Olga is a wonderful and very knowledgeable guide. She made a point to explain in detail the nuances of the places we visited. A 6 hour tour was a breath of fresh air and made it very enjoyable. She is in a personal level a very nice person.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Carlos, thank you very much for your kind words. That was my pleasure to show you my city.

Olga was an excellent guide. Her English is excellent. Her readiness to help buying tickets for performances we wanted helped us tremendously when it was difficult to order via the internet, She also sent me websites to pick performances. She met us at the performance. Olga is very knowledgeable. She answered my emails promptly. We picked another company for a tour to Pavolsk Park. Big disappointment because we had no idea whom our guide is. Tours by locals worked well in St. P. and Moscow,

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Leslie, thank you very much for your nice review. My best regards to all members of your team:)

My family (including 2 boys, 9 and 10 years old) were guided by Olga through Hermitage. She gave us great tour through the main building, shared her interests about painting. Amazingly, our kids were able to be involved for the whole 3 hours of intense tour.

Olga was a perfect local guide. She was very informative. And made our trips to the hermitage Museum, city tour, Peterhof and pavlovsk very beautiful. She has a super good sense of making stories about the tours which made it interesting and real. She knows her way through the museums very well and experienced. Thankyou for the lovely 2 days

We spent two wonderful days in St. Petersburg on July 9/10, 2019 as a part of out Baltic Cruise Our guide was Olga S We wanted to see a lot of things in a short period of time. Olga S was very attentive to all our requests. We were truly impressed with the depth of the knowledge Olga S. has about St Petersburg and Russia. Olga S is very pleasant person to communicate with. We would certainly recommend Olga S to any person who would like to get the most informative and pleasant experience from the tour

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Alla and Boris, thank you very much for such a great review! Was it really so good? I also had two great days with you and hope to see you again in St Petersburg.

Olga took us on an excellent tour of St Petersburg: a city which she obviously loves! She is a very friendly person to spend time with, and told us many interesting historical anecdotes which helped to bring the history of the city to life. I feel that I understand the history of the city from a modern perspective now, having seen how it has evolved from the start. The tour was an excellent start to our stay, and although we saw a lot, we never felt rushed.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Ann, thank you so much for the great review! I wish you a pleasant stay in St Petersburg.

Olga was very knowledgeable and spoke excellent English. We were taken to many sites and able to take pictures. She took many pictures of our family and made sure to include shopping for souvenirs, which was high on our list. Our only real disappointment was we did not enter any of the buildings we stopped at. This could be because we didn't request anything specific when booking the tour except to shop for souvenirs. I recommend booking with Olga!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Michelle, thank you very much for the review. Pity that you did not mention you want to go inside any museum. That is the reason to come back and visit all these places we saw:)

Olga was a very professional guide, pleasant - full of both good stories, historical data and artistic knowledge. Her fluency with English was outstanding. All was arranged: driver, tickets, timing (we arrived at the fountains in Peterhof a few minutes before the fountains started). Olga was a pleasure to spend 8 hours learning about and touring St. Petersburg.

Olga is a superb guide. She is knowledgeable and personable and very hardworking. She went above and beyond on an all day tour of St. Petersburg. I have taken many Tours by Locals tours. However, I rate Olga at the very top of the list. She is passionate about her city, and her deep knowledge of history and art and culture is exceptional. I highly recommend her. May you be so fortunate as to get her for a guide.

Definitely 5 star. Olga was friendly, personable and fun, but more than that she understood our depth of interest and knew just how much detail to go into before we became bored or overloaded with facts. It's apparent Olga has a deep knowledge of the country's history and the artworks in the galleries but she never sounded bored herself or delivered facts parrot-fashion having done this tour, I imagine, countless times. To keep your enthusiasm for this job takes a special attitude which Olga possesses.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Joanne, thank you very much for your kind words! I hope to see you again some other day. You always welcome to Saint Petersburg.

Olga was fantastic! Enthusiastic, we'll traveled, insightful, an encyclopedic knowledge of Russian history, great conversationalist in near perfect English. We never waited in line. She took care of tickets to everything. My husband has walking challenges- she arranged for a wheelchair in the Hermitage! She employed a marvelous driver - always ready for us after each visit. Olga customized our itinerary. We visited memorable restaurants each day. It was without a doubt the best experience we ever had.

Olga was excellent. Her knowledge of her heritage and history of St. Petersburg was outstanding. She was able to get myself and my wife into every major tourist attraction without waiting in very long lines. We never had to wait for anything and was able to do so much in 2 days. We also had an opportunity to enjoy Russian folk dancing at night and explore the city at night. Olga was very attentive and we enjoyed her company and appreciated her knowledge of this beautiful city. Worth money for private tour

Olga was our guide for a two day excursion in St Petersburg. She was FANTASTIC. Every place we worked on in the itinerary was met. Our own guide and good driver (Yuri) made time for us at every stop if we needed rest rooms or to rest our feet. We always made head of line and because we were only two in our party we saw everything while passing the larger tour groups(who incidentally paid more and saw less) I have no hesitation on recommending ToursByLocals generally and Olga in particular. Thank you!

if you want to get the flavor of the old Russian history blended with the present St Petersburg ,please accompany with Olga , the Great. The tour of three days were fabulous. Olga was simply great to explain the culture and history of this city and its treasures. The paintings of Hermitage became live , the fountain of Peter's Palace at the Baltic sea became dancing, the greatness of Peter's fortress was prominent and off course the great summer at Catherine the Great Place became warm with the Olga.

Olga was a great host along side her driver Alexander. Olga was extremely knowledgeable and her great English allow us to understand everything. She was very flexible when we asked her to make some changes and never seemed to be thrown when that occurred. I would highly recommend Olga to anyone who wants a knowledgeable tour guide that is friendly and nice to spend one or two days with as I and my wife and four other friends did. I would rate her ten if I could.

My wife and I had great expectations for our experiences in St Petersburg and because of Olga and her tour our expectations were exceeded! Her great knowledge and love for the city made this city and tour the highlight of our terrific Baltic ocean cruise. Unlike other large group tours we traveled in the comfort of a comfortable small van and saw many more sights including the highlights. Olga also answered all of our questions about everyday life in Russia.We left loving the city. Thank you Olga.
