  1. I booked a unique 2 day private tour with a SPB-tours in April and paid for it in June 2019. After getting off NCL Getaway we located our tour guide. We went drove to St Petersburg. Pros Private car with one bottle of water per person Great 3 course lunches with one bottle of water Got to see the gold room in the Hermitage with a Russian speaking guide Got shop at local grocery store Good and helpful driver The guide was very informative about life in St Petersburg Cons Did not get to all the sites promised in the April confirmed agenda Didn’t see any of the art in Hermitage. I ask to see some Renoirs but was shown Rembrandt. I was very disappointed. Many stops were too early or too late There were addition tickets that we had to pay for. The guide stated that ticket were 1700 Rubles but turn out to be 500 Rubles. There was very little thought in the planning of the tour. We passed some sites two to three times. There was very little adaption to the need of the clients. (Mobility issues) We had very small time to shop. The guide was very confused about the agenda. The guide spent lots of time on her cell phone In conclusion: we were very disappoint with SPB tours , but thought St Petersburg's city was great.
