We could not have wished for a better guide than Timofey, his knowledge of St Petersburg's history and culture is outstanding. We ( three of us ) had four days in his company, which we thoroughly enjoyed. He readily shared his stories and love of this city with us, yet was sensitive to our needs in a jam packed itinerary. Apart from the obvious treasures, The Museum of the History of St Petersburg was a highlight for us, as it is not somewhere many tourists would think to visit and gave us a good understanding of the Siege of Leningrad. Thank you Timofey for a wonderful introduction to your city.

Sergei was our guide for a 2 day tour. He was extremely knowledgeable about the art, architecture, and historical significance of the places that we visited. We were able to see and enjoy much more than we could have on our own. Sergei was very professional and easy to work with while we were arranging our tour. We would highly recommend Tailored Tours, especially if this is your first visit to St. Petersburg.
