When we first booked the tour, it was described as a tour of the Gold Room and the Diamond Room. It turned out that it was meant to be a private tour of the Hermitage followed by a tour of the Gold Room with the Curator. I believe that Viator/TripAdvisor needs to be more careful in describing the tours on their websites. Since we had already seen the Hermitage once and had little time, we opted to skip the private tour of the Hermitage. Our guide, Olga, was very flexible and walked us over to the Russian Museum and then called an Uber to bring us back to the Hermitage in time for our tour of the Gold Room, which was amazing. She also showed us a few things in the general collection that we had missed on our first tour.

Our tour guide was Valeria Mozhina. She was incredible. Extremely knowledgeable and very interesting. We were exhausted but really wanted to spend several more hours with her talking about all of the wonders in the Hermitage.

Fantastic. The Gold rooms are wonderful and full of treasures from very old cultures. The guide who spoke excellent English showed us the most dainty of details. The Museum tour which followed was essential to get the best out of the Hermitage. The Museum is very big and full so getting from place to place with a guide is much easier.
