A Recent Review of this tour

We had Nikolai as a guide last year and, returning this year with a friend, engaged him again, this time for a tour to Russia's WW1 museum (which is terrific, but requires the help of someone fluent in both Russian and English) and the Catherine Palace. Not only is Nikolai extraordinarily knowledgeable, he is also incredibly flexible and responsive to his guests' needs; he adjusted the timing and order of his standard tour to our preferences, and made sure we caught the train at the end of the tour.
