My wife and I wanted to visit a lot of sites in St Petersburg which are not on the normal tourist trail. Elena worked extremely hard in discovering information and making arrangements. Thanks to her, our visit was a huge success and most enjoyable. We hope to return next year and our first priority will be to contact Elena.
