If you are planning a vacation to St
Petersburg, Russia, we highly recommend Red
October tours !
Red October's philosophy is "customers come
first." They have first-class transportation, tour
guides, drivers, and staff. This company stands head
and shoulders above most other tour providers in
quality and service.
While some cruise excursions place you on a bus with
40 or more people, Red October specializes in
providing services to any size group of people. You
could be in a group of only 2 or 10! This is an
incredible advantage as you move to and through some
of the most famous St Petersburg destinations.
Red October Company is unique in that Red
October obtains a GROUP TOURIST VISA for all
cruise passengers who tour with them at NO
ADDITIONAL CHARGE for the days you plan to visit
Russia. Red October takes care of all your
in-country visa needs saving you about $150.
We took their Standard Two-day St Petersburg tour.
Day 1 was 10 hours packed full of the sights and
sounds of Russia. Our driver Dmitri and our guide
Svetlana greeted us warmly at the cruise ship,
helped us into our mini-bus and began a very
informative city highlight drive with several
Soon, we were entering the world-famous Hermitage
Arts Museum which is filled with an incredible
amount world-class art by well-known masters. After
lunch we boarded a hydrofoil for an enjoyable boat
cruise to Peterhof Palace (the official Summer
Residence of Russian Tsars) which is also known as
the Russian Versailles. The landscaping, fountains,
statues and palace are awe inspiring. After Peterhof,
we visited the Grand Palace and then were brought
back to our ship. Both Svetlana and Dmitri gave
excellent descriptions, historical information, and
insights for every place we visited.
Day 2 was 9 hours filled with even more of the
wondrous sights and sounds of Russia. We drove to Pushkin, visited the Catherine Palace with its'
world famous Amber Room, strolled in the beautiful
Catherine park and then drove back to St. Petersburg
for a multi-course LUNCH at a trendy local
restaurant! After lunch, we boarded a boat for a
tour of the rivers and canals of St. Petersburg,
then visited St Isaac's Cathedral, Peter and Paul
Cathedral, and the Spilled Blood Cathedral.
Red October tours are very reasonable when
compared to standard cruise ship excursions but the
biggest advantage of Red October is that you
are given personal VIP service in a small group.
Another major advantage is that Red October
has preferred access to the major sights. We never
waited long in line for anything. When we approached
an entrance where there was a long line, we were
sent to the front immediately!
Red October provides the best tours in St
Petersburg. We highly recommend Red October Tours.
