Pavel Is an excellent guide, very well prepared. He has guided us for an introductory overview of St. Petersburg, which has allowed us to properly enjoy the days after.

What a great day spent with Pavel! Pavel was so easy to understand, gave easy-to-follow explanations, pointed out unusual sights, and accommodated me and my interests. I never felt rushed, walked at a pleasant pace, and experienced a totally satisfying day with Pavel. He is friendly, knowledgeable, and took great care that I was comfortable. There are many choices for guides in St. Petersburg, and I am so happy Pavel was mine.

Pavel was on time. We headed out to the Faberge Museum which ended up being one of my favorite places to visit in Russia. He made sure we did every kind of transportation including taxi, multiple metro stations, and of course walking so that we could see the city in every way. We enjoyed the culture first hand and an amazing lunch at a little cafe down the street from the Church of our Savior on Spilled Blood. This being our last day, I can honestly say that ToursByLocals helped make our visit memorable.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Debbie for the review! I was really privileged to meet you and Jim and show you something different to what they offer on those large group tours. We were a little bit lucky having the Faberge museum cool and quiet ;)

Pavel was a friendly and knowledgeable guide. He was very helpful in organising visas for the day and arranging a customised tour to work with our 8 month old baby. We really enjoyed using public transport and walking to get around as this gave us a real russian experience. We would not hesitate to use Pavel again.
