Note: This is a pre-visit review of the Planning Services offered by Best Guides. We are 14 active seniors, a group of friends and veteran travelers going, many for the second time, to visit St Petersburg for a week to see that beautiful and historic city in more depth than the usual cruise schedule allows. I booked both hotel (3Mosta)... More

Thanks to You, Elena, we have discovered Saint Petersburg and suburbs with its numerous palaces and other beautiful things to be seen. The 6 days programme has been really well balanced. Elena that's: kindness, competence, humour, attention, implication. She knows everything about Saint Pet. Elena, we are really grateful to you for these visits with your kindness and humor! When...

We spent 3 days with Larisa, and driver Alexander in September. The experience could not have been better. They were informative, and fun. We had 2 days and 1 evening of the recommended places to see, and our 3rd day was spent as a local. I highly recommend this wonderful group of ladies. The ease of getting off the ship... More

My wife and I (mid 70s)recently spent a week in St Petersburg on our own, wanting more time to see everything we could than allowed by cruise ship schedules and crowds. Guided tours seemed expensive but the one we took with Best Guides to Catherine's palace and Pushkin was more than worth it. As prearranged by email, our guide Inna... More

We had Olga as our guide. She is just the type of tour guide that we like. Friendly but not overly friendly. Share information readily but not excessively talkative. Speaks softly but clearly. Paid our meal for us in rubles as the store didn't accept credit card and we didn't have rubles (we paid her back in usd). Let us... More

I had received many confirmations concerning my schedule of what was included with the cruise. Dariya, who is wonderful, quickly replied with itineraries and pricing working with the... More

We recently spent 4 days, 5 nights in St. Petersburg and were lucky enough to get Olga Melnik as our guide. She was very professional, funny and thorough. She always turned up on time and was able to get us everywhere we had booked. Her general knowledge as well as interesting "background" stories kept us all interested, all day. We... More

We contacted Best Guides for our visit to St. Petersburg and were delighted with their service. Dariya worked with us to build a tour that met our needs and time line. Olga was a wonderful guide.

We thoroughly recommend this company. Dariya put together a wonderful one day itinerary, the guide and driver were excellent and were very flexible in adjusting the time spent at each attraction in order to meet our particular interests. We were particularly impressed with the guide, who spoke perfect English, was able to answer all our questions about the sights and... More

We are happy to say that St. Petersburg was one of the highlights of our Baltic cruise this past summer and we left with a very favorable impression of both your company and country.
