    Hi in Moscow I got a card to go around in saint Petersburg apart from the blunder on the part of Getyourguide cancellation of my pass the pass was ok. Unfortunately the new one I had to paid was in a form of a booklet in which you had to tear sections in order to use. That was very inconvenient. Also instead of looking for the place of collection you should have an office in the airport. The time for collection was also bad, 11 am is very late.

    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

There were two of us and we chose a private tour which turned out to be magical! Our guide, Elena, transported us to another era, in this magnificent house, and brings to life the wonderful objects before us, giving them back their history and their value. We could no longer imagine a successful visit to this museum without Elena. Almost two hours which appeared two minutes. Thank you Elena, who does not hesitate to speak about other places in Saint Petersburg either and advise in all areas

I liked the excursion very much! Worth the money. The audio guide speaks clearly, interestingly and constructively. There is a great opportunity to calmly examine the exhibit and move at your own pace, switching the excursion to the next lot. There is no group crush, if you do not understand something, you can rewind and listen to it again. The emphasis is well placed on the details of the exhibits, historical notes. I advise!

Elena was great company and although it was just my wife and I who were shown around which made it a fairly expensive visit (over (£100) it was a brilliant afternoon and to top it off Elena made some great recommendations.

It is good value for money! Egg-cellent and eggs-traordinary showcase of the Imperial Easter eggs, other valuable treasures and fine arts!
