We have been traveling in Europe for the past 4 weeks and just finished two days with Anna. I have used private guides all over the world and can without hesitation recommend Anna to anyone. She is simply one of the best guides we have ever used. She accomadated our ships delayed arrival and still fit everything in without seeming pressed for time. The two day visit was capped off with a fantastic home cooked dinner with a local family. Great food and we felt as if we left with new friends.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Stan, I appreciate your kind review , thank you ! But most of all I appreciate time I spent with four of you. I was happy to close up this summer season with such a lovely group!

Our tour guide Anna was perfect for our group. Anna was very polite and knowledgeable about her city and county in general. She appeared very genuine and happy to be with us and was excited to show us her city. No questions were off limit. We visited all the historic museums, churches and parks with little wait time in lines. Anna arrived on time on both days and came prepared with tickets for all our activities. Seeing St. Petersburg from the canal was one of our highlights.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: My dear friends, thank you for being such a fabulous group! I was happy to be your guide and to spend to days with you. Anna.

Anna is a wonderful tour guide. We were with her for 2 full days in St. Petersburg. She exceeded all of our expectations. She provided all of our pre-tour documents, her driver and vehicle were wonderful, we saw everything that we wanted to and more. We experienced authentic Russian food and drink at great places. She was very knowledgeable about all of the places we visited. She was very accommodating before we booked so that we planned the specific tour that we wanted. Highly recommend Anna. Thank you

Anna was the perfect guide. Friendly,informative and knowledgeable. Although we had set a tentative itinerary she was flexible and made suggestions to suit our style and what we enjoyed. The Soccer World Cup was on during our tour and the city was very busy but she worked around this and we had no problems.. we came away with lots of knowledge about the history and also the people living in the city today. We would recommend Anna to anyone.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Cheryl and Tony, Thank you for being my guests and for your kind feedback. Have a great trip!

Anna was EXCELLENT! This was our first time using Tours By Locals and Anna did such a wonderful job that it will be hard for other tour guides to do as well. We wanted a customized tour of St. Petersburg and we knew what we wanted to see. It was ambitious in the two days we had in the city but Anna said we could see everything we wanted to if we were up to it. She kept us on schedule and made sure we saw all the sites we wanted to see. We fell in love with the city and Anna made it so easy.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much, dear William! I am so glad you that with your great travel experience your memories about St Petersburg are good!

Four of us on a Viking Cruise had the extreme pleasure of spending two days with Anna P. in St. Petersburg area. She was well versed in Russian history and was able to add many details that one might not find on a larger tour. Outstanding English skills both on our tour, but even more important in our pre-tour emails in setting up the tour and the all important tour tickets (your temporary Russian visa). Her choices for our lunches on both days proved to be outstanding! Sept. 6&7 2017

Anna was a very knowledgable guide. Her English was also very easy to understand. Her driver, Paul, was excellent as he dropped us off then picked us up when parking was an issue. Anna was flexible with timing, and ensured we covered all the main attractions in our two day tour. We were able to skip the lines on many things casinos, so we could maximise our time at th various attractions.
Nanette DeanUnited States
Anna was a major factor in St Petersburg being the highlight of our Baltic cruise. Her English was perfect and provided the perfect local color to our Russian experience. Anna and a driver took care of everything and graciously accommodated our slower pace and special tour requests. I highly recommend Anna for your trip.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Nanette, Thank you very much for your review. I appreciate you being my guests. Sending my best wishes! Anna
Oliver DardenUnited States
Anna was an absolutely superb tour guide! Her knowledge of St. Petersburg is simply outstanding but even more importantly she became our friend going out of her way to fulfill every request we had.While she does provide a schedule she always remains flexible to accommodate any needs or changes which may occur. We could have taken one of the large group tours offered by our ship instead of contracting her individualized service and I am so glad we made that choice.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you dear friends, I am so much touched with your words. And Thank you for your choice!

Very rarely you come across people who are passionate about their work. Anna is 1 of the rare tour guides I have come across. The way she explains every single detail with patience and a sweet little smile is simply incredible. It is extremely difficult to satisfy people in a Big Group but in our case we all were very Happy. From the beginning till the end of the tour Anna will make you fall in Love with her City.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Pankaj for this beautiful review. You made my day. Hello to your friends!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Terry, you are very kind! It was a great pleasure to me to meet you both.
