We were very happy with Vladimir. He knows the city and its history extremely well and is able to pass it in a very understandable manner. He is able to adjust to any potential interest or change in your day program as you please. Do not worry to ask him :) We all enjoyed the day with him very much. Thank you Vladimir. Jan & Family
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Jan, thanks for a word of appreciation; for me it was kind of a Christmas gift to work with your family where everyone is interested in learning new. Wishing you all the best in 2020. New trips and new discoveries!

Vladimir showed me exactly what I wanted to see--how ordinary people lived in St. P. We also had wonderful conversations on literature, history, languages, politics, cooking, dancing, Japanese poetry, etc. etc. He helped me purchase items locals use and wrote down in English directions on how to cook/use them. He helped me resolve airline check-in issues as well. Vladimir was polite, kind and friendly. It was the best and unforgettable day during my stay. Спасибо Vladimir!

Vladimir was a fantastic tour guide for our family. He was so professional and knowledgable about the sights we visited. Visiting two of St Petersburg's gorgeous metro stations, then driving to Peterhoff for the fountains opening ceremony, touring their gardens, then taking the hydrofoil back to the city before seeing the Church of Spilled Blood and then a wonderful lunch with vodka sampling! Last he took us souvenir shopping to a great shop. We recommend Vladimir for a personal tour and a memorable day!

Vlad's walking tour was very useful as our introduction to St. Petersburg. He recommended a good Georgian restaurant for lunch and a gourmet restaurant for dinner that we tried later in the week. He is knowledgeable about history, culture, and language. He took us on a trip through the "people's palaces" in the subway station and we enjoyed the Museum of Political History.
Vladimir is an excellent guide, very knowledgeable not just about about St.Petersburg but European history in general. A very informative and enjoyably day.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for a kind word of appreciation and enjoyable conversations during the trip. Next time come to Russia for longer than a day!

Vladimir was a fantastic guide! He is a true scholar of history and really made it come alive for us. He’s also very flexible and adapted the tour to our needs, teaching us about everything from Renaissance art to the proper way to drink vodka! He’s very approachable and fun, and we were really pleased that we chose him as a guide.
