We were in the beautiful St Petersburg on June 2016 and had two great tours organized by horizons tours! Our guide Sofia spoke very well German and gave us an even better experience in the city!
We highly recommend them!
"I want to say the words of praise for arranging the tour to St. Petersburg for our employees. Every detail of our tour was organized at the highest level. From planning our tour itinerary, according to our preferences to organising a gala-dinner and theater tickets. It was not our first trip to St. Petersburg and we had something to compare with. And definitely this comparison is in your favour, the quality of service you provided and the amount of attention you paid to our group. If we plan another trip to St. Petersburg for our employees or partners, we will definitely choose your company."
We would like to express our gratitude for the well-organized tour to St. Petersburg for our party. We had booked a trip for our holidays in May and weather in St. Petersburg gave us a great gift. All excursions were perfectly planned and our guide, Elena, was beyond praise. A true professional, she gave us a detailed information about all the attractions we visited. Despite the fact that almost all the museums were crowded our guide conducted us with minimal waiting. We were so excited! Thank you again for a wonderful experience.
"We had a two day package with your tour company in St. Petersburg and without question it was the best we could have imagined! Great value for the money! Our tour guide, Helen, was wonderful and shared her knowledge of the city and landmarks in a delightful, story telling manner rather than just rattling off facts. We saw the Hermitage, the Peter and Paul Fortress, Church on Spilled Blood, Peterhoff, St. Isaac's Cathedral among others! I will highly recommend Horizons Unlimited to friends who would like to visit St. Petersburg!"
"We had the most wonderful time in St. Petersburg. Our tour guide Helen was outstanding, her English was excellent and her knowledge of every aspect of Russian life, history, art and politics was amazing. Yes, we had such a good time in St. Petersburg, and look forward to returning another day. Please send our regards to Helen and our driver, Evgeny for us. Thanks again for arranging such a wonderful visit. You did a great job!"

The Blue Bridge (Siniy Most)
The Blue Bridge (Siniy Most)
Directly between St Isaac's Cathedral and the City Hall building there is a bridge, as wide as the adjacent Isaakievskaya Square, that is rather tricky to see. At 319 feet 2 inches (97.3 meters) the so-called Blue Bridge (Siniy Most ) is the widest bridge in the world. However, to the dismay of the people of St. Petersburg the Blue Bridge was not accepted as the Widest Bridge in the World by the Guinness Book of Records. The reason for this is, unfortunately, unknown but if you find a wider bridge elsewhere in the world please let us know!
