Helen ZagonaUnited States
We spent 2 days with Alexander. He was punctual, knowledgeable and has a good grasp of English. He helped us select our sights well in advance and he took us exactly where we hoped to go. He requested $220. additional for tickets. Be aware that you will pay for his transportation, tickets and meals so it is a bit more than advertised. Also, he can be irritated and impatient if you need a bathroom break. Otherwise, a good tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I had a great historic tour with Helen and Steve for 2 days. Though I'm a bit surprised to hear that I was impatient when we had several bathroom breaks. :)
Alex is very knowledgeable and good control the timing and always follow our steps to let us have a nice journey. Thanks Alex !
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for high rating of my tour, Chinpo Chi! Enjoyed to be your tour guide for all three days! Have a nice trip in Russia!
Alex is very knowledgeable, and also very accommodating. He designed a great tour based on our requests and his experience. It was an excellent experience and great value.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for high rating of the tour, Robin! Enjoyed both days with you and Bernard very much.
Alexander was an excellent guide and very knowledgeable about the city and its history. He took time to find out what we wanted to see and was happy to take detours for sights that took our interest. We were happily exhausted by the end of the two days and thrilled with our new knowledge of St. Petersburg. Thanks you Alexander!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for high rating of the tour, Jennifer! I did my best to show you around as much as possible for less that two days. Enjoyed both days with you and your family!
Alexander constructed a tour for us with two action-packed days, day one Peter and Paul Fortress and the Hermitage, and day two Peterhof with St Isaacs Cathedral. Along the way we got to see a few metro stations as well as Peter the Great's original log cabin, which was offered as an optional extra. Alexander was very knowledgeable about all of these sites, as well as useful advice on which of the other (200!) museums might be worth a visit, and where to go for dinner. All in all, an excellent tour!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Steve, Thanks for your kind words and comments! Usually my customers want me to show as much as possible and I expected it from you and Maria as well. I wish you let me know you were hungry earlier and we could easily have lunch in a good place.

Alexander is a fantastic tour guide. His English is excellent! He knows Russian history, he knows the best sights to see in Saint Petersburg, and he knows the best ways to get around the city making the journey as exciting as the destination. My two teenage sons felt that Alexander's pace was great and he took amazing photos of my family at the various places we visited. I highly recommend Alexander as a tour guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Timothy! I was very happy to show you and your family around Saint Petersburg and Peterhof.
We spent an excellent, comprehensive and in-depth three-day tour with Alexander. He was always on time, courteous and diligent, explaining the essential and pointing out the hidden. His company, knowledge, availability and flexibility made all the difference. Highly recommended.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Hassan! I had a great time with you and your friends! Would be happy to see you again!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Laurence! It is great to hear you enjoyed your time in Saint Petersburg. It was a pleasure to show you around our beautiful city for two days.

We spent three days with Alexander in SP. Communication with him was excellent from start to finish and our planning was in place before we arrived. Alex organised all the entrance tickets for us and often managed to get us to the front of the queues in quick time. On our drive out to Peterhof he recounted the story of the Imperial Family brilliantly. Alex listened carefully to the things we wanted to do and made every effort to ensure our time in SP was fabulous. Highly recommend Alex as a guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Merryn! It was my pleasure to show you around our beautiful city for three great days!
