I have just finished a 3 week journey from Beijing to St. Petersburg. Along the way I have taken many tours. This tour is tops on my list! Olga! You must ask for Olga! She has an amazing sense of humor and she knows her facts! History was never my favorite subject, but if I had had Olga as a history teacher, I think I might have changed my major! She was patient when I took 5 million photos. She never tried to hurry me. For a 1 day tour I feel like I got 3 days in! All of the churchs/cathedrals AND the Hermitage! If I had tried to visit the Hermitage on my own I would have missed so much. She knew the details of many paintings. Once she knew the kind of paintings I liked, she selected the next exhibit to suit my tastes! This truly was a custom tour and I could not be happier with my day and it is all due to Olga!

We had a complete private tour of the city. The guide, Olga, was very nice and full of knowledge. There is a lot of sights included and you feel you get to know the history of the town and Russia. A nice russian lunch is included. Highly recommended tour!

St. Petersburg is beautiful and this all day tour successfully captures the highlights of the city. Irina was excellent and incredibly knowledgeable. The first part of the day is walking throughout the city and getting to know general pre-communist history. The second part was in L'Hermitage which is simply amazing. Great tour!!!
