A Recent Review of this tour

Ksenia was incredible. She took our group of 10 to all the Don't miss sites in St Petersburg. She kept us on schedule and moving but did not leave any place or detail out. The van and driver provided was safe and clean, practically new. all of our expectations were exceeded by Ksenia and Tours by Locals. We will be using the site in our future travels.
