Kate spent a wonderfull day with me and my girlfriend inside the Hermitage.
She has a very great knowledge about the exhibit shown there and could
explain us a lot. It was absolutles great day, also we spent some hours
waiting in the queue for some time, being with such a good guide evey
minute we waited was enjoyable too. Btw. her English is better as she
believes herself :) Hope next time when I am in St. P we can catch up
again, cause last time did not work out.

Kate gave me such an unforgettable private guided tour in the Hermitage!
She is very passionate about the museum collection and the eventful history
of St-Petersburg, knows a lot about it and can tell countless interesting
stories and anecdotes. Thank you so much Kate, for inviting me, for your
charming company and for a most memorable museum visit!



We were met by the lovely tour guide Ekatarina at the cruise terminal
and were then taken to meet our driver and his car. There was only my
wife and me in our group so we effectively had a private tour.
tour started on time and we headed into the marvellous St Petersburg.
Ekatarina was a mine of information and gave a good presentation on the
history of St Petersburg since it was established in 1703. We made
several stops so that we could take some photos and stretch our legs.
The driver ensured that we got safely on and off the people carrier and
was always courteous.
Our favourite sights were St Isaac's Cathedral;
St Peter and St Paul Cathedral and fortress and the The Church of the
Saviour on Spilled blood.
We would highly recommend this tour for anyone who just wants to catch a feeling for St Petersburg and its major sights..
