We spent an amazing day seeing St. Petersburg with Alexander. From the beginning he was very helpful in planning this trip. Also taking care of the Visas we needed to leave our cruise ship. We learned so much in this one day. Alex was very knowledgeable at every stop we made. We were even able to visit a local grocery store & he helped us pick out some favorite snacks, candy & vodka! I highly recommend a day with Alexander if you are visiting St. Petersburg.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Heather! We had a great day! Visiting local grocery store was fun and something special for me too! :)))

We would highly recommend Alexander and his tour of St. Petersburg. He has much knowledge about his country and all of the places we visited. We had 5 teenagers with us and they all enjoyed the tour also.

Alexander had covered an itinerary chosen by me. The only things that stopped it from being 5 stars were that he hadn't pre-booked a venue for lunch which led to a delay (he did manage to organise lunch while we were on the canal/river cruise which was lovely) that didn't allow us souvenir-shopping time, which we had to do at the cruise terminal. The 8-seater vehicle and driver were great. Quite an expensive day trip.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for your response Eleanor! We had a really great day and we could see as much as possible for such a short period of time. I wish you had one extra hour so that you could do souvenir shopping.

We were a group of 13 on a private tour of the major attractions in St Petersburg... we were with Alex for two days. Overall we were very satisfied with what Alex and his level of knowledge of the area and in particular of the major attractions. He has a very good grasp of the history of the area and astonished us with his knowledge of most if not all of the major works of art in the cathedrals and the Hermitage

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your response Andy. It was my pleasure to share my knowledge about St Petersburg and its rich history with you and your group.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much! It was my pleasure to spend two days with you and show you around our beautiful city and its Imperial suburbs.

My wife handled all details of a wonderful visit to St. Petersburg. Upon meeting Alexander, I discovered she had found an expert who was so knowledgeable, courteous, and thorough in his explanation of both culture and Russian history. We allowed him to set the agenda on not only must-see tourist sites, but also the St. Petersburg that is emerging in the 21st century. He also took great pics of us along the way. I recommend him without reservation to anyone who wants to experience the true St. Petersburg.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Jerry! I was really glad to share with my life experience and tell about modern life in Russia. And you had a good photographer with you along the way. :)

As a travel agent I've worked with guides all over the world. Alexander S is one of the best. Planning was easy thru his prompt emails. We spent 2 full days with him, on a custom tour that featured the highlights of St. Petersburg. He made our visit the trip of a lifetime, taking us to a local café for an authentic Russian dining experience, and sharing his knowledge of the Hermitage, Catherine's Palace, The Peterhof & many other treasured sites and stops in this incredible city. Thank you Alexander!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your great feedback Julie! I did my best to make your visit to St Petersburg the trip of a lifetime. And I'm here to guide this beautiful city for your friends and customers! Please say hello to Jerry, Karen and Jon! -- Alexander

This is a great tour! We hit all of the highlights and learned so much from Alex along the way. Alex and our driver took great care of us and even added several extra stops when one of our kids was not feeling well. Alex also got us past the very long line at the Hermitage and kept us on schedule.
