Nikolai is an extremely knowledgeable guide. He knows the city like the back of his hand, and was able to provide insightful commentaries on the sights we passed during our 50-minute drive to Peterhof. His expertise in the history of the Grand Palace itself is absolutely impressive. Highly recommended!
