The BEST of St. Petersburg Russia

Saint Petersburg Russia was the featured stop of the Azamara Journey for our 11 day North Sea and Baltic Cruise from London to Stockholm.

Our ship was docked in the city for a full 3 days and 2 nights for an immersive experience. We went on a 3 day tour with Alla Tours and it was absolutely fantastic!

Our tour was well organized and ran like clockwork. Our small group had great lunches, did not wait in line for tours, and had early access to museums.

Our tour guide Alex was outstanding. Very organized, knowledgable and he had a great sense of humor. Our small group was together for all 3 days and Alex and our driver Oleg made us feel right at home.

In addition to our awesome visits, there were breaks for shopping and a delicious lunch at a different location each day. This tour was one of our best tours ever!

Saint Petersburg Russia is a remarkable city. Steeped in Russian culture and history, but with a large European influence on the city’s design. A must see bucket list city for sure!
