Our first time visit to St Petersburg was made all the more interesting exciting and informative thanks to the personal recommendation, from a friend, who suggested I use Andrey as a guide . He "taylor made" our trip to include all the highlights I had requested plus a few more when... More

We had only a few days in St. Petersburg and Andrey managed to give us a very good impression of this city with all his places of interest. As we left St. Petersburg we had the feeling to know the city very well. We never had to stay in a line, because he already had organized the tickets before. Once... More

I grew up in Russia and had been to Leningrad / Saint Petersburg many times before. But this year, I took my girlfriend Sandra who had never been to Russia before and doesn't speak Russian, so we needed a guide to help her make the most out of this trip. Andrey created for us a very dense and interesting two... More

We had seen most of the major sights in St. Petersburg on a previous trip and Andrey made special efforts to show us new and interesting places not seen by most tourists. Two of our favorites were the two St. Nickolas churches. He made sure we visited one during a service so that we could hear the magnificence music. Another... More

We booked Andrey on the recommendation of friends who had also done a Baltic Cruise a couple of years before. He was most helpful in coming up with an itinerary and in fact on the actual two days he was flexible enough to adapt the order or events around the weather forecast which meant that our canal trip was dry...

Andrey is an absolutely great guide. His knowledge is far more than skin-deep. Time and time again we'd ask him a question about something we were driving by, a piece of art that was in a side room, or even something in the landscape, and he'd always have a most thorough answer. His English is wonderful as is his ability... More

We visited St. Petersburg mid August 2015 on a cruise. We had a two full day touring with Andrey. This included a hydrofoil ride to Peterhoff which we really enjoyed. It also included a tour of St. Petersburg in the evening after we had dinner, it was nice to see the center of the city all lit up, it's nice... More

We had a group tour (18) for 2 days last month in St Petersburg that was the absolute highlight of our trip! Andrey took us everywhere we wished to go and was most knowledgable about every amazing site we saw. He was thorough and considerate of us all keeping up and his commentary was informative and interesting. We enjoyed authentic... More

We took a baltic cruise with one of the major cruise lines that spent two days in St Petersburg. Friends of ours recommended Andrey, so we booked a private tour for the four of us. Andrey did a terrific job at half the cost and with twice the personal attention of a tour booked through the cruise company. He took... More
