This was a private family tour of Catherine the Great's Summer Palace, the Hermitage and the Winter palace with hotel pickup and drop off in a clean late model minivan The tour was efficiently run with punctual pickup and drop off at the various locations. There was a seperate driver and tour guide. The guide gave an oustanding background to the Romanov family which resembled the detail of a Russian novel. This was as well as information specific to various exhibits. We had teenage children and our guide initially sanitised parts of the story but we indicated we were happy to tell it as it was and she happily complied. Our children were not upset.
I booked this tour to make sure we got to see the items of interest at the Hermitage. We were lucky, that as it was February, there were only 2 of us on the tour. Our guide, Olga, was friendly, knowledgable and obviously had a passion for art. We learnt a lot on the tour about the history of St. Petersburg, the history of the Hermitage and about the items on display. We are looking forward to our next tour with Olga as our guide.
Our guide Maria has done a great job in showing us the Winter Palace with good English. It is lucky that only our group joined today so that we can get a private tour! Maria is professional and informative and she leads us to a fruitful cultural tour this morning. Time flies with her good work!
Thoroughly enjoyed this guided tour of the Hermitage Museum. Maria was an amazing guide. Her knowledge was outstanding. We would not have wanted anyone other than her. Thank you so much Maria for making our tour perfect. Is there any way I can send a photo to her?
