What you'll do
The Hermitage is a really great place for evryone interested in history, the Russian Royal family and/or art. But it is an enormously huge museum, they say there are about one thousand rooms and several hundred thousand items on display! To get more from a visit to the museum and to fully enjoy it, it's better to have a local professional guide (one of us! :). We'll navigate you through this maze of hundreds rooms and myriads of art works giving explanations on the most important of them in a friendly light-hearted way.
We are a couple of friends, colleagues and professional guides - Alla and Pavel. We are graduates of art schools and had a training at The Hermitage museum. Our interest in art and history had eventually brought us into guiding. The Hermitage museum is our favourite in the city. Its mysteries fascinate us, its treasures are an endless source of inspiration Having worked for several tourist companies we decided to do this tour on our own to be able to have more intimate interaction with our guests. We always try to create an easy and engaging atmosphere on our tours with personal attention to everyone. Don't hesitate to contact us or book our tour :)
