Alexandra is a wealth of knowledge, you can throw any question at her and she will be able to answer. My friends and I booked very last minute and she did so well in getting us access into the Hermitage early so we had most part of our tour with very few people. Lunch was at a typical Russian home style restaurant. She really knew her history and we were so impressed! Highly reccomend choosing Alexandra as your guide!
Alexandra is absolutely top class. We had a very intensive tour as we were only in St Petersburg one day. If you could fit anything more in I would be amazed. The Hermitage is huge and needs several days but we got an amazing overview seeing the highlights. We will return. Alex Is knowledgeable charming and efficient. If you only have a short time say on a cruise I would really recomend Alexandra I believe she can do visa free tours for those only in Russia a short time.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Terence! It was my pleasure!
