Super tour! Irina is a very knowledgeable guide who gets the story and message across perfectly. We had a 6 hour tour with van and driver and saw so much of the city, but still left us wanting more. We stopped for a delicious lunch in a perfect setting. Her command of English is 5-star. We highly recommend Irina especially for an introduction to St. Petersburg. Excellent!
Absolutely wonderful. With such short period of time, we could experience so much from this tour without any rush. Irina was very friendly and informative, each landmark we visited become more interesting with the background information. Her recommendation was also spot on. Thank you so much for making our visit memorable.

The perfect way to see the main highlights of this wonderful city with the perfect guide for the job. Irina had the knack of ensuring that we were in the right place at the right time to get the most from our time; so much was included but at no time did we feel rushed. There was even time for shopping and a wonderful lunch in a local restaurant that we would not have found alone. So many amazing sights with Irina's incredible local knowledge - the only way to see St Petersburg! Highly recommended.

Our group of 4 hired Irina for 3 days just before our Viking cruise last week of September 2016. We texted back and forth numerous times planning our time together. Irina speaks perfect idiomatic English. She is fun, knowledgeable, flexible. My main reason for choosing her was for her to take us to see what we wanted to see in the Hermitage museum, and then we left the rest up to her. We used her private driver and saw so much more than we could have on our own. We were 100 percent satisfied.

My wife and I spent a wonderful day with Irina - who went out of her way. Irina is extremely familiar with Saint Petersburg, she will get you to all sights - providing sophisticated in depth historical background, mixing in insights about contemporary Sait Petersburg. Irina is flexible and will adjust to your interests, if you so desire. We can recommend Irina to anybody who wants to explore this wonderful city. Irina is a 5 Star+ very kind tour guide.
We had a great tour with our two young children

Irina was a dream guide! She took my three kids in stride. We had a long list of things we wanted to see, but she never made us feel rushed. She allowed us to linger when we wanted to and never once pushed us to the next attraction. Her commentary was fascinating, her English flawless and her personality was so sweet! We had a very memorable day with her and would recommend her in a heartbeat!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Anna! It was a memorable day for me too, as the kids were really great travelers! It was a real pleasure for me.

I toured St Pete with Irina P. on the last of a 10-day visit to Russia. I was worn out from tons of walking prior to this day, so it was a welcome format for me: an air conditioned Mercedes with an expert driver and Irina feeding me facts in excellent English. We stopped often throughout the 6-hour tour, for photo ops and interior tours of sites. The temp was 34 C. (nearly 100 degrees F.) but Irina was determined to deliver the full content of the tour. I highly recommend Irina P.
