We visited Saint Petersburg during the World Cup and I was worried that we wouldn't be able to schedule a time to visit The Hermitage with a tour. It was a little tricky to find their office but once we found the Classic Tours office, just as a heads up, you'll have to walk into an office building, and tell the receptionist you are looking for Classic Tours, she will let you through a secured gate into an office looking building. When we got into the Classic Tour office we were asked what days/time we were available for a guided tour at The Hermitage and they contacted us via WhatsApp within a few hours with a scheduled time to meet our tour guide. To our surprise, my husband and I met our tour guide, Svetlana, and thought we'd be in a group but it was just the two of us which made it very personal. Svetlana was very knowledgeable and asked us what we wanted to see and what we were interested in seeing and knew exactly which to go and avoid the massive crowds. The service was great and I enjoyed our very personal tour of The Hermitage with Svetlana and Classic Tours.

This was our first visit to Saint Petersburg and wanted to see everything as smoothly as possible therefore we did this through this company. It saved any hassle of obtaining visas etc and it went very well. Once through Border Control and the unfriendly staff there, we were greeted onto our coach by our guide who was great. You have to bear in mind that if you're doing the two day tour, they are long as there's lots to see and it can mean getting into the coach at about 7.00 am, but well worth it. Plenty of walking but the architecture is stunning

There is nothing bad to say about them. Our guided tour with Julia was just amazing, I have never seen such knowledge and passion in what a person does like she has. She has the ability to make you love everything you are seeing. Damian was our driver, just amazing, giving advices, helping us in everything we needed. I would repeat with them without any kind of doubt.

All excursions from cruise ships tend to be too short and barely scratch the surface, but it was nice to tour the city by bus as it was raining that day. We also got to visit a tourist gift shop filled with icons, nested dolls, and other souvineers. Our guide spoke good English and told us a lot about the city. Going through immigration was a little unnerving. The officials were very officious. Virtually no eye contact, no greeting, just examined our passports, stamped them, and waved us on. It was well worth visiting this historic city, and it would be even better to have more time.
