What people are saying about Palace Square

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

Sensational 2 coaches one after the other make you fly over a part of the historic city with strong and subtle explanations,

Excellent to have a first general approach on a part of this beautiful city ... I recommend

Very useful and interesting for a first "meeting" with the town attractions.
