We had a wonderful tour of the Hermitage with our very informative tour guide Lydia. I had just booked the trip the previous day before leaving home. The confirmation e-mail tells you to phone the company to confirm your location. This is important and would advise you to do so.

Hello there! Thank you so much for your kind words! We are delighted you had such a great tour in St Petersburg! Thank you so much for choosing our company. The comfort of our guests is extremely important to us. That’s why we try to create unique and personalized private experiences at the most affordable price. Lydia is not a big fan of groups and she is famous for skipping the lines even when it is almost not possible. It is great that you could bypass larger groups and move at the pace that was comfortable for you. It always feels good to get to the place/room before others :) For us it is more important than anything else that people leave my tours happy and satisfied. We wish you lots of fun on your journeys and hopefully we will see you on your next visit to St. Petersburg! Meanwhile, please take care and stay safe! HOROSHO team
