We have recently returned from a Baltic cruise and chose to see St Petersburg with Andrey rather than with the ships shore excursion. This was a wise choice indeed! Andrey has an excellent command of English and real in -depth knowledge of St Peterburg and all that it has to offer. We were two couples and with Andrey as our... More

Andrey was the guide for our group of 5 during a two day visit in August 2014 and he was superb! We were able to stop at many places that a large bus tour wouldn't be able to go and we appreciated Andrey's flexibility. When we asked to stop somewhere for a cup of coffee he took us to a... More

In addition to the tour, he also arranged an evening at the ballet to see Swan Lake. Andrey speaks excellent English and has a passion for Russian history, art and architecture that made our visits... More

I have recently come back from a Baltic cruise which stopped in St. Petersburg for 2 days. My father had used Andrey a few years ago and thoroughly recommended him. I was delighted Andrey was able to accommodate us. I wanted to see the 'hidden' St. Petersburg on foot. Andrey designed our own customised walking tour, taking us by public... More

Andrey is the best tour guide ever. His English is very good and he kept up with our every wish of places for us to see. We could not have been happier. Our driver was there like magic. Spasibo, Andrey.

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

He always responded immediately with helpful information and good ideas. Everything went very smoothly on... More
