We spent a lovely three days with Alex and Oleg. Alex is very detailed with his explanations and descriptions. You can tell this is his passion as well as his profession. All of our three days were fun and interesting. If you are interested in military history or just feel like experiencing something different then we would definitely recommend histours. It was a unique experience and we will return for future tours when we are next in St Petersburg. Hopefully very soon.

I did a tour with Alexander in August 2018 and it was my most memorable day whilst visiting Russia. Alexander is an amazing guide, he gave so much thought to our tour and he speaks excellent english.

Superb tour with Alexander. We learnt so much in 3 hours and covered a lot of ground. Some parts were truly moving. I hope to do the full day tour one day.

If you want in depth and knowledgeable historical detail, Alexander is the guide for you. He goes into great depth about Saint Petersburg, it's history, architecture and culture. We spent tow days with Alexander starting with the Summer Palace and the Pederhoff. The next day was a metro tour and a half day devoted to the Siege of Leningrad. Touring with Alexander allowed us to gain an incredible insight and respect of the hardships and conflicts which were afflicted on this beautiful and historical city.

Alexander was a fascinating guide and kept our family of 5 (ranging in age from 62-25) engaged. There was one military history buff, two with historical interest and two with minimal interest. Alexander, took us to a number of sites (which we would have struggled to reach on our own), kept us all interested throughout the day and really bought the history to life. I cannot recommend this tour enough.
