LynP43.:  We recently used "Guide Guru" for a private tour of St. Petersburg. We could not have been happier with the entire experience. It started with Natalia, the administrator, who was quick, efficient, flexible and a pleasure to deal with in making the arrangements. Inna, our guide, spoke perfect English and was extremely knowledgeable. She is a warm, charming person and added immensely to the enjoyment of our time in St. Petersburg. Vladimir, our driver, was a definite asset as well. He was cheerful, helpful, polite and professional. Together, they made us feel like real superstars. In short, NOTHING COULD HAVE BEEN BETTER! 
LuizFortes: Guide-Guru was fantastic. Great guide and driver. Vera, our guide, showed enormous knowledge of Russian and city history answering every single question we had, besides her great sympathy. Beautiful city and awesome tour.  Read more reviews
