    What to Expect
    Our guide - an art and history expert will pick you up in the lobby of your hotel at 10.30 AM and take you on a comfortable transport (type of it depends on quantity of persons in your group) to the Hermitage Museum and from the moment you're taken- your four-hour tour of the history of art will start! About 11.00 AM or 11.30 AM you'll see the beautiful Winter palace (one of the buildings of the museum now) and you'll get inside without queues for the tickets and the guide will lead you through the beautiful world of European art and Russian history.

    You will learn why the Hermitage is one of the most important museums in the world; you will enjoy the works of great artists such as Leonardo da Vinci, Rembrandt, Raphael, Rubens, Titian. You can feel like a foreign ambassador in tsarist Russia, climbing the luxurious Jordanian staircase. You will see the magnificent ceremonial halls of the Winter Palace, which were used for the ceremonial exits of the imperial family, balls and dinners. You will be surprised to see legendary peacock clock in the Pavilion Hall, a gift to Catherine II. It still works!

    Why do you need us to be your guide in the Hermitage?

    The museum has more than 3 million works of art and occupies four buildings! That's why you may need some help not to get tired and not to get lost there. We will show the most interesting, our individual excursion for you, your family and friends, and for sure we may talk about that kind of art that is interesting for you.

    Do not forget to take a camera with you, you can take photos in the museum!

    When your excursion will come to the end  you can independently walk the museum or simply visit a cafe or souvenir shop.

    Be kind, do not forget to leave your phone number with the reservation for communication with you and correctly write the name of your hotel!
