Excellent guide for the Hermitage, shares her knowledge, asks about her client's preferences, manages to work around crowds -- even spotted a place to sit when the cafe was quite busy. The pace was comfortable and we managed to cover an amazing amount of territory.

Had a wonderful and memorable 5 days with Irina. She is an Art historian so was very knowledgeable about everything and our trips to the Hermitage and palaces were so much more interesting and meaningful because of the stories and background that Irina highlighted. Definitely to see a place like St Petersburg this kind of guide is a necessity and well worth the money. Irina recommended some very good restaurants,arranged for the transport in a private car ,all the tickets to the museums..no queing! TOP!!

Fantastic! My wife and I spent two days with Irina seeing all the best of St Petersburg and Peterhof. Irina also showed us the subway and took us to great places to eat. For one of the days, she even brought my wife a pair of gloves because we were walking a lot outside. I would highly recommend Irina! She even helped us buy ballet tickets!

If you are traveling to St. Petersburg go to the Russian Museum and use Irina as your guide. She knows the Museum very well and provides an excellent tour. It is not to be missed. She is super for any tour, but theRussian Museum was special.

What an unforgettable three days! I was there as a tourist with my husband and to research a particular artist. Irina delivered on both, indeed she dazzled - her profound knowledge of Russian art, and her obvious joy in sharing it, made for three of the most powerful hours I've spent in a museum (and I've spent 30 years in the world's museums big and small.) She's also a delight to be with, as was our driver, Roman. I cannot imagine a better guide to this great city's art, history and culture.

Irina is an excellent tour guide and we would tour with her again. She is a professional with an excellent command of history, art, architecture and current events as well as a through knowledge of her city. She is totally in tune with her clients expertly guiding you around the large groups and finding you the perfect spot for the best view and photo. She gave us three great restaurant suggestions and a full itinerary for our day on our own. Excellent in every way.

We used Tours By Locals for a shore excursion in St Petersburg, Russia on July 19, 2019. There were 6 in our party and we choose to do the 1 day tour. Although the weather was uncooperative we had a good day. Our guide was Irina P. She was very knowledgeable about the city and the history. She was accommodating and helped us navigate the crowds. I would highly recommend her.

Irina was an excellent guide. She was punctual, friendly & very knowledgeable. We were a small group of 4 older adults on our first visit to St Petersburg. We appreciated the comfortable Mercedes Benz van with experienced drivers. Our 2 day itinerary was full & time management was of the essence, it being the height of the tourist season. Irina made the experience run smoothly with nothing a problem. Thank you Irina for a wonderful taste of your historical city. We were blessed to have you as our guide

Irina is an excellent guide and has a remarkable knowledge of the history and politics of St Petersburg. Despite the unusually large crowds and hot weather she and the driver made the tour comfortable, efficient, and inclusive of all the best sites. Don't miss Peterhof gardens and the boat ride home!

Irina was our guide through St. Petersburg, city tour, hermitage, and two palaces outside the city. We had a diverse group of varied ages and levels of Russian proficiency, Irina was able to adapt the tour where needed to ensure everyone understood and was able to see what they were interested in. Irina was able to expertly guide us throughout the city and made for a very enjoyable four days. We will definitely do more tours with Irina when we get the chance to return to St.P and recommend her to everyone

Irina's knowledge of the history of St Petersburg formed the foundation of our 4-day tour. It was exceptional and we enjoyed her wonderful explanations and descriptions. Irina has a degree in art history that made the tour of the Hermitage even more interesting.

Irina and her driver were excellent. We were picked up from our cruise ship in St. Petersburg and spent two days visiting the city, museums, walking the sites, and seeing Catherine's palace and Peterhof. Our time in the Hermitage was well spent, and we were able to get into the neighboring facility to see the Impressionist collection. Irina was informative, pleasant, well organized, and her English was excellent. We never waited on lines, and always felt that we were "special". The highlight of our trip!

We spent a fabulous and interesting morning touring the Hermitage and surrounding buildings with Irina. She knows everything there is to know about the buildings and the artwork, and guided us through the museum (before it opened to the public) on a "greatest of the great" half day tour. Our entire family learned so much and enjoyed all of the time we spent with Irina. She is friendly, knowledgeable, warm, and a pleasure to spend time with.

We loved spending a morning touring St. Petersburg with Irina! She is warm, friendly, professional and very knowledgable about St. Petersburg's history, churches and historical sites.

Irina promptly answered my questions before the trip & took care of all the necessary info to enter Russia. The itinerary was magical - private canal tour, Catherine's Palace, Amber Room, Peterhof/Fountain park, Peter & Paul Fortress, Church of the Savior of the Spilled Blood, Hermitage/Winter Palace. We never had to wait in line. Irina is very knowledgeable about St. Petersburg, art and history. We all learned a lot without feeling like we were in a boring history class. Loved the tour - she's the best!

In addition to providing us with great tours, Irina arranged transport for our family of four when we visited St. Petersurg in June. The driver and service was outstanding. Clean vehicle, friendly driver, and everything was on time and went smoothly. It provided a great comfort to have the transports to and from the airport as well as a side trip to the stadium all arranged ahead of time.

Irina is a wonderful guide. She speaks excellent English and is very friendly. She arranged for three days of tours on our recent visit to Saint Petersburg. Her knowledge of the city's history and art is extensive and she was flexible and able to adjust plans based on the needs of our two kids, including one picky eater. She also helped us arrange transport to and from our lodging which was very helpful. We really enjoyed our tours with Irina and highly recommend her.

Irina was pleasant, cooperative, very knowledgeable, flexible, and she had spoke excellent English. Irina arranged a car with a driver for us. This is the best way to see St. Petersburg and other places of interest in the area. Having a driver solves the parking problem and provided a more enjoyable experience when we were delivered to and picked up from the door step of each attraction. A full day with Irina and the use of the car with a driver was reasonably priced.

Super tour! Irina is a very knowledgeable guide who gets the story and message across perfectly. We had a 6 hour tour with van and driver and saw so much of the city, but still left us wanting more. We stopped for a delicious lunch in a perfect setting. Her command of English is 5-star. We highly recommend Irina especially for an introduction to St. Petersburg. Excellent!
