Интересно и познавательно. Благодаря интерактивности впечатления остаются надолго. Наверно потому, что изучаешь город сам, а не кто-то что-то рассказывает.
и ооочень повезло с погодой

Я родилась в Ленинграде, живу в Санкт-Петербурге и очень люблю свой город. В принципе неплохо знаю свой родной город, но побывав на экскурсии "Весенние крыши Санкт-Петербурга", узнала город совсем с другой стороны, а помог мне в этом прекрасный руфер Юрий. Это очень положительный и светлый человек. От общения с ним получаешь удовольствие. С ним чувствуешь себя на крыше в безопасности, он предупредителен и всегда готов помочь. Впечатления от экскурсии превзошли все ожидания. Огромное спасибо за море положительных эмоций! Юрия приглашаю на крыши Английской набережной.


Всем привет!19 апреля 2014 года мы с сестрой-любительницей острых ощущений))) были на экскурсии по крышам Санкт-Петербурга.Всё было супер,впечатлений масса,эмоции через край!!!За что и хотим поблагодарить Юрия-нашего замечательного гида.Прекрасный человек,открытый,общительный,обходительный.
Ещё очень порадовало то что на экскурсию мы попали в день обращения и время нам подобрали удобное именно для нас!За что отдельное спасибо.

The tour was amazing and more adventurous than the basic touristic stuff.
We came as an international group, so it's great that Daniel speaks English.
I can recommend this tour for everybody, who are interested in seeing something different. And the views are so fascinating, cause from the roofs you can see
not only the shiny Nevsky Prospekt, but St.Petersburg behind the curtains.

For me this was a great challenge, cause small part of me is a bit afraid of heights...8D But I never felt unsafe on the roofs, so go for it !
Thanks Daniel! My friends, who came with me, were also very satisfied!

Just had one-day tour with Evgenia and it is wonderful. I made my best decision when booking a tour with her. She is so energetic and knowledgeable about the city. At the same time she is your friend and can suggest the most possible way to fit with your interest no matter whether you are alone or in group. She gave me a lot of good advices and her suggestions are always great. She helped me to arrange an excellent trip in Saint Petersburg, taking care of me from A to Z. Highly recommended for anyone who wants to explore the true Saint Petersburg.
Evgenia, thanks a lot once again and we will definitely meet each other when I have a chance to go back to Saint Petersburg in the future.
