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

Andrey put together a 3 day program, and coordinated all tickets to the various sites, as well as transportation. He knows the tricks! We got into the Hermitage via a secret side entrance (well, the coat... 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.
