One has to visit Hermitage Museum when in St. Petersburg. Elena our tour guide was very knowledgeable and gave us lots of other tips where to go and see next.
loved tour - such a great guide. If you are in St Petersburg you must do this tour and see this place
The art was wonderful but the building itself was amazing! Our guide moved us through the rooms giving us the history behind the paintings and the construction of the building. It was a history lesson that went beyond art and into the politics of the time as well. The building itself is a work of art with floors and walls and lights that one does not see in this day and time. It's a treasure to say the least.
We were lucky enough to be the only 2 people who signed up for the tour this day. Private guide and early access are a must for a museum of this magnitude. It was special to be in such an amazing place with very few others. As soon as it was open to the general public, it was a mad house. Marina was very knowledgeable about art history and her appreciation for the art made our tour very enriching. I wish we could have spent more time in the museum with her.
We enjoyed very much this tour. Guide very nice, punctual and very patient with our questions and photos. Meeting point, excellent!
Angelina, my guide was wonderful. Tour could not have been better.
tour was first class all on time skipped the line entry . our guide Aliona was excellent 3 hours long only 6 in our group .great tour .
Valeria was an excellent guide who showed us the most important parts of the museum with efficiency but also great enthusiasm for the works of art inside. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the tour and would recommend this tour to anyone who would like to skip the line when we visited, the line was 200 meters long and it was raining! and would like to have a professional, friendly, and knowledgable guide. Thank you, Valeria!
We were meet on time and fast tracked through the long lines of people waiting to enter Hermitage. We had an outstanding guide who gave us a select tour of key areas of the museum, and an historical perspective to the various works over three hours. Other group tours seemed to have much larger numbers - we were a group of six and were able to ask questions of our guide throughout the tour. I would highly recommend this tour.
Skipped the hours long lines and had a very informative, pleasant tour. Allowed in early and well worth every penny. Guide was a professor in the off season. Having only six people in our group allowed us to see so much, ask questions, and not have to follow a huge group of tourists. Highly recommend.
Great museum, the guide was very knowledgable and friendly. Long day on our feet.
The tour was great our tour guide Alisha was lovely with a great sense of humour and did not rush things at all. The place was amazing with so much to see
Olga war unsere Führerin. Sie war sehr kompetent. Sie spricht mehrere Sprachen und so konnten
wir von ihrem Wissen voll profitieren. Wir können Viator weiter empfehlen.
Our guide Elena was extremely well informed on both the history of the Hermitage and all the major pieces of art. We usually don't use guides when we visit such museums but so glad that we did use Elena, as she enabled us to get the most out of our visit to a museum which I would rate as one of the top 2 museums I have ever visited. Great tour.
Our guide Elena was wonderful. As we had a tour of the Hermitage the previous day she had chosen parts of the museum we had not previously seen so it was perfect!!
Perfect. We had a very competent and friendly guide. We got in and started the tour before the masses, which gave us room to move about. Small group can also be recommended.
very enjoyable, right level of detail and an ideal introduction. The guide was charming
We were delighted with this tour. Aliona was charming and very knowledgeable and was able to transmit her knowledge to us beautifully. Her English is nigh on perfect. We shall recommend this tour and Aliona to any friends coming to St. Petersburg.

It is really must! Our guide Elena was perfect and she has excellent knowledge. Early access is must in this museum and then you can enjoy the almost empty rooms and all the beauty around. You will see all relevant things from Hermitage within 4 hours. If you like to see the Gold or Diamond rooms please buy tickets immediately after entering to the Hermitage they are only limited numbers and fast are sold out!
Irina was a delight. We enjoyed our tour with her enormously and the 3 hours flew by. She was enthusiastic, knowledgeable and easy to talk to. Her tour provided an overview and orientation which one needs in coming to grips with the vast Hermitage plus her deeper discussion on particular highlights was interesting and filled with insights we otherwise would not have been aware of. This was a terrific tour and we couldn't have had a better guide. TY, Irina.
Irina knew a lot about de history off the Hermitage and his owners. She was very helpfull and knew all the answers to our questions. We highly recommend this guide.
This was wonderful. the company did everything and more to ensure that our tour of the Hermitage was just wonderful. We had the staircase to ourselves-a wonder! they even arranged tickets for us to see the iInoressionists which are now house in a separate building. I couldn't praise them more. Well worth while.
