I was pleased to see this questionnaire as I already intended to send an email thanking your company for the wonderful tour we had in St Petersburg, our excellent guide and the extra things like phoning us to see what was happening. I only hope you can let future passengers know that they don't have to wait to get off their cruise ship (unless, of course, your country's entry requirements do change). I think the tour represented excellent value for money as well.

I could not complete to sent you the questionary. My computer would not let me type on it. But I feel that I must comment on your 2 days tour of St. Petersburg that I and my husband took. We traveled with 3 other couples on the “Princess Emerald”. I went on line before the trip and booked the tour with your organization. The others in the group booked with “Princess”. I feel that your 2 days tour was exceptional. I was extremely pleased with the tour guide, Evgenia Karlova. She was excellent. I have traveled in the past and must say that her tour was the best that I have ever experienced. She knows Russian history, art, and architecture. She gave us insight into the daily life in Russia. I would highly recommend your tour organization to other travelers.

It was very nice of you to reorganize your payment site so we could pay safely. It was easy for me to navigate. I especially appreciated how quickly Nadia responded to our questions. As soon as we sent a question we would hear from her the next day. That really impressed me and helped me feel comfortable that we were dealing with a legitimate company.

I'm very impressed with your organization. It was recommended to me via my opthamologist and I have to concur with him that it was great! Good job!! We loved Anatasia.

We are very much satisfied with the whole organisation and turn out of the 2 day tour in St. Petersburg! We told everyone at home we were treated like VIPs as we had the comfort of having a small group. So it actually turned out to be a private tour! We made maximum use of time, skipped queues, avoided rushes and guide was really flexible to our needs. We will certainly recommend your tours to our Maltese friends and if we ever decide to visit Moscow we will surely contact you again! Thanks for making our trip to St. Petersburg special and a trip we will surely remember!

Dear TourDeForce, Thank you for your email on feedback, unfortunately we were unable to access the form. When we booked our trip on line with your company we really did not know what to expect. However I can tell you that what we did experienced was first class service. We had only booked the one trip with you but were so impressed with your service that we booked another trip for the following day. As far as the questions in your questionnaire, I would mark them all at 3 (excellent), as for our guide her knowledge on history was quite remarkable which went a long way to making the tours so enjoyable. I would have no hesitation in recommending you company to other people. If we were to tour there again we would most definitely book with you again. Thank you for an enjoyable two days.

Hi  Bella

Our recent trip to St Petersburg was the most wonderful experience thanks to the efforts of your tour guide Eugenia (Genie).

Genie was the most amazing, knowledgeable guide. Her passion for Russia and her city and her command of the English language truly astounded us. We have wonderful memories we will cherish forever and envy you living in such a historic city with all the art treasures of the Hermitage. Genie provided information on all aspects of Russian life,its politics,people,and artworks.Please pass on to her our gratitude and thanks once again.

Our driver, Sergei, is also to be complimented on his professionalism. He was passing on information to Genie and making sure he got us from A to B in time and tried to avoid the traffic congestion at all times - he seems to know all the back roads and shortcuts!

The Ballet was a special treat and we felt so privileged to have experienced so much Russian culture.

With best wishes

I would like to reply saying the whole tour was excellent and far better than we expected. Your tour guide Kath was an excellent host and very knowledgeable of every point of interest in St Petersburg, especially the Hermitage museum. Having never before visited Russia it gave me very different insight of a very fantastic country. Please give my personal thanks to your staff who helped arrange this tour with special thanks to a lovely and excellent guide and last but not least of our driver.

Too much detail on individual items. Ginny and Alexander were both wonderful. Never will I book a tour again thru the ship when there are such wonderful companies like yours available.
