TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for taking tour with me and for the 5 star rating!

The reason we rated this four stars instead of five had nothing to do with Irina. The traffic in St. Petersburg on that day was horrendous, causing delays in arrival and going from place to place. In fact, Irina was willing to extend the tour to see all of the sights she had planned but we had to be back to our ship for another excursion so we had to cut it short from the offered extended time. Irina is very personable and well-versed about many facets of St. Petersburg.

Irina is extremely intelligent about the history and current affairs of her city. She knows many unique places that aren't on the usual tourist agenda. She is very good at steering the tour and conversation to your interests and you can tell by her explanations, that she is passionate about sharing her knowledge with you. Her English is impeccable and she will even discuss current events. Many Russians avoid talk of such topics with foreigners. Thanks Irina for making my time in Petersburg memorable
