We booked this tour with an english speaking guide to make sure we understood what we were seeing. Well worth it. You could try doing it independently but you would miss so much information. Our guide Olga arrived and was excellent from the very outset. Her knowledge and passion for the tour was exceptional. Peter and Paul fortress excellent, followed by church of the spilled blood and onto St Isaac cathedral. Although we were the only two on the tour we found Olga made us feel like a member of her own family when it came to stop for a traditional russian lunch. When it came to the highlight of the tour which was the Hermitage museum this is where the expert guide Olga made the tour worth every penny. Her knowledge as we said earlier was brilliant. Booking through Get your guide was the first time we have booked experiences online but will definitely be using this website in the future. Rob and Vanessa Newell

St. Petersburg: 8-Hour Grand Tour Reviewed by

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

Alexandra was knowledgeable, friendly and it was a great experience

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.
