A Recent Review of this tour

Our group of three middle aged had an excellent tour with Dasha. She was a wealth of knowledge, flexible, and gave us a little insight into life in St Petersburg. The transport she arranged worked perfectly. She always managed to dodge the very long ques of the big cruise boat tour groups. We came into St Petersburg on a cruise ship and the customs arrangements were exactly as she described in advance. I recommend Dasha without hesitation.
