Viator assigned our group of six to Horosho Tours who handled everything expertly from blanket visas to luxury transportation. Most important was our guide Katiana, she was fluent in English and exceedingly knowledgeable regarding her city and all it's attractions. And, she gave us a candid insight into what life in Russia was like over the past 40 years. The Hirosho team deserves all the accolades bestowed on them in reviews of them and the company. I am happy to add my full endorsement to this topshelf company. Viator made an excellent choice when they added Hirosho Tours to the list of tour companies with whom they contract for St. Petersburg tours.
Misha and Arina were wonderful hosts. Everything was great. Fully recommended.
Misha Horosho organized our tour of six on May 31, 2017. He guided us through the processes including a weather update a couple days before the tour so that we could be adequately dressed. The Tour Guide was excellent.
We were able to see and stop for photos at various places. We stopped by sphinxes near the spit of Vasilevsky Island, Fortress of Saints Peter and Paul, The Savior on Spilled Blood, the log cabin of Peter the Great, the cruiser ship Aurora, the Catherine the Great monument, Arts Square, Alexandrinsky Theatre, Ostrovsky Square, the National Library, St Nicholas Cathedral, Kazan Cathedral and the Russian Museum.
We drove along Nevsky prospect, etc., etc.. The Hermitage Museum visit was one of the important highlights of the trip.
The journey to Peterhof was good. We were able to see a bit more of the country other than St. Petersburg. At Peterhof, we spent quite a bit of time walking around, enjoying the gardens, various buildings, the Grottos of Grand Cascade, etc.. That was also one of the most important highlights.
We thank you for this memorable tour. There were only positives, given the weather.
Our hosts Katia and Alexi were very gracious. Despite poor weather and large crowds, we were able to cover a great deal of ground in one day. Katia's English was excellent and she explained many nuances that we would not have known otherwise. Definitely recommend!
