Our guide Katya was absolutely punctual. She was very friendly and had very good knowledge of the museum. Her English was excellent and she was always ready to help with pictures. The Faberge museum is new, opened only in 2013, but it is a must-visit. The pieces of jewellery and other artefacts by the Faberge company and some other great jewellers of Russia are mind-boggling. The beauty and intricate artwork is just wow. Piece de resistance was the royal easter eggs. I had heard about them, but seeing them is something totally different.

There were two of us and we chose a private tour which turned out to be magical! Our guide, Elena, transported us to another era, in this magnificent house, and brings to life the wonderful objects before us, giving them back their history and their value. We could no longer imagine a successful visit to this museum without Elena. Almost two hours which appeared two minutes. Thank you Elena, who does not hesitate to speak about other places in Saint Petersburg either and advise in all areas

Fascinating tour. Guide was knowledgeable and spoke excellent English. The ownwe of the agency made sure that we were able to meet the guide and followed up with assistance on a couple of other things. Definitely would repeat this experience and work with this agency.

Elena was great company and although it was just my wife and I who were shown around which made it a fairly expensive visit (over (£100) it was a brilliant afternoon and to top it off Elena made some great recommendations.

Irina was on time and very well versed in the treasures at the Fabrege museum. The museum is lovely and the exhibits well displayed. No Hussle and buddle. It was a very calm relaxing afternoon.
