Testimonials

PetersburgExpert customized a trip for my friends and me for incredible Off-the-beaten-path tour. It felt more like walking around the city with friends than a booked tour for a group of tourists. The guide had excellent English and always offered additional help. She showed us gorgeous Metro stations, fabulous apartment houses and even took us to the roof where we saw the beauty of this incredible city from the bird's eye view. It was an ideal option for the third day of our vacation when we had already visited the main attraction of the city. Every part of our trip was perfect and it wouldn't have been without PetersburgExpert.

We had a wonderful private tour with PetersburgExpert. Our guide's knowledge of the sites we visited was exceptional. He knew the answers to all our questions. I'm sure his depth knowledge made the visits to museums and cathedrals an absolute pleasure. We bypassed lines and went to sites at good times to avoid crowds. This showed us that everything was well-organized in advance especially for us. We could not have asked for more. Booking up with PetersburgExpert was truly the best thing we could have done.
