We booked this tour with an english speaking guide to make sure we understood what we were seeing. Well worth it. You could try doing it independently but you would miss so much information. Our guide Olga arrived and was excellent from the very outset. Her knowledge and passion for the tour was exceptional. Peter and Paul fortress excellent, followed by church of the spilled blood and onto St Isaac cathedral. Although we were the only two on the tour we found Olga made us feel like a member of her own family when it came to stop for a traditional russian lunch. When it came to the highlight of the tour which was the Hermitage museum this is where the expert guide Olga made the tour worth every penny. Her knowledge as we said earlier was brilliant. Booking through Get your guide was the first time we have booked experiences online but will definitely be using this website in the future. Rob and Vanessa Newell

Lida was our tour guide and she was AWESOME! She speaks good english and keeps u engaged for 3 hours. She is from St.Petersburg and is very knowledgeable about the city. She has answers to all your questions. Booking was simple on GYG and communication was good prior to the meeting time via whatsapp. I highly recommend this tour.

Olga was very kind and flexible with very good knowledge

Olga picked us up at the cruise ship at the agreed time. She was very flexible regarding the itinerary and explained everything in a good way. We appreciated the time which we spent with her.

The walk in chilled weather was amazing one to do. They do as they write “nothing stops this tour”. The guide Lidia was wonderful and made the tour perfect.
