My husband and I booked tours in both cities. Elena in Moscow was just fantastic!! Very knowledgeable and very flexible which was very important to us. We had program planned but were not under time pressure. She suggested us State Diamond Fund in Kremlin which wasn't even in our plan just because she thought we might enjoy it. And later... More

We visited St.Petersburg in a cruise and we decided to do a 2 days personal tour with this company. Unfortunately the guide had not enough experience and her English was too basic. We didn't enjoy the city as we would like. Fortunately, the driver had a lot of experience and he tried to cover some of her deficiencies, as shopping... More

Dear Antomarina, thank you very much for taking your time to write the review. It's very important for us to get feedback. I'm very sorry about your negative experience.

We were in 4 (2 couples) and we had the pleasure to stay 5 nights in SPB in Mid August, 2015. The team was attentive to our needs during booking and all arrangements for the tours. Everything was uncomplicated. Which already deserves a compliment. But we have to acknowledge that the star of the company was our guide, Mrs. Marina... More

We recently took a Baltics Cruise and booked all day tours in St. Petersburg and Moscow and could not have been happier. Our guides Olga (St. Petersburg) and Lina (Moscow) were excellent. Both were very knowledgeable about their cities, spoke excellent English and modified the tours to satisfy our requests. We took the high speed train from St. Petersburg to... More

My family of 10 had a very good experience with the 2-day "Best of the Best" tour. Disembarking from our cruise, we went through immigrations smoothly with the tickets we printed out from Best Guides and were met by our wonderful tour guide Irina and driver Igor. Irina took great care of us and was flexible about rearranging our schedule... More

From the first enquiry to the final farewell everything ran so smoothly. Booking was straight forward and our guide Marina did everything to ensure we had a wonderful experience. In our 2 days we visited all the major attractions with adequate time to look around and even visit an underground station for a train ride at the request of one... More

We did two half day tours in St. Petesbourgh with Dilyara. The experience was fantastic. She is extremely knowledgeable on Rusia's history as well as sites. She was constantly looking after us, and very keen for us to have a good time, which we definitively did. Thanks Dilyara!

Irina's knowledge of the tour sights was incredible, but not only the Historic sights, for when Russia's best driver Vasily would turn a corner, Irina would point out and explain another place of interest. The canal cruise was very relaxing and the lunches were a total delight.

We used Best Guides for an evening and full day tour during a cruise stop at SPB. Both tours were excellent! The communication before the trip was very responsive and Best Guides took care of our tourist visas. They were also very concerned about making sure we returned to our cruise ship on time. We would definitely use Best Guides... More
