A Recent Review of this tour

Anastasia has been most helpful in looking after transfers from the railway station to our hotel and from our hotel to the airport. Our walking tour with her was amazing, she covered every aspect of St. Petersburg, and went out of her way to ensure we saw the best of the city. Highly recommended. Thank you Anastasia for all you have done.
