Had an absolutely amazing day with Alexandra. Definitely my best day in St. Petersburg and one of my more enjoyable vacation days in my life. Alexandra is an absolutely amazing tour guide and went above and beyond the call of duty to make our day excellent. She is very knowledgeable about all of the sites and as a guide is both professional and personable. I am a frequent traveler and have done countless tours across the world and this one was definitely one of the more memorable ones I've done. We were only in St. Petersburg for 5 days and wanted to merge the Peterhoff tour with the Tsarskoye Selo tour so that we could have an extra day to see other sites in the city. Alexandra was more than happy to do that for us and in addition took us to an absolutely amazing local festival (Maslenitsa) going on that day. In order to do all of this we needed a car, as the two palaces are on opposite sides of the city, so she arranged for us to have a driver, who also provided a wonderful service and for a very fair price (10 euros per hour). For the whole day we each paid about 80 euros for everything (driver, tour, museum tickets, etc.). Her price is more than fair. Before going to St. Petersburg I did a lot of research and interviewed a lot of guides via e-mail. I turned many of them down because they either had exorbitant prices (i.e. 130 euros per person just to see Pushkin) or weren't as flexible as Alexandra in terms of schedule. Also if you're worried about any language barriers, which can sometimes be the case in Russia, there's no need to worry here. Her English is pristine. One more thing, normally this company requires pre-payments for tours however I did not want to do that because I did not want to be charged commission by my bank for foreign currency and was also simply not comfortable doing so. After explaining that to Alexandra she was very understanding and had absolutely no problem with us paying her in person. Anyways book a tour with her I promise you won't regret it. St. Petersburg is an amazing city and with an awesome guide you can learn a lot about the city and truly appreciate the many wonders it has.
