Nadja was the most knowledgeable tour guide we have ever had. She knew everything about anything we pointed to in the entire Hermitage. Nadja also knew exactly where to go to see the Best the hermitage has to offer. She enhanced the tour by making sure we got around the crowds quickly and efficiently while still seeing everything we wanted to and more! My only regret was not having booked her for more days!!!

Description

Before the tour you’ll meet your guide at the agreed meeting point near the Hermitage. Your guide will be holding a sign with your name on it.

During the tour you’ll see the stately interiors of the Winter Palace – the most glorious imperial residence in Russia, started by Empress Elizabeth I and finished under Catherine the Great's rule.

Explore magnificent art collections amassed by the imperial family, which were saved from destruction by the staff of the museum during World War II.

You’ll see the highlights of the 15th–18th-century European Art collection, including works by Da Vinci, Michelangelo, Raphael, Veronese, Tintoretto, Tiepolo, and other world-famous artists. You’ll also be introduced to the museum's collection of Impressionist and Post-Impressionist paintings.

The tour follows the most comprehensive and interesting route through the Winter Palace, including the Peacock Clock in the Small Hermitage.

Your guide will be happy to answer any questions and, if possible, make detours to accommodate your special requests.

Excellent tour of hermitage
We spent time at The Hermitage with Dasha and she went above and beyond what she needed to, in terms of effort and time. She was punctual, helpful and the whole experience was just incredible
From the very beginning, this tour company were responsive, helpful and communicative and made sure we were looked after.
Our experience with them was excellent and we would not hesitate in recommending them.

Hard to put in words this positive feelings.
From first steps in shop you feel yourself welcome. Painting lesson is must to do. You get a lot information about the art of matryoshka doll.
