We spent about 4 1/2 hours with Mike, our bi-lingual guide, who took us by metro, bus and on foot, to a large number of sites throughout the city which took us through 3 Revolutions, ending with October 1917. Mike could not have been more informative and met every question with thoughtful answers. We felt he knew the city like the back of his hand and were thrilled to visit things it would have been hard to get to, even with a 7 day stay in the city, whether one speaks Russian or not. Mike also assisted with recommending places to eat and a couple of museums to visit later in our trip. The tour was custom-built for the family - up to 5 people can go at any one time. I would thoroughly recommend as one of the highlights of our entire visit. We also took the boat tour one evening and were able to enjoy an English speaking commentary as we explored the canals and River Neva. All very professional and a great help to non Russian speakers.
