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.
Our guide was at the hotel lobby five minutes before the appointed time. We were allocated a comfortable and clean car. Both the driver and the guide were very friendly. In fact they gave us their umbrellas when it started raining. The guide spoke excellent English and knew the city well. She showed all the important locations and helped with the pictures also. A very comfortable and nice way to see the city.
great way to get an overview of the key sites of St.Petersburg, Valeria was an excellent and very knowledgeable guide. Everything was very well organised, and Andrey was a very good driver, and the minibus was very comfortable. would not hesitate to recommend.
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.
Its was a really nice boat tour! Recommend ! Only at night is a bit cold , please bring some warm clothes.
