Instead of booking an excursion from our cruise line, we opted to use Best Guides which was less expensive and it was just the four of us instead of a bus load of people. That meant we were able to see more in less time. Our itinerary included: sight seeing and becoming familiar with St. Petersburg, hydrofoil ride, Catherine's Palace,... More

My wife, our two grown up children, and I visited St. Petersburg, while on a Baltic cruise. I selected this company after careful shopping since I wanted us to have a good experience. I also was thrilled to support a company started and run by highly educated and motivated women. Our experience with Best Guides was excellent right from the... More

When in St Petersburg early June, we had two days with Best Guides to tour us. The first day we went to Pushkin to see the three palaces. Elena was our guide and what a wonderful one she was. She gave us excellent tours of all three palaces, Her knowledge was extensive, fielding all our many and varied questions. She... More

We are very independent travelers and had never before used a tour company or guide. But we had some anxiety about traveling in a place where we might not be able to find our way around (translated maps but Cyrillic street signs), so we decided to try a private guide when we traveled to St. Petersburg last summer. Best Guides... More

Spent three days in St. Petersburg and had 2 days with another couple and one day with an individual tour. We saw all the most important sites and had detailed explanations of the history associated with each site. Our guide on our last day,Andrew, was passionate about making our day special, as it was my husband's birthday. We got in... More

I did a four hour tour in St Petersburg with a great English-speaking guide called Elena. This was in a comfy car driven by Boris. The guide is clearly in love with the city and transmits the history with huge energy and knowledge. What I particularly liked was her ability to answer impromptu questions and react individually rather than just... More

We have just returned home from St. Petersburg where we had a 2-day tour arranged by Dariya and guided by Helen. Our itinerary (for 4 people) was perfect (just wish we had one more day to see Russian Art Museum)... Besides the standard in-town itinerary, we loved visiting Peter Hof and Catherine's Palace (Breathtaking Amber Room) in Pushkin! The biggest... More

Prior to commencing our tour we did not know what to expect especially as we had our 16 month old with us. Due to this we booked a private tour for our family though Best guides having read reviews on here. From the moment my husband started emailing this company to arrange the tour nothing felt too much. We docked... More
