    We had a wonderful tour of the Hermitage with our very informative tour guide Lydia. I had just booked the trip the previous day before leaving home. The confirmation e-mail tells you to phone the company to confirm your location. This is important and would advise you to do so.

    We enjoyed a very interesting tour with a sympathetic German-speaking tour guide. Very competent in history of hermitage and in the exhibition. We enjoyed preferential treatment at checkout and in the queues. Highly recommended. The three hours passed very fast.
