A Recent Review of this tour

Kate is very informative and personable. Not only did we see the main sights of St Petersburg but, at our request, we had a superb afternoon of Soviet history on the Metro and at Finland Station. In addition, Kate found a great selection of local restaurants for lunch each day that really enhanced the experience. Well done Kate.
