Valeria was a friendly, informative person, perfect English & very easy to understand & follow. We had very little knowledge about Russia & it's history but we could sit an exam now and pass. Valeria is so well informed & has such a passion for her job. We felt at ease straight away with her & our driver Anton, who was a pure gent. They went out of their way to accommodate our wishes. We are hoping our daughter & friend will visit St Petersburg & have already recommended they get Valeria when they do.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your pleasant company, inspiration shared with me, curiosity and wonderful time spent together! Thank you very much for your encouraging review and your kind recommendations. Sincerely Yours, Valeria

Valeria was a fantastic guide, we are so happy we booked her for our trip to St Petersburg. She is so knowledgable and friendly and made the whole experience so informative and interesting. This is been a most memorable trip and mostly due to the fact Valeria was our guide. Can't recommend her highly enough.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Lesley and Laurence! Thank you for the fantastic time spent together! The whole tour seemed to be blessed due to your charm, vivid curiosity and wonderful nature of your couple! With love, Valeria
I travelled to Saint Petersburg with my wife and we had the most enjoyable time there. Our guide for two days, Valeria, had a vast knowledge on her city and its history. With her help we had easy access to all sites we wished to visit. Her pleasant and friendly nature made our trip especially valuable. We worked out a very flexible itinerary together, there was nothing impossible for her to organise. I would rate her as one of the best guides I have used during my long history with Tours by Locals.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello George! Thank you for such an encouraging feedback! Still remember our time spent together with utter sense of pleasure and inspiration. I was so happy to meet and communicate with you! Wishing you more exciting travelings and all the best! Sincerely Yours, Valeria

We had an incredible two day adventure with Valeria in St. Petersburg. She was warm, welcoming, and an amazing historian, and we all learned so much as her driver Anton very expertly and comfortably drove us between sights. Valeria handled everything while catering to our interests, including buying tickets, avoiding lines, arranging a really great boat tour and delicious places to sample the local food, finding the PERFECT place to stand as the Peterhof fountains started up, and much more. Thank you!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Yes, Barbara! It was really incredible time spent together! Thank you and in case you need my assistance in Russia you are always welcome! Sincerely Yours! Valeria

Valeria is an excellent tour guide. We had a wonderful experience in Saint Petersburg in Saint Petersburg over a couple days, and she coordinated our entire visit from start to finish.

We came to Saint Petersburg as a group of 15 students from the United States. It was such a pleasure to spend a day exploring the city with Valeria. Prior to our arrival, she organized everything for us, including restaurant reservations, airport and train station transfer by bus, as well as bus transportation and headphones for the tour. She was incredibly thoughtful, giving us lots of useful recommendations. She is incredibly knowledgeable, speaks clearly in English, and communicates very effectively.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Arik, for your encouraging review! Working with you and communicationg with the group were a special delight for me! Wishing you great time in Moscow and nice flight back home!

Valeria was excellent!! We had a wonderful day with her in St. Petersburg. She worked with us throughout the process to come up with the best itinerary for us. Another bonus was that she had a driver, which made it much easier to just jump out and see the sites versus trying to find a parking spot each time there was a stop. We would definitely recommend Valeria and if we make it back to the area we will definitely use her again! Thanks for a great day, Valeria!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Sean, for your company! It was a real pleasure for me! Hope to see you again one day.
