As two couples joining on a Baltic cruise
As two couples joining on a Baltic cruise, we were very pleased that we chose TJ Travel for our tours in both St. Petersburg and in Tallinn Estonia. This is a very professional organization, and all of their up front communications about organizing the tour, meeting the guides, and even the payment process were always clear and timely. Maria, our guide in Tallinn, and Margarita, our guide in St. Petersburg, both did an excellent job. In addition, our driver for the two days in St. Petersburg was excellent, and knew exactly what he has to do to get us to the tour sites and to be there when we were ready to move on. The itinerary laid out by TJ was excellent, and they worked very hard to get you a full day of value for the fees. They also chose great restaurants for our lunch stops, and made sure that we were set to order what we wanted, with an opportunity to sample Russian style cuisine. Margarita knew exactly how to by pass the long lines at a number of sites, and her knowledge of the history and culture of the area was exceptional. We highly recommend this company. By the way, we had been advised that there could be delays in clearing immigration at the cruise terminals (and TJ had assure us in advance that no matter what, they would be waiting for us). In fact, other than waiting until 7:15 AM on day 1 for immigration to open, the process turned out to be quite short, and it was even quicker on day two.
