A Recent Review of this tour

Alexander was waiting for the 4 of us when we got off the Regal Princess in St. Petersburg. The itinerary we set with him worked out perfectly. He was excited that we chose to see sites that related directly to the Siege of Leningrad, and we began our tour visiting The Freedom Park & The Monument to the Siege. Both sites were moving & inspiring, and we would recommend them to others. Alex was extremely knowledgeable, and his attentiveness to my sister-in-law's need to walk slowly was most helpful.
