A Recent Review of this tour

Irina was absolutely amazing. Her English is excellent and, in two days at a very comfortable pace, showed me all the major sights in and around St. Petersburg. Irina has a thorough understanding of Russian history and culture that made the tours interesting and exciting. She is warm and friendly and answered all my questions without hesitation. The transportation was comfortable. Irina helped me get a ballet ticket. I strongly recommend her for any group of any size. Thank you for two days of fun.
