Adaprivate guide st petersburg
Best guides in St Petersburg My husband and I had a two day stay in St. Petersburg on a cruise in September of 2013. was our tour company. Our first day was the second day of the G20 Leadership Conference. We were concerned that some of our highlights might be eliminated, but other than hydrofoils being banned from Peterhof back into the city, everything was wonderful. We had Ada as our guide and Vasily as our driver. Ada's English was excellent and her knowledge of Russian history amazing. Vasily was an excellent driver when traffic was more dense than normal and we were not delayed. Ada had been recommended by friends and we were grateful that Natalia was able to let her be our guide. And speaking of Natalia, she paired us with two ladies who were fun to share our tour with. We had wonderful weather and our first, but hopefully not our last visit to St. Petersburg. Best guides in St Petersburg Emily H
Best guides in St Petersburg My wife and I did a private tour of St Peterburg with Guide-Guru in September of 2013 with Ada as our guide and Surgio as the driver. It was worth every penny. We never had to wait in long lines and Ada was amazing with her knowledge of Russian history and for those of us who are English speaking she was easily understood. Another plus was working with Natalia to make all the arrangements. Some friends recommended Guide-Guru and we are doing the same to other friends. Best guides in St Petersburg Bruce H. 
Best guides in St Petersburg We booked a 2 day tour in St. Petersburg with Guide Guru and have to say it was wonderful. Ada was an excellent guide for an intensive program throughout this beautiful city. We were able to get into everything quickly and without any hassles.This tour became the highlight of our trip to the Baltic. Ada made sure we saw all that we wanted to plus she took us to a wonderful store for shopping and an excellent restaurant for lunch. Dimitri, our driver, and Ada made our visit special. No problems, no worries, and no regrets. Strongly recommend this tour company. Best guides in St Petersburg Alan, 

Tatianaprivate guide st petersburg
Best guides in St Petersburg We booked a two day private tour with tour guru while in st Petersburg on a cruise. The reservation process was very easy and quick. Our tour guide Tatiana was lovely. She was very informative. You could tell that she loved people and loved her job. They totally catered the tour to us. She even accompanied me to the Louis Vuitton store in St Petersburg! A lot of people on our cruise didn't know that you could do this,but we had them pick us up again after we showered and changed the first day and took us out to dinner. Natalia suggested a great restaurant with true Georgian cuisine. It was a real treat. I would highly recommend tour guru to anyone going to Russia. Best guides in St Petersburg Sharon B. 

Svetlanaprivate guide st petersburg
Best guides in St Petersburg Guide Guru definitely set the bar VERY HIGH for any other tours that I decide to take during this lifetime. Svetlana, our tour guide, was EXCELLENT! She began the day with, "Goodmorning" and told us everything she could about St. Petersburg until she ended the day with, "Goodnight-see you tomorrow". My group could not have dreamed for a better tour, let alone a better tour guide. This was the best ever! Guide Guru picked us up from the cruise port and took us all over town to see: Peterhof and Catherine's Palace, The Gardens, The Hermitage, the Hydrofoil, lunch at city restaurants and much, much more. You didn't hear it from me; but after polling fellow cruise passengers we found, our Guide Guru tour was far better than the planned cruise ship shore excursion(s). I definitely recommend you as for Svetlana for this tour! She was very thorough and did not skip a beat. I love Guide Guru! I am certain that those of you who decide to hire them, will too! Best guides in St Petersburg Jill, 
Best guides in St Petersburg Four of us recently toured with Guide-Guru in St. Petersburg, traveling to Pushkin for the Catherine and Alexander Palaces, and to the Alexander Nevsky Lavra. We were on a Viking cruise (more elsewhere) and certainly, Viking did very well within the limitations of guiding a large number of travellers, but the Guide-Guru experience was fabulous. Svetlana is knowledgeable and utterly charming, and Ivan(?), the driver, performed traffic miracles. Best guides in St Petersburg Margaret, 

Annaprivate guide st petersburg
Best guides in St Petersburg We recently took a Baltic cruise. My husband and I decided to use a local tour company instead of the tours offered by the cruise line. We decided to go with Guide Guru and we were very happy. Right from the first contact they were very responsive and answered all our questions quickly. We were met at the port by our guide, Anna, and our driver Dimetri. We had two very complete days and saw all the sights that we were counting on. Anna was very well informed and not only told us about the things we were looking at but also included Russian history. We would recommend this company very highly. Best guides in St Petersburg Kenneth

Elenaprivate guide st petersburg
Best guides in St Petersburg We so enjoyed our tour - Elaina was just wonderful - our entire group was very impressed with your tour & of course Elaina & our bus driver Paul ( I think) - who was a wealth of knowledge & information - we asked her if she had a photographic memory & she just laughed! I think she absolutely must! I will definitely recommend your company. Thank you again for a very memorable time in St Petersburg. Best guides in St Petersburg 
Best guides in St Petersburg Hi Natalia, thank you for arranging our stay in SPB. Both my wife and I were thoroughly thrilled with our stay there and the services provided by Guide-Guru. Both Elena and Dimitri are outstanding persons. We both regretted not having Elena on the last day of our tour. She is something and a pleasure to hear her during her explanations of all things in SPB. It was so entertaining and her enthusiasm was also communicative. Our stay there was really memorable. We will definitely endorse, you, Elena and Dimitri to anyone who would ask us for our opinion. Thank you once again for this first time experience. Who knows, we might see each other again in summer. Best guides in St Petersburg Joe, 
Best guides in St Petersburg I organised a 2-day strenuous tour with Natalia, for a total of 14 people made up of 4 groups. Natalia was very attentive in the run up to the tour and always answered questions quickly. She tailored our tour to meet our needs and with the exception of the wrong meal being served on day-1, everything ran like clockwork. Our driver Igor and guide Ellen were both excellent. Ellen's knowledge was very impressive. An important fact to note is that the guides are freelance so bear this in mind if tempted to pay the higher prices of other companies as the guides seem to work for all of them and they all seem to be very knowledgeable! I highly recommend Guide-Guru, with a group of 14 you can get the full on 2-day package including lunches and the hydrofoil from the Peterhof for US $240 each if you pay in cash. That is around US $200 less than most cruise ships offer and if you opt for the Cruise ship's tours you are likely to end up being on a large coach with 50 people in your group. 14 people in a modern large mini-bus with aircon was so much better, particularly when being ushered through the palaces and museums. We were on a Baltic cruise and did our own sightseeing in every other city but it is just not practical in St Petersburg so use Guide-Guru, you won't be disappointed. Best guides in St Petersburg Kevin, 
Annaprivate guide st petersburg
Best guides in St Petersburg My husband and I took your two day tour on May 24 and 25 from the Eurodam. Our guide was Anna and our driver Dimetri. We had a wonderful two days with Anna. Everything was so well organized and she gave us so much interesting information and history about St. Petersburg. She and our driver got us to all the sites quickly and the van was very comfortable. At the Hermitage she got us through crowds and often had us in a location where we were the only ones for a few minutes. This helped us see things very well. We would recommend your tour group. Thank Anna for a great, unforgettable two days. Best guides in St Petersburg
Tatianaprivate guide st petersburg
Best guides in St Petersburg My group of four did a 2 day intensive tour of St. Petersburg with Tanya of Guru Guide. It was fantastic! We picked the standard 2 day intensive tour and then tailored it to meet our interests. Tanya was there to meet us as we got through customs at the port. We were driven around town in a 6 passenger, air conditioned van by Alexander and Serge. The drivers were very courteous and did a wonderful job of dropping us off and picking us up as close the attractions as possible. Tanya was personable, knowledgeable, attentive and very pleasant to spend 2 very full days with. She did a fantastic job navigating us through crowds (and there are A LOT of crowds at every attraction), keeping us on schedule and revealing to us the wonders, history and sights of St. Petersburg. She also did a great job finding clean restrooms for my senior age mother. This tour was the highlight of our Baltic cruise! Best guides in St Petersburg Jennifer, 

Albinaprivate guide st petersburg
Best guides in St Petersburg It was our first time here in the city, so we sought out a local tour company to help us with the experience. From the beginning, Guide Guru made sure we were in good hands. They sent a driver, Alexander, to the airport to pick us up and take us back to our hotel. In the morning, the manager, Natalia, personally greeted us and got everything squared away. Our guide, Albina, has been the best. She tailored our tour to suit our interests, and in addition to the usual museum tours and sight seeing, she took us on tours of local markets and the metro at our request. She also rearranged the tour schedule when we spent too much time shopping at a local gift store. Albina went out of her way to arrange dinner reservations and secure tickets to local shows for us when our three day tour with her was over. She also arranged to have Alexander drive us to and from the show when we had concerns about hiring a local taxi ourselves, since we don't speak Russian. This put us at ease, as he is attentive and escorted us on foot to and from the theater. This has been the best trip, and we feel that Guide Guru has made this possible. Best guides in St Petersburg Mai,

Best guides in St Petersburg Abbiamo prenotato con loro biglietti treno ed escursione privata di un giorno con guida in italiano. Molto veloci nelle risposte e competitivi nei prezzi (altre agenzie praticano tariffe molto superiori), il servizio è stato più che buono. La guida parlava un italiano perfetto, era molto preparata e ci ha fornito moltissime informazioni, anche "fuori programma", oltre che essere disponibile a variazioni sul programma. Best guides in St Petersburg Emanuela
