Our guide Anastasia took us on a three day tour of the highlights of Saint Petersburg. She was engaging, extraordinarily informative, and flexible to change itinerary to suit our desires. Her English is perfect. She efficiently got us through some of the more congested areas, saving our group a lot of time. We saw unusual areas not included in traditional bus tours, including a trip on the Metro, local markets, restaurants. Highly recommended.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Alan, thank you very much! It was a great pleasure to work with you!

Anastasia G is an excellent guide and I highly recommend hiring her for your visit to SPG! I love modern art, so Anastasia created a custom tour featuring the Russian Museum's modern collection and the spectacular Erarta Modern Art Museum. That day was the highlight of my entire Baltic cruise! She is incredibly knowledgeable, professional, friendly, responsive and easy to communicate with. Don't take a standard crowded group tour - treat yourself to an exceptional tour and great memories with Anastasia G!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your kind words!:)

Anastasia and our driver Egor were really great her knowledge of St Petersburg palaces and churches was amazing and his knowledge of the roads and traffic was also great, we got everywhere we wanted safely and not scary. Anastasia also organised two good lunches and on the second day a wheelchair for one of our party.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Daniel, thank you!

I had 10 people ages 10-85 and we all had a fabulous time. I feel like we saw an amazing amount in the time we were in port. Best money I spent on the entire trip. Soviet Arcade and Subway were such fun for the kids.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Lori, thank you! It was such a pleasure to work with you! Please give my regards for everyone:)

Anastasia provided us with a fantastic tour of St. Petersburg, Russia. She was extremely knowledgeable on all of ares we toured and provided us wit a great history lesson. She was able to get us thru the lines quickly which allowed us to make the most of our day. I would highly recommend her to others interested in seeing a lot in one day.

Valerie RobbinsUnited States
All was great except tour of Hermitage. We had many talks about Hermitage and we wanted as much time as possible. We wanted to see only Old Masters and Impressionists. She dragged us through rooms we didn't care about then rushed through the things we wanted to see. If we had known, we would have skipped lunch for more time in Hermitage. But she bought tickets that didn't let us in until 2:30. We also had a few other problems. She did a great job of finding WC for me and places to sit.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Valerie, 1. You had a tour around the Hermitage complex from 14.30 to 18.00 then I double checked that you wanted to return to the cruise ship and I accompanied you to the ship. All in all we spend exactly 4 hours on the Hermitage that we had been discussing since May, 5. 2. It’s not possible to reach the paintings without viewing some interiors on the way. 3. I offered to try Russian cuisine during lunch break and I double checked before we went to the restaurant. Most travellers ask to try it.
Anastasia is a well organized professional guide who knows exactly what to show you in her magnificent city St. Petersburg. We had two days with her and she did all the sightseeing in comfort, without worrying about schedules and entrance tickets. She is knowledgable, provides historical details of visited sites and she knows where to take you to see the best in this unbelievable city. We asked for hydrofoil excursion to Peterhof and visit to the impressionist painters at Hermitage and she arranged it!!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Iosif, it was a great pleasure to work with you!!!!:)
Craig BarlowUnited States
Anastasia was an amazing and knowledgable tour guide! Our van had some mechanical issues so she got another one which ended up not being as nice for which she felt bad, but she made up for it by throwing in a free hour long river cruise. St. Pete is a beautiful city and I can't recommend Anastasia highly enough. She was awesome!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Craig, thank you very much for your feedback!

Anastasia is a professional, competent, knowledgeable guide. She accommodated our needs by meeting us at the cruise terminal, provided a custom tailored panoramic city tour in a comfortable car with a professional driver, a short boat ride and some walking. She delivered everything promised and more. We would recommend her highly! Susana & Peter Florian - Washington, DC - USA

Nous étions moi et ma femme avec Anastasia et son chauffeur. Ils ont été très professionnels. Mme Anastasia a des connaissances sur l'histoire russe qui ont été hyper intéressantes pour nous. Il est certain que le nombre de touriste qui se déplacent dans cette ville fait en sorte qu'il faut prévoir quelques heures entre certains sites mais ils valent le déplacement. Elle nous a emporté dans un restaurant russe typique que nous avons adoré et qui a coûté environ 70$ canadien pour les 3. Je la recommande
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Francois, thank you!

Heather SargentNew Zealand
Anastasia has been most helpful in looking after transfers from the railway station to our hotel and from our hotel to the airport. Our walking tour with her was amazing, she covered every aspect of St. Petersburg, and went out of her way to ensure we saw the best of the city. Highly recommended. Thank you Anastasia for all you have done.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Heather, That was a pleasure to work with you!!!

Unforgettable St Petersburg is exactly what Anastasia and our driver delivered. Very easy to find one another after disembarking our cruise ship. Anastasia was ready for all our demands. She is very knowledgeable and took her time to answer all our crazy questions. We highly recommend Anastasia for a tour. She is nothing short of amazing. Every landmark we went to was even more beautiful than we could have imagined. My dream truly came true with Anastasia. Wish we had more time.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Sonya, thank you very much! Really hope to see you once again!:)
Had a wonderful time in St Petersburg with our local guide Anastasia. She planned out a detailed itinerary around the dates and time that we have available as we were there for the World Cup matches. She's very attentive to our needs during the tour, flexible, punctual and was knowledgeable on all the sights. We also did not have to queue at the sights as she arranged us through "the fast track" lane despite the large queues present. I highly recommend Anastasia for a hassle free tour and a great time.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Ronnie, thank you very much! Hope to see you in Saint Petersburg once again!:)
