Following very warm recommendation of our friends, we hired Andrey as our guide for 3 days in St Petersburg. It was really a fantastic and very informative experience. Andrey speaks wonderful English and has endless knowledge in history, art, architecture and more. He picked us up righ on time every day and we saw a lot of this beautiful city.... More

We were a party of ten, spending three days in St. Petersburg, eager to grasp as much as possible of the city's treasures. Only by touring with Andrey was it possible to see and learn so much about this amazing city. The logistic part was perfect, the driver reliable and punctual, the car comfortable, but the highlight was Andrey, who... More

My wife and I spent three days last week with Andrey and his trusty driver Igor. He would meet us at the cruise ship around 9:00 each morning and bring us back in the mid to late afternoon depending on our preference. He took us to all the important sites and we were continually impressed with his knowledge of all... More

My wife and I did a Baltic cruise in July with a 3 day shore stay in St Petersburg. We had engaged Andrey on a fiends recommendation. He effortlessly organized Visas , ballet tickets and three very interesting days of touring. He is very knowledgeable about St Peterburg, its history and art and made our visits to the museums, churches... More

I was in email correspondence a lot with Andrey before our tour because I had specific requests. For instance for the ballet we needed aisle seats He took a lot of trouble researching and arranging these.. We also needed some different things on the tours. He always responded immediately with helpful information and good ideas. Everything went very smoothly on... More

We were introduced to Andrey by family members who had used his services before. Unfortunately he was unavailable on the dates when we were in St Petersburg but recommended his colleague, Dilya. Up until the time we left for Russia I had numerous, helpful email correspondence with Andrey with suggestions for an itinerary which would suit us. We met Dilya... More

Just had a wonderful day trip to Tsarskoe Selo with Andrey. He's extremely knowledgeable and easy to talk to, fascinating insight into all things Russian. Was great to have him there to navigate the city public transport system too. Recommended.

Andrey showed us around St Petersburg for two full days. His knowledge was amazing. Whatever questions we asked he always had a detailed answer that was not only interesting, but informative. He has a relaxed manner which results in you wanting to listen to what he has to say. Unlike other guides we've used he doesn't talk at you. I... More

We booked a 4-hour tour of the historic centre with Andrey for our first day in St Petersburg and glad we did. It was a good, quick introduction to the city's orientation, history, architecture, metro, and just meeting a knowledgeable resident whose own family history reflects that of the city. Andrey was very responsive to emails and questions prior to... More

A friend of ours from St. Petersburg recommended Andrey, and we were NOT disappointed. One day we did Peterhof and Tsarskoe Celo (Catherine's Palace), and it was clear that Andrey knew his history - particularly vs. an earlier guide we had who couldn't even tell us which czars were in what order! We were a group of four, and on... More
