Owner description: Petersburg free tour is combine of great routes which cover must-see places off the beaten track and great guides with overwhelming personality, full of energy and creativity! It's completely free but cool walking city tour and some great paid tours like Hermitage, Boat tours, Petergof, WW-II tours, private and car tours.

This was an excellent introductory tour with Lily who was knowledgeable and interesting. She obviously knew her stuff - especially the history - and was not just repeating information like some tour guides do. Better still, she was also my guide for the Communist Leningrad paying tour later that day which was also excellent. These free tours are a great idea because you get the introduction then you can choose which of the more detailed paying tours to go on. I'd recommend these to anyone.

My friend and I took the free tour and then all other tours which are Petersburg metro tour, Russian vodka museum tour & tasting, communist Leningrad tour and boat tour at night. We had a guide who was really helpful and really enthusiastic to tell everything what she knows about history of St. Petersburg. She spent most of her day with us and we had so much fun!
I recommend you to take the free tour definetely and take all other tours as well if you have time because it is a great thing that in a short time you can learn and see so much thing in that magnificent city.

We started with free tour at 10.45 in the morning, also did city-pass tour and boat tour which ended at 2 am. It was very tiring to do them all at the same day but it was well worth it. Our tour guide, Lidiya, was a fantastic person, cheerful and funny. She used all of her limit during this 16 hour tour. When you ask for the tour also ask for Lidiya to guide you because she was the best tour guide I've seen so far. My advice is you should do all of the tours, on same day or separate days that is your choice. But do them all so that you can enjoy all parts of St. Petersburg.

We had a great guide who was really friendly and knowledgeable. We were really lucky that it was only our group that showed up so we got her all to ourselves. She patiently answered all our questions and it felt like we were just chatting with a friend rather then a guide. We didn't get as much information about the history as we were expecting but got a lot more details in other areas.
