Worth 3 hrs walk

The tour was well organized and ideal for small groups trying to take a look around the center by foot to get a feel of it. Anna was my guide and was very knowledgeable and passionate to share the history. We ended the tour with traditional Russian food. Overall was a good experience. Would recommend to take this tour to get a feel of the place, narrow down your interests and go in detail to the ones that you would like to explore more.

Excellent tour on our last day in St. Petersburg

We were fortunate to be the only people on the tour so our charming guide, Oksana, tailored the walk to ensure we covered highlights of the historic area that we had not already seen during our week here. Then we had a simple, yet delicious, lunch at a local restaurant. Definitely recommended.

Ask for Oksana as your tour guide!

I could not have asked for a better tour guide. I arrived about 10 min late for my tour and Oksana was patient enough to wait for me given that I was the only person who booked the tour that day (20 July 2019). She is extremely knowledgeable about the history of St. Petersburg and is very passionate about giving a great tour. She came prepared with many supplementary materials to help explain how the many of the attractions of the city have changed over time. At the end of the tour, we had a delicious Russian lunch at a local restaurant. Overall, I highly recommend taking this tour with Oksana!

We had an amazing day at St. Petersburg. First, we got lucky with the weather-a cold but bright and sunny day. Second we got lucky getting Oksana as our tour guide.Oksana is a real professional; very knowledgeable smart and funny (and speaks a perfect English). We learned a lot about the history of St Pete. The only thing I would change in the tour was the lunch that was not to our liking. We would have been happier with just good coffee and conversation or a place that specializes with one Russian dish.

The actual walking tour was pretty good in terms of the sites seen. However, the guide was inexperienced and just spouted basic facts with little insight. In addition, the included lunch was late and the food second rate.

Our guide , Anastasia, was simply perfect. We were on a cruise and had seen some of St. Petersburg via the cruise ship's excursion. The day we toured with Anastasia was our free day . When we met her, we told her what we had already seen so, on the spot she devised a new route for us . It was informative and entertaining and it was tailored made. Anastasia has a laid back way that encourages questions and comments . She knows her city and her history. We ,obviously, recommend her as a tour guide.
