Nikolai was waiting for our family group of four when we disembarked the Regal Princess in St. Petersburg. He was extremely knowledgeable about the history of this remarkable former capital of Russia. He kept us informed concerning all that we passed along the way to Peterhof, and was an excellent guide there and at The Hermitage later in the afternoon. He was particularly attentive to my sister-in-law's needs to walk slowly and to sit when there was availability. An overall fabulous tour experience.
it was awesome experience and the guide was very helpful

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!

AMAZING! Such a great tour! Nikolai was on-time picking us up directly from our hotel. He told us about tons of places on the hour or so drive to Peterhof. His English was extremely good, so he was able to speak quickly without having to think too much about how to say something. I eavesdropped a bit on some other English tour guides and Nikolai was way better. We had a great walk through the palace itself. He timed the excursion perfectly -- we saw the opening ceremony just as we exited the palace.

Excellent tour. By the time that we went to Peterhof in the afternoon my husband was very tired. On the ride over in the hydrofoil Nikolai told us about the history and architecture of the gardens. When we arrived we went to those areas of the grounds that were of particular interest to us or to Nikolai and he described in detail those areas that we were too footsore to visit. Although we were not able to cover extensive areas, we felt that we had a thorough tour of the grounds and fountains.

Excellent guide. He really knows his stuff, has a grey understandable command of his english and drives his own car. The day in Peterhof was amazing and he just made it that much better. He was the best anyone could ask for. Highly recommend him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the nice reference! I always try to do my best!
