My husband and I were able to relax and enjoy our visit to St. Petersburg under the expert and energetic guidance of Andrey Vereshhagin. Our communication ahead of the trip was excellent, and although we had set on an itinerary before we arrived Andre suggested we rearrange it due to the weather, and this turned out very well. We would... More

My adult daughter and I spent two days touring St. Petersburg with Andrey, and we found him to be incredibly knowledgeable and well-organized. We never waited in long lines, and his driver always magically appeared! Andrey answered every question we posed, and gave us many insights into Russian history and culture. He also provided a lot of practical advice about... More

Six of us were on a Baltic Sea cruise and hired Andrey for 2 full days of visiting the breathtaking sights and monuments of St Petersburg. The weather also took your breath away - wind and rain like a mid winter storm on the Oregon coast. So we had to forego our trip to the Peterhof Gardens. Instead we toured... More

In St. Petersburg we toured privately with Andrey for two days and with his colleague Victoria Pushel for two days. For Moscow we arranged private guiding services through a company reviewed on TripAdvisor, expecting our guide would be one of... More

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

Andrey was recommended to us by our friends he guided a few years ago - we were a family of 2 adults and our teenage daughter. We booked this 3 day tour guided by Andrey months in advance. We did have a preliminary idea as for the main tourist attractions we were interested to visit, Andrey added a few more... More
