Tatiana is absolutely passionate about history and art. Her qualifications, work and life experiences and extensive travel give her guide credentials second to none. We could have spent days with her. We made our tour to the Hermitage on a Wednesday late afternoon to facilitate seeing the Peacock Clock in action at 8pm. Very special! Tatiana thank you for sharing your expertise with us. All the very best.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you ! It was a pleasure to meet both of you!

We spent a very fruitful day with Tatiana. She got us into hard to reach locations and off the beaten path sites and her knowledge was impressive.

We were completely delighted with Tatiana as our guide. She was exactly what we wanted, knowledgeable, pleasant, enthusiastic and very very open to our many questions. We had 2 full days in St Petersburg, it was fabulous Just not enough time to see everything We just have to return!! Tatiana was on time, I had input into the planning of our days but took her advise on logistics, her driver was truly excellent, we had the best of times. Thanks Tatiana, you are indeed excellent at your job!

Tatiana and her husband work together. They are a charming and friendly couple with a fun sense of humour. We enjoyed our conversation and time spent with them on this two day tour. Tatiana has been working in the arts and culture scene in Saint Petersburg for many years. She is very knowledgeable and also has great contacts . She is able to arrange an early entrance into the Hermitage which is an exceptional experience. Then once inside she can she is a superb guide. Thank you Tatiana!!

Our tour guide in Russia (Tatiana) was absolutely amazing. She kept our kids interest in the Hermitage museum for hours, which is really impressing in itself. I would highly recommend booking a tour with her, especially with young kids. Everything was planned and taken care of, with transportation and entrance to all the amazing sites we wanted to see.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you. Your kids are amazing. Wishing all of you peace and love!

Our private guided tour with Tatiana was outstanding. Not only does she have a fantastic knowledge about St Petersburg, the Hermitage, Ballet and Opera, she also has a great personality. She made sure that my cousin, who is handicap with her foot, got picked up by car or golf caddy wherever it was possible. It was a pleasure to listen to Tatiana. I highly recommend her and I will definitely book her again. Thank you Tanya.

Спасибо Tatiana! Fantastic tour of the beautiful city of St. Petersburg. While a two-day tour is not enough time to see everything in this vast city, Tatiana was both quick and thorough, showing us in detail the main highlights, while still tailoring the tour to our interests. Her timing was spot on. She beat the crowds and made the most of our time, while not making us feel rushed and giving exceptional detail of the history and culture of the city. I highly, highly recommend Tatiana! До свиданья

Tatiana E. was a fabulous 5 star guide for our two days in St. Petersburg. We had a group of 8, and all of the connections, ticket purchases, line cut-ins, bus rides, meals—went perfectly. Tatiana knows her stuff from having spent many years working and living in St. Petersburg. She is very smart, refreshingly candid, and not afraid to express opinions on all and any topics. She is very proud of her city and country and her country's history---and she kept us very, very buyt during our two days.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mary Ann! Thank you! What a wonderful group!

A+ Guide. Tatiana's knowledge is world class. We booked for a full day tour (with heavy dose of The Hermitage). If you are going to The Hermitage, I strongly recommend that you hire Tatiana. There is no way that we could have covered so much territory at The Hermitage without her. As a family of 5 with 3 kids ages 8 to 14, we thought did an amazing job of explaining the art to the kids and was able to hold their interest throughout the tour. We would absolutely hire her again.

Over the years we have taken numerous private tours. Our tour of St. Petersburg was without a doubt the best tour we have ever experienced. Tatiana and her driver Nickolai were fantastic!! Having previously worked at the Hermitage, Tatiana has an immense knowledge of the history, art, and culture in Russia and St. Petersburg. Thank you Tatiana for providing us with two days of wonderful memories we will always treasure!! Marty Stitt Houston, Texas

Our 2-day tour was better than expected. Tatiana was punctual, gracious, efficient and an extraordinarily good guide. The tour she conducted at The Hermitage was excellent: she was not only an expert on the art work but was also able to avoid the crowds enhancing our ability to spend some time with the pieces she described. Because of her organized approach to the tour we were able to see many more of the wonderful sites in St. Petersburg than we could have on our own. The food was good, too.

Tatiana is an excellent guide. My wife and I were especially interested in seeing the Hermitage in more depth than we were able to do some years ago during a large group tour. Tatiana is an art historian who provided us with insightful commentary on the works of art we viewed during a much more extended tour of the museum than we previously had. She also tailored our tour to include places that we had not previously visited. We highly recommend Tatiana.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you. You are both very special travelers.

We were a family of 5 traveling to SP and had the pleasure of experiencing the beauty of SP with Tatiana.She was simply an amazing guide.A true "local" who really knows and loves her city.Our daughter had studied the siege of Leningrad, so Tatiana made sure to give her explanations with this in mind. Truly an engaging experience.We were privileged to have her arrange a visit to the Hermitage before it opens to the public, so that we could experience the beauty & austerity of the palace without crowds.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Nisha, thank you. It was a pleasure to meet you and your family.

This tour is amazing! Tatiana is wonderful and it was a blessing to have her as our guide! The Hermitage is so vast and she provided us with such a unique and intimate tour. Tatiana took us back in time as we walked up the staircases and gazed upon the grand rooms of the Winter Palace. We then learned about and admired countless works of art by the masters. Tatiana's knowledge of art and history is endless! We learned so much from her and can't thank her enough for such a memorable experience. :)

An extraordinay tour with an exceptionally outstanding guide. If you are going to St. Petersburg, this tour with Tatiana as your guide, should be your only choice. In all of our tours with ToursByLocals, she has been the most engaging, knowledgeable, prepared and accommodating guide. It just doesn't get any better. The tour schedule covers a lot of ground historically and the Hermitage is a must. Tatiana can provide ALL the details. You are missing out if you pass on this tour.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much. I was inspired by you! Hope to see you again in our amazing city!

I was a little nervous about going into St. Petersburg and having the proper paper work but Tatiana provided that to me by email prior to our arrival which made entrance into Russia so easy! We spent 2 full days with her and her driver. I could not even begin to express how pleased we were! She grew up there so her knowledge base of the history of Russia was superb! She is also immersed in the arts and her love for that shows throughout her tours. Two delightful days which we will not likely forget!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you! Best from St.Petersburg!

Thank you so much for a great tour. Smooth, efficient arrangements by e-mail beforehand. Comfortable air conditioned 8-seater for journey with fascinating info about everything we saw. Tatiana is personable, has a love and deep knowledge of art history, and shares it generously with a good command of English. We opted for the Diamond Room at her recommendation which was spot on. Lead by a curator of the rooms - also fascinating and knowledgable. Ended with viewing of sumptuous apartments in palace.
