A Recent Review of this tour

Our tour with Vadim is MORE THAN EXCELLENT! Our 2-day tour at St Petersburg is the highlight of our vacation. Vadim was very knowledgeable with the Russian history and provided us with very detailed information about the attractions we went to like Catherine Palace, Peterof Palace, Hermitage Museum, Church of Spilled Blood and St Isaac's Cathedral, and even subway station. Very friendly and very fluent in English language, also made it much easier for my mom who is in a wheelchair to get around. SPASIBO!!
