Excellent, smooth and well organised!
Jun 2021
I contacted Olga Surnova to arrange private visits for me and my family in St Petersburg and Moscow. She was quick to respond on WhatsApp and arranged everything as per my wishes. The tours she had arranged in St Petersburg were very, very well organised. Our tour guide, Oksana was super informative, fun, helpful and approachable.

StPetersburg4u also arranged a private city tour for us in Moscow with a very sweet and informative guide, Vitaly. They also arranged a private transfer for us to Vnukovo as per our request. The best part about them is that they will let you cover many things in just a few hours and sometimes, other tour groups can take 2-3 days to cover those attractions/conduct those same visits.

This company is highly recommended, is very approachable and replies quickly to your doubts and queries. Close your eyes and book with them for a great experience in St Petersburg and Moscow!!

Hermitage, Peterhof, St. Catherines Palace private tour
Jul 2019
We checked and compared several tour agencies, private and non private and St. Petersburg4u came out the best deal -quality price.

Olga was our contact, we gave her the itinerary we wanted, free days off & days we wanted tours and where. private car and also hydro boat trip. All well organised and quick response time.

Guide in St. Petersburg was extremely informative. So much information. Private tour made SUCH A DIFFERENCE. Well worth the cost to avoid long waiting time for entrances and to be able to hear what your guide is saying and to have private interaction time. Pick up and drop off at hotel included.

All 3 palaces were beyond stunning. We live in France, we know palaces. St. Petersburg palaces are spectacular - what work in restauration.

Olga also arranged our day of tours in Moscow as well - metro stations, the Kremlin. There too our guide was very friendly, interesting and provided us with so much information.

we highly recommend this tour agency.

Best Guided Four Day Tour
Aug 2019
Olga from the agency was very helpful at every step of our preparation for the trip and the tour was reasonably priced. Our guide during the tour was Oksana and she is one of the best guides we've every had the pleasure of working with. Helpful, accommodating and extremely knowledgeable. The driver was quiet and efficient. Got us to all the places on our itinerary on time and in comfort.
I strongly recommend them for your St. Petersburg experience.

Best way to see St. Petersburg in a day!
Jul 2019 • Family
We can’t recommend this company enough. We coordinated with Olga who was prompt and so professional. Dasha our guide was wonderful. She was extremely good with our two kids (7 and 9). She kept them engaged with questions and activities. She is so intelligent answering all our questions and giving us a great history of her beautiful city. She was able to slip us into Peterhof and the Hermitage avoiding HUGE lines and tour groups, I still don’t know how she managed that. Thanks to her we were able to see everything we hoped to and SO much more in just a single day. She also takes great pictures, they are the best family pictures we have from the trip! Thank you St. Petersburg 4U we hope to return to Russia one day and use your wonderful company again!

3 days program
Jul 2019 • Friends
Our first time in St. Petersburg. We did not plan to much before because we did not know what to expect from there. Only we wanted to get to know the city with their beautiful sights and with the history as good as possible in 3 days. So we've contacted Olga from "St Petersburg 4U. She could help us with all -very friendly, very professional. We planned the whole tour with St. Petersburg 4U. (Bootstour, Petershof, Hermitage) Even after the first day with Irina (our guide for all tours) we were more than satisfied. The tour itself was very professional planned with pick up from hotel. Irina could give us so many information and did not hesitate to proof if we even listen 🙂. We had a lot of fun beside all that. So we can highly recommend that private tour for couples or small group with even more than a 5Star.

St Petersburg 4 U was Exceptional
May 2019 • Couples
I was on a cruise that had a stop in St Petersburg. I wanted a 2 day tour that would be the highlight of the cruise. After doing a lot of research and checking other companies I settled on this Tour Company. The reason for this was that it was the only company in St Petersburg where I could design my own tour. I was assigned a Driver and Tour Guide. They were at the ship the morning of arrival in a Mercedes. I can not say enough about our Guide, Mira, and Andrie, the driver. Mira was the best and most knowledgeable guide we have ever had. I had booked the Hermitage for four hours and the first day, and another 2 and a half hours the second day. Mira's knowledge of the history and her knowledge of art was incredible.

We also visited the National Museum as well as a number of other attractions. Mira was amazing. At each location, Mira had our tickets, and we fast tracked to the front of the line.

As well as being an incredible tour, the price was comparable with the tours the Cruise Line offered, and that would have been sharing on a 16 passenger bus, with a set itinerary. St Petersburg 4 U is definitely a FULL 5 STAR tour company.

Saint-Petersburg city-tour on foot and metro - Half Day
Dec 2018 • Solo
I had a very nice city-tour with a very friendly and informative tour guide to show me all my favourite touristic attractions in St Petersburg. It included between others the great Cathedrals (Savior and Nicholas), squares (horse statue) and museums (Hermitage). 3 hours at total including metro and walking. I really recommend it.

Excellent. Simply "made" our stay in St. Petersburg
Aug 2018 • Couples
We were in St. Petersburg for two days when our cruise ship docked there. We decided to take a private tour on the first day (city highlights, Hermitage etc.) and took two ship organized, shorter group trips (Pushkin, boat trip, Faberge) on the second day. Day 1 was by far more instructive and enjoyable. With Olga's first class assistance we put together a 6 hour excursion; our guide Alex was simply excellent -- friendly, engaged and knowledgeable. In sum, for a modest price difference you can have a much better experience and leave the bus and the group behind --highly recommended!

St. Petersburg on our own? YES you can do this!
Jul 2018 • Couples
We were a little concerned about trying to tour St Petersburg for 3 days apart from our cruise line's offering. Found St Petersburg 4U here and worked with Olga to create an amazing itinerary that was entirely off the beaten path. We've visited before and did all the "touristy" things but was looking for a unique experience that catered to our tastes. For me we did the Faberge Museum and the ballet. For my husband we did the Artillery Museum and for both of use we did an evening tour of the Hermitage Museum (NO CROWDS!), Yusupov Palace (where Rasputin was murdered) and Russia Art Museum. Both days had us in very impressive restaurants for lunch. Our guides Marie 1 and Marie 2 were unbelievably knowledgeable an incredibly fun to spend the day with. while our driver Vitali in his suit and sleek black Audi made us feel like VIPs all over the city. While our fellow cruisers crammed into buses and waded through crowds, St Petersburg 4U provided us with an amazing two days of comfort and interest. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!
