Brian P: The whole experience from emailing Natalia to discuss, arrange and fine tune the two days to being accompanied by the guide Maria and the driver Alexander was excellent. Would we use Guide Guru again, use very definitely. 
We visited all the primary attractions, along with some specific requests for the food markets and the ballet and at all stages Maria explained not only the relevant history and background of the various sights, but also little additional nuggets which you would not necessarily get with a conventional excursion of 40+ people in a coach.
St Petersburg is a wonderful destination to visit and deserves at least two full days to appreciate the various visual and historical delights.
