A wonderful day in St. Petersburg with Elena and her beautiful daughter Anastasia. Elena met us on time in her very nice SUV. We saw Catherine's Palace in rooms accessible to us only through Elena's contact. Of course including the unbelievable Amber Room. Elena is patriotic, knows her history and is eager to share it with her clients. Perfect guide, perfect tour.
