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
The 2 days (each from 8.30 a.m. to 6.30 p.m.) were organized in the best possible way. Our guides (Katja and Irina) were very competent, could answer every question and requests were quickly organized (trip with the metro and boat trip). A change in the visit program (due to Putin's visit to St. Petersburg at the same time) was carried out very carefully and was absolutely not disruptive. With VIP tickets there were no waiting times (we were led past the queues). The very small group size was very pleasant (on the 1st day there were four of us with our friends, on the 2nd day an English couple joined them). The guides always informed the very careful driver of the van, who was already waiting for us at the exit of the sights. I will have very fond memories of St. Petersburg. All very recommendable.
All went as planned- we had different guides on the two days but both were engaging, professional and informative. This arrangement really helps you make the very most of a visit which would otherwise be quite challenging- covering distances, avoiding queues and navigating the sites to best advantage. Having a 4- course restaurant lunch provided a welcome break - we heard people on other tours were given sandwiches! Great value- couldn’t recommend Marina Wilson highly enough!
A very busy two days. Our guide, Valeria from Marina Wilson Tours, was very informative and gave us a wonderful experience of St Petersburg. There were only the two of us on the tour so we had the personal attention of our guide and driver. Entry to Catherine's Palace and the Hermitage was very speedy and 'beat the crowds'. Lunches were excellent and in unusual restaurants rather than the usual mass cratering of most tours.
To get to know the sights of St. Petersburg (we were on a cruise) with tight time frames. Waiting times have been reduced to a minimum with foresight. Our guides Katya and Irina did a good job, as did our driver Juri. Keep it up!
