Olga is very knowledgeable and she truly loves her city. She made history fun and easy for our 3 children ages 14, 12 and 9. Two hours at the Hermitage (seemed short to me, but just right for the kids) and then walk around city center. Highly recommended!!

What a pleasure to have Olga as our private tour guide. She was charming extremely knowledgeable about her country and St. Petersburg. Every where we went and any questions we posed she knew the answer in all detail. Very well organized.Everything went like "Clockwork".

Olga was a great host along side her driver Alexander. Olga was extremely knowledgeable and her great English allow us to understand everything. She was very flexible when we asked her to make some changes and never seemed to be thrown when that occurred. I would highly recommend Olga to anyone who wants a knowledgeable tour guide that is friendly and nice to spend one or two days with as I and my wife and four other friends did. I would rate her ten if I could.

My wife and I had great expectations for our experiences in St Petersburg and because of Olga and her tour our expectations were exceeded! Her great knowledge and love for the city made this city and tour the highlight of our terrific Baltic ocean cruise. Unlike other large group tours we traveled in the comfort of a comfortable small van and saw many more sights including the highlights. Olga also answered all of our questions about everyday life in Russia.We left loving the city. Thank you Olga.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Jim, thank you very much for the great review and kind words. That was a pleasure for me to be on the tour with you. Hope to see you again in St.Petersburg

Let me say this simply: Olga knows everything about this beautiful city, it's hiatory, people and art. She is pleasant, a good listener and very accommodating. We enjoyed our entire experience with her. We learned so much more than we would have on our own and were able to accomplish many visits. Plus her lunch recommendations are top notch and high quality. Thanks Olga!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Grant, thank you so much for your kind words. I also had a very good time with you. Thank you for photos! I got them. Hope to see you again in St Petersburg:)

Olga was very knowlegeable and conscientious as she escorted us through many locations around the city. She was responsive and considerate, and we felt that we were with a friend in St. Petersburg. We enjoyed lunch at a local fast food place that was delicious. Olga was especially knowledgeable about the artwork in the Hermitage, which was a highlight for us. We also had an outstanding driver who very safely navigated us around the city. We highly recommend this pair - I am sorry for not knowing name of d

Olga was fantastic, professional, extremely knowledgeable and made our St Petersburg experience exceptional. It was not much more than the cruise options and we had a driver, guide and a tour tailored to what we wanted. No queues, inside at every venue and able to linger longer and ask questions when we were interested in something particularly. Olga shared her experiences living in St Petersberg freely. No problems at customs/passport checks. All fabulous. Highly recommended!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Marnie, thank you very much for your kind words. That was my pleasure to be with you both.

We really enjoyed our two day tour of St Petersburg with Olga. She speaks English very well with a soft accent (English also is not our first language) and was very courteous. She really knows a lot about the history of her country and we enjoyed every moment of it. My husband is not a fan of visiting museums but he really enjoyed it with Olga since she has such vast knowledge about history, art, etc. Highly recommended, she was great.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Elizabeth, thank you so much for your kind words. I wish you and your husband all the best and hope to see you again in St.Petersburg.

Olga was a great tour guide for our family group ( 4 adults and 2 children 10 and 15 ) She met us on time each day in Saint Petersburg. It was an extremely busy time there and she knew how to manage the crowds and secure us a position to see what we wanted. Olga made reservations at a typical Russian restaurant with great food. She was very observant to our needs especially our 2 boys.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Elizabeth, thank you very much for the reference. My best regards to your boys and all the rest.

What a wonderful woman! Olga is an excellent email communicator; that calmed our nerves about heading off in St. Petersburg. She took fabulous care of us, often asking if we needed a toilet or coffee which was very much appreciated. She set up a wonderful, jam-packed, two-day tour that we wanted and she was very knowledgeable and informative. We appreciate her professionalism and hard-work. We were able to see so much more than others who took excursions arranged through the cruise ship. We highly recomme

Olga is a fantasic guide. Her tours were well prepared, she took care of every thing including ticket purchases. We were a group of 5, she was able to give us a guided tour to most of the must sees of Saint Petersburg, her home town. Her command of the English language was excellent. A perfect five days adventure was had by all.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear all, thank you very much for the nice comment. That was my pleasure. Misha like the koala and say thanks to you.
