Dasha was great and very knowledgeable. There were some large tour groups at the palace and she was really good about maneuvering us through them so we could see things and get through in a reasonable amount of time. She was also very accommodating and helped us find a watch factory we were interested in visiting then she translated all the information for us during the tour. I would highly recommend her!

Dasha was absolutely wonderful. She did everything we requested and much more. She was our private guide for 8 hours which cost less than half of one tour for 2 on the cruise ship. We put 3 shore excursions together and had plenty of time for shopping and lunch. Her knowledge and personality showed us St Petersburg the way it should be seen. We highly recommend her to all.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Oh, how nice it is to hear !!! :) Thanks, come with friends

Our group of three middle aged had an excellent tour with Dasha. She was a wealth of knowledge, flexible, and gave us a little insight into life in St Petersburg. The transport she arranged worked perfectly. She always managed to dodge the very long ques of the big cruise boat tour groups. We came into St Petersburg on a cruise ship and the customs arrangements were exactly as she described in advance. I recommend Dasha without hesitation.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Randall! It is very important to me to show you wonderful sights of the city from its best side. I also enjoyed our trip and hope to see you again! Take care, Dasha.

Dasha was young, knowledgeable and enthusiastic about her city. We loved the lunches at local restaurants and the visit to the subway. Overall the logistics went smoothly. The advantage of being a small group is that while the large groups met at 8am, we met at 9am and there were no lines at Visa control. Also we were able to move the museums, etc. more efficiently.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I really appreciate your feedback; My reputation is growing stronger more and more

Hiring Dasha as a guide was the best investment of our vacation! Dasha did not simply tell us a bunch of facts; she used those facts to give us context to understand the past and present significance of what we were seeing. She was a zealous advocate for us (once literally running to save us a good place in line) at sites and restaurants alike. She handled details in advance and communicated thoroughly so I felt informed and confident, and she candidly answered my curious questions about social issues. A+

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Angela! It was an authentic pleasure guiding your wonderful family around our city. We shared many good moments and I really appreciated our cordial and entertaining conversations. Hope to see you again!

We took a private day tour with Dasha. This is by far the best way to tour St Petersburg. Our guide Dasha spoke very good English and knew detailed information and history about the city and the country. I went on a group tour the next day to the Hermitage and didn't enjoy it or learn nearly as much as our day with Dasha. We were able to ask questions as they came up and Dasha knew all of the answers. I would recommend this tour over any others.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: unfortunately, in Petersburg at this time of year there are traffic jams , but I'm glad you have good memories about me and about our walk .Thank you for the wonderful review.

Dasha made a great experience an unforgettable one for my family. We had a 9 year old boy with us and she took great care to make sure there was a balance of things to see and do. Dasha was very attentive, on time, professional, well versed but most of all had a great personality that makes me proud to now call her a friend.
