    We enjoyed our stay in St Petersburg, the Hop On Hop Off was our greatest highlight. We were happy to meet a very friendly and helpful guide, Tatyana in Red Line bus. She really made our sight seeing your very memorable. We will definitely encourage people to use the bus just to get the feel of what is happening around St Petersburg.

    This was worthwhile and excellent although we could only use the ticket for one day. Ticket much cheaper than buying at St Isaacs ticket booth. Nice courteous English speaking staff. We took Green route on an older bus and Red on a newer one which had a slightly better sound system. Otherwise both excellent with good information and great views from the top deck. The roof was closed so the cabin quite warm. At least 48 hour ticket would be recommended as you need lots of time to see all of St Petersburg and hop on/off for all of its sites.

    Best option to tour the city if you have limited time. I would advise to take 48 days pass as that's what we took and gave us enough time to visit all the places at our own pace. Only problem is that the duration between busses is too long (may be due to the traffic)... Worth the money!
