The group size was small, which meant I was able to ask as many questions as I wanted. Anastasia was a knowledgeable guide and told us many interesting facts and showed us several places of historic importance. Getting a perspective... More

We came for 1 full week only to get to know with this beautiful city, and decided to take few trips with this great tour guides company. Till now we enjoyed 2 of their tours with 2 different great guides. The guides are very knowledgeable, friendly and patient. We highly recommend everyone to join them!

Very interesting and informative tour! As all the attractions and sights lie quite close to each other, you don't have to walk far during this wonderful 2½-hour-tour. The guide Vlad knew everything about the history of St. Petersburg and all its beautiful and remarkable Buildings. He was extremely helpful and entusiastic and spoke fluent English in a clear manner.

Vlad was an excellent guide offering interesting historical stories about many of the sights throughout St. Petersburg. He was very helpful about sharing information on getting around, prices, opening & closing times of museums, boats, churches etc. This is a not to be missed tour - there's always some new insights to be learned. Thanks Vlad.

Vlad was an amazing storyteller with just the right amount of information about the city and the history. The Tour was 2.5 hours long and covered the main sightseeings. It put life on the stunning buildings with the stories behind it. Couldn't recommend it enough!

I went on this tour during my stay in St. Petersburg. Anastasia, our tour guide, was great and very knowledgeable about the city and its history. Everything went smoothly. We arrived in Palace Square about 15 minutes ahead of time. There was no tour guide when we showed up, but she arrived about 5 minutes prior to the start of... More
