We were directed to Timofey via Rick Steve's website and are super happy that we were able to book a tour with him when we visited St. Petersburg via a Cruise in June of 2016. The overall value of the guided tour was much better than what we saw as excursions via the Cruise company and although we were a... More

Six of us had a two day tour of St. Petersburg with Timofey this past September. We were met each day at our cruise ship by Timofey and a driver. Timofey proved to be extremely knowledgeable and personable guide who custom-tailored a tour for us that miraculously avoided the crowds St. Petersburg is typically known for. His rate was reasonable... More

We visited in July 2016, and booked a 2 day private tour for two couples. We were thrilled with our tour. Nikita is a terrific guide, very personable and knowledgeable. I wish I could remember half of what he told us about culture, art, life in Russia and history. Our driver was also very nice and competent. I do have... More

I found Tailored Tours and Timofey Kruglikov from Rick Steeve's Northern European Cruise Ports book (great book). I was in contact via email and Timofey was quick to respond and provide a custom itinerary for our 2 days in St. Petersburg. We are a family of 4, with teenagers ages 15 and 17. Our guide, Sergei and our driver Yuri,... More

We have wonderful memories of our visit to St. Petersburg. Nicky was a most knowledgeable guide who did all he could to satisfy our sightseeing needs. He was extremely informative - giving us the history of what we were seeing and its relevance to today. Sasha (the driver) was extremely courteous and helpful, coming as close as possible to the...

We found Tailored Tours in Rick Steve's Cruise Ports of Northern Europe travel book, and based upon his strong recommendation decided to use a private guide for two days rather than sign up for four or more excursions to see fewer sights with the cruise line. Some of the wonderful sites we visited were Tsarskoe Selo, Catherine Palace, Peterhof Fountain... More

We had a terrific three day visit to St. Petersburg thanks to Tailored Tours. Timofey was extremely helpful and responsive via email in working out our itinerary. He also arranged for the necessary visas. Kate, our guide, was very knowledgeable. She showed us all the signs we wanted to see and provided insights into life in Russia today. Our only... More

We first learned Tailored Tour from Rick Steve's tour book and Tripadvisor during the process of planning our tours. We started contact Timofey Kruglikov over emails. Timofey had been very quick in responding our questions. We booked a 2-day tour in St. Petersburg arranged by Timofey Kruglikov. Surprisingly, Timofey guided us himself during our visit. He is very polite and... More

Timofey was a wonderful guide for the city of St. Petersburg! This is the first private city tour we have ever booked. I didn't know what we were missing, and the price was a fraction of what the ship was charging and we got to do exactly what WE wanted to see and do and didn't have to wait (like... More

My partner and i had two days recently with Timofey in St Petersburg. His knowledge is extensive and we not only enjoyed ourselves immensely but also came away with understanding so much more of the countries history, which was fascinating. I would thoroughly recommend Tailored Tours to anyone wishing to learn and expand their knowledge of Russia and St Petersburg.
