St Petersburg: Half–Day Cathedrals Walking Tour
- Skip the ticket line
- Duration: 4 hours
A chance to walk to the three cathedrals and have other buildings of interest pointed out on the way. Our guide also told us where the points of interest we wanted to visit were located, which was really helpful. We learnt a lot about Russian history - hopefully after all the tours we've done we should remember at least some of it. Beware the people in animal suits at the meeting point, Alexander's column, in Palace Square - if they offer to take a selfie say 'no'! ~They don't tell you how much it will cost.
Our guide Roufina was very kindness and she is very professionnal . She knows very well the history of Russia and she gave us very complete informations and she answered to all our questions with sweet delicatesse. And she speaks very fluently French language which is different from others guide . She love her job and contact with people. Next time when we will come back to St. Petersburg we will ask to your company to be with her for our excursions . Best regards Thierry and laurence
We had a great time with Alexandra, she was a constant source of knowledge and insight. She was vey friendly and very happy to answer our endless questions about all the places we visited. The weather was really cold and she regularly checked to see that we were ok. In addition she recommended some sights to see by ourselves and gave us some excellent restaurant suggestions. She really brought our trip to St Petersburg alive and we would very much recommend her ;) Thank you.
Our guide was a wonderful young lady who knew her material quite well. The cathedrals are so marvellous, and one can never see them in one day without a guide, except in the unlikely event that you know your way around St. Petersburg. It really is also a walking tour of town. We stopped at some extra sites as well, and our guide left us at the wonderful fast food restaurant Teremok. She made sure we had English menus and could order and then set off to her next tour.
We learned a lot about Russian history from our guide and she navigated the crowds well so that we got a comprehensive experience at each site. She was a late arriving at our meeting point. Another tour guide kindly called the tour office to confirm she was still coming.
