Elizabeth was wonderful! She picked us up right from our hotel. She ensured that we had the most up to date COVID information and even helped us find a location to get tested so that we could see as many sites as possible. She was a fount of information and history, very easy to talk to about any questions that we had. In addition to the key sites like the Church on Spilled Blood, St Issacs, Kazan Church and the Hermitage, Elizabeth also took us to a delicious authentic Russian lunch and wonderful locales for souvenirs (and to warm up) along the way. We felt very safe the whole time. I highly recommend this tour.

We explored the city on foot, guided by Andrey, who showed an incredible depth of knowledge and passion for this beautiful city and its history. We were blessed with blue skies in January and made the most of it. I highly recomnend both Andrey and this one day tour of the city.

We visited Russia during the World Cup, where we recorded interviews with two Friendly Local Guides for our "Dad and Me Love History" podcast series. In St Petersburg, Kate was flexible (our schedule was tight and changed last minute), charming and insightful. Her romantic personality matched St Petersburg beautifully. A poet and devotee of Pushkin's work, Kate's passion and expertise regarding her native city are unsurpassable. We wish we had more time to spend with her. Friendly Local Guides were a pleasure to deal with online (thank you, Alina) and in person. We thoroughly recommend them.
