Anastasia parle le français couramment. Elle maitrise parfaitement son sujet et a une véritable expertise du musée de l’Ermitage et de la Russie en général. Un véritable plaisir que l’on vous recommande vivement.

La visite de l'Ermitage s'est très bien passée avec une personne très compétente mais ce n'était pas Irina. Il semble que cette prestation a été sous traitée à un organisme. Nous aurions bien aimé être prévenus en amont car en attendant Irina nous étions inquiets...C'est nous qui sommes allés vers une guide qui parlait français et qui a réussi à dénouer la situation. Un peu léger pour Airbnb qui propose ce service

Gia' da subito si intuisce che Natalia e' una guida scrupolosa, rirtovo esattamente all'ora e ne luogo convenuti. Li ha iniziato a raccontarci della storia della piazza in cui eravamo, dopodiche' siamo entrati nel museo dove ha iniziato a spiegarci con passione le stanze e le opere d'arte piu' importanti che incontravamo, tanto che ad un certo punto avrei voluto dirle di prendere una pausa per respirare un po', ma probabilmente sono le donne russe ad esere cosi', cercano di dare il meglio in ogni situazione. Noi (io e la mia ragazza) l'abbiamo seguita ascoltando le cose interessanti che ci raccontava senza disdegnare a volte di farle le domande che ci venivano in mente, domande alle quali ha risposto senza battere ciglio. Ad un certo punto non sapevamo piu' in quale parte del museo fossimo, sia per le sue dimensioni sia perche' Natalia era un fiume in piena che ci travolgeva con le sue parole. Una cosa che ci e' molto piaciuta di lei e' che a volte nel raccontare la storia di alcuni oggetti si lasciava trascinare dall'amore verslo la sua patria. Per concludere non posso fare altro che consigliarla se volete un bel tour e un'ondata di passione che vi travolge durante il suo svolgimento. PS: non so se perche' eravamo solo in due o perche' le siamo stati simpatici o per qualche altro motivo, ma la visita avrebbe dovuto durare 3 ore, Natalia ci ha accompagnato a scoprire il museo per ben 4 regalandocene una, se non e' queta passione per il proprio lavoro, ditemi voi

Excellente visite guidée en français de l’Hermitage : notre guide a pu nous montrer l’essentiel en trois heures et nous donner les clés de compréhension de ce musée immense. Nous n’avons pas fait la partie impressionnistes mais en trois heures on ne peut pas tout faire. Des anecdotes amusantes sur les tableaux présentés mais aussi souci de montrer l’importance du décor et l’histoire du lieu. C’est très professionnel et efficace.

She was very knowledgeable, answered all our questions, and allowed us to really appreciate the huge Hermitage complex. Her recount of the Siege of St. Petersburg was very moving, it brought me to tears. I learned so much more about Catherine the Great, Potemkin, Russian culture and history thanks to her! Спасибо!!!

Vi havde en fantastisk rundvisning med Lida, som både havde et dybt kendskab til Erimitagen og til historien bag Vinterslottet og de senere tilbygninger til det. Det var Lida (Lidia) der var vores guide i stedet for - som annonceret - Irina, og vi var meget glade for hendes fortællinger om museet og den russiske historie i det hele taget.
