We enjoyed our stay in St Petersburg, the Hop On Hop Off was our greatest highlight. We were happy to meet a very friendly and helpful guide, Tatyana in Red Line bus. She really made our sight seeing your very memorable. We will definitely encourage people to use the bus just to get the feel of what is happening around St Petersburg.
We hit the "hellish" weather in St. Petersburg. Thanks to the trip by bus and then by boat, we got to know a large part of the important monuments in the city without much effort. It took us about 6 hours in total. I recommend
To go to Peterhof on the Meteor is a small “sea” trip. Fast, comfortable, convenient! Great view from the window! I advise everyone !!!
We got there quickly! With great views overboard! And without wasting any extra time.
Very useful and interesting for a first "meeting" with the town attractions.
