My family took a day sightseeing tour with Andrey trough the main sights in St Petersbourg. What most impressed us about Andrey is his vast knowledge and culture. Whether you want to know about the sights themselves, the history of pre-revolution Russia or communist regime, he knows a lot and transmits it very well. So my personal hint is ask... More

We had a wonderful walking tour with Andrey seeing many of the main sights in St Petersburg. He was tireless and very informative. We had a second tour planned of the Hermitage but due to problems with our lost bicycle luggage, we had to cancel. Andrey was very understanding despite our last minute cancellation. We would highly recommend him as... More

We were privileged to have Andrey as our guide over a 3 day period. He designed the itinerary and included some extras at our suggestion. He even arranged tickets for us to see the Swan Lake Ballet one evening, with travel included. His knowledge was extraordinary and he was thoroughly engaging, so much so that another guide asked him to... More

We did have a preliminary idea as for the main tourist attractions we were interested to visit, Andrey added a few more... More

We were in St. Petersburg at the end of May 2016. Andrey met me at my hotel along with his skilled driver. We walked around the hotel neighborhood first to see interesting mixtures of St. P's architecture. He took me to the synagogue which is beautifully restored, and on to the other side of the canals where the area contains... More

Andrey took two of us for a couple of days, showing us places tailored to suit our particular interests and providing a highly knowledgeable, fascinating commentary. He's thoroughly well organised and it all went very smoothly. For me the highlight was the evening we spent in a jazz club, all organised by Andrey. Many thanks to him for giving us... More

During our 3 hour tour for 32 people (from about 12 countries), Andrey did the impossible: he covered a great number of attractions (I would dare say- all the major and quite a number of minor ones) of the city and managed a wonderful tour of the Yusupov Palace. Invariably punctual, well-organised, his knowledge and guidance was versed, intellectual and... More
