There is so much to do in St. Petersburg! Alexandra took us to see the highlights, and made allowances for our specific interests. She communicated has comprehensive knowledge of the city's history extremely well (and she also chose great Russian restaurants for lunches). We would recommend her highly to others heading to St. Petersburg.
