A Recent Review of this tour

Irina's walking tour was absolutely fantastic. You really got a feel for St Petersburg and Irina's love for her city. Her knowledge was amazing. She could even answer the off the wall questions my 13 year old son could think of. We visited so many places, the Hermitage, The church of the spilled blood, Alexander's column, the winter palace, St Isaacs Cathedral, just to name a few and so many interesting pieces of information about each place and our memories of St Petersburg are wonderful
