Irina was a star. There were 6 of us and all different. In planning our day in St. Petersburg she was patient with all of us and worked hard to put together a near perfect day. Her English was perfect and her knowledge of the city was vast. I have used private tour guides in the past and she ranks up there as on of the best.
