Our tour guide Dasha arrived at the boat in a luxury car with a driver to escort us to Peterhof Palace and gardens. We entered the magnificent palace with very few other tourists and stayed for the Samson fountain being turned on to music. Following a delicious lunch in town, we visited Catherine's Palace and bypassed all the crowds for our tour. It was a fabulous day!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, we were glad to make you a company)
Awesome excursion to summer palace with Dasha. She arranged everything so that we don't have to wait in line for hours. She's very nice and such a good guide :-) It was a very hot day, but we did have a great time :-)
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, it was great to meet you. today it was raining and finally it became easier

Dasha Demidova has a big heart, and a big soul. She is also a very good guide. After our tour of the palaces, she recognized how uncertain, and intimidated, my grandson and I were about getting to the St. Petersburg stadium to watch a World Cup match. Vehicular access to the stadium was sharply restricted, and Dasha walked us nearly to our gate, and then she had to walk almost two miles to catch the Metro to her home. She is outstanding.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Steve, It was not a big pleasure it was a big luck to guide you! I trully enjoyed our time and hope you too. This year World Cup brought many tourists here and rush atmosphere and I am glad you came too. I am in passion with what is going on here, so my pleasure to help you to bring your dream to the reality! Best wishes and take care, kind regards, Dasha.
Dasha is very enthusiastic about St. Petersburg's history and achievements making the visits very fun and interesting. The sites where amazing to see. She helped alot in avoiding long waits at all sites giving more time to visit. Was able to see alot in the one day. I really enjoyed my tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you,your words inspired me greatly

Hiring Dasha as a guide was the best investment of our vacation! Dasha did not simply tell us a bunch of facts; she used those facts to give us context to understand the past and present significance of what we were seeing. She was a zealous advocate for us (once literally running to save us a good place in line) at sites and restaurants alike. She handled details in advance and communicated thoroughly so I felt informed and confident, and she candidly answered my curious questions about social issues. A+
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Angela! It was an authentic pleasure guiding your wonderful family around our city. We shared many good moments and I really appreciated our cordial and entertaining conversations. Hope to see you again!
