I booked this tour to make sure we got to see the items of interest at the Hermitage. We were lucky, that as it was February, there were only 2 of us on the tour. Our guide, Olga, was friendly, knowledgable and obviously had a passion for art. We learnt a lot on the tour about the history of St. Petersburg, the history of the Hermitage and about the items on display. We are looking forward to our next tour with Olga as our guide.

Our guide Maria has done a great job in showing us the Winter Palace with good English. It is lucky that only our group joined today so that we can get a private tour! Maria is professional and informative and she leads us to a fruitful cultural tour this morning. Time flies with her good work!
