Elena was very accomodating for customizing my tour and very knowledgeable. I got to see all of the hightlights of St. Petersburg and more! It was a short trip for me but I definitely recommend her as a tour guide. Thanks Elena!

As part of our Baltic cruise, we booked a 2-day St. Petersburg tour with Elena. Those two days were the highlights of our cruise! With Elena's planning, we were able to experience the most interesting sights, a private(!) boat tour, lunch in a charming local restaurant and so much more...all without waiting in lines. Elena's knowledge of history and art was amazing as she guided us thru the Hermitage, Catherine Palace and Church On Spilled Blood. Highly recommend!

Elena was a great guide. My family and I did a three day tour with her. She was super knowledgeable, time efficient, and applied logical sequencing to the order of the site visits. She also picked great lunch locations, souvenir shops, and helped with a special dinner reservation. Highly recommend.

A great tour, especially if you're interested in Russian art and history. Knows her stuff.
Elena was incredible! Our tour was for just one day and even we only had to do the Hermitage, The Church of the spilled blood and St. Isaac's Church, we did much more!! We did the tour walking (which I totally recommend) and she took as to nice shops and places near by, for me this where the best hints of the city. She explained the history (which is sooooo long) in one day trying to achieve the most important points and which relevant for us to understand everything that we were seeing. EXCELLENT!

This was an excellent tour and Elena was all we could ask for in a guide. The tour was both well planned and slick in its operation and Elena was very knowledgeable and kept us well informed throughout. I would not hesitate to recommend this tour and Elena to anyone visiting St Petersburg.

It was so pleasant to spend 3 wonderful days together and I'd like to wish you a lot of new exciting journeys and all the best! Thank you for choosing me!
elena was knowledgeable and competent. She also gave us some tips for our stay.
Well informed but very ridged with her guests.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mr. Qubain, Receiving a lot of compliments, kind words and even invitation to visit some members of your party, I was really surprised to get your comments. I consider myself as an organized person and maybe you took it as rigid. Sorry! Your feedback is very important to me and I continue to work hard to heighten my professionalism.

Elena is a wonderful guide who planned three perfect days in St. Petersburg for our group of four. When Catherine's Palace was not available to tour due to crowds she recommended Pavlovsk Palace that was a wonderful palace with nearly all of the furnishings intact. We were able to see how the czars lived and their amazing collections. On the day that we toured Yusupov Palace she took us to a local Russian Pie cafe that we all enjoyed. Our group will fondly remember our three days with Elena for many years
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Nancy and Susan, Harvey and Kent! Thank you so much for coming and for choosing me. It was a great pleasure to spend time with so intelligent and smart people as you are. I really enjoyed your company and want to wish you all the best. Come to St-Petersburg again!
