Alex Walker, our guide, gave us an outstanding thorough private tour of St. Petersburg. A combination of car and walking, we spent 8 hours learning all about this special city. Since Alex is also a history teacher, his knowledge was extensive and insightful, providing the significance of key events and important monuments in Peter the Great's city. Excellent English.
Well worthwhile and historically interesting. Our guide was very knowledgeable and very patient whilst we took a million photos. Both she and the driver made our tour a delight
Our guide met us at our hotel right on time. We travelled in a taxi to each of the main attractions within St Petersburg where our guide explained the history and details of each attraction whilst answering any of our questions with ease. Her knowledge was great which made this tour very interesting. Even though it was pouring with rain we thoroughly enjoyed this tour.
We were a party of 2. Our guide arrived on time, she was wonderful, very knowledgeable of the history of St. Petersburg, its sites and also of all the galleries and paintings she showed us at the Hermitage.
This was an excellent overview tour ot Saint Petersburg. My guide spoke good English and was very informative. The Hermatage part was a very helpful introduction tor my whole day self tour (audio added) the next day. I highly recommend that technique for digesting the Hermatage.
Because of the time of year I was alone on this tour.

Our guide was very good. We had a private tour and the car was comfortable. We saw all that was promised. The centuries old buildings were quite impressive. The new buildings are drab and undistinguishable. The lunch was very good. All in all, a great tour.
Great day's outing with a very knowledgeable guide and small group. The Russian lunch was nice and the Hermitage was amazing.
This tour was amazing - Lydia the tour guide was really adept at articulating the information about the history of each of the sights - She was brilliant
