A Recent Review of this tour

My family (me, wife, 2 teenagers and 2 grandparents) went on many private tours during our 2 week Baltic cruise and Alexandra's was by far the best - wish she could have been our guide at every port! Alexandra has a doctorate in linguistics and communicates extremely well. She is from St Petersburg and her knowledge of the city history was superb. She was highly efficient and knew how to get us in and out of crowded sites quickly while ensuring we were able to enjoy the absolute best of St Petersburg!
