I would highly recommend using Get a Guide when visiting the Hermitage museum, particularly now with the covid protocols in place & numbers of tourists being allowed access into the Hermitage controlled & the routes to choose from. Our guide Tim was very knowledgable & an expert in his field. Before starting out tour he gave us some interesting background & history of the Winter Palace, Alexander Column & the General Staff Building. During our tour of the Hermitage Tim’s talked us through each room, highlighting important details & pointing interesting things to see, which if we were not on a guided tour would be missed, for example how the ceilings & inlaid floors mirror each other in the Throne Room. His art knowledge is vey good & he shared insights into the artists techniques, styles & what to look for in the paintings, which was very interesting.

Tim, our guide was extremely knowledgeable and helpful with all our questions. His english was excellent and the visit of Hermitage was very exciting. We took one at 3pm and due to covid there weren’t many people there. It took us almost 3 hours but with Tim’s guide it was great.

Our guide was great, lots of history knowledge and helped us navigate through what would be of interest to us! 100% recommended taking a guide because you will definitely miss many things otherwise, plus the added advantage of having them tell you the relavent stries

Touring the Hermitage with Tim was an amazing experience, he was knowledgeable and efficient and made the tour fun with interesting anecdotes. Definitely recommended!
