A Recent Review of this tour

Wish there were six stars. Elena is a charming, attentive and very knowledgeable guide. She went above and beyond to tailor our itinerary, and made sure our days were well-balanced, with some rest points. (SPB can be exhausting!) Our 2-person bucket list was more than fulfilled during our 3-day visit. Her driver also inspired confidence. Over lunch each day Elena shared her family's experiences of living through some key events in modern Russian history. Thanks for a superb tour, Elena!
