Unforgettable St Petersburg is exactly what Anastasia and our driver delivered. Very easy to find one another after disembarking our cruise ship. Anastasia was ready for all our demands. She is very knowledgeable and took her time to answer all our crazy questions. We highly recommend Anastasia for a tour. She is nothing short of amazing. Every landmark we went to was even more beautiful than we could have imagined. My dream truly came true with Anastasia. Wish we had more time.
