Tickets and Tours is a Russia based federally registered tour operator formed in 2014 by 3 long-time experts, 2 Russian and 1 American, in St Petersburg tourism, shore excursions with a combined experience of 48 years providing shore excursions and land tours. For the first 2 years, we focused on shore excursions offered by well-known booking agencies and western travel agencies but have gradually expanded booking options for direct visitor booking at the discounted prices travel agents get.
We are based in St Petersburg Russia, one of the world’s great travel destinations rich in history, friendly, open, safe, modestly priced and unrivaled for culture, art and beauty.
We formed Tickets and Tours because we felt there were better matches between visitor interests and preferences than what was generally available at the time. We began by tapping the most experienced experts in St Petersburg tourism for staff and the created a unique range of tours, activities and options.
Every tour provider believes they are the best for clients but we think, based on long experience and a closer familiarity with foreign visitors(one of the partners is American and created the first popular independent shore excursions offered in St Petersburg that kicks off the trend of tours independent of the overpriced crowded ship sold bus tours almost 2 decades ago) and being avid travelers ourselves, created tours and services we would have liked during our own exploration of other countries and cultures.
