Kseniya is the best guide ever! It would be difficult to say how there might be a better guide. She is personable, extraordinarily knowledgeable about Russian history and contemporary Russia, fluent in English, and simply delightful to travel around St. Petersburg with. No guide I have used at Tours by Locals or from other providers has been as excellent as Kseniya. Having her as a guide is much like touring with a long-time, close and very bright friend. Highest possible recommendation.
