Kristina provided us with a fantastic day out - she is so lovely and interesting to talk to and is a complete goldmine of knowledge. She was bang on time in picking us up, did a great bit of driving in pretty challenging conditions, recommended exactly what to focus on and what is not so great in terms of sightseeing, got us past the massive tour group queues at Catherine's Palace and gave us an amazingly interesting tour. Her arrangements for our troika ride were perfect - thank you Kristina!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Annette! Thank you so much for your comment, it was my pleasure! We were so much lucky for Troika Ride in indeed Russian FairyTale! SO happy for you! :)

Kristina was the best guide we have ever had for any private tour. She teaches Russian history at the university, and she is amazingly knowledgeable about every museum and castle on the tour, and she can answer any and all questions you might have about her beloved city. Kristina is friendly, charming, she has a comfortable Lexus for touring, and we recommend her very highly. You will be as delighted as we were - guaranteed.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: oooh, Donald!!! Such great words! Thank you so much!!! My pleasure to have great conversations with you :)

Kristina is a lovely lady - thoughtful, considerate and extremely knowledgeable. She made our stay in St Petersburg very memorable. We were a family of 4 (including two children under 12yrs old) and Kristina went out of her way to ensure the itinerary, visits and activities appealed to all - in fact our children have not stopped talking about what a lovely time they had. It is a pleasure to highly recommend Kristina - I guarantee that you will be very well looked after.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ooo, John!! Thank you so much for your warm words!! My best wishes to your great family!

Kristina was great - from planning our tour to running it. She was flexible and thoughtful about how to make the itinerary work for 2 adults and 2 children (10 and 7) and when we arrived was hugely engaging with us and the children. Kristina offered real local and historical knowledge, and made our time in St Petersburg very enjoyable. I have to say, given it was Navy day on one of the tour days, she also found ways round unexpected challenges (like bridges not being down)! Thank you.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Ben, thank you so much!! I enjoyed your stay so much! Navy Day was a great challange:)))) My hugs to all your great and warm family!
We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 day tour with Kristina. Her knowledge of Saint Petersburg was extensive and she told us many interesting stories. She also took us to many places during the tour and we were pleasantly surprised by our trip to the subway. We would highly recommend Kristina as a tour guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Ricardo, thank you for all your kind words!
Scarlett FreundUnited States
Kristina M was an outstanding guide! Punctual, knowledgeable, courteous, patient, great sense of humor. She timed each stop perfectly so we were able to visit every intended site. She had creative ideas for alternative sites ( we've been to St. P. before) and took us to the Pavlovska Palace (which we adored!) and the gallery of Karl Bulla, which in addition to great historical photos has a magnificent view of the city. Than you, Kristina, for our great time in St. P.! We hope to see you again!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Oh my, oh my! Dear Scarlett, thank you so much for all your kind words!! For your requests, which were great! I am looking forward to see you again!
Miriam MurrayUnited States
Kristina went out of her way to help us. She was extremely knowledgable about St.Petersburg. I would recommend her to everyone.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Miriam! I hope the rest of the tour was great after you have got your luggage back :))
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: :)
I can't think of anything that Kristina could have done to give us a better tour, except perhaps make the weather better. Friendly, knowledgeable, flexible, very efficient and a sense of humour. Highly recommended.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Steven, my big pleasure!!!:) It was great! Thank you for your invitation to the opera!! It was great!
Kristina made our visit to St Petersburg the highlight of our Baltic cruise. She was very informed on historical facts as well as current affairs. She organized us well, was flexible on making changes to the program and was fun. There was not a question she could not answer and we had many questions. Her English was excellent. Her recommendations on planning the program were excellent (eg visiting the Hermitage Friday evening when less crowds). We all missed her when the tour was over. Thank you Kristina
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: oooo, my dear Lorna, thank you so much for all your kind words! I hope to see you again! I am ready to have more fun!! It was great! Thank you!! :)

Alison HarrisUnited Kingdom
Kristina was incredibly informative with the big and the small details. We have learned a lot about the city and country which we would not have done without her. She was very organised and punctual and looked after us extremely well. We loved the tour which she customised for us. Worth every penny and highly recommended. She was relaxing and great company. It has made our trip. This is our first trip with a guide and this experience means it won't be the last. Thank you!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Alison and Jo, it was indeed a great tour! Great for me to meet you:) It was hard to say I was working – I enjoyed both days with you! Definitely will remember your stay :) Thank you for your words!
David DaltonUnited Kingdom
I can't recommend Kristina highly enough. She was organised, punctual, helpful and had the patience to answer my endless questions abut St Petersburg and Russia. We spent the day with her at Catherine Palace and Peterhof. She also helped us gain access to the Smolny Institute, which is a tricky thing to do if you don't speak Russian. Katrina's English is excellent and she responded to all emails promptly. If you need a guide in St Petersburg, look no further.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear David, thank you so much for your feedback! For all your words:) was great to answer indeed great questions!!
