Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I can say that it was an excellent tour. Something that one must take if one wants to understand and enjoy the Hermitage to the maximum.
Tim is a brilliant guide. The 3 hour long tour never felt boring and exhausting. He was full of interesting information. Well done and please keep up the good work.

Tim has been our leading guide for the Hermitage tour for a few years and never fails to surprise our clients with the most interesting tours.

Visited the circus on 26th of December. A family from England. All went well apart from being shouted at in the presence of my kids at the cloak room of the circus building. We were with a push chair, and had followed all the instructions to leave a push chair in the room 106. Please note we arrived early enough to follow the enhanced checks due to covid etc. After patiently following all the entry procedures, we went to give a push chair at room 106 as instructed by the lady who checked tickets. As we were preparing to enter the room 106,a lady appeared and in raised voice started to say that we should not be here and that it is her working place. When we tried to find out who she is, she was just laughing. Also we pointed out that she puts us at risk by talking to us with her face mask not covering her nose, she just laughed again…Later we found out that she is managing a kids attraction named a time machine. But she did not introduce herself to us, and was preventing us from leaving the push chair as instructed by the ladies at the entrance. And behaving terribly in front of our kids. The Pieter the Great show in the circus was great, but this experience of leaving a push chair in the circus building was terrible. Watch out for this ignorant lady while there, as she does not wear a mask properly, and just ignore here. We also raised this bad experience with the circus via email, but after three weeks have not heard a word from them.

Our guide Tim is brilliant! He is very knowledgeable and helped us provide all the details of the tour and great introduction about the history. Very informative. It’s a little over three hours to make a great start to understand and worth the cost. Highly recommended.

I requested for a tour at short notice and Marina’s team accommodated the same.

Tour guide Ms Valeria shared details through the route. Also during the tour of palace she was provided many intricate details which only a seasoned guide like her can provide.

Many thanks for a wonderful experience. Highly recommend.

Our guide Valeria was fantastic - in addition to being incredibly knowledgeable about the Hermitage building and the art, she was so enthusiastic which really made the experience. She took us to parts she thought we should see (which had we gone alone we would have missed!) and also asked us what sort of things we were interested in and adapted the tour to suit that, and presented it all so so we’ll! We really loved the tour, and would recommend you do the Hermitage with a guide (such as Valeria) as it is impossible to take in alone!

Huge thank you to Tim for a great tour through the Hermitage. It is so huge and packed with treasures that I think without Tim guiding us through select pieces in each room, we would have been totally overwhelmed. Tim was very engaging, clearly knowledgeable and managed to bring to life many of the pieces through their history and interesting related stories. Thank you again Tim, we loved the Hermatige and your stories.
