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

Our visit exceeded all our expectations. Andrey is totally reliable, exceptionally knowledgeable and very accommodating. His preparations and communications prior to our arrival... More

We spent two wonderful days with Andrey. He was very prompt and his English is perfect. His knowledge of St. Petersburg and art history is so vast. We could never have done this trip without his expertise.

My friends and I spent 3 days with Andrey in St. Petersburg. He was sharper than any guide I've spent time with, VERY accommodating and thoughtful and open to questions and discussions and unfailingly polite. I have already recommended him to someone who is heading there.

Andrey is an extremely knowledgeable guide with an amazing grasp of Russian art and history. He is also well organized, knows how to avoid the crowds and is also quite charming. We had 2 day private tour of St. Petersburg with Andrey and his driver and it was a great experience.

Andrey exactly delivered on what his outline of the tour said was going to happen. He was pleased to discuss any issues. He was very prompt at pick up and found ways of getting into and through sights in a VERY timely manner. We felt after the three days that we made the right choice in choosing Andrey! Thanks Andrey... More

He responded very fast and in a few emails we agreed on the details of the tour for Saturday afternoon and Sunday the whole day. When we requested him for ballet tickets he... More
