We hit all the high spots on our itinerary and were able to gain quick access with our tour guide, especially enjoyed the insight on St. Isaac and the St. Nicholas Cathedral. Also, was unaware of the islands that are incorporated in St. Petersburg, so that knowledge was interesting. Our tour guide shared information from Soviet time as well as pre-Revolution. I found it fascinating.

Excellent tour!!! Our guide Lidia took us to many places... we went to see the most interesting places in Saint Petersburg that we would not have done alone... we booked the full day trip and IT'S TOTALLY WORTH IT!!!!! the lunch included was great and big enough to give you strength for the rest of the day. Then, the whole afternoon was in the Hermitage museum... what a great day!!! totally recommended!!!

We booked our tour of St Petersburg and the Hermitage with Marierose through Viator and had a great experience. Our guide Catherine spoke very clearly and was able to answer all of our questions. Her knowledge of the city and in particular of the paintings and different artifacts in the Hermitage was fantastic. We were lucky to have a small group of 3 making the tour intimate and allowing us to easily listen to the stories, facts, ask many questions and take time to enjoy the sights. Transport was by Taxi van and our driver was very good, driving at a comfortable speed. Our tour went for 4-5 hours and was a great introduction to St Petersburg. the ability to miss the long cues at the entrance to the Hermitage alone was well worth the price of the tour. Would have no hesitation in recommending this tour to other travellers.

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.

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.

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.
