    I had a wonderful small group tour here. Our guide was very knowledgeable and covered a lot in the time we were there. When you see the line up for tickets you are glad to be able to skip it!!

    Katia was our guide and we could not have had anyone with more knowledge and patience. The Hermitage is enormous but is made more manageable with a guide who takes you to the most memorable art works..

    Katiya was an excellent and enthusiastic guide in the massive Hermitage. She gave us insight into the art that we could not have possibly gained ourselves. Quicker entry is another plus.

    I had unknowingly booked the tour itself somehow, but I am very glad I did. We were initially 8 or 9, though the others were only part of the skip-the-line part the company offers. It was great being one-on-one, thereby being able to ask about whatever. Katya, my tour-guide,
