This was a private family tour of Catherine the Great's Summer Palace, the Hermitage and the Winter palace with hotel pickup and drop off in a clean late model minivan The tour was efficiently run with punctual pickup and drop off at the various locations. There was a seperate driver and tour guide. The guide gave an oustanding background to the Romanov family which resembled the detail of a Russian novel. This was as well as information specific to various exhibits. We had teenage children and our guide initially sanitised parts of the story but we indicated we were happy to tell it as it was and she happily complied. Our children were not upset.
As a first timer in SPB, I would highly recommend to available this half day tour with a private guide Everything went smooth and Julia was so punctual, accommodating and a very professional guide. Julia has showed what we want to see then after that we feel more comfortable roaming around by our own.
Ease of organisation, communication and in-depth knowledge all helped to make this one of the most enjoyable experiences during our stay in St Pete's. Thank you to Ksenia for being punctual, pleasant and patient with all our questions.
Our guide Marina was great - good English, flexible regarding our wishes tailoring tour to suit, informative, and delivered an informative and interesting tour with personal charm
Our driver is so accommodating and helpful,as my partner was too cold to get out of the car, he was trying to turn the car to help her Get a better view the scenery.
