Alisa was an excellent guide whose knowledge and skills in organising a 2 day tour with not much notice was very much appreciated. Alisa guided us through all the principal highlights of Saint Petersburg in the short space of time that we had there and I would highly recommend her to anyone travelling to Saint Petersburg.
