Jj K: Maria was incredible. She was not only a guide for the day but a friend for life. The opportunity to spend a day with her learning about Russian history, culture, politics and life in that great country was amazing. The caviar and champagne at the Ritz Carlton for lunch overlooking Red Square and St. Basil's will be a life time memory. Guide Guru coordinated our trip from St. Petersburg to Moscow via Sapstan. If you are arriving in St. Petersburg on a cruise ship, go with Guide Guru. You will have a far better tour at 60% of the cruise ship price and be sure to ask for Maria as your guide. Having traveled to over 46 countries and taken many tours, Maria was the best tour guide we have ever had the privilege of spending a day with."  
Camille P.: Wow, wow, wow, this was a great time! We were met at the cruise dock by a very lovely young lady who spoke perfect English. No problems leaving the ship without a visa, Guide Guru made the whole experience easy & affordable, compared to the cruise lines prices. We spent 2 days with Maria who is the absolute best, we were a group of 8, and she got us express entrance into all the sights. We traveled in an air conditioned Mercedes mini van, which got us close up to all attractions. She is professional and knowledgeable, we didn't miss a thing! One day we went to Moscow, we were met again at the cruise dock taken to the train station, and took the high speed train to Moscow. There we were met by our guide, she was the best, best, best! We spent a full day with her, first in a car then walking, and subway. We can't say enough about her passion , knowledge, and the wonderful day we spent, again we saw it all. Guide Guru is the only way to go!!!"   Read more reviews
