A Recent Review of this tour

Alexander is a fabulous guide. His English is perfect, his knowledge of Russian history is VAST. He is seriously punctual, organized and someone you can trust. We were able to leave our belongings in the van while we visited the Palaces and the Hermitage without worry. Alexander bought the best tickets for entrance into every venue. He aims to please. (His wife has a PhD in English). We all (there were 6 of us) highly recommend Alexander S. We saw and did everything we wanted to within the three days.
