A Recent Review of this tour

My husband and I did a 12 day Baltic cruise and our time in St. Petersburg with Dasha was by far the highlight of our trip! Dasha went above and beyond to provide the best tours and we covered so much in two days! We enjoyed our time with her so very much that we are hoping she will come and visit us in the US. She made our trip so special and most of all she was an amazing ambassador for Russia. We learned so much and left with a much different idea about Russia than we cane with. We hope to return!
