A Recent Review of this tour

Elina was an excellent guide to show us a combination of historic and contemporary St. Petersburg. She listened to what we wanted to do, see and experience. And then planned a great day that was tailored to us. She is smart and engaging, easy-going and knowledgeable. Elina was a wonderful combination of tour guide and new found friend. We can not recommend Elina highly enough!
