A Recent Review of this tour

Our 3-day tour with Anna was wonderful: Very comprehensive, engaging, and perfectly paced! Our interests are wide, but Anna very thoughtfully put together a personalized itinerary for us, and even then she was willing (& able!) to improvise on the spot when we wanted to add a visit to the Tikhvin Cemetery and Nevsky Monastery! Anna's English is flawless and precise, and she is a very personable and warm person who shares with us her knowledge of her magnificent city like a friend. Thank you, Anna!
