kate. We learned so much, thanks to Kate’s extensive knowledge of the history and culture of your magnificent country. She is an outstanding and very personable guide! I travel rather extensibly and I’d like you to know Kate’s tour was the best one I’ve ever taken. She is knowledgeable, sincere and well spoken. That meant a lot to Jeanette and me. With my warmest regards and many thanks, and hopes that I shall see you and Kate again.

Hi Julia Many thanks once again for making our trip to St Petersburg a lovely and memorable one. Olga and Edward are both such wonderful company. Thanks especially for the arrangements with the Conservatory, the results were far above what we had expected and it has given Ben even more motivation to write music. I have shared with many friends about my trip and they are pleasantly surprised to know that its possible to make arrangements directly with a Tour Company in Russia and I have recommended your Co to my friend Sandra, who may be contacting you to plan her trip for June next year with her family. Warmest regards.

It was fantastic to meet you and Lana while we were in St Petersburg. We had a wonderful time and really enjoyed learning about the Russian culture and experiencing the beautiful landmarks, churches and museums. Everything went perfectly and we could not have asked for a better day so thank you!!!I will definitely look through the reading list, although I am still only on page 200 of War and Peace.  Thanks for the recipe too, I didn't get to try it in Russia so nice to have the recipe.Thanks again!

Saint Petersburg tours by Dancing Bear

If you come to St. Petersburg by cruise ship, according to the laws of the Russian Federation you can stay in the city 72 hours without the visas, which makes the visit to Russia much easier. However, you have to be accompanied by a professional licensed tour guide everywhere. Our company offers such visa-free tours to St. Petersburg. To prove that you are with a guide, we provide you with a blanket visa (a visa substitute).

Another reason to take tours to St. Petersburg is that the port in our city is not located in the downtown, even by car it takes about 20 minutes to get to the city center. Our guide and driver will meet you directly after you clear the customs in the port terminal.

Tours to St. Petersburg from a hotel

If you are staying in a hotel, it is also advisable to join a St Petersburg tour. First of all the downtown is quite spread and some of the sights are not that easy to reach. Secondly, some of the places like Catherine palace (the one featuring Amber room) or the Hermitage museum it is better to book in advance, which we will gladly do for you. How about an orientation drive around the city with a knowledgeable guide, who will help you to understand the city better and to find your way around easier?
