This company and Tatiana were referred to us by friends for a 2 day tour of St. Petersburg. It could not have been better. There were only 6 of us, so we "whizzed" through long lines of hundreds of people waiting to get into the venues. Her staff and driver were fantastic and knowledgeable tour guides. We had 1 lunch in the country in a log cabin-like restaurant and 1 in the city which seemed like the business side of St. Petersburg. They were prompt and made us feel safe and secure at all times. "Always go with a smaller group if you want your money's worth" is our motto from now on!!!!

Three full days of touring with Tatiana's Fourth Century Guide in St. Petersburg was without a doubt one of the best travel experiences encountered on a "private" guided tour. Tatiana (who at the moment is about to deliver her first child) met us with her designated guide at our ship. She had planned three wonderful days for us and she, herself, met us twice for lunch and a private Canal Boat Tour --- the guide she gave to us - Eugene - was so knowledgeable - well spoken and interesting in his own right that we saw not only what our itinerary included - but several other things of interest that the normal "tourist" might not encounter. Eugene's vast knowledge of art - architecture - paintings and history - and his professional, gentle, and gracious manner added unexpected dimensions to our already well executed itinerary. Tatiana was the planner - and would have been our guide as well had she not been about to deliver her baby. We felt so fortunate to have had her plan our tours - and put us in the capable and knowledgeable hands of Eugene. I would suggest her fourth Century Company to anyone traveling to Beautiful St. Petersburg.

This past summer my husband, me and to of our friends took a cruise to St. Petersburg. On the advise of a friend we booked two full days of touring with Fourth Century, and Tatiana. This decision increased our enjoyment of St. Petersburg ten fold. Tatiana is impeccable as a tour guide. While others on the cruise filed onto buses we were greeted by Tatiana and her driver, and driven around in a very comfortable Mercedes van. Our tour was custom made for us and our desires. Because we were a small group we were able skirt around the huge groups from all the ships in port. Tatiana will take care of your attraction tickets and sight seeing needs. I will be recommending her to friends and family, and I highly recommend her to anyone in need of an outstanding tour guide in St. Petersburg.

Our travel agent suggested Tatiana and her company, 4th Century, and we could not have been more pleased. Tatiana (Tanya) was professional, friendly and very knowledgeable. We began communicating with her via e-mail 9 months or so before our trip. There is quite a time difference between where we live, in Virginia, and St. Petersburg, Russia, however, she always replied to my e-mails in a very timely manner. My husband and I asked her for a very customized itinerary - three full days of seeing as much as we could - and what we saw exceeded our expectations. She and her driver were always waiting for us (with their very comfortable Mercedes Sedan) at our agreed upon time. She arranged for early entrance to the Hermitage and individual docent led tours for us. Her knowledge of St. Petersburg and its environ's history is impeccable. When returning to our cruise ship each evening, we were exhausted but also exhilarated with the excitement from seeing all of the marvelous sites we were shown that day. Also, overhearing other passengers talk about their disappointment with the large group tours they had booked, my husband and I just looked at each other and smiled, knowing that we had absolutely made the right choice in hiring Tatiana and 4th Century. We can hardly wait to return and see Tatiana and her beautiful city of St. Petersburg again!

Tatiana did an excellent organizational plan for us and it was amazing that although we were only in St Petersburg for 2 days she fit the priorities perfectly with the time element. She speaks perfect english, is very professional and since she grew up in St Petersburg she has lived the recent history as well as educated herself to the past and takes ongoing classes there during the winter. She was recommended to us by three other couples who had used her tour service separately and we were very comfortable working with her. We are pleased to continue that trust and recommend her to all….honestly you can't find a better tour guide and her driver was polite, drove well and safely and kept us in comfort in his air-conditioned Mercedes.
