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

Simply put, I have never found a better guide. He customizes his tours to the customers' expectations. He you have no expectations, he will still make it happen for you.

Andrey did an excellent job of showing us St. Petersburg. He was very well spoken about his subjects and knew a lot more about art then we expected. He has a very keen knowledge of Russian history and is very open to questions and changes to the itinerary. I would highly recommend utilizing his services for a visit to Russia.

Andrey arranged two days of tours of the Peterhof and Pushkin/Pavlovsk for my mom and me. He and his driver arrived on time and I actually enjoyed the driving time as much as the palace tours as Andrey pointed out interesting features along the way. I especially enjoyed the gardens at Pavlovsk. I would recommend Andrey and his services highly.

Andrey is a mine of knowledge - took us out for a great 3 hour tour of some areas that were of particular interest to us!

We could not have had the experience we did had it not been for Andrey and Dylia (sp?). Andrey is a first class guide as well as Dylia. We learned more about early Russia in two days than we had in years of school. Andrey suggested an itinerary that was perfect for the four of us. We even had time... More

Andrey helped our group of 4 English tourists design 2 days of visits to St Petersburg sights - to Peterhof and Catherine's Palace. He was a first class guide, spoke fluent English and had excellent knowledge of history of the sights. He suggested an itinerary that saved a double journey towards the airport. Would have no hesitation in recommending him... More
