Kathya was great. She really scheduled the places well...Although the first day had a lot of walking and we were exhausted, but happily so :-) We had also asked to try good Russian Food and she delivered well. The places she brought us to were delicious (and not expensive at all). She had great comments for the sites we visited without going into too much details that can get boring! I would highly recommend her for any tour you have! Thank you again!
