We only had a few hours to visit the city. St Petersburg Essential organised for us an excellent mini-tour allowing us to take in as much of the main sights as possible in the short time at our disposal. Our very knowledgeable guide Valeria and driver Aleksander were both outstanding. A highly recommendable experience!

St Petersburg Essential tour were absolutely brilliant. They gave us a comprehensive tour of St Petersburg which we found amazing We particularly enjoyed the Peterhof Palace and gardens and the Vodka Museum for lunch was great Also the Metro was well worth visiting. Ekaterina our tour guide was great she had an encyclopaedic knowledge of St Petersburg and really looked after us, she was assisted by her driver Andri. Thanks very much to Davide for organising the whole trip trip.

Davide was a very accommodating guide and tour manager and he was able to arrange a bike trip together in Vyborg, which was great since I was able to see more than just St Petersburg. This was all done with very short notice so I was glad to have been able to utilize their expertise in such a short time frame. I also had an afternoon tour with Anna in St Petersburg and she was extremely knowledgeable and we visited various sites throughout the city. If you are in need of guides, travel help, transportation,etc., these are the folks to contact!

Outstanding is the only way to describe our trip to St Petersburg. After being on the Web site of St Petersburg Essential Guide looking for ideas and assistance, decided to book with them. The Web site alone is a mine of information, however in booking with owners Davide and Anastasia we were not disappointed. Communication with Davide was immediate, professional and informative. We booked a fully guided two day tour, first day walking, second day with car. For us it was the perfect combination, allowing us to get the 'feel' of St Petersburg. Our beautiful guide Elena was knowledgeable, professional and fun to be with. We had two full, unforgettable days which allowed us to see the main attractions....The Hermitage, The Summer Palace, The Church of Our Saviour on Spilled Blood, Leningrad memorial, Raising the Drawbridge night cruise plus many extas on the walking day. Elena went the extra mile in organising a pick up for us from train station in Moscow! A heartfelt thank you to you all for making our stay in St Petersburg such a memorable one!

Davide organised an individual tour for my daughter and myself on Saturday July 6th as we had a specific requirement to see the Architecture of the Soviet Era within St Petersburg. His planning was excellent, everything worked like clockwork from the hotel pick up through to meeting our guide Veronika, we had a picture in advance so we knew who to look for and the 8 hours we spent on the tour flew by and covered everything we had asked for & more. Our guide Veronika was extremely knowledgeable, her English was excellent and she really made the whole day very interesting and stress free. I would definitely recommend using Davide & Anastasia's St Petersburg Essential Guide and was so pleased I found them by chance, thank you.

Two families, travelling with young children had the opportunity to visit St. Petersburg during our cruise in May. We only had one day and wanted to take as much advantage to see and do in St. Petersburg as we could. Well before our holiday started we got in touch with St. Petersburg Essential Guide. Both Anastasia and Davide assisted us to create a family proof program to make the most out of our one day stay. And we were not disappointed at all!

Our wonderful guide Elena met us at the meeting point just right outside the cruise terminal. The minivan with driver was there as well. Our tour started so smoothly on what was to be a beautiful sunny day. The day was full of highlights, with of course the Hermitage as an aboslute must-see highlight for any visitor in St. Petersburg. The traditional lunch at the Vodka restaurant was also an experience which we can highly recommend. Elena showed us around, whilst telling us about the overwhelming history of St. Petersburg in a very interesting way.

We highly recommend St. Petersburg Essential Guide to anyone who has plans to visit St. Petersburg. From preparation, to organization and the tour on itself. Everything was perfectly organized. The experience and enthousiasm they work with resulted in an unforgettable experience for all of us. Many thanks to Anastasia, Davide and Elena for making this possible, we wish you all the best!

We cant recommend the St Petersburg Essential guide enough. We stumbled onto their website and we are really glad we did as it took a lot of the stress off our visit.
Anastasia runs the business, I emailed her and she arranged for a driver to take us to and from the airport. I also asked them to arrange a private tour of the city, we saw so much in such a short space of time. Valeria was amazing and we could not have wished for a better guide, she was so knowledgeable and friendly. Andrey our driver who was also fantastic and a very careful driver, I felt safe in his hands ( having had some very scary drivers in other countries!)
It is comforting to know that Anastasia was just a phone call away if we had needed anything booking or otherwise any help or advice.
They helped make our visit all the more pleasurable.

We organized our 2 day tour of St. Petersburg with Davide and Anastasia and they were awesome! They were super responsive and were able to orchestrate a tour catered to our needs and important sights we wanted to see. Katerina, our guide, was beyond amazing. She was super knowledgeable and answered all the questions we had. She was easy to talk to and shared stories of the imperial family history as we toured all the beautiful sights St. Petersburg has to offer. We will definitely be back with our children and will book again with Davide and Anastasia because this experience with Katerina was absolutely invaluable!
