A Recent Review of this tour

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.
