A spectacular ride. If you want to observe St. Petersburg at night is the best vision. And drawbridges are a great experience. It is worth the cold that is passed. Like all the tours and activities that I bought online, the difference of buying the tour right there is too much the difference.

terrific spectacle!

You should have participated in this at least once! The guide, who showed us the sights on the right and left on the way to the Neva, did very well. To recommend at any time!
