Very disappointed with this tour. My partner and I had been looking forward to doing a tour of the Hermitage and had been our first trip to Saint Petersburg. Unfortunately our guide turned up looking as if he had been ill ? and had little knowledge of the Hermitage e.g. 'That's stained glass over there'. We decided to tour it ourselves eventually.

If you do not want to spend hours wandering around and trying to find the best pieces of art - this is the way to do the Hermitage in 3 hrs. My guide - Dmitry - was knowledgeable, polite and very nice. The price is not too bad for a personalized tour to your liking. Highly recommended!
