What Our Guests Say About Us

Amazing Russian Experience!

My family and I had an amazing time touring St. Petersburg with Mila. She took us on a private tour to the Hermitage, the Saviour on the Spilled Blood Church, Catherine’s Palace, and the Peterhof Fountain Park and Gardens. Very knowledgeable and professional. Thanks for an amazing tour! TripAdvisor



圣彼得堡是文化之城,MiLa的带领让我们对这个城市的历史、文化和风俗了解更多,她的讲述也让我们注意到了一些可能会被忽略的东西。另外,她推荐的购物点价格的确比外面便宜。总之,你能感受她的专业、真诚和善良。另外,在城市之旅开始之前,民宿卫生间的门锁坏了,我儿子被反锁在里面出不来。我们本来是通知Mila我们可能参加不了体验的,MiLa主动替我们联系房东,联系不上又替我们叫警察帮忙,忙了一个多小时。如果不员Mila,都不知会怎么样! 后来我们又在MiIa这里订了冬宫导游,整整3小时,十分有价值,为圣彼得堡之旅画了一个完美的句号! 推荐! TripAdvisor  


Most memorable summer trip in Russia!

My wife and I were accompanied by our 75yo mother and 6 yo daughter on a scheduled customized 5-day trip stop in St. Petersburg with Mila. Went everywhere supposed to go and much more.

Great customized tour experience!

We had a very wonderful 3 day tour in St. Petersburg with Mila as our tour guide. She’s very knowledgeable, friendly and fluent in English as well as Chinese.

We would have been lost without her

My wife and I spent several days touring St. Petersburg with Mila. We had an excellent experience. I can’t imagine seeing and learning about the city without her! She is a certified and highly-regarded guide and is fluent in English. All official guides are certified – but some are better than others. We thought Mila… Continue Reading “We would have been lost without her”


AMAZING Tour of St. Petersburg with Mila

Experience Russia like Royalty

I thought that I had reviewed this company previously, but as I am researching places to go on vacation, I see I hadn’t posted it so in thinking it is better late than never, here it goes.

City of Magnificent Palaces and Much Much More

I booked a St Petersburg tour … when visiting this city off the cruise ship Regal Princess. It was certainly THE highlight of the 11 night Baltic Sea Cruise, made even more enjoyable by the expert knowledge of our guide for the 2 days, Mila. Her St Petersburg and Russian history knowledge was amazing. She… Continue Reading “City of Magnificent Palaces and Much Much More”


This tour was excellent.

Mila our guide was so enthusiastic and informative. She and the driver worked very well together, we were never waiting around so no time was wasted. Amazing how we avoided all the queues! Thoroughly enjoyed the 2 days. Highly recommended! Source

We Breezed Around the City with Mila

I visited St Petersburg with the family about 2 weeks ago and we breezed around the city with Mila, who knew a huge amount of information and was cheery and helpful all day long. I really recommend that you book a tour with her. She was also very forgiving about my Russian! Continue Reading “We Breezed Around the City with Mila”

I HIGHLY recommend Mila as a tour guide

Four of us toured with Mila last August for two days. She was extremely professional, courteous, knowledgeable and most of all friendly. We were a little worried being in Russia for the first time but Mila was right there waiting for us when we got off the cruise ship and immediately made us feel welcome… Continue Reading “I HIGHLY recommend Mila as a tour guide”

Loved the 4 person private tour

Four of us booked a … Tour during our 3 day St. Petersburg stop on our Silversea cruise. We didn’t like the idea of large group tours and in all our other destinations we planned our own tours using public transportation. We were not disappointed…, it was a wonderful 3 days! Mila, our guide, and… Continue Reading “Loved the 4 person private tour”


The Best Tour Ever!

I wanted to provide feedback on our recent 2 day deluxe tour in St. Petersburg. Mila was our guide and we cannot stress enough what a great job she did. She was extremely informational and was an excellent guide. She marched us to the front of the line at almost every place we stopped. We… Continue Reading “The Best Tour Ever!”


Three days in St. Petersburg

Our guide, Mila, was professional, knowledgeable and a joy to be with. We feel we got to see the very best of the area while avoiding the long lines and crowds because of Mila’s savvy timing. Source

St Petersburg – Best ever tour

What a great experience and well organised tour (2 day deluxe) made special by our tour guide Mila. I can’t praise her enough. She never stopped giving us information ( her English was faultless) and being in a small group of 10 made all the difference. I wish her every success in the future. Thanks… Continue Reading “St Petersburg – Best ever tour”

Great Tour of St. Petersburg

We booked a 2 day tour of St. Petersburg … this summer, and were really happy about everything – the booking, the mini-bus provided and the tour guide. We managed to see quite a lot of the city, including a canal boat ride. The price was much better than the ship, and the group size… Continue Reading “Great Tour of St. Petersburg”
