Alexandra is a wealth of knowledge, you can throw any question at her and she will be able to answer. My friends and I booked very last minute and she did so well in getting us access into the Hermitage early so we had most part of our tour with very few people. Lunch was at a typical Russian home style restaurant. She really knew her history and we were so impressed! Highly reccomend choosing Alexandra as your guide!
