The guided tour was definately the highlight of our trip to St. Petersburg. In 3,5 hours we got to see and learn alot about the beautiful city. It was a rainy morning but the weather did not matter because we got to sit inside a warm bus while listening to our guide talk. Sasha was an excellent guide and we enjoyed the way she told about all the sights and about the history of the city. What was especially nice about her style was how she challenged us to really learn instead of just listening.
We are also very pleased with the services provided by You. You always replied fast to my emails and everything worked out very effortlessly.
Overall, we are satisfied customers and can not really think of anything to improve. We will definately recommend Parallel 60 Tours to our friends travelling to St. Petersburg! Thank you very much and please send our warm regards to our guide Sasha as well!
With best regards, Heidi Nieminen Helsinki, Finland
Message: Hi Natalia... just a note to say a BIG thank-you to Parallel 60 for a fantastic two day tour with Marina on 22nd and 23rd August. We could not have asked for a better tour guide. Marina gave us so much interesting information and made the trip to St Petersburg something that we will all remember fondly for many years to come. We told everyone on our cruise about Parallel 60, as some had very negative reports about their own, Cunard arranged tours with other companies.. Once again, Many thanks and, hopefully, one day we will return to your beautiful city for another Parallel 60 tour.
Message: Hi, I am trying to leave a review for the above tour which I took at the end of July. The official page to leave the review is not allowing me to submit the form and I wanted to leave a comment so have copied it below. Hope this is ok. Catherine Blair I would recommend that other people booking this trip confirm with the company the exact meeting point for the start of the tour. We were told to meet at a Metro station that had multiple entrances, all quite a distance apart. The guide was actually waiting for us on the platform but this was not made clear by the tour company that this was where to meet her. This aside the tour was excellent and extremely interesting and informative. I would recommend it to anyone visiting Moscow and would like to thank our guide for her honest insight into life in Russia.
I do not have words to thank you for all your help and assistance when my passport got stolen in St. Petersburg last week and I was required to obtain a Russian visa for leaving your beautifull country. I cannot forget how you came running on getting the first information and took me to the offices/photographer/bank/hotel.
I have been travelling for decades and covered various countries in conducted and independent tours, but I have never come across some one who so much cares for the tourists.
Of course it is such a pity that I have been deprived of taking this wonderful Trans-Siberian Railway Trip for no fault of mine.
My sincere thanks to you for your help, sympathetic attitude and total support.
our guide, Ms. Sacha as we called her, was a delight to be with. she knew you business extremely good, and Bill and I both evjoyed her company and valuble knowledge. She certainly is an asset to anyone she works with, and for a tourist in St. Petersburg, I can think of no one that could educate them better than her.
Message: Natalia; Just wanted to THANK YOU for the wonderful tour we had in Saint Petersburg!! My family and I were very happy with the tour and with Katherine.

If you ever need or if there is some place we can give a high recommendation for your tour company, please let me know!! I do not think I told you or not, but I am a Travel Agent and I will most definitely advice my clients to use your company if they are going to Russia. Again, Thank You SO much CATHY LAMPELA-HAYS
