Skip in the line ticket for Hermitage museum

It was very good to skip the line to get in. The guide was very diligent to explain and tried to show as much as she could. While the guide was very patient when other group people showed up 20min late, we were a little annoyed because we were not informed how long she would wait for them. I hope the regulation would be written clearly.

Top guide and experiences

We were lucky on two counts ... first petite but very knowledgeable guide Maria and secondly we were a group of just four people so had lots of personal attention ... Maria skillfully maneuvered us through the crowds and position us in the best possible vantage point to view what she was describing. I know the groups will be bigger in future but fully recommend the Adventure Travel Russia firm for this Hermitage experience

An excellent tour of the highlights of the Hermitage.

We had a little group that effectivily passed through the Hermitages highlights. Getting information and seeing things that I could have missed if I went on my own. It was an intensive 3 hours that passed very quickly. And after the tour we could then wonder through the other rooms seeing the objects that interested me.
