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

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

Andrey was highly recommended by friends. He arranged a 3-day tour of St. Petersburg for our party of 8 that was most enjoyable and informative. 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.
