We had a wonderful day touring the city with Tanya. She was warm and friendly as well as being extremely knowledgable. She shared not only knowledge of history and architecture but she answered many questions and provided information about life in Russia/ St. Petersburg. Our tickets for places like The Hermitage and Church on Spilt Blood were obtained so quickly we can't imagine waiting on those lines or navigating that ourselves. We never would have seen or learned as much on our own in a day. We highly recommend you take a tour. We are very happy we spent the day with Tanya!

We can't say enough about Nadis (Nadia) our tour guide. She was extremely knowledgeable about every single place, art, history and more and was such a sweetheart and pleasant. Constantine our driver was very friendly and easy going and both of them made our trip to Saint Petersburg a great one.
We highly recommend!!

Thank you so much Ms. Helga for being our guide to the Catherine Palace. It truly is an enlightening day tour out of Saint Petersburg. Your extensive knowledge of the place made us appreciate the beauty of what Russia has to offer. You truly are a Russian gem!
Will definitely recommend St Pete Private Tours and especially Ms. Helga to anyone who hasn't visited the Catherine Palace. More power to your great company!

St Pete Private Tours made our visit to St Petersburg so easy and so pleasant! We loved how we were able to book (and pay) everything through their website. Anna also corresponded with us so there was the human touch as well and not just a website that you don't know if your requests were received. We appreciated their flexibility to adjust one of the tours according to our interests. It was interesting that we were able to pick our own tour guides based on their profiles. For the first day, we went with Helga (Olga) to Peterhof and Catherine Palace. It was a rainy day but Helga tried to make it fun and kept us out of the rain and the lines. By the way, I think it's worth going for the optional Catherine Palace. It's different from Peterhof. Unlike Peterhof, Non-flash photography is allowed, and one can be more relax to enjoy the grand palace. For the second and the third day, we had a great time with Nadiss for the walking and city tours. She knew a lot about St. Petersburg's rich history, and it was a bonus for us that she knew a lot about Russian music and composers, which we were really fascinated about! We had really good conversations that really enriched our understanding of Russian culture, its people and St Petersburg. Both Nadiss and Helga spoke excellent English! Our driver (Konstantin) was also good and courteous. Everyone was punctual, and everything went really well. Overall, we were glad that we chose them and St Pete Private Tour and really had a wonderful "private tour!"

It was our first visit to St. Petersburg, and we had lots of questions about the city, its art, and the history. Fortunately, we had scheduled a tour with Nadiss!

She met us at our hotel, and spent the day showing us her beautiful city. She provided us a custom experience based on our interests, and patiently answered our questions the entire time.

We used the company's Moscow office to schedule a tour, and we had the same rewarding experience. The tours provided us with not only understanding of the city, but a chance to speak at length with a resident of the city. We highly recommend it!
