Olga was our tour guide - she was very friendly and super knowledgeable. Not only did she know the facts but she also told interesting stories.

This was an interesting tour because we traveled like a local! First we took the subway and then a commuter bus to Pushkin. I would recommend doing this tour during the week and not a weekend. Even though we already had tickets, we had to stand in line for about an hour to get in and it was very crowded. On the way back we looked at several beautiful subway stations.

My friend and I booked the Cathrine the Great summer palace and metro station tour. Alisa picked us up at our hotel promptly and guided us through the busy metro and bus scene to the place. She took time to walk us around the expansive palace and explained the history of the palace and its inhabitants over the years. We were then taken back to the metro to tour some of the cities impressive stations. We enjoyed our private tour immensely and would highly recommend Alisa to anyone who is interested in a private tour she is very knowledgeably, patient, and professional.
