The company and in particular Maxim our guide were excellent. Maxim was on time and exceedingly knowledgeable of the Kremlin. He efficiently got us through the system and the crowds. Providing a good commentary along the way. Highly helpful introduction to the complex.

Description

The Kremlin is the heart of Moscow and has always been associated with the Russian Government.

Get to know the history of the Kremlin grounds and visit three of its cathedrals on a fascinating 2-hour tour.

First, we will head to the 16th-century Cathedral of the Archangel. See how it unites traditional Russian architecture with elements characteristic of the Italian Renaissance, and visit burial places of Moscow’s tsars and princes throughout the centuries.

Next, we will move on to the 15th-century Cathedral of the Annunciation, once a place of worship for tsars and the royal family, and a venue for wedding ceremonies and christenings. Admire the many works of art it houses, including frescoes that date back to 1508.

We will then visit the Uspensky Cathedral, also known as the Assumption Cathedral. Built in 1551, it’s a masterpiece by the Italian architect Aristotele Fioravanti.

Finally, we will admire the exterior of the Patriarch’s Palace, now a museum dedicated to the art and lifestyle of 17th-century Russia.

Professional guide, Katharina was very informative and knew the whole history and answered all our questions about places we visited.
Itinerary was the same with most of tours outhere.
Transportation was clean, comfortable, and fancy
Driver was cautious and safe.
Lunch was fast with simple menu yet delicious. Price is literally a half from what our cruise company had offered
Outstanding Experience by Marina Wilson Tours
We were a bit hesitant to book a tour of St. Petersburg not through our cruise ship but the positive reviews of Marina Wilson Small Group Tours persuaded us. So glad we did! Booked the two day tour and found only one other couple going with us. Perfect. No problems at all with visas and entrance tickets. Akatrina, our guide, was very professional. She continually told us all about what we were seeing and guided us smoothly around long lines to get the best experience. She obviously knew what we needed and was so pleasant even after long hours with us. We highly recommend taking this small group tour. Marina also made arrangements for us to attend an evening small concert tour at Vladimir Palace that was wonderful. Pickup at pier and after the concert were right on time. These were some of the best tours we have had especially being in a restricted country.

Awesome St Petersburg 1-Day Visa-Free Shore Excursion
I can't recommend this company and especially our guide, Tatia, enough. Both were outstanding. If you get the chance to visit St Petersburg, please reach out to the company and request Tatia. She is absolutely the most informative and knowledgeable guide in the area. Absolutely the best!!!!

Best 'Crash Course' on Russian history and culture
The highlight of our early May Baltic Cruise was this whirlwind tour of St Petersburg. The small group tour offered by Marina Wilson was far superior to the experience shared with us by other travellers on our Royal Caribbean Baltic cruise.

Our guide, Irina, was a model of knowledge, tutoring and efficiency. During the tour she crammed in sights and stories that what would normally take several days longer.
She brought to life for us the history of St. Petersburg from its foundation through to the post war restoration. We left with a far better understanding of the royal family, the aristocracy and the common man during the tumultuous 300 years of Russian history. Irina navigated us around crowds and lineups to see and experience the highlights of the rich trove of art and treasure in the palaces and churches in the greater St Petersburg area. Her obvious love for her country and its rich historical past left us with many happy memories, and yet a desire to read and explore further.

Thank You for a very memorable tour!

Well worth it
Marina Wilson's Private Tours was recommended by friends who had a fabulous experience with this company a few years ago. I can only echo that review. Our driver and tour guide were excellent. I felt that we got more than our money's worth over the one-day tour. We saw all that I had hoped to see, bypassed lines at the Hermitage, had parts of Catherine Palace almost to ourselves (good timing) and had a fantastic lunch as well. Valeria was an informative and interesting tour guide. My absolute favorite part of the tour was the Peterhof Gardens. Spectacular! I highly recommend this experience.
