Cruisecritic st petersburg tours I can tell you that we had wonderful tours with Guide-Guru and Natalia --- never have I been so lucky as to have had such knowledgable guides who got us through several hours of intense sightseeing in extremely crowded venues with such professionalism. With the exception on of one destination (where the scheduled guide took ill) all were exemplary and were lower costs than any of the other tour operators. Cindi M., visited June 2013, Oceania Cruises
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. Donna & Steve, visited July 2013 
What a 2 day experience!! Excellent value and what fantastic persons that took us around the city for 2 days. Ada is the best tour guide I have ever met and the driver, Dimitri, was also superb. We saw all the possible sights, and with so much passion from Ada! They were both so professional and being a small touring group was great compared to the large excursions offered by other companies and the cruise liner. The lunches on both days were great and cannot recommend them enough. I am insisting that a friend who is traveling in August use the services of Guide Guru! Thank you to Ada and Dima - you made our short stay very memorable! George and Morne, Visited in June, 2013  Read more reviews
