Irina (guide) and Lyudmila (driver) gave us the grand tour of St. Petersburg and were great. Irina especially was indefatigable, polite and knowledgeable. We thought we could stump her with our questions but she nailed every answer. She also patiently and voluntarily took dozens photos of us during the five days we spent with her, and she went out of her way to wait for the right shot, even when she could have just taken it and moved on. In a city like St. Petersburg, where the vast majority of signs are not in English, it is particularly important to have a tour guide that can make sure you're on the right track, and we were very happy with our experience.

They provided us with a superb tour of St. Petersburg Russia. All our requests were met. The travel guide was the best we've ever had. Knowledgeable, compassionate and looking out for us in every single way. Would strongly recommend them to anyone interested in touring Russia.

Our tour of Russia was wonderful. It was 2 days with the same people. Our guide was very knowledgeable and kept us interested in what we were seeing. Our driver was very nice and was able to handle the crazy traffic. The one thing I would change was the vehicle. It was a van in nice shape but was hard to see out the windows due to my height. I would recommend this group to anyone. They were very accommodating as we change some things on the fly.

Our guide and driver from Esperance- Russia were very helpful. The visa process was very easy. Our guide was an expert in art history and very informative. We really enjoyed our time with him. The only small negatives I would say were that they were late picking us up, so we missed our window to see the jewels at The Hermitage, and the restaurant they dropped us at for lunch was unexceptional. On balance, a great day!

Fabulous!!! Our guide, Marina, was wonderful. She was most knowledgeable, but more importantly, she had a great sense of humor. she was responsive to our interests and went out of her way to add several sites, namely churches, which were not originally scheduled. i would highly recommend Marina, as well as Esperance, to anyone.

Natalia was a wonderful guide in St Petersburg. She accommodated everyone's needs and wants on our two day excursion. They were long days, fully packed, but we saw a lot of St Petersburg. No complaints. Would definitely recommend using Natalia.

Our private guide spoke good English and was a professor so we heard lots of history and Russian information...We felt safe and saw so many wonderful sites/museums - all planned by Tina and the St. Petersburg guide.

Our experience with Esperance was very good in that they provided 2 excellent tour guides: Madlena for St. Petersburg and Iliana for Moscow. Both were extremely knowledgeable.
