One has to visit Hermitage Museum when in St. Petersburg. Elena our tour guide was very knowledgeable and gave us lots of other tips where to go and see next.
We had an excellent guide for our visit who met us at our hotel. On the way to Pushkin we were given a full history of St Petersburg and it's development, from Peter the Great to the modern day most informative. Our driver dropped us close to the Palace and the guide took us through the Palace giving us a superb narrative on the way. There was time for pictures as well as to take more time over items we specifically wanted to see, for example the pictures in the Amber room. Our guide was incredibly well informed we could not have asked for better. The trip was tailored to what we wanted, where we wanted to go and what we wanted to do. We were taken back to the hotel and were left knowing that we would use Viator again to organise our trips!
We had a very pleasant experience with this tour. Our guide was Mr Roman who was very professional and knowledgeable. Recommended!
Outstanding tour with Roman. An absolute must if you go to St Petersburg.
The guide Lydia was knowledge, friendly and spoke amazing English. I could not have done these locations by myself - she was great. It was worth doing the 2 stops as they both had a different feel. The gardens were less attractive as it is going into winter, but the interiors were incredible.
My guide was knowledgable and professional. However, our early access was not permitted and our tickets were not ready upon our arrival.
The tour was overall OK. Our guide was very polite and very knowledgeable of Russian history.
Downsize, we took the tour on a Wednesday when churches are closed (something that should have been foreseen) and couldn and #39;t visit one of the main places included in our tour.

Olga was awesome, she really knew the city and really took the time to explain the small things. Highly recommended tour!!!!
It was a very pleasant experience. This was my 3rd trip to St. Petersburg but my first trip to Catherine Palace. Our tour guide was an excellent English speaker and very knowledgeable.
We enjoyed very much this tour. Guide very nice, punctual and very patient with our questions and photos. Meeting point, excellent!
Absolutely wonderful guide, I won't embarrass myself by trying to spell her name collected us from the hotel on time with our driver. She made the car journey very interesting pointing out many interesting locations en route. Her knowledge of the Peterhof was superb, as was her enthusiasm during the entire 4 hours or so we were with her. A genuinely lovely time with a delightful guide. Please pass our thanks to her. Thank you
Irina was an excellent guide and we thouroughly enjoyed our time with her. Her knowledge of St Petersburg was second to none, she took time to take us off the beaten track and our walks along the canals were very enjoyable.

We were lucky enough to be the only 2 people who signed up for the tour this day. Private guide and early access are a must for a museum of this magnitude. It was special to be in such an amazing place with very few others. As soon as it was open to the general public, it was a mad house. Marina was very knowledgeable about art history and her appreciation for the art made our tour very enriching. I wish we could have spent more time in the museum with her.
This was a great way to see the main sites of St. Petersburg. Elena, our tour guide, met me at the front door of my hotel around 10 minutes prior to the scheduled pickup, and a comfortable van then took us to meet the other 4 people in our group, staying a few blocks away. We drove first to the Fortress of St. Peter and Paul, and then on to tour several of the main cathedrals and other sites. Elena also guided us to a shop with very high quality jewelry and marushka dolls - a bit pricey but much better than the stuff found in the shops along Nevsky Forum. After lunch we had a guided tour of the Hermitage. Elena provided extensive knowledge of the history and life in current day St. Petersburg. We even had an insightful discussion of Russian vs. Western attitudes towards autistic children. I greatly appreciated this inside view of the city in a small group where we could ask all sorts of questions. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone wanting an introduction to the city.
