Sadly we had to cancel our trip due to corona virus epidemics. The refund was issued very fast and overall I am very happy with the service level of this company. Hopefully we will travel next year and I will book with them again.

We had only 2 days in St Petersburg and wanted to make the most of it. Booking a guided tour with City Break was the key to success. Our guide Alex was exceptional. She told us everything about the Russian history without making us feel overwhelmed. The van was clean and comfy.
