VERY PLEASURABLE AND A LEARNING EXPERIENCE

OUR TOUR STARTED IN FRONT OF THE HERMITAGE ITSELF BY MEETING OUR APPOINTED TOUR GUIDE MS ALYONA - WE WERE SURPRISED TO LEARN THAT MY WIFE AND I WERE THE ONLY TWO WHO WOULD BE ACCOMPANYING HER - AFTER THE PRELIMINARY INTRODUCTIONS MS ALYONA TOOK US TO THE ENTRANCE OF THE HERMITAGE AND THUS STARTED THE ACTUAL TOUR - IMMEDIATELY WE WERE IN SHE BEGAN EXPLAINING IN VERY GOOD ENGLISH ALL THAT WE SAW - IN SO DOING DEMONSTRATING THE DEPT OF HER KNOWLEDGE OF ALL THAT THERE WAS TO SEE - WE ACCOMPANIED HER AND LISTENED TO HER VARIOUS EXPLANATIONS ON THE MOST IMPORTANT EXHIBITS OF ALL THE COLLECTIONS - THE NUMBER OF EXHIBITS IN THE HERMITAGE IS SO NUMEROUS THAT IT IS SIMPLY IMPOSSIBLE TO VIEW IN ONE VISIT - BUT MS ALYONA DID HER UTMOST TO GIVE US AS MUCH INFORMATION ABOUT ALL THAT WE SAW IN OUR PATH - BEING A CARAVAGGIO AFICIONADO, I ASKED HER IF THERE WAS AT LEAST ONE SUCH PAINTING AND WITHIN THE SPAN OF FIVE MINUTES WE WERE STANDING IN FRONT OF IT - IN SHORT SHE WAS SPLENDID AND WE WERE LUCKY.

Excellent guide provided comprehensive and well-informed tour.

This was an excellent tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable and made sure the group saw key artworks and state rooms. We all had some problems with accessing the guide's commentary using our own phones with the earpieces provided, but once we abandoned these and simply relied on listening to the guide's voice, the issue was resolved. We were very impressed with the guide's knowledge of art history. We would recommend this tour.

Skip in the line ticket for Hermitage museum

It was very good to skip the line to get in. The guide was very diligent to explain and tried to show as much as she could. While the guide was very patient when other group people showed up 20min late, we were a little annoyed because we were not informed how long she would wait for them. I hope the regulation would be written clearly.

An excellent tour of the highlights of the Hermitage.

We had a little group that effectivily passed through the Hermitages highlights. Getting information and seeing things that I could have missed if I went on my own. It was an intensive 3 hours that passed very quickly. And after the tour we could then wonder through the other rooms seeing the objects that interested me.
