Guide-Guru was fantastic. Great guide and driver. Vera, our guide, showed enormous knowledge of Russian and city history answering every single question we had, besides her great sympathy. Beautiful city and awesome tour.

Very impressed with this company , Arranged all on line and amended itinerary to suit our own interests. Met at the pier and all exactly as stated in advance. We flew to Moscow ( despite a cancelled flight) and were met at the airport by Syvetta who started talking us through the history of the city as we walked out... More

We truly enjoyed our time with Catherine Pavlova! She was very pleasant and knowledgeable. Catherine was a real trouper and made our visit to the many sites, palaces and areas very educational but fun. Catherine has so much knowledge in her head. I also want to point out how flexible and helpful Natalia was in arranging our tour. We also... More

Found Guide-guru on trip advisor. Very easy set up of private tours with owner Natalia. All Visas taken care of and she even arranged for tickets and driver for ballet while in St. Petersburg. Much better value than cruise excursions not to mention no buses and waiting for anyone. Were met promptly in terminal by Tatiana and driver for 2... More

Ada(2 days) & Kate (1 day) gave us everything we asked for, needed, or wanted -- knowledge, expertise, flexibility, personality, and attention. From everything we experienced, no traveller will fail to be satisfied with this guide service.

Feedback is really important as it helps us to improve our service for clients in future. We now realise, that in the future when we have a... More

We chose Guide Guru based on other Trip Advisor and Cruise Critic feedback. Our two day tour was superbly organised from start to finish. We tailor-made some elements, as our teenage children had studied Russian history for several years so we wanted to include some specific museums for them. It all worked extremely well. Highlights were Peterhof, the Hermitage and... More

The tour guide and the driver were both excellent, nothing was any trouble to them and the guides command of the English language was very good. The vehicle used was tops with plenty of room for the five of us in our group. Would recommend to anyone and far cheaper than he same tour offered from the cruise ship.

We booked a 2 day tour from a cruise ship. There were 6 in our party and we had the exclusive services of Svetlana (our tour guide) and a comfortable mini-bus and driver. Svetlana is really lovely! She speaks excellent English and is so knowledgable - we asked loads of questions and not one went unanswered. St Petersburg is a... More

While on a Baltic Sea cruise, we had two days in SP and decided to go with a private tour group rather than the ship's tour. Guide Guru was perfect! There is a max of 12 guests on small vans comfortable and easier to get around and park than the big buses. Our guide, Aada was informative and very knowledgeable... More
