Lida was our tour guide and she was AWESOME! She speaks good english and keeps u engaged for 3 hours. She is from St.Petersburg and is very knowledgeable about the city. She has answers to all your questions. Booking was simple on GYG and communication was good prior to the meeting time via whatsapp. I highly recommend this tour.

The walk in chilled weather was amazing one to do. They do as they write “nothing stops this tour”. The guide Lidia was wonderful and made the tour perfect.
