Over the years we have taken numerous private tours. Our tour of St. Petersburg was without a doubt the best tour we have ever experienced. Tatiana and her driver Nickolai were fantastic!! Having previously worked at the Hermitage, Tatiana has an immense knowledge of the history, art, and culture in Russia and St. Petersburg. Thank you Tatiana for providing us with two days of wonderful memories we will always treasure!! Marty Stitt Houston, Texas
