We were very satisfied with this two day tour of St Petersburg. Our guide, Ada, was very informative. She was especially good as an art guide in the Hermitage museum.

We used Guide Guru for a 3 day private tour of St. Petersburg. Maria was an excellent Guide, the driver was superb and working with Natalia to organize and customize the tour was convenient and easy. Maria spoke perfect English. She was friendly, organized, and was very knowledgeable about all the sites we visited. She did an excellent job pacing... More

As three solo travelers we were slightly hesitant to do St. Petersburg on our own. After much research into different guide companies in St. Petersburg we decided on Guide-Guru. What a great decision. All of the correspondences with Natalia prior to arrival were prompt and thorough. We decided on the intensive two day tour and Natalia was even able to... More

We visited Russia after a package tour with 40 travelling companions through the Balkans (not booked through Guide Guru) where our "local experts" were a hit and miss affair. In Moscow and St Petersburg we were travelling solo and had arranged guides and tours through Guide Guru. There was no 'miss' with the two guides, only 'hits'. Both were fabulous... More

Many of us feel a little uncomfortable booking a tour in Russia with an unknown agency; but Guide Guru makes it feel easy and safe. No deposit in advance, you pay sometime after the tour has started so there's no wasting time when you get off your ship. Our tour guide was wonderful, had a good command of English and... More

Hi Natalie, We thoroughly enjoy this the 2-day Guide Guru tour to St Petersburg ably guided by Maria Alexeeva on 8-9 September 2014. Although we were novices in Russian history, Maria's excellent English and systematic explanation provided us a good understanding of Russian history and the period leading to the Revolution. Maria has demonstrated exceptional detailed knowledge in each place... More

You sure did an excellent job in arranging all those tours for our group. Transportation, reliable drivers, excellent... More

This was an excellent tour from start to finish. Obviously, I won't go into the details of the various sights, except to say that over the course of two days we managed to fit in a huge amount - all of the major places of interest. The original booking was very simple - absolutely no hassle and no money was... More

My wife and I did a Private tour using Guide Guru in both Moscow (from St.Petersburg) and a tour in St.Petersburg. I would have to say that we were very impressed, Natalia put our tours together using our preferences and both Guides and Drivers were excellent. We saw everything that we had on our list. Both guides kept us informed... More
