Margarita was a wonderful guide. We had a group of 4 adults and 1 child ( age 8), she kept everyone's attention. She was very knowledgeable about the city and its history. She assisted us with our itinerary and were able to see everything we wanted in a limited amount of time without ever feeling rushed. Side note: there is ALOT of traffic in the city, to save time, walking is recommended.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your great feedback. I give you a high rating too as you didn't complain, walked well, didn't ask stupid questions. My big thank you to a boy. He was excellent.

"Rita" did an excellent job. Her English is spot on. She was informative, friendly, and provided lots of interesting tidbits. One of our "must do's" when traveling is to find the local HD dealer and get a t-shirt. Not only did she make this happen for us, she also took us to some great, little souvenir shops which were of the standard tourist routes. Highly recommend her.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Billy for your rating and great feedback. You are nice and easy people to guide.

Margarita had wonderful knowledge of the art inside the hermitage and touring us around the area. She has no driver,so unfortunately lots of time was wasted searching for parking spaces at numerous locations. We, as a result ran out of time and were unable to complete our wish list. Beautiful city.

Rita was excellent! Prior to booking our tour, she answered all our questions, proposed a personalized itinerary and was quick with all e-mail correspondence. Our tour tickets (visas) arrived quickly after booking . She has a clean, comfortable auto and is careful in her driving. She was very accommodating and patient with our children (age 3.5y and 6y). She fulfilled all our wish list of things to see and do. She provided history, stories, and answered all our random questions. Very knowledgeable!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Amy for 5 stars and great feedback. I enjoyed guiding your family. The girls are in the list of the best tourits I've ever guided. Real travellers. Thank you.

My husband and I truly loved our day in St. Petersburg with Margarita. She met us at the ferry terminal in her nice, comfortable car, and planned our day according to our requests. We could have never seen so much on our own. Margarita got us in past the long lines at the Hermitage, and took us on an amazing tour. We learned so much about art in our short time there. Margarita tailored our tour according to my husband's needs, since he has mobility issues. Thank you, Margarita!
Travelling with 3 girlfriends, we had a great day with Margarita in St. Petersburg. She was so knowledgeable in so many different areas. Not a question went unanswered.! Love the idea of ToursByLocals. You get such a more personal insight into the city. Thanks Margarita!!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Jill. Thank you for walking well, for listening, for being nice and friendly. I liked guiding you.

I cannot fault the service we received from Margarita. She could not have been more friendly or helpful during our stay. I would recommend both Margarita and St Petersburg to anyone.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Helen! I hope you didn't get lost and all went well the next day.You were easy and nice tourists to guide.
