    The State Hermitage Museum
    Stop: 2 hours - Admission included
    Avoid any hassle and skip the line at your visit to St. Petersburg's Hermitage with this private guided tour. Take a tour of the Art Gallery that is ranked in the top 5 art museums in the world. The collection is so big that only 13% is ever on display at one time. After the revolution most of the interiors lost their original decor, but 5 gala rooms are still able to demonstrate how sumptuously the Romanov Dynasty lived. While on the tour you will see the cream of the collection: Italian Renaissance art, Spanish Golden Age, Flemish art, etc. French Impressionists and post-impressionists are displayed in different building across the Palace square which you are welcome to browse on your own. With this tour, you will take advantage of the VIP entrance in order to bypass any possible lines that usually gather in front of the museum. Your personal professional licensed guide will walk you through all major sights, and he or she will want to know your own preferences or special interests, in order to plan the itinerary and tour accordingly.

stunningly beautiful decor in the museums.

we had a 2 day tour with Natasha & ALexi .... they were really great !. My husband had a travel scooter with him & Alex was very helpful getting it in & out of vehicle & assembled for him. He did a fantastic job driving in the crazy city. Natasha was a very sweet lady & took us under her wing & got us to front of lines in no time . We enjoyed the tours very much.

Dear Judy! Thank you very much for your nice words. We are glad you enjoyed your tour with us. Guests with mobility issues are always a challenge and I am happy that we managed it all well. All major historical sights in St Petersburg are accessible - such as: Hermitage, Spilled blood and St Isaak's Cathedrals, Catherine's Palace with Amber room and others. In most cases we carefuly pre-arrange all visits so that our visitors go along their tours smoothly and hasstle-free. Please spread the word and know that you are always welcome back!

Jun 2019 • Family
We can't say enough good things about the tour and our guide. My wife and I are both 80 years old, and are not up to the pace for younger participants. Our guide was sensitive to the pace of touring for the young AND the old. We toured for two days, and included the city Peterhof.

I highly recommend Maxi Balt Tours for your visit.
You will not be disappointed.

May 2018 • Friends
We took this tour while on a cruise of the Baltic. We were picked up at the cruise ship Terminal and spent the day touring with Monika. The Hermitage museum is a busy place and Monika knew all the shortcuts to give us a tour which was informative as well as personable . History came alive as we saw the art, palace rooms and the decadence of the Russian Royalty. No wonder the revolution occurred. Monika also answered our questions about life in Russia for people who live in St. Petersburg now in a candid and personable manner. I think we had the best tour guide ever!

Best St. Pete Russian tour ever!
May 2017 • Couples
Alexi was outstanding from start to finish on our two day venture off the cruise ship. We were referred to him from a neighbor who had used his company before. He is a native of St. Pete, speaks perfect English because he was an exchange student in the USA, respects "our" culture and knows what we are interested in. He adjusts the tour to match your physical limitations [ my bad back ] and custom-structures it to fit your specific interests and schedule. [ I wanted to visit the Old Synagogue and met the Rabbi as well, while my wife got to see ALL the churches ]. His guide at the Hermitage was first class, brilliant and very professional. Capped-off a terrific 50th wedding anniversary cruise! Would strongly recommend his firm.
