Anna was the best tour guide we've ever had. She uses a driver so she can focus on her presentation. The van she used was very comfortable and easy to see out of. Anna's English was excellent. Her knowledge of the history of St. Petersburg and every important site there were very impressive. She answered every question we had with facts and humor. We loved that she arranged the perfect 2-day tour for us yet was very flexible to change plans to suit our interests. I'd highly recommend her. The best!
