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

We chose Andrey as we felt he could offer in depth knowledge of Russian history , and life experiences. We were not disappointed. We used his services for only one day, ( although my wife now says that if we go back we should use his services for 2 days) as we wanted to visit an attraction outside St.P. Andrey... More

We booked the services of Andrey for two days in the city after reading his reviews in Tripadvisor and were highly satisfied with his services. We could see many buildings and places and understand a bit more about the history of the country and the city itself. He organized the tours as we had no previous expectations and he fully... More

Thereafter we had a 1:1 personal tour of St Petersburg around all of the major sites. he is extremely well read in the history of the city and... More

My friend and I came for only 3 days to St Petersburg, and neither she nor I have been there before. Andrey managed to conduct a very interesting, thorough and exciting quick tour around the city, showing not only the obvious tourist sights, but also the less developed areas. This way we got a chance to understand the ambiance of... More

This was my second time visiting St. Petersburg. I used Andrey the first time for 2 days, and this time for 1 day. On the first trip, Andrey provided touring and transportation for 2 of my 4 days. He saved me money by helping me find a wonderful hotel near the Hermitage and the ballet, and suggested I would not... More

We would like to provide a brief perspective on our recent private tour of St. Petersburg by Andrey and staff. We arranged for the tour in advance and we were able to tailor the visit by way of emails prior to arriving. Andrey and Dilya were excellent, and the slightly extra cost for not having to wait for all the... More
