A Recent Review of this tour

Elina was very flexible and able to accommodate last minute changes in the schedule. A very good & enjoyable tour. Elina showed her extensive knowledge of Art and the Hermitage. The French Impressionist works ebnable us to better interpret the genre and come away with a better knowledge of Russian artists.
