We can't say enough positive things about Vladimir. He met us on time, and took us to the sights that we had arranged on our customized itinerary. Vladimir is very knowledgeable and friendly, flexible, fluent in English, and allowed us to cover many sights, without the day seeming rushed. Thoroughly enjoyed our tour, and wouldn't hesitate to book with Vladimir again.
