I had a two day tour in Saint Petersburg, Russia. I'd been to other parts of Eastern Europe extensively, yet never to S.P, so I was not going to be a "fish out of water" - hence the personal tour As with my personal tour in Israel 8 years ago, this ranks at or above that experience. The young woman Elina was a charm! Extremely bright, fully immersed in her city and tolerant of two "typical" Americans, she made this experience complete. This company and Elina deserve 5 stars made of Gold.
