    Andrey our guide fetched us promptly and on time from our hotel for, what proved to be a fully immersive and amazing walking tour of all the main sights , palaces and museums St Petersburg has to offer. We would fully recommend this tour to all who have good mobility as there is a large amount of walking involved! However the walking was very worthwhile as we saw so much more than you would in a car or bus. I'm sure the 48 hours would not have been as good without our guide Andrey, as his knowledge humour and helpful tips made it a wonderful 2 days!

    Danil was a great tour guide for us and spoke English very well too! Danil made things very easy for us, as he met us in our hotel lobby both days, and even used his personal vehicle to show us around on the 2nd day. Danil showed us several of the main sights and spent extra time with us, we enjoyed meeting him and even become facebook friends!

    We highly recommend this tour. In particular, since we were traveling with our kids, it was important to skip the lines at the entrance of museums and attractions. Having your own local guides makes the travel experience more enjoyable.

    The local guides Andrei and Maria were excellent and knew the city very well. They accommodated our requests in terms of time management and provided good restaurant and shopping options

    The booking experience with Viator/Friendly Local guides was also very simple.

    We had an absolutely fantastic time with Pauline in St Petersburg. She took us to the most amazing places, like the Church on Spilled Blood, Hermitage, Nevskiy Prospect, Peter and Paul Fortress and many, many other beautiful and interesting things. She accomodated our every wish.
    Pauline really went out of her way to make our visit extra special, and was a delight to spend the time with.
    Our very, very deepest thanks to her for an unforgettable trip of a lifetime.
