There were two of us and we chose a private tour which turned out to be magical! Our guide, Elena, transported us to another era, in this magnificent house, and brings to life the wonderful objects before us, giving them back their history and their value. We could no longer imagine a successful visit to this museum without Elena. Almost two hours which appeared two minutes. Thank you Elena, who does not hesitate to speak about other places in Saint Petersburg either and advise in all areas

Our guide Katya was absolutely punctual. She was very friendly and had very good knowledge of the museum. Her English was excellent and she was always ready to help with pictures. The Faberge museum is new, opened only in 2013, but it is a must-visit. The pieces of jewellery and other artefacts by the Faberge company and some other great jewellers of Russia are mind-boggling. The beauty and intricate artwork is just wow. Piece de resistance was the royal easter eggs. I had heard about them, but seeing them is something totally different.
