Lets start by saying that our one day excursion with MarieRose Tours, tour guide Lita, was absolutely wonderful. Can't say enough good things. We got off to a somewhat rocky start, though, when Lita was late to meet us at dockside, and none of the local phone numbers seemed to work. While I was on hold with Viator, somebody in Nevada, Lita showed up. From then on, it was wonderful! Basically, we had a private tour, with a very fluent English speaking local, who obviously knew one heck of a lot about the places and people involved in St. Petersburg's colorful history. My somewhat limited mobility was a slight problem, but we worked through it.
We weren't overwhelmed with the lunch provided, going to an Italian restaurant in St. Petersburg, where it was a major consultation to get a refill of a glass of drinking water, wasn't wonderful. Something more Russian would have been a bit better, but that memory pales compared to the rest of the day. 9 hours of nonstop beauty and history were simply wonderful, and Lita made it happen. First stop was the sphinxes of Amenhotep III, on the banks of the Neva. From there to the Spit of Vasilevsky Island, then on to the Peter and Paul Fortress. From there to the Church on Spilled Blood, and then to St. Isaac's Cathedral, and to the State Hermitage Museum. Then the not so memorable lunch, and a stop at a souvenir shop, and in the after lunch hours, a cruise on the canals and the Neva River, for a view of St. Petersburg from the water. Unfortunately, the cruise we got on was Russian language only, but Lita filled in as best she could. From there back to the ship. The architecture of the city is astounding. One totally impressive piece of Neo-classic architecture, overwhelmed by another a short distance away. And on, and on, and on. For beauty, the city rivals Paris in my experience, with the added benefit of no Parisians! In character, I'd say that Peter the Great succeeded in making a city which rivals Amsterdam. A great day!

Our guide Alex was very frienldy, patient and knowledgeable and gave us all the information we needed to enjoy this tour without overdoing it. There is so much to take in as the tour moves quite quickly from place to place. There was a good mix of churches,palaces, museums and scenic river cruising and we thoroughly enjoyed the day. The only criticism I have is that we were told at the immigration hall at the port that our paperwork would not get us through and that we needed a ship's tour ticket to get off the ship. This was not true and needs to be made clear to customers. We had some anxious moments waiting to see how we would get through and were only accepted when we showed our ship's tour ticket. for a later time.
