Peter & Paul Fortress, Church of the Spilled Blood, Yusupov Palace, Hermitage Museum, Winter Palace, Faberge Museum, Shuvaalov Palace, Peterhof Grand Palace and Tsar’s Village were the main highlights in St. Petersburg. Marina was our guide and her amazing knowledge of Russian history and the history of St. Petersburg made our trip an amazing and memorable experience. Her English is impeccable and we thoroughly enjoyed our lunches at traditional Russian restaurants. We will definitely return to see more of Russia!

We booked Marina and her driver Sergey for a private 1 week tour of St. Petersburg and the surrounding palaces. Marina was wonderful. She speaks Russian and excellent English which was perfect for our mixed-language family. Our grandchildren don't speak Russian. We were there during the white nights, and Marina knew all the key spots to show us how the locals celebrate this special time of the year. Marina filled the days with exciting tours, and was extremely friendly and knowledgable and made the city so exciting again for us and for our family. She was super flexible and we loved spending the week with her. We hope to stay in touch and will recommend her to any friends traveling to Russia.

Last spring, we were fortunate to visit Saint Petersburg on a cruise ship and Marina happened to be our tour guide for two days which appeared to be a great luck. From the moment of booking everything went well; the company manager, Elena, was very accommodating with all our requests to change the itinerary so that it would better suit our plans. And during the two days of the tour, our tour guide, Marina, and our driver were very helpful, professional and attentive to us. Marina is an inexhaustible source of knowledge and she speaks excellent English. Marina was always ready to help with anything we asked as well as the driver (sorry, do not remember his name). The true highlight of the tour was the Hermitage museum; Marina did a great job to get us through without missing any of the objects d’art we were interested in. We had a wonderful time in St Petersburg thanks to you, buddies!

We had a wonderful tour of St Petersburg with a guide Marina last April. She was really knowledgeable, friendly and cheerful. We could have never managed to cover the key sights alone. She told us a lot of interesting facts about the city and its history. The tour was absolutely tailored and it was an unforgettable day! We are planning to visit St Petersburg again, and we will definitely use their services if we do.
