Helena is outstanding. I highly recommend her. We used Helena for a 2 day tour with a group of 20 people coming off a cruise ship. She was bright and funny. She tailored our tours to a few of our last minute ideas. We decided to ride the subway as an idea on the fly idea and she added it. She arranged a souvenir shop to be open just for our group so we could shop without crowds. She is a trained Hermitage Museum guide. Extremely knowledgeable and got us into the museum 1 hour early. Fantastic!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Scott, Thank you very much for your warm and kind feedback! It was pleasure meeting you and your group! Helena

We spent a terrific day with Helena - all that we could have asked for. We had asked her to take us to the Peterhoff Gardens and Grand Maket, and to some non-touristy places that locals might go to. So as well as the 2 specific sites, we had lunch in a cafe in a small shopping centre, visited a farmers market, and explored some of the city. Helena is very knowledgeable and seems to enjoy showing her city to others - and she has a great sense of humour! We would recommend her to anyone.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Jocelyn, Thank you very much for such warm and positive feedback!

Helena was very hospitable and friendly. She spoke prefect English and understood us very well. She put up with a lot of my questions. . . I tend to ask many. :-) She knows St. Peterburg very and helps us plan a very rememberable day.

Helena did a fine job of showing us around Russia with a fantastic knowledge of Russian history. I would have no problem recommending her to my friends and family.

Excellent 2 day private guide. As I was highly interested in art, architecture, textiles and performing arts, she customised a day tour which encompassed sightseeing of the major city buildings, churches and cathedrals as well as a visit to the impressive Ysupov Palace and Theatre museum. As well as being a very organised tour guide, she gave good advise on where to eat and shop. Highly recommend!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Ana, Thank you for the two days we have spent together. It's a great pleasure for me to meet artistic people and share the same spirit. I am really happy you liked our tour. I wish you good luck in your new projects! Welcome back!

My husband and I very much enjoyed spending 2 days with Helena. From the moment she greeted us at the airport with her broad smile and easy laugh, we knew the tour would be fun and informative. Helena broad knowledge and ability to tell a story gave me and my husband a real feel for St. Petersburg and it's people. History come alive while walking through the magical gardens at Peterhof, and her personal experiences growing up Jewish lent depth and perspective to her charming and insightful narrative.
