We had a wonderful day with Ksenyia at the Peterhof. She is very knowledgeable, having studied Art at the University, and speaks wonderful English. The transportation was very comfortable, and she used a speaker in the van so everyone could hear her. We especially appreciated her thoughtful answers to our many questions about modern Russia, and her willlingness to take us to the Victory Memorial honoring the heroes and victims of the siege of Leningrad. We highly recommend that addition to everyone!
