A Recent Review of this tour

Nikolai was waiting for our family group of four when we disembarked the Regal Princess in St. Petersburg. He was extremely knowledgeable about the history of this remarkable former capital of Russia. He kept us informed concerning all that we passed along the way to Peterhof, and was an excellent guide there and at The Hermitage later in the afternoon. He was particularly attentive to my sister-in-law's needs to walk slowly and to sit when there was availability. An overall fabulous tour experience.
