A Recent Review of this tour

We couldn't recommend Kate more highly. She's a lovely, well spoken woman who knows endless amounts about the history, architecture and art in St. Petersburg and is delightful to be with. I had contacted many guides and organizations before going to S.P. requesting to see the Treasury at the Hermitage. Everyone responded that it would not be possible but Kate was savvy enough to know how to get us in. In fact, she quietly got us through every line and into everywhere we wished to go. Money well spent!
