Really interesting tour and well worth while. Anastasia was knowledgable and it is interesting to talk to someone living in St Petersburg about current times and politics. Do take this tour.

We met our guide Anastasia in Palace Square at 6pm. Brilliant start - our guide is called Anastasia! It was just the 3 of us so we had a very informative walking tour. This tour was brilliant and for a young guide to be that knowledgeable about the Revolution and Soviet times was a real achievement. Anastasia was brilliant. For this tour to be of value you would really need to have some interest and knowledge of the topic up front because it almost becomes a two way discussion on a massive topic. I did learn some things I was previously unaware of - I highly recommend this tour.
One point - on the descriptions I read before booking the tour - I read that we met in Lenin Square at Finland Station where Lenin arrived etc and that on the tour we saw The Big House KGB and also visited a Soviet Cafe so I was surprised that my on line booking gave instructions to meet at Palace Square. On our tour we did not go to The Big House or a Soviet cafe. But of course we saw other things like Pravda offices and we did visit the flame shown in the picture. I think maybe there are two tours? You could not possibly visit Lenin Square, The Big House, and Palace Square storming of Winter Palace in one walking tour. Anyway it does not matter. You can visit later whatever interests you after. THIS TOUR WAS EXCELLENT AND OUR GUIDE ANASTASIA WAS BRILLIANT.

Tour guide was prompt, friendly and knowledgeable.

I asked lots of random (not always communist related) questions which he was happy to answer.

Great tour!

The tour was excellent and our guide Svetlana was incredibly well-versed in the history of Leningrad under Communist rule.

The guide knew his facts very well. The History of the Russian Revolutions are not well known in the west and it was an eye opener for me.

The meeting point should be in a public place - I had to pay for a train ticket that I wasnt going to use just to meet the group. The guide also wasn't a very good speaker/storyteller and preferred 1:1 conversations which really doesnt work in a group tour setting.

my 3 friends and I waited almost an hour and our guide did not turn up. The number of the tour company that was stated in the voucher was not in use. Very disappointed.
