Highly Recommend
Irene, the guide was wonderful- so knowledgeable and accommodating. We skipped the line on entry and were ahead of large groups so almost had the Palace to ourselves (or so it seemed). Highly recommend Marina Wilson Private Tours - great value and excellent tours (we did 2 in St Petersburg).

Outstanding experience.
We chose to tour the Peterhof Gardens with the help of this tour agency and I must admit it turned out to be one of the best decisions taken by us during the Russia visit. Our English speaking guide was Ms Olga and she was a thorough professional. She was extremely knowledgeable and very understanding. She could communicate and provide the necessary information and pitched the information at right levels. The attraction was superb and worth the visit. I would that like to take this opportunity to thank Marina Wilson Private Tours and Olga for making our visit fruitful and fun. Would definitely like to travel with you guys again. Keep up the good work and Bon voyage.

Hassle free way to see the Hermitage on your own
We had been to the Hermitage before, but since our friends went on a guided tour with the same conpany, we opted for the skip-the-line tickets. And boy, were we happy, seeing the humongous line outside the Winter Palace. We were taken in with the guided tour group and then we continued on our own.
A very knowledgeable guide
Olga was extremely professional and posssesed a wealth of knowledge which she was able to impart with us throughout the tour. I couldn't have done the visit so efficiently if i were alone. Because she knew not only about art and architecture, she was also extremely adept at guiding us in the most efficient way by taking us to less crowded area first and being flexible. There was a family with an infant who showed up late, but she handleded it graciously. The only "problem" was the extra time it took to get inside, as there seemed have confusion as to which group gets to go first. To me it was no such big deal, but some people might have become impatient. Overall, I'm very satisfied. Thank you Olga!
Loved the show
Nice folklore show. Great dancers and singers. The only problem is the hall. You should come early and get the first seats of you want to see it all
