This was our 2nd trip with Nikolai as our tour guide. He is very knowledgeable about St. Petersburg. This trip there were 5 of us and he arranged for a van to take us to the specific sites we wanted to see and added some an additional side trip. He kept our 10 year and 13 year old grandchildren interested in what we were seeing. Nikolai even made arrangements for ballet tickets for us to see Swan Lake - great seats. His English is very good. I highly recommend Nikolai.

Nikolai is as knowledgeable and personable a guide to St. Petersburg as one could ask for. He is also very patient and flexible, as we had to change our requested itinerary more than once due to some mobility issues, and he was always ready to accommodate us. Ultimately he gave us exactly the overview of the city that we needed. We went back to one quirky place he showed us and loved it, and he also helped us get tickets to a show. We recommend him without hesitation.

Nikolai was just great. He was super-flexible on matters outside *our* control. He did all we asked, and more. His information was helpful and useful. I only wish we'd found him on the first day of our trip so we could have looked at more places with him. Strongly recommend!

Nikolai did a great job of getting us to and around the sites that we were not able to see with the large tour group we had been with. It was a great day and a grand way to finish our time in St. Petersburg.

Nikolai's knowledge of St Petersburg is amazing. There wasn't a single place inside or outside of the city that he did not have full knowledge of. A great tour and a great day spent with a wonderful guide. Felt like seeing the city with a friend, not a guide

This was our second tour with Nikolai and was intended to focus on the less tourist-oriented aspects of St. Petersburg, including markets, parks, subway stations, canals, roof-top views, etc. Creatively designed. Nikolai is a pleasure to be with and is extremely knowledgeable about the history, architecture, and culture of St. Petersburg and the royality that inhabited it. Highly recommended
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Visiting non touristic places of St. Petersburg is something special for those who want to see a little bit of life of locals. It was my pleasure to introduce you this side of St. Petersburg!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Natanica! I am glad you enjoyed those 3 evenings in St. Petersburg. Thank you for boking this tour with me. Nikolai
