Shore Excursions with Best Guides

Welcome to Baltic Ports!

In each of the Baltic ports we will provide you with a local guide. All of these guides are members of our big team. They are not only true professionals, but also enthusiasts who love their profession, love their countries and are very much eager to share their love and knowledge with you. We want to interest you in our history, culture and life, we want you to fall in love with our countries and we want you to return again and again!

We offer:

  • open group shore excursions in small groups,
  • private shore excursions,
  • individual tailor-made tours developed according to your interests and wishes.

NB! We provide Visa Free shore excursions.

 Visa free shore excursions in St Petersburg Russia

  1. If you choose to book your shore excursions in St Petersburg with us you don't need visas! We will provide you with special tour tickets which allow you to pass the immigration office without any problems.
  2. To provide your tour tickets we need the following information:
      – full name
      – date of birth
      – passport number
      – passport expiration date
      – citizenship
  3. In the immigration office in our port you are to show:
      – passport
      – tour ticket which we provide you with
  4. The time of the beginning of your tour is appointed in your tour tickets and the confirmation. Our guide or representative will be waiting for you outside the passport control area 15 minutes prior to this time.

    Please notice, that according to the new regulations of the Port authorities our vehicles are not allowed into the territory of the port earlier than 1,5 hour after the ship arrival. We accustom the beginning of the tours to these time restrictions. However if you come to the passport control area earlier our immigration officers will let you through anyway as the time restrictions are entirely inner regulations of the ship company and the port authorities, and have nothing to do with immigration services.

    If you pass the passport control earlier than we are able to deliver your vehicle we will kindly ask you to wait a bit for your vehicle to arrive. If on the contrary your disembarkation is delayed due to the long lines in the custom zone (which can often be the case) we will wait for you as long as needed. In this case we would kindly ask you to let us know about the delay by phone/viber/watsup or e-mail.

    Once past the passport area please look out for the sign with the name of the Company (Best Guides). If for some reason you can’t find us you can call us.
    Our telephone number is indicated in your tour tickets or on the conformation list.

NB!If you are cruising with kids check our child-friendly shore excursion.

NB! If you are interested in tailor-made itinerary get in touch with our manager.

NB! Information for physically-challenged people.

From our clients' reviews:

St Petersburg tours for cruise passengers

...I ordered this package of shore excursion St Petersburg Russia a month before visiting St. Petersburg. Our tour guide is very competent and attentive to tourists. She knows the history of St. Petersburg and Russia very well and she was able to tell it to us. Many thanks to Best Guides for such a great shore tour in St Petersburg Russia! (KrisNelson, Pennsylvania)

Cruise ship shore excursions St Petersburg Russia

...At all times Best Guides were willing to modify the St Petersburg tour from cruise ships to fully suit us. Our shore tour guide, Irina, was very knowledgeable and looked after us in every respect. Overall we felt that the cost gave us excellent value for money. We would highly recommend Best Guides to cruise excursions in St. Petersburg Russia. (Tour779864)

Shore excursions group St Petersburg Russia

...An excellent shore excursion for me and my children! I'm happy that I was lucky to find Best Guides Company ahead of time and order a tour around the city from them. It was a shore tour for cruise tourists with young children - Learn-and-Play. My children were delighted! (chenxu73, Illinois)

Shore excursion St Petersburg

...St Petersburg shore excursion with Best Guides was truly the best thing we could have done. We really appreciated the small groups tour and the Russian flavour that we were given in addition to being simple tourists. Our tour guide was lovely and we appreciated her quirky sense of humour. We saw city with Best Guides and got a real flavour for Russian life. (Debbie L, United Kingdom)

St Petersburg shore excursion

...Our group from Norway was very satisfied With Best Guides and especially the knowledgeable and enthusiastic shore tour guide Maria! She took us to the important sights and made our experience unforgettable in every way! She knows so much and had stories and anecdotes to add at every site. I can highly recommend the company and their services for cruise passengers. (Ole L, Norway)

St Petersburg Russia tours from cruise ships

...We organised a two day shore tour with Best Guides whilst visiting St Petersburg by cruise. Sophia navigated the crowds brilliantly. We saw all the highlights and everything went like clockwork. Fantastic st petersburg tours for cruise passengers that I would highly recommend. (Fun2have, Sydney)

2 day tour of St Petersburg Russia

...Our shore tour guide Anna was a mind of information and her raident smile will remain with us always. I have no hesitation in giving the highest recommendation to Best Guides based on the Best of the Best tour we chose. (serenity133, Berkshire, UK)

St Petersburg Russia tours from cruise ship

...We fell in love with Elena, our St Petersburg tour guide. The 2-day shore tour was fun and interesting and Elena was incredibly knowledgeable and had a witty sense of humor. She happily accommodated all our requests, and the program was perfect for us (a member of our group traveled in a wheelchair). (Kinn E, Norway)

Cruise excursion St Petersburg Russia

...We had a 3-day shore tour of everything St. Petersburg has to offer. Our tour guide Svetlana was absolutely AMAZING! In every place that we visited, she had not only the historical perspective, but also a first-hand account of how current day Russia was formed by its past. From start to finish, we enjoyed every aspect of this amazing experience. Thank you very much to Best Guides and Svetlana! (Arbonne Group ltd, California)

Shore excursions of St Petersburg

...Elina made our shore tour of St.Petersburg Russia exquisite! From the email information she provided prior to our arrival in Russia to helping us obtain the correct visas, choosing tours, booking the private tour in St Petersburg, arranging meeting places, directing us to great local cuisine, figuring out the money, she made everything work like clockwork. (DianeGibson, Colorado)

Visa free shore excursions in St Petersburg

...St Petersburg is beautiful. The tour itself is a whirlwind rush around all of St Petersburg's major attractions. Actually, I'd now be confident enough to get a Russian visa so I could get off the ship and tour independently. The shore tour covered all the essential tourist viewing and photo opportunities, but I would now love to spend a few days walking through the Hermitage and revisiting the Peterhof gardens. (Vivian, West. Australia)
