Thank you Gabriele! Good having you on our walks. That swarm of weddings at Vitebsk Station was extraordinary, wasn’t it. Did you you make it to Catherine Palace? Cheers, Peter

We did a lot of walking, taking us off the roads and into courtyards and hidden areas you wouldn’t venture to on your own. Some of the information provided was not so much history but cool little unique trivia facts that made the tour so different then the others. Don’t miss this one!

The Other Side of St Petersburg
Sep 2019 • Solo
St Petersburg is an extraordinary city and you can walk on your own to see its beauty. But if you want a flavor of how the locals live along with a visit to a few of the beautiful sights then this tour is for you. Our small group went to the local market, sampled local food and drink (try the horseradish vodka!) and visited the inner courtyards of buildings that you would never see otherwise. And yes, we saw the magnificent architecture. One of the best walking tours I have been on.

Exceptional Tour Guides!
Sep 2019
During our week in St Petersburg, my wife and I took three walking tours, two led by Peter and one by his colleague Anastasia. Peter customized our two tours with him to suit our interest in the Siege, and similarly Anastasia tailored our tour of the Hermitage according to our interests. Both Peter and Anastasia were exceptionally organized, efficient, knowledgeable, articulate, and engaging. What's more, we learned from them a great deal about Russian culture today (and from Peter we learned how to use the metro). It's hard to imagine two finer guides. In parting, Peter recommended that my wife and I spend a day at Pavlovsk Park, and so we did and loved it: the grounds are nothing short of paradise, more splendid than any place of its kind that we have visited in our three decades of travel. In sum, our tours with Peter and Anastasia were the highlight of our time in St Petersburg: without their guidance, we would have learned so much less, and without Peter, we would have needed twice the time to find the Siege landmarks we wished to visit.

So informative and different
Aug 2019
There was initially a slight problem with our tour which the owner remedied immediately. This tour bypasses the normal attractions and highlights lesser known but fascinating features of the city, modern history and the Russian people’s perspective. It really was superb.

A Few Tips About Peter's Walking Tour
Jun 2019
There are a number of tour companies that specialize in St. Petersburg. A large number of them service the cruises that dock across town. Through the American Travel writer, Rick Steves, we learned about Peter’s Walking Tour who also provides tours for independent travelers.

We emailed Peter and our wants and wishes. Peter writes excellent emails back to you. His email skills are superb. We did get a number of great ideas through our correspondence.

Peter does offer a guided tour for the historic part of St. Petersburg. It is reasonable. You show up at a designated area and the tour is for four hours.

We arranged a “private tour.” One day for St. Petersburg. and a second tour to Catherine’s Palace to see the famous “Amber Room.” My wife was more than nervous visiting this city.

We decided to do Peterhof on our own. The fountain areas are the main focus there and we felt a guide wasn’t needed. Peter agreed and gave us a few ideas.

Our personal guide was “Dimitry.” He is extremely competent and friendly. He was very good to us and understanding of our ways and attitudes. By the end of two days, he was our friend.

We were concerned about what we read about the aggressive “pickpockets” in St. Petersburg. Peter and Dimitry warned us of such activities. I think it was funny that Dimitry and I worked out a system that if he suspected anyone to be a pickpocket specialist, he would warn me with the word, “THIEF.” Dimitry never did warn me.

On our guided tour of St. Petersburg, the four hours went by very quickly. I enjoyed finding out where Rasputin was murdered and the hotel where Hitler was going to celebrate after winning the Siege of Leningrad.

We were amazed on how he cut throw alley’s we would never find on our own. Dimitry gave us ideas on where we could eat—loved King Pong—and most of all showed us how to use the St. Petersburg metro system. We were able to use the metro the following day to go to Peterhof.

Dimitry did advise us to visit an area called “New Holland” on our own. What an interesting new area in St. Petersburg. We would have never went there without that knowledge.

Having a guide to Catherine’s Palace made a world of difference. The palace is a good distance away from central St. Petersburg. Dimitry was able to negotiate a good rate with the taxi. Being a registered guide, he was able to cut-through the large tourist groups and we were right in Catherine’s Palace. It seemed he knew all the officials.

Walking around Catherine’s Park was special. Dimitry took us around the lake. Every so often he would take our picture.

There is no question that we highly recommend the use of “Pete's Walking Tours.” We never did meet “Peter.” If having Dimitry as our guide, a reflection of Peter’s company, I suspect Peter to be one heck of a tour guide himself.

If you found this review to be “helpful” in any way, please press “LIKE” to let me know.
