I used Best Guides for solo tours multiple days in Moscow and Saint Petersburg and they are excellent. They helped me organize my days for the things that I wanted to see the most and then provided a tour guide who had extensive knowledge in those areas. I was so impressed with how much they knew about everything, you can... More

About 4 weeks prior to our departure on a cruise to the Baltic we contacted Best Guides to arrange a private 2 day tour of St Petersburg. We were 4 in number. Our contact Andrey was both very knowledgeable and flexible with regard to our itinerary and arranged our visas. No payment - not even a deposit- was requested until... More

We wanted to feel like we'd get a view of Russia that was a bit more personal than being shepherded around in a group. Working with Peter from peterswalk tour made that desire an over the top success! From the initial contact where Peter promptly and patiently answered questions via email , to the personalized and wonderful experience with our... More

We did the Keys of St Petersburg tour as a half day cruise excursion and had the best time. The guide was very knowledgeable and attentive. She geared most of the info towards my 7 year old and had several surprises for her along the way. I highly recommend this group for a private tour!!

We were on a cruise to St Petersburg and the tours from the ship were too expensive, plus too many people to be able to get round quickly and see as much as possible. So we booked our own private tour (there were 3 of us) with BEST GUIDES (we dealt with Dariya who was very professional and quick to... More

We had only one day in St Petersburg while on a Baltic cruise and therefore had a number of sights that we wanted to see in only one day. Best Guides designed and itinerary that suited us perfectly! Inna (our guide) was amazing! She was a book of knowledge and showed us so many things without ever rushing us (we... More

We were traveling with a group of 14 relatives, so the mini-bus tour was just the right size. Our guide, Sveta, was outstanding and the driver, Vadim, was very good. The company was flexible, modifying the itinerary to accommodate some individual needs and to account for traffic conditions. Sveta was very skilled at navigating the ticketing process at the sites... More

We spent 3.5 days with the group and enjoyed their company and their guide to the wonderful city and surrounds of St Petersburg. It is recommended to have a private guide in your first visit to this fine city because of the written language and the enormity of the place with history and expanse. Best guides were good and efficient,... More

Our 2 day stop on the Regal Princess in St Petersburg was the highlight of an 11 day Baltic cruise. We booked Best Guides "Best of the Best" tour on our own at about 1/2 the cost of Princess 2 day tour. It was perfect. We had 10 people in a mercedes van with driver Sergae and Irena, our wonderful... More
