A Recent Review of this tour

This was our 2nd trip with Nikolai as our tour guide. He is very knowledgeable about St. Petersburg. This trip there were 5 of us and he arranged for a van to take us to the specific sites we wanted to see and added some an additional side trip. He kept our 10 year and 13 year old grandchildren interested in what we were seeing. Nikolai even made arrangements for ballet tickets for us to see Swan Lake - great seats. His English is very good. I highly recommend Nikolai.
