    We offer private tours

    If you are on a private tour with K JOY Travel you save time! A private tour makes a big difference in terms of time and getting around. It is the best way to explore the city, moving at your own speed with your own private guide. It is easier to get around when you are not trying to coordinate the needs of an entire bus full of people. Both St. Petersburg and Moscow are very big cities and places of interest are spread far and wide. The only way to optimize your time is with a private tour. You will be able to see twice as much using a private tour rather than a large group excursion. By not doing a private tour you could miss out on so much of what the city has to offer.

    • Being in a small group you go to the head of the lines at most of the sites
    • You may change some things at will to suit your interests on the spot, while on a tour
    • You have the advantage of a knowledgeable guide who is there solely for the purpose of making sure you see and understand everything.
    • A private tour gives you an opportunity to talk to the guide and ask individual questions, something that was difficult in a 40 person group on other tours

    Experience Russia through the eyes of a local GUIDE with K JOY Travel!

    We understand that because of the language barrier it appears to be not feasible to do a tour on your own. St. Petersburg (SPB) is a very large city and places of interest are spread far and wide.
