Trip Report Good guide for St. Petersburg

Jump to last reply

We just returned from three days in St. Petersburg on the St. Peterline's visa free ferry. In order to maximize our time, we hired a private guide, Olga Miheyeva. She was recommended by djkbooks who posts here (and I enjoy his/her posts). Olga teaches English during the school year and is a certified, licensed guide during the summers and other off times.

We booked her for one day (8 hrs) with a driver/car and then the next for half a day, walking. Her rates were comparable to the big tour companies but it was just my friend and I on the tour. We corresponded by email, we told her the main things we wanted to see, and she did the rest.

She was good to stop at any sight we saw and were interested in, she knew all the history, she took us around and showed us many more interesting things than we could ever have done on our own.

If you need her email, here it is . . . olguide@gmail.com. We really enjoyed our time with her and really appreciate djkbooks' recommendation. FYI, I cross posted this on TripAdvisor.
