Elina was a fantastic tour guide and very knowledgeable about the city. Despite the fact that we booked quite close to the date of the tour, she was still able to provide a high quality tour which hit all of the highlights we wanted to see. She was able to answer all of our questions quite thoroughly. She was also able to give us recommendations about some great local bars, restaurants, and activities which helped make the rest of our time in St. Petersburg memorable. I would recommend Elina to anyone.
