The entrance to the museum is no problem, the audio guide is guided at the beginning of everything along the route, it is inconvenient, if you receive a call, you answer, then you need to download the application again. From the middle we lost our way through the halls of Italian painting. It is advisable in the Hermitage itself to add additional signs to route 1 or 2. Further, the inspection was carried out independently not along the route.

It is not very easy to buy e-tickets. First you need to download the application, register, select the date and time - this is, in principle, a standard procedure. I thought that Everything would be done through the site, where it would be necessary to indicate the date, time and mail - where to send tickets. But no. Then you had to contact GetYourGide via watsap? exchange messages. Download tickets through the application, at least for me, failed. Picked up tickets through watsap. At the entrance to the Hermitage, there were no problems at the control. Overall, good.

Things are good. We were allowed inside with a ticket in pdf format. The audio guide itself is not bad, but there is no description of most of the individual exhibits. Not very convenient navigation, you have to switch between the museum map and the audio guide. Otherwise, I liked everything. Walked for 3 hours.
