Excellent guide and professional driver in a very nice vehicle

I arrived in St. Petersburg on a cruise ship and selected this tour rather than going with a cruise ship excursion with a bus full of people. More specifically I wanted something that would better fir my partners limited mobility and allow him to tailor the amount of walking and sightseeing. Our guide was an absolute wealth of knowledge and always made us feel in control of the tour while accommodating my partners limitations. Her English skills were on par with any tour guide in the US. We had a very nice luxury Mercedes van which felt as if it had just come off the car lot. Our driver was very professional and made every effort to drop us off as close to the different venues as was possible and was ready and waiting at the exits. I even made multiple comments that it felt as though he had spots right in front reserved for him. I would recommend this tour to anyone looking for something more private and personalized and can say it was well worth the cost. 5 star service & tour.

So glad we got the guided tour of The Hermitage.

Our guide Tim was wonderful. He navigated the building with much grace and poise. He was courteous and assisted other people that were not even part of our tour. His commentary on the history, art and architecture was very informative. He told little jokes along the way. We all had an ear phone and audio box to hear everything very clearly. We skipped the line at the beginning and could not believe how many people were already waiting. For your first time going to the Hermitage make sure you pay the extra for this tour.

Great 2 days with the most amazing guide Masha!

The activity was exactly as decribe, our guide was exceptionnal and the price was good for two days. We were on a cruise, no problem to meet our guide after the customs. We were only two and still the tour was not cancel. We strongly recommand, our tour was in french with Masha (Maria). Thank you to Masha, you made our visit in Saint-Petersburg memorable.

Learnt more about art today than the last 49 years thanks to Tim

Recommend for independent travellers. Targeted all the significant exhibits. Great duration and detail for peeps like us that aren’t culture vultures. Anecdotes were funny & informative. Pace & timing was keen and managed to only run into congestion towards the last 25%. Eg. Cruisers & selfie sticks.
