Amazing Experience
I cannot recommend Best Guides highly enough. Our tour guide Irene brought St Petersburg and it’s history alive for us. We loved every minute of it. Our driver Volodya was great too - ensuring we were comfortable throughout our 2 day tour. Don’t miss out!

Amazing history brought alive by our guide. Well organised tour company.
Dec 2019
Our group of 6 Aussies booked the 2 day White days package as we didn't know St Petersburg or the language. Dariya was our contact before we left and answered many of our questions and was extremely well organised. Our guide during the tour was Irina and we had such a good time it was hard to say goodbye. She learnt our names and interests early on so when we visited spots she could point out particular sights for each individual. (She gave us a full history of the royal family so by the end of it we were up to speed with who liked, didn't like or disposed of who). The tour gave us enough time at each location and Irina happily answered all our questions along with giving information. She gladly made restaurant recommendations based on our interests and we followed up several and really enjoyed them. We would all highly recommend Best Guides St Petersburg for tours.

Great tour with our guide Svetlana!
Dec 2019
We weren’t sure whether to book a private tour or not for seeing St Petersburg, but we’re so glad we did, and with Best Guides! It was a great way to get around and our guide on both days, Svetlana, was excellent. She is very experienced as a guide and very knowledgeable about all the history of St Petersburg. We learned so much from her as we toured the city, the Hermitage and Catherine Palace. Thankyou Svetlana! We would highly recommend Best Guides.

A great way to explore the main sights of St. Petersburg
Oct 2019
We saw so much in our two days with Elena and Oksana. It was such a treat to be driven around in a warm and comfortable car and taken right up close to many of the most beautiful sights in St Petersburg. It was great to be able to skip the queues and to go straight in to Catherine Palace, the Hermitage and the Church on Spilled Blood. We asked many questions and Elena answered all of them patiently and professionally. She also included an unscheduled stop to visit the statue of Dmitriy Mendeleev that my husband, a Chemistry teacher, was keen to see.
Some people were surprised that we were visiting St. Petersburg in October but for us it worked out really well. The weather was not too cold and there was just a little snow which was beautiful rather than problematic. Furthermore, the museums and palaces were far less busy than they are in the summer. I thoroughly recommend this tour as a great way to see a lot in a short space of time. Also, having paid for the tour beforehand, our holiday spending money seemed to go further as entrance fees etc are all included.

Dear DebbieNix Thank you so much for taking time to post this review. I’m very pleased you enjoyed your time with our guide Elena Gumennay and our driver Oksana. Elena is one of the very best guide not only in our company but in our city in general, she works for us for more than 10 years already and we all are very proud to have her in our team. Thank you for mentioning our driver Oksana. She just started to work with us but everyone likes this young and charming lady-driver. I’m absolutely agree with you – October is a good month to visit St. Petersburg ( of course we can’t promise good weather in October but we can’t promise it in June as well). Thank you for mentioning it here on TA. It will be useful for future travelers. Best regards, Masha Vankova, Best Guides Team

Wonderful winter tour of St. Petersburg
Dec 2018
Winter is a great time to travel to St. Petersburg! My guide Elena from the company Best Guides showed me all the main attractions of this beautiful city. It was not very cold, but a lot of snow. Palaces and parks of St. Petersburg looked magical! Thank you Elena for interesting stories, for sharing her love for the city with us! I recommend all tours of this company!

Fantastic tour with a wonderful guide
Mar 2018 • Friends
First, I have to give props to Natasha for setting up our tour. We changed our tour so many times, I would not have blamed her for throwing up her hands and giving up on us. But she didn't.

Our tour was wonderful, our guide was SO SO SO knowledgeable about EVERYTHING that I have to be honest, I don't quite remember her name - Helena?

Anyway, she knew everything about everything, could answer any question, and was enchanting! I learned so much about the time, the period, the people, and the artwork... Helena was able to put everything together really well.

I do have to say that my 27 year old son was a little bit distracted - too much time in the art museums but that was probably my fault for not understanding that.

Dear Karen F thank you! Thank you for the good words about Natasha. She is our best manager in correspondence. Yes, your guide was Helena Zaitseva. It's a double pleaser for me to know you liked her. Due to some reasons she doesn't work with us to often but she is very good friend of mine and I'm just happy you like her. I've already called her and let her know about this review. I hope you and your son will return back to Russia. I know boys of this age very often are not too keen on art. It's normal. But with course of time the situation will be different. Best regards, Masha Vankova

Wonderful Experience
I took the white day’s tour which included 3 half-day tours: hermitage, City tour with visit a church and visit to Catherine palace. My guide Elena Zaretskaya was friendly, knowledgeable and very passionate about her city. She made few great recommendations in terms of sights to visit and where to eat. I had a great time! Highly recommended!

Service with a smile and a great guide
Dec 2017 • Couples
I only started inquiring two days before we left and wrote Masha. She immediately answered. Within a few hours everything was arranged. Our guide Elana Zaretskaya was waiting for us. She was amazing. Full of interesting stories. We were also so lucky with the weather. We spent 2 days together. We added extra to the white days tours package. They were also so accommodating and when we asked to have a day between they were happy to do this. We had fun as the places were Empty and even had a waltz in the ballroom of Catherine Palace. Elana said she had never seen it like this. Highly recommend. I also highly recommend coming in winter. A great experience.
