Kate was a wonderful tour guide. She was very knowledgeable about Russian history and the specific history of each cathedral, palace and museum on the tour. Kate was very punctual and a safe and reasonable driver. Her english was easily understood. She took an interest in us and in making our time in St. Petersburg enjoyable. She also had excellent suggestions for lunch and dinner meals.
