What an amazing day! My family, including kids aged 12 - 22 had the opportunity to see so much in such a short time! Elena and her driver did a great job navigating us through crowds and gave us the chance to see some of the most amazing sites in St. Petersburg. Elena was in control at all times, which is exactly what you want with your guide. She knew the sites, anticipated our needs and kept us moving so we could take advantage of the time we had. She was funny, sweet and genuine!

Elena set my wife, daughter and I up with the with opportunity to attend the local ballet. She had a driver take us to a great dinner, followed by dropping us off at the front step of the ballet where she had great seats reserved for us. The ballet was fantastic. Younger performers (I'm sure the pros were on holiday) but they did an amazing job. The performance was one of the best I've seen. Our driver picked us up afterwards and gave us a brief tour of St. Petersburg at night. The icing on the cake!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mike, Thank you so much for the comment! All my drivers, agent, and tickets suppliers, and I do our best to make your ballet night excellent! Next time you are here, we can organize a street-bars-music walkout for all your family! Hope to see you again in Saint-Petersburg, Elena

Elena was a terrific guide. She was personable, knowledgeable, enthusiastic - everything a guide should be. She had planned everything we wanted to do and see with some additional sights. She had advance tickets and we never had to wait for anything. The car and driver were always there to meet us. We had a fun lunch at a very traditional sandwich restaurant that was really good. She made us move so we could cover so much territory. She was absolutely right about the boat ride on the river. Perfect

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Carol, Thank you for such warm feedback, for your choice, and your trust! You entrusted me with the most valuable in traveling with family: the first impression of the city which you wanted to show to your children, emotions, and good memories. It was very nice to accompany you these days. Thank you for suggesting a great itinerary and for knowing what you want to visit. It was very comfortable and delightful to work with you! Hope to see you all back one day! Sincerely yours, Elena

I chose to do the evening program with Elena on my final night in Saint Petersburg after spending a good amount of my 10 days with her. Elena, as was the status quo, exceeded all expectations with a true local experience. The establishments we visited gave me a true Russian authentic experience and every unique place was warm and welcoming. Her personality and charisma is infectious and it seemed everywhere we went we were meeting new people. As with everything else, I highly recommend Elena for anything.

Elena is the epitome amazing. She is not only brilliant, articulate and informative when it comes to her tours and subject matter, but her brilliance extends to any subject matter regarding Russia and beyond. Her personality is simply infectious and she has a passion when it comes to showing you just how amazing Saint Petersburg is. I am fortunate enough to have a few more tours with her but I can tell you now my second trip to Saint Petersburg will be just amazing as the first and I owe that to Elena.

Elena is a terrific guide and wonderful person that we highly recommend! The tour was customized for our interests but Elena made sure we saw the most important places. Elena took care of every detail for us. We spent two full days with Elena and a third day on our own with a driver that she arranged. We learned so much about St. Petersburg history as well as Soviet era and modern Russia.
