I visited Saint Petersburg with my family for a holiday in October. Museums were empty because of restrictions so we enjoyed it very much with our guide and took lots of pictures. The only downside we had to wear masks all the time.

It was an awesome experience, Nadia has lots of knowlodge of everything in St Petersburg, she took me even to see one Catholic church wich was not in the itinerary, because i said i wanted to see. She also takes really great photos and knows all the best spots and angles to do so. Thank you, Nadia. Greetings from your now brazilian friend.

The tour was delightful from the first to the last minute. We were picked up right from the hotel and spent 2 days with Olga (our guide) and Antony (our driver). The places they took us were amazing. We were lucky to be traveling in the winter the museums were barely crowded. Me and my husband thoroughly enjoyed our visit and thanks to Olga the history came alive in our imagination. I would recommend this tour and the tour guide Olga without hesitation.
