Overall Experience
Jj K.
Maria was incredible. She was not only a guide for the day but a friend for life. The opportunity to spend a day with her learning about Russian history, culture, politics and life in that great country was amazing. The caviar and champagne at the Ritz Carlton for lunch overlooking Red Square and St. Basil's will be a life time memory. Guide Guru coordinated our trip from St. Petersburg to Moscow via Sapstan. If you are arriving in St. Petersburg on a cruise ship, go with Guide Guru. You will have a far better tour at 60% of the cruise ship price and be sure to ask for Maria as your guide. Having traveled to over 46 countries and taken many tours, Maria was the best tour guide we have ever had the privilege of spending a day with!
My wife and I did a Private tour using Guide Guru in both Moscow (from St.Petersburg) and a tour in St.Petersburg. I would have to say that we were very impressed, Natalia put our tours together using our preferences and both Guides and Drivers were excellent. We saw everything that we had on our list. Both guides kept us informed with as much information as we were able to take in as we did our tours. Thank you Natalia I give you 6 stars out of 5. We wish we had organised more tours at other destinations with you as we saw your "Guide Guru" banner held up at other destinations.
