Polina was prompt professional and fun! When I made a mistake with the amount of tickets needed she was a saviour and had connections to get them last minute. She did not over load us with too many facts and kept it simple for a couple wild and crazy guys.

Our family was extremely happy to pick Polina as our guide. Polina's knowledge about St. Petersburg and the must see attractions meant that we were able to experience the best the city has to offer with the most effective use of time. Our daughter who studied Art History was impressed with her expert knowledge on the art pieces (& architectural restorations) when she guided us through the massive Hermitage Museum Complex, the palaces and important cathedrals. Thank you Polina for being our friend.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your warm words! It was a great pleasure for me to meet your family! Thank

Me, my husband, and 2 sisters recently had Polina as a guide in St. Petersburg, Russia. She was fantastic and very friendly. We had a great time together and saw so many beautiful things. I cannot imagine anyone being a better guide than Polina was. I would rate her as a 5 star plus an additional 3 stars. Fantastic job Polina.

We were a party of four seniors for three days. It was a pleasure to deal with Polina from the first email. She amended the itinerary to include our requests and shepherded the group through each item with well-chosen information and excellent timing. We were never late for the next visit. Dmitry the driver was a very personable accomplice.We shall all be recommending Polina to any interested friends.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Frank! I am very happy I met you party and you personally!
I spent a wonderful day with Polina. She is a very knowledgeable, experienced guide who speaks perfect English. We went to Peterhoff and Catherine's Palace, as well as the Grand Choral Synagogue. I highly recommend Polina as a guide, especially if you wish to cover a number of attractions as she has access to a car. No driver necessary - she handles it all. If you are coming to St. Petersburg, you must look into using her fabulous services to show you this beautiful city.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you) so many good words) i am very happy that i did your stay wonderful.

Polina was a great guide and helped make my limited time in St Petersburg very good indeed. She was quite prompt which I appreciated, and was always in a good/positive mood despite having to show up before the sun came out! Polina's English is top-notch, she is a safe driver (with a new-model car), she appears to know her city inside and out, and she has a quite extensive knowledge of art. Would highly recommend any tour she provides, and would book again myself.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, John!!!!

Two days with Polina were very special. Her knowledge of the city and region, the special cathedrals and palaces we visited, along with their place in history, is amazing. We spent 2 hours in the Winter Palace part of the Hermitage (we had specified the artists we wished to visit), and I am sure that her knowledge of the rest of that Museum is just as phenomenal. The trips to the Pushkin and Peterhof suburbs showed vividly how the Czars and Czarinas of the 17th century onward were such prolific spenders.
