Highly recommend this tour since you get to see the real life in St Petersburg. The best part was the Russian bath which was truly authentic. Wonderful tour experience!
This was a great tour. Nikolai is both well-organized and knowledgeable about his city. with intelligence and charm, he took us on a interesting adventure that allowed us to have greater insight into this marvellous city. I would gladly participate in any of his other tours.

Very pleased that I spent the afternoon touring with Nikolai. He truly enhanced my visit to Saint Petersburg, and the half-day we spent together made me more comfortable in wandering about on my own. Unexpectedly,the produce market was a highlight - I need to return!

Nikolai is a marvelous, knowledgeable, personable guide who is a pleasure to be with. He created a comprehensive, full-day introduction to the highlights of St. Petersburg, including 2.5 hours at the Hermitage and an evening canal boat ride. Everyone on the tour was entirely pleased with the structure and comprehensive nature of the tour. Highly recommended.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for a good reference! I am glad you enjoyed your visit St. Petersburg!

This tour was the best I had in Russia. The visit to the Banya was worth the trip. The experience with the steam bath, and the Birch branches were more than I had expected. I can't think of anything similar in the states. We were in a real working steam bath. No tourist related frills, just real people doing what they do. Nikolai help us to understand the protocol and procedures, so we didn't look too much like tourists
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Duayne! I am glad you enjoyed esperience of traditional public Russian bath. I myself love the bath and with pleasure take my guests to some of them! Thanks. Niko.
