Great tour - excellent day!
We booked this while on a cruise and our experience fr om start to finish was outstanding! Everything including communication -price -value -itinerary -and the tour guide herself was amazing. Tatiana was our guide and she was outstanding. She knew exactly wh ere to be to avoid line ups -her knowledge/history level was completely amazing and she was friendly and practical. We were able to be first in line at the Hermitage and avoided massive crowds! I have had great success with TJ Travel tour and will continue to recommend and book with this company!! Terrific 2 days!! Definitely recommend
Daria and her driver were prompt, professional, and courteous. Daria has a background in art education and thus was able to guide us through the sites and palaces with great aplomb and a fount of knowledge. She even found us a local place for pirogi and got us into the Vodka Museum instead of just the usual churches and monuments. Nice Mercedes, really cool early entries into, well, everything. Highly recommend.
Thanks to TJ travel I had a wonderful time in St Petersburg. Svetlana was a wonderful guide and the drivers and the office staff were excellent. They all went out of their way to make this an unforgettable experience. My guide took me to the best restaurants, they accompanied me on a river cruise, they were with me the whole day and shared the most interesting stories with me.
We would use TJ Travel over and over, our guide was so informed, and were lucky as she was an older guide who lived through the Soviet Union and now Russia. She got us to the front of lines in many places, well versed in the art and history, trained as a translator with international travel experience herself. It was a private guide for four, good driver and very nice van...comfort easy in and out.
It took quite a while & after a lot of research to choose TJ Travel. We were in a small group and we were well looked after by Natalia. We also did the tour of the Faberge Museum, which was amazing.The tours were well organised and our bus driver Yuri was kind enough to lock our belongings in the bus and made sure they were safe.
All I can say is fabulous company, fabulous tour, fabulous guides and fabulous city!!
We brought all four grandparents and two of them were wheelchair-bound. Both the tour guide and the driver were patient and considerate: they tried really hard to make sure that the grandparents were having a good time. The tour guide speaks perfect Chinese and English and knows the history/culture really well.
The tour arrangement was great: we managed to see many interesting sites at a relaxing speed.
I would highly recommend TJ Tour!
