A Recent Review of this tour

Alexandra is personable, knowledgeable, professional and engaging. We wanted an in-depth introduction to St Petersburg art history, in a small group, at our own pace. Alexandra respected our needs to view artworks of interest to us, and also expertly guided us to the best of the collections. You might think an all day tour would be exhausting, but her energy, wonderful descriptions and excellent English made it a pleasure. We would definitely recommend her! She is an excellent guide!
