He was flexible, and arranged a several hour evening walking tour for me of the city's major sites on short notice. I am an attorney, and have some knowledge of engineering and architecture.

There are no suggestions for improvement that I can make. My wife and I made arrangements on a very short notice. Andrei toured with us St. Petersburg in general for one day and dedicated one day to Hermitage. He was very flexible, and even changed his personal schedule in order to accommodate ours last moment's desires. Responds very quickly via... More

The visit to the Bolshoi to see a production of... More

Andrey had been recommended by friends and he certainly lived up to their recommendation. He was prompt and completely arranged all of the tour activities for us, including Visas. His knowledge of Russian history is so thorough and we did feel safe with him. We do recommend him. Gordons in Vancouver BC
