Our day tour of St. Petersburg with Ekaterina was fantastic. We can't say enough good things about her. She was friendly, enthusiastic, energetic, and extremely knowledgeable. She created a terrific custom itinerary for us, including a fun lunch stop at Teremok, the Russian fast food restaurant (we might have been her first family to request this). She comes with our top recommendation. Thank you, Ekaterina!
