Jane BurkaUnited States
Irena was an excellent guide, very much attuned to our interests. She not only took us through the Catherine Palace as arranged, but as she learned more about us, she also offered to stop at two other places that were significant for us...Dostoevsky's apartment in the neighborhood of the streets in Crime and Punishment, and the rebuilt synagogue. She was knowledgeable, professional, accommodating, personable, and very easy to spend time with. Her driver also added his knowledge and helpfulness to our tour.
