"We went on the Splendors and Faberge Museum Tour in St. Petersburg. It could not have been better. The tour included entry fees to all of the beautiful spots visited and there are a lot. It also included two delicious lunches at beautiful Russian restaurants. A real value but what stuck out was the quality of the tour guide and bus driver. They took great care of the group and it was a lovely two days taking a grand look at a one of a kind city. We were on a Baltic Cruise and chose this over the similar excursion offered by the cruise line. One reason was that it is about half the price but what sold us was the reviews on the tour quality from other reviewers. They were not wrong. It was first class from start to finish."
