A Recent Review of this tour

Elena and her driver, Yuri, were amazing! She shared her knowledge of St. Petersburg and surrounding areas with us and really made the tour enjoyable. We especially appreciated the extra effort she took to help out my sister who broke her leg the day before we arrived in St. Petersburg and was on crutches along with a walking cast. The arrangements she made for us to attend the opera were also very much appreciated. We would highly recommend her tours of St. Petersburg. Such luck to have her!
