Pavlovsk with Russian Troika horse riding – winter tour
It is a good tour to consider among the places to visit. The palace at Pavlosk holds lot of history and it is very well preserved. The guide was very knowledgeable providing lot of information, even while driving thru the city out of St Petersburg. We enjoyed the ride in the troika too. Information with lot of fun, that is a productive vacation. I highly recommend this tour and the guide.

Pavlovsk with Russian Troika horse riding – winter tour
The Pavlovsk Palace is very different from the other grand ornate palaces in St Petersburg. It is a must see. It has much more of a family atmosphere with excellent collections of all sorts of art and architecture. We enjoyed the palace interior very much and we went for a long walk in the beautiful gardens. Our guide was good. She knew her stuff and our private tour was well worth it. Unfortunately the palace grounds were not yet frozen and they did not permit our horse and carriage ride in the park, so we went instead through the nearby village. It was still a fun thing to do. The palace is 45 minutes to one hour drive from St. Petersburg but it is worth the time to do the tour. Allow about 4-5 hours total.

Tsarskoye Selo and Pavlovsk tour
Thank you very much. We all enjoyed the tour. Let me summarize our experience.
1. MB Viano: good car with enough space for us 3 and the wheelchair. Driver Edward was ok.
2. Tour guide: Ludmila was well informed about the history of the places and the history of the Romanovs. She provided all the necessary information to understand the background. She was also very professional in the Tsarskoye selo and Pavlovsk palace - helping us avoiding the queues.
3. She was also knowledgeable about current situation in Russia and was very helpful explaining to us the daily life in Russia.
4. Initially she seemed to have some reservations in dealing with Germans - she explained that some of her relatives had been killed in WW2 by German soldiers. She was not so much tense after a while travelling with us.
5. Generally she has a very nice and open attitude and offered any assistance we might need. She arranged a booking in a restaurant for dinner: Art Caviar was a great place to explore the Russian cuisine.
And she helped sometimes - when the other were busy taking photos - pushing me in the wheelchair ))

Peterhof and Kronstadt Visit for 2 couples
Peterhof is a really must when in St Petersburg. Stunning location with beautiful garden that I would recommend to any visitor. We had an excellent guide in Irina and we also stopped at Putinhof (!!) to take pictures. Kronstadt was not as expected as we had an expectation to see some of the fortified island(s) and islets, but the cathedral was gorgeous. Still - the visit to Peterhof is one not to be missed !

Yusupov Palace and Saint-Isaac's Cathedral
Isaakskathedrale ist absolut einen Besuch wert. Die Innenausstattung ist typisch prunkvoll, viel Gold aber auch bunt. Trotz Restaurierung konnten wir fast alle Ecken der Kathedrale erkunden. Danach gingen wir noch hoch zum Säulengang. Das würde jedem empfehlen. Einmal rund um die Kuppel, kann man alle Ecken von St. Petersburg von oben betrachten. Ich bin sehr froh, mich für die Besichtigung entschieden zu haben.

Hydrofoil trip to Peterhof and St. Petersburg night city tour
Wir sind im Juni in St. Petersburg gewesen. Unsere russischen Freunde hatten dort eine Stadtführung für uns gebucht. Unsere Reiseführerin war Veronika, die hervorragend Deutsch spricht. Sie hat uns sehr freundlich empfangen und bereits auf den ersten Metern haben wir von ihr sehr interessante Einzelheiten über St. Petersburg erfahren. Zusammen mit ihr besuchten wir die Sommerresidenz von Zar Peter dem Großen. Bereits die Fahrt dorthin mit dem Schnellboot war faszinierend. Veronika hat uns sehr professionell und immer kurzweilig und unterhaltsam über die russische Gesichte informiert. Zu jedem Raum der Sommerresidenz konnte sie eine spannende Geschichte erzählen. Die Zeit dort verging wie im Flug. Einer der Höhepunkte dort war der Besuch der technischen Anlagen unterhalb der Springbrunnen. In der Nacht ging es dann mit Veronika durch die weißen Nächte von St. Petersburg. Das Highlight hier war sicherlich das Hochziehen der wunderschönen Stadtbrücken. Den Anblick tausender Boote zu klassischer Musik und Beleuchtung werden wir nie vergessen. Wir bedanken uns ganz herzlich bei Veronika für ihre hervorragende Reiseleitung.

BeAbo never fail to deliver for me in St. Petersburg
I have had the pleasure (again) of using BeAbo's service for a large group of visitors - this time for 20 persons from Stockholm. A 3-day guided tour including securing meals for lunch and dinners and the guide staying with us from pickup at the hotel in the morning until dinner time in the evening. They managed also to secure transportation + extra guide on short notice when 50% of the group suddenly wanted to go to the Artillery Museum instead of Hermitage museum. A good cooperation (day/night) between their guide, their project manager and myself during the trip secured a smooth sailing for the group having a great time with sighseeing and russian/international cusine. I highly recommend using this company when visiting St. Petersburg.

Svetlana was an excellent tour guide fluent in English and Igor(?) a very prompt driver. They were so courteous, friendly and knowledgeable.

We spent one weekend in St. Petersburg with nine guys of my sport team. And to make most of it we scheduled a three day private tour with BeAbo. You have very knowledgeable and friendly tour guides. Natalya was fantastic! She is passionate about her beloved city and Russia, knows about all the sites and enjoys showing them to you. She wasn't in any rush and always wanted to make sure we got the most out of trip. She really made the tour a fantastic experience and managed to keep us attentive, so ... thanx to all of you!

I booked the tour from home and it was St. Peterburg and tours around Moscow as well. All passed spotless - easy booking, quick communication, and it was all run extremely professionally. Our guides were polite, very attentive and great story tellers. I compared lots of tour companies in terms of pricing and offers before deciding to go with BeAbo and would absolutely use them again! Lots of knowledge about Saint Peterburg and Moscow and whole Russia. Our manager Veronika was really concerned about ensuring we had what we needed to have a good stay. Very good value for money!

Four day tour for a family of six persons
St Petersburg is wonderful but we enjoyed it a lot more with our private tour. It was a blessing to have early entry to the Hermitage and reserved time slots in TsarskoyeSelo. Our guides spoke excellent English and Spanish and were well understood and had ways to avoid crowds and get the most out of every visit. The tour encompassed the Faberge Museum, The Church of the Spilled Blood, Peterhof Grand Palace, The Hermitage, Gatchina palace and many more wonderful places including a breathtaking rooftop tour, boat trip and evening folk show with furshet.
We could not have wished for a better experience and heartly recommend this tour company!

7 day tour of two cities for a family of 5 persons
My experience was enhanced by BeAbo company with information and guidance cheerfully given by guides in both cities. We had travelled from Moscow to St. Petersburg by Sapsan train (thoroughly recommended, just 4 hours on the way). I was impressed by the professionalism and coordination of our long 7 day tour. Our manager Veronika does a fabulous job of making sure you are well informed, comfortable and have a great visit. In whole tour we had 3 guides and they had very fresh and friendly way of telling the city's stories and sharing impressive amount of historical information of the cities and Russia in whole. Together with our flawless itinerary and access to museums without long queues it made a magical experience. We visited more than 20 landmarks and had a really great Russian holidays. Many thanks to you!!!

Sehr geehrtes Be Abo Team, Ich bin nun wieder in Deutschland zurück und darf Ihnen einige Bemerkungen zu ihrem Dienst „individuelle Stadtführung“ machen. Diese Reise und ganze Führung war außerordentlich gut organisiert. Alle Termine wurden pünktlich eingehalten. Die örtlichen Reiseleiter (oder wie sie sagen "Aborigine") war sehr kompetent und freundlich. Unser Aborigine war nicht nur sehr engagiert, sondern hat sich auch um eine individuelle Betreuung sehr bemüht. Das Programm war wunderbar! Auch die Buchung des Hotels hatte gut geklappt, sodass wir auch noch einen außergewöhnlichen Aufenthalt hatten. Wir werden die Reise in bester Erinnerung behalten. Vielen Dank für dieses Gefühl der Entdeckung! Mit freundlichen Grüssen. Alice und Jürgen Stenzel.

Translation: Dear Be Abo team, I am back to Germany and want to share some findings about your service “individual excursions”. The whole trip and program were organized exceptionally well. All the meetings happened in due time. Our guide was very qualified and respondent with lots of good energy and also showed concern about our needs and demands. The program was amazing! The hotel reservation also passed well and we leaved in a very remarkable place. We will remember this wonderful trip! Thank you for this Feeling of discovery! Warm regards, Alisa and Urgen Stenzel.
