Overall rating

3.5 / 5

based on 2 reviews

We booked this tour with an english speaking guide to make sure we understood what we were seeing. Well worth it. You could try doing it independently but you would miss so much information. Our guide Olga arrived and was excellent from the very outset. Her knowledge and passion for the tour was exceptional. Peter and Paul fortress excellent, followed by church of the spilled blood and onto St Isaac cathedral. Although we were the only two on the tour we found Olga made us feel like a member of her own family when it came to stop for a traditional russian lunch. When it came to the highlight of the tour which was the Hermitage museum this is where the expert guide Olga made the tour worth every penny. Her knowledge as we said earlier was brilliant. Booking through Get your guide was the first time we have booked experiences online but will definitely be using this website in the future. Rob and Vanessa Newell

Our guide, Olga, was fantastic! She was extremely knowledgeable, spoke excellent English, and knew just how to get us into all the places we booked with ease. There were only seven of us on our excursion so we were able to interact with her and get all questions answered. Of all our excursions, this St Petersburg was the best!

I had a great tour and a very knowledgable kind guide tour Irina. Everything went according to the program and in a friendly way. I really recomend to do this 2 days tour. We cover the main highlights of Saint Petersburgh. Get your guide is a excelent application. Thank you. Isabel
