The tour was great and the inner cabin was heated. Having said that, there were two issues : The entire commentary is in Russian which meant that I understood NOTHING of what we were seeing except for the Hermitage which I had visited What a pity given that St Petersburg is full of history! Another minor issue is that the site states that food and drinks can be purchased on board. This was NOT available. Overall, seeing the bridges open etc was fantastic BUT the tour package failed to deliver in terms of content and facilities. I could have easily taken the NEVA TRAVEL tour which offers the same (no food or drinks and everything in Russian)
Our family can strongly recommend Wilson tour . Booked a tour to Hermitage in advanced lasting 3h . No other participants so we had our own private guide Valeria Feodorova for ourselves. Perfect ! Valeria was professional and have a lot of knowledge that she shared with us. We had a good tour . I think it's wise to explore the Hermitage museum with a good tour guide . Nice experience overall when in St.Petersburg.
Elena was great company and although it was just my wife and I who were shown around which made it a fairly expensive visit (over (£100) it was a brilliant afternoon and to top it off Elena made some great recommendations.
It was a nice experience going round on the canals. If you go in the Autumn months be sure to wrap up warm though, and the saxophone music is a recording from a live band not a live musician.
Only way to navigate the Hermitage- knowledgable guide Olga who showed us all the major attractions- would still be wondering around now if hadn’t been with Olga!
