Polina was a superb guide. I spent a prior day with her visiting Peterhof and Pushkin. She brought in a local Novgorod guide, Natalia, expert in Novgorod history. Despite being about 3.5 hours by car from St. Petersburg it was time well spent and it gave me a new perspective on medieval Russian history. Polina is fluent in English and our conversation during the long drive provided considerable insight into current Russian social life. My visit to Russia gained considerable depth from this trip!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you William!
