Yulia was an excellent guide. She managed to gage the crowds perfectly we went into the Catherine Palace without having to stand in line, because when we came out the lines were horrendous. She listened carefully to what we wanted to see the most, and acted accordingly, and of course showed us places that she thought we would enjoy, like Mon Plaisir which we liked very much. I had had a recent accident with my ankle which limited my walking, and she was very considerate about that.
